A Christmas Manly Card and one New Year Card in Purple

I was panic yesterday still need some christmas card to send to my friends in Germany...with the post normally they are fast ...one or two days it will come to the recipient..also here is my hurry card for a friend of mine he is a man :) , I use the Papetrey Ink Super Stripes Stamp Set (dear Cornelia thanks for help me to have it :) ) and I made this plaid card:

I stamped first my plaid background (because this is my first time to use my Stamp Press from Fiskar = also sent from Cornelia, this was not so successful), then I use a gold sticker on a green paper and use my ruler to make the brown paper looks like the postage stamp. This card is for a challenge at The Male Room #25 with theme Christmas.

Other Challenges for my card:

Die Traum Fabrik #15: Eine Weihnachtsgeschichte

Cards und More #122: Alles rund um Weihnachten 

Lawnscaping Challenge #96: Merry Christmas


The second card I made is a New Years card cause for Christmas card, it will be too late if I send this card out side of Germany. 

First I started to stamped the fireworks and gave white embossing powder. Then sponged the white paper with two different shade of distress ink.   

The Skyscraper is from Pia, dear Pia many many thanks for sent me those lovely die cuts I will use it one by one and off course will mention your name if I use it. You are so generous to me my sweet friend.

Challenges for this card:

Inkspirational #72: Photo Inspiration ( I Jump after seen the Photo Inspiration cause I love Purple much and anything with purple is welcome in my mind LOL... also I directly have Idea at that minute I've seen this Photo Inspiration)

Loves Rubberstamp #131: Holiday Blitz Antyhing Goes
