A couple of weeks ago I posted about an activity I am doing with my downline called Mystery Parts (thanks again for the idea, Diana Gibbs). This is where one person in the group send the others some products to make a card. These products include Designer Series Paper, cardstock, embellishments and whatever you want to send. Then each of us makes a card and posts it on our Facebook Group. The idea is you have to use everything they send us plus add your own stamps, dies, punches, etc. It is so much fun that we decided to do it every 2-3 weeks.
These are the “parts” that Kim sent us.
It included Very Vanilla and Early Espresso cardstock, a piece of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper, Metallic Pearls and Linen Thread. I decided these “parts” would make a great masculine card.
I paired the products with the stamp set called Geared Up Garage. This stamp set has coordinating dies called Garage Gears. I first stamped the car in Early Espresso ink and then colored it with a Cherry Cobbler Blend. I stamped the cloud of smoke and the sentiment also using Early Espresso ink and cut it out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I also cut the DSP using the Stitched Rectangles Dies too. I attached the car using Stampin Dimensionals. I cut the gears out of Cherry Cobbler ink and added the Metallic Pearls to the middle. I am not sure how masculine that is but it worked. The last thing I did was wrap the Linen Thread around the bottom before adhering everything together.
Here is Kim’s card. I love the pop of Cajun Craze cardstock on it.
Here is Karin’s. That moose is perfect!
This is Karen’s. I love this one too!
This is Char’s card. Char makes very simple yet beautiful cards.
Here is Lynette’s card. I love it. I almost used this set and it works great with these products.
Aren’t they so talented? I love how each one is so different. We just got the parts for our next card so looked for the posts. It is so much fun!
Susan, your Geared Up Garage version is wonderful. I like your interpretation
Oh, I love your Geared up Garage card. It’s so perfect with the mystery elements! All of the cards are amazing!
I am so glad you are having fun doing these. Big hugs, Di
