Creation Station: monuMENtal

Good morning and welcome to another Creation Station Blog Hop!  Our theme this month is monuMENtal.  We are creating cards for men (or little men).  

I'm not sure if anyone else is like me but I rarely make masculine cards.  I'm not really sure why.  Perhaps it's because I gravitate towards products that are more feminine or maybe it's simply because I don't currently have many sets that could be used for guys.  

This card is very basic.  The only super fun feature is the porthole.  I shared a tutorial on my blog last year and thought I'd bring it back again this year.  Portholes are lots of fun and they look pretty cool.  I love that pretty much anything can be stamped to appear as though it's outside the porthole.  
To create the ocean scene in this card- I used several stamps from High Tide.

Once again- a combination of Cajun Craze and Early Espresso in addition to the Touches of Texture Stamp Set were used to distress the porthole.  The Rhinestone Basic Jewels act as "bolts".  

Thanks for stopping by!
Why not continue on our hop!  There are lots of amazing projects to be seen today!  Next up is the fabulous Dena Rekow!


  1. Love your distressed porthole! Great card.

  2. I'd say you had just the right amount of "guy" stamps!

  3. Wow--I was so fascinated by the porthole that I completely forgot to look "outside" the window! Your little scene is perfect! Love this! xoKathyxo

  4. Did you hear that? That's me picking my jaw up off the floor! OMG Dani! Your distressed porthole is spot on! High five for your fabulous card!

  5. Oh my that is the absolutely cutest porthole ever ... I am now going to have to find your tutorial and make one for myself - love it!
