Default Cards for Boys

I am looking for ideas on cards for teenage boys. I have 3 of them with birthdays coming up and would like to create something for them. I am also in need of cards for men that aren't all hunting and sports related.

I have 2 teen boys of my own and lots of nephews. I use classic convertibles the most! I also use smile, wolf, fore (golf), and fishy friends. Loads of love is on my wish list also!

Those all sounds awesome. Are all of those ideas in the current SU catalogue? If not does anyone have ideas that are from this one. I am knew to the SU stuff but absolutely love it.

Default Not Stampin' Up but.....

I have a large birthday cake stamp that I have done for kids and teens and adults. By using different backgrounds and varying the colors, you can make a birthday cake for almost any age.

of the current SU sets, I think the little truck is cute....now if only I could think of the name of that set! It has stuff you can put inside of it or you can get crazy and mask it and stick a gift package in the bed of the truck. Jan

Loads of Love and the accessories. Or geometric shapes...I use these a lot for masculine cards. There are several in the catalog...circles/squares, etc. Do 'em up in darker, more masculine colors and they're great! I use Noble Deer a lot, too, and Lovely as a Tree.

Thanks ladies it has been a great help. I noticed that CTMH has a few more sets more "teenage boy" oriented as well. Two of my boys aren't into alot of the stuff in the current set of stamps in SU - hence my struggle. The one is a piece of cake...lol. Anyway keep the ideas coming I appreciate them

I just made a birthday card for my 14-year old grandson using Computer Quips. Unfortunately, I neglected to upload it before I sent it off to him.

That would be a great set as well. Totally forgot about that one. Wouldn't it be nice if there was a set out there related to video games??

The TAC catalog has a lot of good "boy" sets- but I don't have any of them.

This is the only card I've ever sent to a boy. http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=69416

I got this one from a swap (I love this sentiment!) and it would be good for a boy- http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...65318&cat=8010 of course- you'd have to send it late

You could use Eat Cake, and add a layer (or two), since as teenagers, they'll need to eat even more! (yes, I have a teenage boy!).

As somebody said, Loads of Love is another great idea.

Unless these boys are different than "normal", don't spend too much time on the card ... they will not appreciate the work you have done.

I have made some cute teen boy cards with the surfboard from the Do the Hula set. I think the Alphabet Soup- Happy Birthday works well for guys and so does the Artifacts set.

I like this idea ... forget the image, and just use the funky words in Alphabet Soup (if you have it) or Alphabet Stew or Happy Everything.
