A boy card bonanza!

Well after tomorrow's post, it will be a bonanza of two cards, but where boyish stamping is concerned, anything at all is an abundance as far as I'm concerned.  Actually if we include the one from the last Challenge Chewsday, the comments on which reminded me that I had these other two tucked away and in need of posting, that will make three.

Everybody happy with that?

Right then...

Here is a card that I made for my nephew who turned eight a couple of weeks before Christmas.

I tend to always combine shades of blue, red and green in boy cards, the colours in this instance being Pacific Point, Bashful Blue, Pear Pizzazz and Real Red.

I even managed to sneak on some ribbon and glitter (some habits are just too hard to break, boy card or not) but I don't think it girly-fies it too much, do you?

So tell me, what are your go to colours/stamp sets/techniques for blokey stamping?  I'm taking an informal survey just for the good of stampin' education everywhere and not even a little bit for my own personal inspiration.

Promise.
