Stack of Guy Greetings - Stampin' UP Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome back to the Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! We are finishing up on our April 2015 box from Stampin' UP. This box was full of more brand NEW products from the Stampin' UP Occasions Catalog and some Annual Catalog products as well! This month, we Artisans have select a certain product to showcase each week. You will see one product created 16 different ways so get ready to be inspired to buy and use that product! Every Thursday of each week, all 16 of us from all over the world will post on our blogs an inspiring project for you! Be sure to get Google Translate so that you can read in your language all about how they created their projects too. Now on to my projects this 5th week...
Our focus this week was on the stamp set called Guy Greetings from the Occasions Catalog. I was so happy with this stamp set cause I was able to stamp a stack of several cards for all the "guys" in our lives. I used the same layout for each, just switching the focus color or stamp image for each of them. I tried to make each card unique to each of the guys. I added the vellum layer to soften the stamped background.
This one is for my Dad. I stamped the words DAD GRANDPA and FATHER on a diagonal over and over in Baked Brown Sugar. Then added the vintage car image in Tangerine Tango. My Dad's favorite color in that burnt orange and he builds race cars. Hence the car version for him.
This one is for my brother. See the words on the background have changed to BROTHER UNCLE FATHER. He is also a race car builder and I select the Lost Lagoon for his color. He is a pretty cool guy.
Then I moved on to some other images from the Guy Greetings Stamp Set for more guys.... 
This one is for my brother-in-law. Another background with UNCLE BROTHER FATHER, Crushed Curry for his love of the Steelers, and those dapper shoes because he is a fancy hardworking top executive at IBM. 
This one is for my husband. He is a FATHER HUSBAND DAD, like this shade of blue and loves his hats! (He has quite a few of these showing on the card)
And last is for my dear family friend Turner. He is a wonderful FATHER DAD BROTHER (husband too), loves to tinker with tools and likes that orange tone (his hair color too).

I am so glad to have my Father's Day cards done even before Mother's Day! 
Thanks for stopping by! I hope this inspires you to create with the Guy Greetings Stamp Set!!!

These are fantastic! Love how you personalized the background for each guy in your life! My "masculine may" class is on Tuesday and I might have to just case one of these for my guy cards! Thanks, Cindy!

I love this! The vellum overlay really makes it over the top but still so clean looking.
