Cute Stamps on a Masculine card

I don’t know about you, but I am drawn to cute stamps with cute images. There is nothing wrong with cute stamps, but every once in a while, I do have to make a more masculine looking card and then I am at a loss! So my challenge to you is to find ways to use your cute stamps on a masculine card. I used the Symbols set which includes a cute candle, present and cupcake. Several ways to make it less cutesy is to stamp the images with brown ink, ink the edges brown and use masculine embellishments like jute twine instead of ribbon and metal instead of flowers.

Stamping the sentiment with the Sigh Gush Gasp set right on the masculine patterned paper also helps add to the look:

If you have other ideas about how to manly up your cute stamps, I’d love to hear them and if you take this challenge I’d love to see them!
