Two 4 Tuesday -- From Mom to Boy ***edited by CeeCee***

*** hey everyone! It's Gen's birthday today so I just thought I'd pop in after she did her post to wish her a very very happy birthday and I hope her day is less heavy than the past week (she's got 2 sick babies on her hand and the heat wave is still going strong). So join me in wishing her a very happy birthday. Bonne fête, Gen! We all love you and are thoughts are with you! ***

Two for Tuesday features 2 projects that are similar in either color, theme, layout or embellishment but... with a different twist!

Hi everyone,

Today I decided to show you how easy it can be to transform the theme of a card... I used the same layout, the same colors and same DSP, I only changed the stamp set and look I started with a mom card and went all the way to the young boy card.
Old olive, Rich Razzleberry and Pumpkin Pie what a great combination. I really love the effect on the Whisper White cardstock. This card was made using Apple Blossoms level 2 hostess with a piece of build-a-bear retired paper, a half back pearl and I'm done.
Choochoo was just perfect to transform this card every thing else is the same. Just so you know, boys too are allowed some ribbon just change the bow for a knot ;O)

I had a lot of fun playing with the little puffs of smoke, in order to make them "fade away", I simply used the second, third and fourth ink of my stamp...love so much this feature of the Stampin' Up! Classic inks, I really have to take advantage of it more often.

So next time you struggle (as I often do) to do a boyish/manly card, just look with a different eye to your girly creations!!!
Have a nice stampin' day!

j'adore cette combinaison de couleur! Puis le génie de transformer une carte en une autre. Et les petits nuages de fumée aussi. :)

Idée fantastique, madame! J'adore ces cartes. Eh oui, même avec tout ce qui se passe, tu restes un génie!
Bonne fête, ma belle! j'espère que ta journée sera quand même agréable et je t'envoie plein, plein, plein d'ondes positives pour que tout se rétablisse chez-toi!

Bonne fête Gen!!!!!!! Crime, me croirais-tu si je te disais que ça fait 2 semaines qu'il n'y a pas une seule journée où je ne me dis pas: "Je me demande c'est quand la fête de Geneviève." Et c'est pas des blagues. Je l'ai juste appris 1 journée trop tard...ou une semaine, si on compte le temps pour faire la carte et l'envoyer. Ne m'en veut pas, mais là j'ai pas dormi de la nuit alors ca ira à l'année prochaine. :) En attendant j'espère que tout va pour le mieux pour toi et j'espère que tu as quand même pu profiter un peu de ta journée!!!! Gros bisous!!!!!!
