All geared Up with Stampin Up's NEW stamp set

Image
I'm always happy to see NEW Stampin Up products geared (see what i did there?) towards our male friends and family. They are the card designs i struggle with the most.
This coordinating 'Classic Garage' dsp, 'Geared Up Garage' stamp set and 'Garage Gears' thinlits dies make it nice and easy to create great cards with minimum effort or fuss.
I took a piece of  'Basic Grey' cardstock and using black ink i stamped some random oily splodges. A strip of the dsp was adhered across the middle of the card ready for the flashy red car to be added.  I stamped the car image first then coloured in using 'Real Red' and 'Smoky Slate' markers.  The matching dies made cutting out the car image super simple with a quick run through the 'Big Shot' 

A simple card that could be adapted using different markers for the car, why not step it up and add some cogs / wheels cut using the thinlits too and add them scattered around the dsp?

Wishing you well - Christmas cards super quick

Image
Simply changing the colours and sentiment you use can alter a card from being a Birthday one to a Christmas card.
Same design i used the other day but this time i have used 'Cherry Cobbler' and 'Shaded Spruce' colours.
You could make a lot of these in a very short time, perfect for Christmas when you have lots to make.

Traditional style handmade Christmas card

Image
Another card today using the 'Wishing You Well' stamp set, this time to create what i think is a really traditional looking design. 
I love the way the wreaths remind me of Christmas as a child. I used 'Garden Green' ink and 'Cherry Cobbler' for the berries which come from the 'Peaceful Noel' stamp set. 
You could stamp a whole sheet of the wreaths and then cut them down to create numerous cards making then super quick to make. 
The pretty bow and sentiment are also in 'Cherry Cobbler' ink and mounted up on dimensionals.

Wishing You Well - Stampin Up stamp set

Image
If you like to make cards that are totally fuss free then the 'Wishing You Well' stamp is perfect. 
I've used 'Pear Pizzazz' and 'Mint Macaron' inks for this card.
The bow stamp is so pretty and i love the way it gives an impression of depth.

I think these are lovely little note cards.

Dino-rrific Birthday with Stampin Up 'No Bones About It'

Image
Slide Back Saturday - features 'No bones about it' stamp set. My little nephew can't talk yet but he loves doing his dinosaur 'roar' which makes us all laugh so this was in my mind when i created this card.
The two step stamps are layered over each other to create the dinosaur detail using 'Old Olive' stamped off once for the skin of the dinosaur and then just full strength for the bones. 
'Soft Suede' ink for the footprints and 'Tangerine Tango' adds a burst of colour for the sentiment.

All is Bright - red, green and gold

Image
Nothing says Christmas colours more than the traditional red, green and gold. The lovely dsp 'All Is Bright' has some beautiful papers in it but i really love this particular one which looks just like a photograph.
I didn't want to take away from the paper itself too much so kept it simple using a piece of dsp to cover my base card.


The sentiment from the 'Making Christmas Bright' stamp set is stamped in both 'Call Me Clover' and Real red' with the circle and stars around it in 'Crushed Curry'
'Layering Circle framelits' cut out the sentiment and then a larger scalloped circle in 'Gold glimmer paper' to make a mount.
Lastly the 'Sprig Punch' adds some texture to the card popping in the sprigs behind the sentiment. 


Very simple and quick to make.
