A Fun{stache}tical time playing with the Mustache

The Club Scrap London Calling kit had some really awesome images on the unmounted stamp plates. this month.    There are Tea Cups, Bicycles, Mustaches, Hats, Cars, Buses, and so much more.   I fell in love immediately with the bicycle.  However, today I had to sit down to make a birthday card for my brother and the mustache was the image I knew I was going to use.  OH my, I fell in love with this simple little image.   And I started playing.   Its amazing the variety of cards you can get out of this little image.

The first one I made was my brothers card,  I will say I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest found here.   

It just so happened that Club Scrap London Calling unmounted Borders and Backgrounds unmounted stamps had a cute little hat on it.  The collection unmounted stamps found on the Club Stamp kit had the cutest mustache.   I grabbed some Club Scrap paper I had in my stash and a Club Scrap India Ink Ink Pad  and got to creating and here is what I came up with, my own little Monocled mustached gentleman.:

 Then, inspired by Tiare Smith who uses each months collection to create Christmas Cards every month, I set out to create a Christmas Card with my little mustache.  Here is what ensued:

The card base and the cream paper is paper from my Club Scrap stash.  The red patterned paper is from my Christmas themed paper.  The Mustache is from London Calling Kit and the Ho Ho Ho is from a "Vintage" Club Scrap Christmas Collection who's collection name escapes me.  The inks I used were Club Scrap Ruby and Moss hybrid ink pads.

Last year when Club Scrap was moving I ordered one of those large mystery boxes.  I received lots of greeting to go component kits without the tags and cut outs.  I grabbed one of those and decided to make a masculine card for my pops.    It came together really, really well.  The "father" stamp is from Stampin up and the script background stamp on the background banner is from Club Scrap's London Calling Greetings art nouveau stamps.  I used Club Scrap indigo Ink, earth and ash hybrid ink pads:

Be sure to join us on February 25th for a London Calling Blog hop.
