Stampin’ Up! Geared Up Birthday for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! This is another installment of the Joint Blog Hop between the Happy Inkin’ Thursday and Happy Stampers Blog Hop ladies!  I hope you really enjoy all the inspiration you can get from our talented folks!

I decided to try out some more of the goodies from the Classic Garage suite – the Geared Up Garage stamp set with the bundled Garage Gears Thinlits and the Classic Garage DSP.  Did you know that the dies in the Thinlits will cut out the images on the DSP?  Well – take a look-see!

No cutting was fussy anywhere on this card!! 🙂

As usual, we had a sketch and a color challenge – and could use either or both.  I definitely used the sketch – and…sorta skirted the edges of the color palette!

             

I also think this dovetails perfectly with this week’s Watercoolor Wednesday Challenge!

I started with a piece of the Classic Garage DSP and embossed it using the large gear die in the Garage Gears Thinlits – using the Impressions Pad and thin silicone mat (the blue one) in the Big Shot Embossing Mats set.  Then I matted it on Pumpkin Pie with Liquid Glue for the card front.

The middle layer is another piece of the Classic Garage DSP, matted on Pumpkin Pie and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the banner, I used a third design from the DSP pack, cut it into a banner with my Paper Snips, and then added some faux stitches with my Journaling Pen.  It, too, is adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I cut the fun large image from the DSP using the large die from Garage Gears and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from Geared Up Garage, is stamped in Crushed Curry on Very Vanilla and cut out with the Tailored Tag Punch,  I added the faux stitches with the Journaling Pen and popped it onto the card front wit Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the embellishments – I cut another single gear from the DSP with a handy die.  Then I added two Classic Garage Metal Elements with Glue Dots, stuck the gear on with a little Liquid Glue, and adhered that bow tied with Black/Silver 1/4″ Striped Metallic Ribbon.  Yes, I DO think men CAN handle a bow now and then, especially when it’s all manly black and silver!  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from the new Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set in Crushed Curry to a Very Vanilla panel. Then I cut and adhered a couple more gear groups!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat and into my Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

On the front of my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, I added a “cloud” from Geared Up Garage in Crushed Curry.  Over that, I adhered a couple more gears with Liquid Glue…

…and then I added another piece of the Classic Garage DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This was already a fun suite of goodies – but…that the dies in the Garage Gears Thinlits MATCH the images on the Classic Garage DSP – well…THAT’S amazeballs! It really notches up the awesomeness of the Geared Up Garage and all its friends in the suite!  And – I know you’re going to love all the birthday sentiment options from Itty Bitty Birthdays!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Geared Up Garage Sneak Peek

Happy Saturday, y’all!  Today is our Quarterly in-person version of our Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team meeting!  I so look forward to these meetings each quarter – we have such a great group of ladies – both in Amy’s direct team and in my team (the Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew!) – and we all get together and have a wonderful time!  Oh – and it’s my day for Panera!  Love!

I know I’ll have some fun projects to share with you in the upcoming days!  Yes – we DO make cards at our meetings! 😉

Speaking of fun projects and sneak peeks, how’s about one today?  This is a new set in the Occasions catalog (coming on 3 Jan 18) that will be perfectly perfect for Father’s Day – or, for anyone that loves classic cars!  It’s called Geared Up Garage and it’s cool! Take a look-see:

The layout – which is perfect for the big gears die in the new Garage Gears Thinlits – is from the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge this week.

Check out this fun stamp and framelits bundle!

And there’s paper, too – called the Classic Garage 6″ x 6″ DSP!

So – I started with one of the more plain designs in the Classic Garage DSP and first embossed it in the Subtle Dynamic TIEF.  Then I used my Simply Scored board to create a grid.  I scored across the card front – lightly!! – at each inch.  Then I turned the paper 90 degrees and did it again.

The end result looks like asphalt.

Humor me!

With Liquid Glue, I matted the “asphalt” to a Blueberry Bushel card stock panel for the card front.

I used the big, detailed die in the Garage Gears Thinlits and cut out the large element from a piece of Galvanized Metallic Paper.  I also cut two smaller sets of gears at the same time.

With Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals, I popped the big gears onto the card front.

I adhered the smaller gear die (with the three gears) to the card front with Liquid Glue, then made a loop of new Black/Silver 1/4″ Striped Metallic Ribbon (available 3 Jan) and adhered it to the card front with a couple of Glue Dots.

The sentiment, from Geared Up Garage, is heat embossed in Silver on Blueberry Bushel, then cut with the matching die in the Garage Gears Thinlits.  I popped it over the ribbon and gears with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final, single, gear die cut is popped over the large shape with a Stampin’ Dimensionals.  To finish up, I adhered a little wrench embellishment from the Classic Garage Metal Elements with a Glue Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, I inked up the “cloud” (of exhaust?!?) image from Geared Up Garage in Blueberry Bushel and stamped it off once, then stamped a Whisper White panel.  Over that, I heat embossed a second sentiment in Silver.  Finally, I added some gears in Basic Gray ink.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Blueberry Bushel mat and into my Basic Gray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a full-strength Blueberry Bushel cloud and some Basic Gray gears on the front…

…and some more Classic Garage DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  What fun this Geared Up Garage stamp set and bundled Garage Gears Thinlits is going to be as we head into Spring!!  Anyone who appreciates a classic ride is going to love this suite of goodies!!  Hope you like – and will be adding it to your Wish List!

I’m sure sorry my poor little dog-a-lus has such a hard life.

It really is a pretty awful thing to see, I know.

I’m sorry.
