A bit "tied" up at the moment....

This card was inspired by the latest challenge at The Male Room, which is Spots and Stripes. Now it may be a cliché but when I think of men and spots and stripes, I think of ties. A rummage through my stamps produced a stripey tie stamp, from the Papermania Heritage Press range. So that was the stripes catered for. But what about a spotty one? Well, I found some spotty paper, turned it over and stamped my stripey tie on the back. Job done!

The sentiment is also from the Heritage Press range - it had a tweed effect surround with pinked edges, so I trimmed that away and matted it onto scraps of red and blue to match my ties.

I'm sharing this with
The Male Room - Spots and Stripes
Crafty Creations Challenges - Four (four ties)
Addicted to Stamps and More - CAS
and last, but not least, Pixie's Snippets Playground  because  it's entirely made from snippets.


  1. Cool idea and perfectly CAS! Thank you so much for playing with us at ATSM!

  2. What a stylish card Jane - and such a good idea to stamp on the reverse of the paper to get the spots without the stripes too!
