Default Masculine Sets?

What sets do you use/recommend to make masculine cards? I was looking at my stamps and noticed that I don't really have much of anything to make men's cards.

I have Noble Deer, HAD to get that one. I've used it so far to make a set of coasters for my husband.

In the new catalog, I'm really hoping for a super antique tractor set!

I like Artifacts because it can go either way.

There is a sailboat set that I just used this weekend to do a OSW to have on hand. I used navy, artichoke, burgundy and a generic silver/gray. I should have them in my gallery later this week.
I also got Artifacts as a bday present from my sister. I will do a OSW with that set soon.

I'm getting Wild Fowl before it retires--but I have a lot of outdoorsmen/hunters in my family to use it for(I also have Noble Deer and love it . Otherwise, Lovely As a Tree is more neutral and can make more masculine cards. I'm hoping a new fishing set (not trout fishing tho) will be in the new catty!

I looked at Wild Fowl and considered it, but no one I know is into ducks/pheasants. Now, if they'd come out with a quail/wild turkey set, I'd be all over that!

Lovely as a Tree is on my wishlist, but I'm going to have to give some serious consideration to Artifacts. I've never even noticed that set before!

Lovely as a tree is a favorite of mine, as is Lovely Leaves (?) the set that is retiring.
I also love using the little hedgehog in Mini Mates with the hang-in-there sentiment for get well cards. Another fav for male get well or thinking of you is the set with the pickup truck (what IS that set called? How could I forget it's name?). I like to do the pickup in shrink art and make a card with the set saying - thought you could use a little pickup.
Another fav is the retired set Wildlife - it has tons of tiny realistic animals that are the perfect size for our tag punch.

Hmm. There just aren't enough masculine-type sets, are there? It is a problem! I have lovely as a tree, but I'm tired of using it for b-day cards. Wish I'd bought the convertible set when I had the chance. Let's hope there is more selection in the new catty!

I am a quail lover as well....Magenta had/has? the most glorious image about
2 1/2" square with 3 quails in a covy - very elegant. I use this with a stamp I bought unmounted (and I can't recall the company, sorry!) of quails moving over a grassy knoll. Makes an incredible masculine card done in monocromatic style...

I use either Noble Deer or Lovely As a Tree...I've also used Loads of Love...the SU masculine sets are sadly lacking...maybe in this next catalog, they will chuck most of the flowers and have some nice manly sets!!

It's About Time (from the winter mini catty) could also be used for masculine cards. Computer Quips and Words by Wilson are more lighthearted, but they could definitely be used.

SU hasn't had a good adult-looking train set since All Aboard retired. Coast to Coast was another good masculine set.

Maybe you can try some of the more neutral sets (Lexicon of Love, or make a geometric pattern with Fun With Shapes), and pair that with one of the background stamps (Houndstooth or Weathered).

I agree that SU needs some more manly sets!

I don't have too many masculine sets, but the three that I do have are Artifacts, Lovely As A Tree, and Balmy Breezes.

Angler is nice if they are into fishing. I also like Set Sail and Artifacts. Hoping for *several* new ones in July!

Where do I find Magenta stamps? The one you're talking about sounds great!

I'm going to have to look for some of these retired sets you all have mentioned. They sound intriguing!

I certainly hope SU will have some great masculine stamps sets in the new catalog. Anxiously awaiting to see it..............

I bought my Magenta quail stamp at a local stamp store (no longer in business ). The owner let me look through the catalog from Magenta (a Canadian company) and I picked out the ones I wanted.
I would say the best way to find someone who carries Magenta stamps, if your local stamp store doesn't, is to do a Google search. It may or may not be helpful, but there is a number handwritten on the wood of my stamp - here it is: 19027-I. It probably was the item number in the Magenta catalog.
Hope you find it, because it's a beauty. I'll dig around and see if I can come up with a link for you ... also will dig through some old receipts and see if I can figure out where the other quail stamp came from!

A lot of the vintage sets are geared for men. I also like Lovely as a Tree and some of the leaves sets. I also like the suggestions that have already been made. Good luck!

AddictedToRubberStamps sells Magenta, but when I searched for quail, only 1 stamp came up. They do have some nice turkey stamps though.

I too am hoping for some manly sets for brainy guys (and not computers) -- like a book set....I'd would *love* a book set.

For masculine cards I like Angler (which is retiring), It's About Time, Lovely As A Tree or any sets with leaves, acorns, etc. I am hoping that the new catty will have some nice masculine sets.

If your guy is a handyman, Power Up is a good set.

there are several good retired sets that I use. Times & Seasons and Tractor Time both have and antique tractor stamp. Then Pheasant Thoughts, Yukon, Wide Open Spaces and All Aboard are some others that I like.

I've been looking at the antique tractor sets on ebay. Unfortunately, they always go much higher than I'm willing to pay!

I'm going to check out that site for the Magenta stamps and see what I can find. I did a search on ebay and all the quail/wild turkey stamps were either stylized or cartoony, nothing realistic.

I got my Linen bg stamp today and am planning a Linen/Noble Deer b-day card for my bil.

A lot of you like the outdoorsy stamp sets -- but I can't bear them, to tell you the truth. Especially since I'm from Hawaii and the really woodsman type stuff just doesn't "go," KWIM? Besides, no one hunts or fishes in my family. These factors make it especially difficult to find stamp sets to make masculine cards. I've been pondering Artifacts -- but I'm not sure if I can do that collage style that so many of you are GREAT at. HELP!

I use Lovely as a Tree and the castle from Provencal (Hostess Set). I also use Toy Box (love the little alien) and In the Wild - both of which are retiring this July. I am tempted to get Angler before it retires, too. I think it is a nice guy set even if he isn't into fishing.
I've also seen some nice cards with Classic PickUps.

I am seriously lacking "manly" man stamps. I kind of like the horses, but like most of the others- sometimes it just doesn't apply.(As my Husbum says- guys are screwed once again.)
I too am hoping for new ones come July.
