Waltzingmouse May Pajama Party!

Are you staying up all night with us? It's time for the Waltzingmouse Pajama Party! I still can't hear that without thinking of staying up late, watching scary movies, eating popcorn, talking and laughing all night with friends. Sorry. I know I say that every time but it's the truth I tell you!!    I love Waltzingmouse Stamps and the Pajama Party is a great excuse to get out those stamps and create - it's really a win win situation because even if you don't win a fabby prize you have your Father's Day cards all done a whole month ahead!! Masculine cards are a little tricky for most of us too - so just think of all the great examples you're going to get to case!  

Here's the challenges and the different projects I made for the party!    


Challenge 1 - Man of the Moment   I can't resist this little guy with the mustache and the top hat... and his oh so British accent!  I say!! 
Make a card for the significant man in your life - he doesn't have to be an adult... We are looking for masculine themed cards for any occasion. For some more masculine inspiration see these sets at the store: Man of the HourMy Kind of GuyFree Spirit BoyHalf pint Heroes,


Challenge 2 - Surprise Him  Sorry I skipped this one!!  I kept thinking shaker card.. but didnt imagine too many guy friends who would want a card full of blingy sequins.   I'm going to leave the trixie stuff up to you!! 

It's all about men this month, and we're getting ideas together for Father's Day, so we want you to make a masculine project that has some element of surprise about it - an exploding box card, a pocket card with a concealed message/gift, a moveable element. This cute card has a flying rocket! See details of this card here.
Challenge 3 - Old Pajamas   Back to my monocle man and his google eye!  He is the perfect accent for any of the sayings from the Man of the Hour set!
Use one of your older Waltzingouse Stamps sets to create a project for this challenge! We'll be digging out our Man of the Hour, stamp sets for this one, and I used it on these projects above.


Challenge 4 - Bedtime Story sketch   This one was lots of fun!!! All my favorite colors paired up with Halftone Basics, and Kaboom!  What guy (young or old) wouldn't like these?  The backgrounds were fun and easy to stamp and so eye catching!
Here it is - Go ahead and create now so that your project will be ready to link up on the night of the party! This sketch features 3 co-ordinating tags with an all over stamped pattern and a smaller tag on top which carries the sentiment. We don't mind if you play around a bit with this - so long as the spirit of the sketch shows through!



I  can't wait to see what you made.  If you need the details or want to see the other projects linked up you can find them both here at the Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog!

Hugs to you!
