Today's stamp set, Big Trees, lends itself well to masculine cards.  I've made two of them, both stair-step cards.  The first one is a Side-Step Card.


I've used two different trees from today's set on my card today, along with images from several other MFP Stamp Shop sets -- Big Boy Toys, Scenic Selections, and Out of Time.

My second card today is a Center Step Card.


This is another set that has no sentiments, so I used the Happy Father's Day from MFP Stamp Shop -- Get Reel,  The reindeer is from a Christmas/Winter set called Crisp Winter, and the birds are from Scenic Selections.  The trees across the front are all the same stamp -- with lots of masking!

Now it's time to visit the blogs of the rest of the team.  Hopefully, you'll get some inspiration from everyone this month.  Be sure to comment so you increase your chances of winning a free MFP Stamp Shop stamp set.

I love both of your cards, they are beautiful. I like the row of trees at the bottom on the center step card. I like how you incorporated the truck stamp set with the trees on the first card.
