RED HOT ROD FOR MY GRANDSON

Well, I was disappointed to see that the Geared Up Garage Bundle is going away soon.  It’s a great set so I made good use of it to create this card for my youngest grandson’s birthday.

He’s turning 5 and is crazy about cars!  And what better way to delight him than with this bright red hot rod!  The greeting comes from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set which is also on the Retirement list.

Here’s a list of products used.

GARAGE IN A BOX

Happy April Fool’s Day!  Today’s post is no joke though!  I had fun creating this Garage in a box for card class tomorrow night.

The request was to make cards for kids and since kids like lots of colour and shapes this card should be perfect!

The Geared up Garage Cling bundle and matching Classic Garage Designer Series Paper Stack was lots of fun to play with! The greeting from Postcard Pals matched really well with the garage theme too!  I found the pattern for this on Splitcoast Stampers at this link and adjusted the measurements so it would fit into our Stampin’ Up! medium envelopes(107301).

Here’s the list of products used.

LETTERS FOR YOU

I’m taking a turn to a different kind of card today – this one uses the Letters for You photopolymer stamp set to create a card for kids.

I love it and also used a fun technique on it as well.  Did you know that you can emboss with framelits?  Well, with special layering you can!  Start with the Big Shot platform (no tabs), add a Standard cutting pad, a cardstock shim and then the Silicone rubber sheet.  Then lay your card layer down and add the framelits (cutting side up).  Layer another Standard cutting pad over top, add another cardstock shim and run it all through the Big Shot.  Presto – you have just embossed with a framelit!  (Click on the picture to see the background).

You can check out all of the Big Shot accessories I used in my Online Store.

I used bright colours to play along with The Paper Players Colour Challenge this week.

Here’s the list of all of the products that I used.

I hope you are inspired to give this Embossing with Framelits technique a try, it adds that little extra pop to your project!

Happy Stamping!
