Make it monday kissing challenge

Make it Monday Challenge:  Kissing!

I have decided that since I have so few masculine cards in my stash, I would focus all possible challenges on making some.   (last one I did was green and purple, so that one was out!)

So I started looking through my stamps for the background stamp to kiss.... wow, don't have one, but my celebrations set from forever ago does have stars and circles, so saved there. 

Next I look for a solid stamp, again, not an easy task.  But have masculine motifs, so guess we will settle on a boat for this card. 
The patterned paper in the background is from an old stack from walmart
So I used 3 sets, all papertrey ink.
Celebrate....and die.
It's a celebration....circles kissed to boat.
Masculine motifs....boat.

And of course, in front of the card is the cheek tickler made for me by my almost 5 yr old. 

So, could I give this to a make adult?  Or is the aqua mist with the brown look too "baby boy"?

I wasn't sure about trying other colors, but did anyways, with the limited amount that I have currently of papertrey ink colors.  I tried with spring moss and poppy and I think I like the spring moss the best.

Fabulous cards! I really love the boats, particularly with the middle one in a different color and design. I think they're all great for an adult male (the aqua mist one didn't strike me as a little boy card at all).

I love the circles on the boats. I also love that this was masculine!

Very pretty set Angie! I love the color combos- so fresh, yet classic!

Yes, you could give this to a man, the brown one is perfect and does not look too much like a baby card, not at all. Cheek tickler??? Never heard of it. :) Great card, and nice idea to use the boat.

I love that you turned this into a gift set! The one sailboat set apart by the kissing technique really makes a standout impression. Great job.
