Mashing Up Masculine

Its time for another Friday Mashup challenge and this week Kasey is bringing us the challenge! Here is what Kasey has to say:

Hi it's Kasey here, a big Hello from sunny North Queensland, and another first for me, I get to set the Challenge this week. I'm so excited to be bringing you one of my all time favourites. Just in case you haven't come across the term before...A Monochromatic scheme uses shades of the same colour or ONE colour plus a neutral. I for one don't make enough masculine cards, I prefer working with all the girly colours and bling, so in the theme Australia! and welcome to another Friday Mashup Challenge. I'm so pleased to be a full time member of the Friday Mashup Design Team of setting challenges... to Mash it up, make it Masculine.

1. Make a card with a Monochromatic colour scheme

2. Make a card with with a Masculine theme

3. MASH it all up and create a Monochromatic card that is for a Male!

I wasnt sure how I was going to handle this challenge. I knew I wanted to use a new set from the SU Summer Mini called The Open Sea...I fell in love with it the minute I saw it! I grabbed the Nautical Expedition DSP and just started from there. I mashed the challenge and used Not Quite Navy paired with some Whisper White and the DSP to create a Fathers Day card for my FIL. The ship was cut out and popped up with dimensionals.

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: The Open Sea, sentiment from King of the Grill, inside sentiment from All-Year Cheer I
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Whisper White, Nautical Expedition DSP
Ink: Not Quite Navy
Accessories: Not Quite Navy brads, sponge, dimensionals



  1. Lisa, like you I LOVE this stamp set, but we don't have it yet in fingers and toes are crossed that we do end up with it.

    Your inspiration card is such a wonderful combination of Monochrome and Masculine. I Love it! Cheers, Kasey ~ in Oz

  2. Great job!! Love how you popped up the ship! And great idea on the inside...that old sentiment looks great with this nautical, vintage look
