Shapes by Design

Good Morning friends!  I hope you are all well this Thursday morning.  I have a couple of cards I made on Tuesday.  I pulled out a really old set from PTI, Shapes by Design.  I think it was designed by Alli Miles.
 P1070163
My first card uses a craft base and a color scheme of dark chocolate, summer sunrise, and orange zest.  Its a little too 70's for me but it was a lot of stamping so I will give it out for the next guy birthday we celebrate.  If I were to do it again I would change the colors.
 P1070165
I like this next one a lot better.  Color scheme of New Leaf, Viridian Green, Dark Chocolate,Golden Harvest and Summer Sunrise.  Shapes by Design stamp set. 

I notice I am getting a lot of crafting done now that its summer.  I am also not working this summer for the first time in 5 years.  I miss my little summer jobs- but there wasn't anything to be had this summer.  However more time for relaxing and crafting.  We spent a very enjoyable day yesterday at my daughter's promotion from 6th grade.  One of her friend's parents invited us over for an impromptu BBQ.  It was really fun and its always nice to get to know the parents of her friends. As for today I am off to spin class in a few minutes.  I am completely rusty but its a great workout- for the body and the mind too.  Its good when your muscles are nice and sore.  (Or so I tell myself!)  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

I have never seen this stamp set before. Your cards are both so fun. I like that retro look, and I like both color schemes. I hope you enjoyed your spin class. I am addicted, and spend the entire class thinking about the cards I plan to make. I get my best ideas on the bike.

Nice work! I've only made one card using this set. I like what you've done!

Fantastic "male" cards...
maybe it's the colors...
but the design isn't too "fussy"...
and I just think they're perfect for those men in our lives...
young and old! :)
Either way...
they're both fantastic!

Very, very cool, Michele! I love getting a fresh look at an "old" stamp set--and now I know another one that will make great masculine cards too! Thanks for sharing!
