Welcome to the Creative Inking Blog Hop. This month we are showcasing the wonderful stamps and bundles from the Occasions Catalog and/or Sale-A-Bration sneak peeks.

I don't have enough masculine cards to send to grandsons and other family members, so I chose the "True Gentleman Suite". This is a stamp set/punch bundle and I love the Designer Series Papers that coordinate!

I kept the designs simple.

I fussy-cut a pair of glasses to add to the sentiment and mounted it on Night of Navy cardstock. I used the "Sparkle" embossing folder on Tranquil Tide cardstock. The card front is matted on Very Vanilla cardstock and adhered to a Tranquil Tide card base. The sentiment and cut glasses are popped.

I made a regular bow (cut off the ends real close to the knot on the back) out of 3/8" Classic Weave Ribbon to make this bow-tie. I used Very Vanilla for the card base and the card front is mounted on Crumb Cake cardstock.

Don't forget that the Clearance Rack has lots of new arrivals!  Now let's go see what great project Lori has created for us. Just click on the "Next Blog" button below.

Here's wishing you and yours the best Holidays ever!
