Hello Crafty Friends and Welcome to Mark's Finest Papers June Blog Hop!!
Today were featuring two great stamp set that can be use for any guy creations. 

My first card features this fun background stamp. Now my first thought was to use the who background but when I messed up and stamp one side I cut it off and I thought wow this looks good. So I went with a small panel with black layer for the image and sentiment. Which I like because it gives it that pop. Completed the card  using a polka dot embossing folder. 
 

Up next I'm using the small stamp set in this release. I use the larger gear to created this background look on a smaller scale. I thought the dotted Happy Birthday embossing folder worked best. Where the panel is its says Happy Birthday; but I wanted the smaller dots so I just covered it up. I created a folded banner by stamping my sentiments, scoring where the sentiment ends and then scoring again right after that line so that my sentiment can  look 3D using foam dots and glued the end down. Over all I love the banner. 

 Your next stop is Pam 

Here's the Design Team:

Clever idea to use only part of the big stamp. We must remember there are no mistakes in stamping, just creative changes!

I love the black and white theme with the gears on both of your cards! The tilted panel on your first looks great with all the stamped gears and fun sentiment and your clean and simple design on your second with the popped up banner looks terrific!
