Gear Up for Retiring Stamps …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you are enjoying your week so far. I’ve been busy having fun planning and creating more cards for my upcoming stamping events; the Retirement Party and then in May, the New Catalog Launch Party. First, lets talk retiring products, and today I have a masculine card to share …

Our masculine card today is designed from the Geared Up Garage stamp set and Garage Gear dies. Not only is it a great masculine card but it’s an “Easel” Fold card. The color pallet is simple: Real Red, Basic Black and Silver… oh yes, and a little Whisper White.

The amazing Garage Gear dies not only cut out the gears but emboss them so they have detail and texture which really jazzes up the card. Everything you need to start working on your cars are included in this duo.

Let’s take a look at another card. This is a fun “guy” card … the background was created with the stamps included in the set and really look like a stained garage floor!!

The greeting comes from the Geared Up Garage stamp set and was punched with the Tailored Tag Punch. I punched a second piece out and cut it in half so I could create a mat.

The silver strips were scrap pieces I used to highlight my greeting and my car … nice masculine card, or a girl who is into nice cars! Love me a classic.

I hope you enjoyed today’s masculine card using the Easel Fold. Now for the some fun upcoming events ….

Thanks so much for hanging out with me today. I appreciate the company!

Have a wonderful day ~

Kick Start My Heart …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you have kicked off your weekend with some fun festivities! I love this time of year … there is always something fun to do. This Sunday our home town is hosting a car show downtown, so I thought I’d pay tribute to my car lovin’ friends ~

I used the nuts and smudge stamps to create my background which sets the stage for my muscle car … all jazzed up and ready to go! I used Blueberry Bushel as a mat and coordinates with my car. I used the Stampin’ Write Markers to color the car. Both the cardstock and markers are on sale … see below.

The greeting comes from the Geared Up Garage stamp set and was punched with the Tailored Tag Punch. I punched a second piece out and cut it in half so I could create a mat.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card, and that you have a wonderful weekend.

Gear Up for More Stamping …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you enjoyed a wonderful weekend. I’ve been busy having fun planning and creating more cards and stamping events for you! First, I have a masculine card to share … it’s been a while so I thought this one would be a great card to kick off the week.

Our masculine card today is designed from the Geared Up Garage stamp set and Garage Gear dies. Not only is it a great masculine card but it’s an “Easel” Fold card. The color pallet is simple: Real Red, Basic Black and Silver… oh yes, and a little Whisper White.

The amazing Garage Gear dies not only cut out the gears but emboss them so they have detail and texture which really jazzes up the card. Everything you need to start working on your cars are included in this duo.

The Easel card fold is simple to create … you don’t even have to measure once you have your 4-1/4″ x 11″ card base cut and scored at 5-1/2″ (half) … now just fold your top piece in half again.

If you prefer: Begin with your card base cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″ and then score at 3-3/4″ and 5-1/2″. Then adhere your card front to the first section (or near the bottom when folded in half) … Only glue that part to the card front. This creates the stand. How you hold the card front up is by using one of the “gears” popped up.

I hope you enjoyed today’s masculine card using the Easel Fold. Now for the some fun upcoming events ….

I am so excited to announce the “Arrange a Wreath” Class. This class was designed for my regular class hosted in my home, or a virtual class. Both classes will include:

  1. Card Kit: All cards will be pre-cut and ready for assembly
  2. PDF Files which include Photos, Step by Step Instructions, and Ingredient List
  3. Access to Video Training! Learn step by step how to create the cards.

Please let me know if you have any questions with the “Arrange the Wreath” class. If interested message me below, by email or give me a call.

Now I have another event planned for you and it’s going to be a blast …

Again … contact me with any questions. I’m here to answer any questions that you may have, or to help you sign up for the class or take advantage of the cost savings by purchasing the “Around the Wreath” bundle. It’s one you’ll be thrilled to use over and over again.
