Today I have a sneak peek and some fabulous new product in just two more weeks (unless you are a demonstrator that is)!!
Geared Up Garage, one of the new bundles in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue that is so perfect for the men in our lives! This awesome suite of products is called the Classic Garage Suite and can be found on page 43. Besides the Geared Up Garage stamp set and coordinating Garage Gears Thinlits Dies, it includes Classic Garage 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, Black/Silver 1/4″ Striped Metallic Ribbon, Classic Garage Metal Elements and the Classic Garage Cardstock Pack, so much awesomeness in this suite of products!!
Today happens to be my brother-in-law Willy’s birthday, so I created this card especially for him.
Willy had a brown Cutlass (don’t ask me what year as I can’t believe I remembered the type of car he had way back when!!!) when he was dating my sister Anne. His car was his pride & joy, so when I saw this set, I knew I had to have it as it would be perfect for a few of the guys in my life. My father-in-law has an old car as well, it’s red, that is all I can tell you about it, ha-ha!!
To create the patterned paper with the gears on it, I used the die and the ink pad. You gently place the die on the ink pad to get some ink on the raised edges, then very carefully place it on your cardstock, press gently and then carefully lift it up and voila’, you have created patterned paper with your die!!
They showed us this technique at OnStage in November, yet another reason for demonstrators to attend Stampin’ Up! events, they teach you some pretty fabulous stuff!!
This stamp set even has a cool oil stain splotch, they really thought of everything with this suite!!
Here are the measurements for my card;
Crushed Curry cardstock base, cut to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″
Soft Suede cardstock, cut to 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″
Whisper White cardstock, cut to 5 1/4″ x 4″ Classic Garage Designer Series paper, cut to 5 1/4″ x 2″
Scraps of Thick Whisper White cardstock for stamping the car on, regular Whisper White for stamping the sentiment on and Soft Suede for layering under the sentiment
If you live in Canada and do not have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator that you currently work with, and would like a copy of the 2019 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration Brochure, please send me an email to request one, I would be very happy to mail one to you! Believe me when I say, this upcoming catalogue is fantastic, and you really do need your own copy to be inspired by all of the fabulousness in it!!
