Geared Up Garage

‘Geared Up Garage’…WOW! Great stamp set by Stampin’ Up! to use for those men that are into anything to do with cars. It is so much fun…with the gears and the vintage style signs for ‘Fathers Day’ or ‘Birthdays’, the car, tool box and oil can.

This stamp set is part of the Geared Up Garage Cling Bundle from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue. Just look at those dies….LOVE the gears. I have a house full of boys so this set was a must for me.

You can also purchase this 15 x 15 cm Designer Series Paper and the dies match some of the designs. The gears fit perfectly over the paper with gears, so you can cut them out and add to your card just as I have done in one of my cards below.

These products plus more are in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue, by purchasing the stamps and dies as a Bundle you will save 10%. The good thing is the stamp set and dies will be carrying over to the New 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue..but not as a bundle (it will have new ordering codes). So if you want to get the bundle and the Designer Series Paper then order it now!

Fridays Card Class

Last Friday we made the cards below using the stamps, dies and designer series paper.

On this card we cut the gears from the Foil Paper that I got from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue. Unfortunately that is now discontinued but you could use any of the other Foil Papers. The car was stamped in Momento onto Whisper White cardstock and coloured using the ‘Real Red Blends’, then cut with the coordinating die. The sentiment was cut out using the Rectangle Stitched die also found in the Occasions Catalogue.

TIP: When using DSP or coloured back grounds and you don’t want the white boarder around the stamped/coloured image …Run the brush tip end of the ‘Light Smoky Slate’ around the image before cutting. It will then blend into the background. See pictures below.

This card shows off the Designer Series Paper, used as the card front and the paper with the Gears cut using the matching die . Again we stamped and coloured the car with ‘Blends’, but this car has a sheen.

How did I do this!

  • Stamping and colouring the car – DO NOT CUT IT OUT
  • Wipe VersaMark ink pad across your image a couple of times making sure its well covered,
  • Sprinkle on ‘Clear Embossing Powder’ and heat with heat gun, until it has all melted.
  • When cool and dry cut out the car with die.

The ‘All Geared Up to celebrate’ sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock in full strength Gray Granite, Oil smudges stamped with stamped off Gray Granite Stampin’ Pad to give a grunge look. Using the Star Burst Punch, punch out the sentiment and add some Black Thread looped on the back and adhered to card front with dimensionals. The car was glued to the to the Star Burst and a dimenstional added to under car front.

This last card we stamped the Happy Fathers Day sign in Tranquil Tide first, masked it of with ‘Post-it-Notes’ (cut using the matching die) and then stamped the oil smudges with Gray Ganite Stampin’ Pad- which was first stamped off. The nuts were stamped with the Basic Gray Stampin’ Pad. Peel of the mask. On a piece of Whisper White Card Stock Stamp and colour the car with Light and Dark Balmy Blue Blends, cut with die and adhere on top using dimensionals.
