Just Add a new plane

At Just Add Ink the first challenge for the year is to use something new. 
There are plenty of new Stampin' Up products - many of which are free during Saleabration, and my first choice was a stamp set called "Sky is the Limit" because I always need lots of cards for the guys in January.  I have already made 8 cards with this set - it is definitely a keeper.
This first card was for a neighbour who (obviously) is celebrating his 94th birthday, so I got to use all of the sentiments on his card.

and this is the inside:

I tried using some retired dsp for the next two cards:

 and then used the retired Cloud embossing folder on this one.

and the inside:

That should do it for male cards for now,

Wow wow wow, Mary. What a fabulous line up of masculine cards you're sharing. I particularly love the pop of red in the dsp of your second card. You're certainly enjoying this new stamp set, and it's perfect for all those male January events you have. Thanks so much for joining the Just Add Ink blog hop this week. x

What a fantastic use of this set, Mary! All these cards are awesome. I love them all but would have to say that 2 & 3 are my favourite. They really have a vintage feel to them and are perfect for the men. Thanks for playing along this week at Just Add Ink. Rochelle xo

I can see you're having lots of fun with 'Sky', Mary. I can't pick a fave as they're all great masculine cards. I wish I was as productive as you too.
