Geared Up Garage

I haven’t posted a card using the Geared Up Garage in a while so I thought I would get it out again.  I just love those little gears.  I have no idea why.  I’m certainly not a mechanic and neither is Rob but I just think they are so cute.  I first saw them at OnStage in November and I knew they would be the first thing I would get.  Maybe it is because it is so hard to make a masculine card and this set is perfect for that.

To make this card I first cut out the gears using the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies out of Mossy Meadow cardstock.  I stamped the tool box in Gray Granite and cut it out using the same set of dies.  Then I ran a piece of Gray Granite cardstock through my Big Shot using the Hexagons Embossing Folder.  I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of Whisper White cardstock and used the Banner Triple Punch to cut out the end.  I did the same thing with a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock.  The sentiment is from the stamp set called Humming Along which is also in the 2019 Occasions catalog.  I just realized, as I am going through all my paper and can’t find it that the Designer Series Paper is from a pack in the 2018 Holiday Catalog and therefore, is now retired.  Oops.  Sorry about that!

Geared Up Garage and the matching Garage Gears Thinlits Dies are perfect for Father’s Day, birthdays and thank you cards.  You can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.

Sneak Peek

One of the things we talked about at OnStage a couple of weeks ago is about the different kinds of stampers.  There are three categories.  The first is the beginner stamper.  This person may have stamped a little before but they don’t really own any products and they are not quite sure how to even start.  Stampin’ Up!®  challenged us to think about beginner stampers and to make simple, one layer cards that a beginner could easily do and enjoy.

One of the stamps set we received for free while we were there is called Humming Along.  It is a new Cling Stamp.  Let me tell you.  These stamps cling to the block!  You are going to love them.  Here is what the set looks like.

This set is perfect for the beginner stamper (and all the other stampers too! I).  It can make simple cards, yet even the avid stamper will like it.  You can make thank you, birthday and get well soon cards using this set.  This set also has matching dies and you will be able to save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.  Of course, I didn’t use the dies on this card.

Here is a card I made using this stamp set for the beginner stamper.

I think this is a very simple, easy to make card, but elegant at the same time.  I used the Very Vanilla Note Cards and Envelopes.  These are great because they are pre-cut and already to be stamped.  I stamped the flower and sentiment in Night Of Navy Ink.  Then I colored around the flower using a Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend and colored the Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets with the Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blend.

If you are a beginner stamper there are so many products you can purchase through Stampin’ Up!® where you can make beautiful cards without a lot of supplies.  This particular stamp set will not be available until January 3rd but there are so many you can choose now.
