Papercraft Star Photo Inspiration Challenge and Dual Masculine Challenge

For the entire month of June our Design Team at Papercraft Star is being sponsored by Tradefish Designs , a company devoted to creating stamps with masculine themes, imagery and sentiments.

In recognition of these masculine stamps we are holding DUAL CHALLENGES all month long. As a participant in our challenges you can choose to create a project using the current challenge theme as it is written or take it a step further and use the challenge theme to create a masculine project, or you can even choose to enter two projects, one for the regular challenge and one for the challenge with a masculine twist.

As a special gift to the winner of each week's challenge, Tradefish Designs will award one stamp set (selected by the winner) to our top Papercraft Star too, so we hope you join us all month long.


For our inspiration this week, we have a photograph from Amy Atlas Events (above) and we are asking participants to use this photograph to inspire Anniversary or Wedding projects or use it to create a masculine project (or both).



I was inspired to participate in the dual challenge this month and used the inspiration photograph to create this "Grandpa" card that features stamps by our Design Team sponsor, Tradefish Designs. I chose to basically ignore the Anniversary or Wedding restriction of our challenge this week,  in order to create a masculine card because... I just had to use this week's gorgeous photo as inspiration for a Father's Day card that I planned for my grandson Jack to give to his grandfather.

I hope our participants in the challenges this month at Papercraft Star take advantage of our dual challenges for each week and feel free to step outside the box to create masculine projects using our themes for inspiration.

ooh, love this, Beth! What a perfect take on that inspiration photo. LOVE all the crisp white, and love the texture of the embossing. Great sentiment, too. Adore the little heart brads.
