ONSTAGE SWAP #1 – GEARED UP GARAGE!

As you might know I went to New Zealand recently for the Stampin’ Up! Onstage Live event.  It was a fantastic time.  You know what I love the most about these events?? Sure we get the new catalogue and we get to see the awesome new products BUT, THE BEST part of it is catching up with my Stampin’ Up! friends and meeting many for the first time.  Especially when you have chatted online.  It’s a fantastic time.

I will share more about Onstage shortly and show you some photos but for now I thought I would show you my Swap cards.  With swapping you create a number of a card and swap them with others. Swapping is a great time to meet up with other Demonstrators too. You get to come home with lots of different cards and ideas.

I made 2 different cards.  This is one of the cards I made.  It uses the Geared Up Garage Bundle.  I have shared lots of cards with this bundle over the last week or 2 while I was away.  It’s fitting that I share you this one first.

I made 3 different versions of this card.  Good to mix it up a bit when you make so many.  I embossed the card mat with the gear dies in the Garage Gears Thinlits and used the Classic Garage Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment was stamped and cut with the Bunch of Banners dies.

See the background?? I created this with the smooshing technique.  You can see how to create this effect in this post -> HERE.

I will share the other swap card next post so stay tuned.

GEARED UP GARAGE FOR FATHER’S DAY!

I know Father’s Day is a way off.  In Australia we celebrate it in September.  You might like to file this card away for later OR change the sentiment and it would work for other occasions.

The sentiment was stamped with Stazon on to Silver Foil Sheets.  It is important to use Stazon as the foil is slippery.  The foil adds a little shine to the card too.  It was cut with the Garage Gear Thinlits. I just looped some Silver thread on to the back of the piece and raised that up off the card.  I added a Classic Garage Metal Element.  I find the best way to adhere these to your card is with a Glue Dot.

This Geared Up Garage bundle makes the manly cards so much easier.   The Garage Gear Thinlits cut most of the images in the stamp set so you don’t even need to fussy cut them. Too easy!

The Geared Up Garage is $84.50 AUS for the bundle.  You can add on the paper and elements and Black/Silver Metallic Ribbon if you like too.  See them and order -> HERE in my store. Please use the  Host Code: P3TZFUNA

ENDS TOMORROW TO GO IN THE DRAW TO WIN THE HANGING BASKET SET.  RECEIVE ONE ENTRY FOR EVERY $50 ORDER.

Thanks for visiting me today.  I hope all is well with you in your corner of the world.

GEARED UP GARAGE WEEK – IT’S ALL GEARS!

Another project for our Classic Garage Week.  This one focuses on 2 different prints in the Classic Garage Designer Series Paper Pack.  Did you know these papers are 6″x6″.  Great size for your cards without feeling that you have to cut into a HUGE piece of paper.  We all know what that feels like right?? 😉

The black and white prints in this pack are quite striking.  I used 2 different ones.  I cut a piece using the Garage Gears Thinlits from one of the plain, coloured prints in the pack. Don’t forget to even add the bling for a man’s card.  These are the really cute Classic Garage Metal Elements.

Have you got this Suite yet?  It’s a great one for the men’s cards and we all know how hard they are to make.

The Geared Up Garage is $84.50 AUS for the bundle.  Add on the paper and elements and Black/Silver Metallic Ribbon if you like too.  See them and order -> HERE in my store. Please use the  Host Code: P3TZFUNA when ordering.

Orders over $78 will also receive the exclusive Tutorial Bundle with 12 great projects.  This will be emailed to you after you order.  

Thanks for visiting,

GEARED UP GARAGE WEEK – TOOL BOX BIRTHDAY!

This card uses the Geared Up Garage Suite and was a quick one to put together.

There are a couple of things I would change if I did this card again but hey! it’s for the blokes (so that is slang for the men).  Don’t be hard on yourself when you make a card for them.  They don’t really care. It’s got a car and it’s got tools.  It’s even got ribbon! Yes! even ribbon (the Black/Silver Striped Metallic Ribbon) on the men’s cards.

Once again like the last card,  I chose not to colour it so stamped the car on Crushed Curry card and cut it with the Garage Gears Thinlits.

See you again with another card for the boys using this suite,

GEARED UP GARAGE WEEK – DAY ONE – CLASSIC MUSTANG!

While I am away at Onstage this next week I thought I would share some cool men’s cards with the Classic Garage Bundle.  Cards for the boys are so hard to make aren’t they?? I hope these ideas help this week.

Today it’s just a classic car card.  So my husband tells me this is a Mustang.  He would know.  It’s just a car to me.  🙂

Anyway …  Here is the card.

You don’t need much with this card with this cool paper from the Classic Garage Designer Series Paper Stack.  And as I am not one for too much colouring I stamped the car on to Crushed Curry cardstock and cut it with the Garage Gears Thinlits.  This was layered on to a Vellum Oval cut with the Stitched Shaped Framelits.

You can have ribbon and bling on boys cards.  I finished it off with some Black/Silver Striped Metallic Ribbon and Classic Garage Metal Elements.

Have you noticed this suite in the catalogue? It is a great one for the manly cards and it is very simple to put together.

The Geared Up Garage is $84.50 AUS for the bundle.  You can add on the paper and elements and Black/Silver Metallic Ribbon if you like too.  See them and order -> HERE in my store. Please use the  Host Code: P3TZFUNA

Stop by for more cards with this suite over the next few days,
