Last “Geared Up for 50” card

Howdy!

Finally, here is the last 50th birthday card I made from the Geared Up Garage Bundle and the Classic Garage DSP! Such a fun set! I really love this set and plan on making more cards and scrapbook pages with this set! Ok, not for awhile. I need to play with some of the other stuff I have gotten from the Occasions Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration brochure!! Speaking of which, can you believe we are in our last month of Sale-A-Bration?! Oh, no! If you haven’t gotten all the things you want, you better get on it! Click here to place your order and get FREE stuff while you can. It all ends March 31st! Occasion catalog goes until June 3rd, so you have a bit of time for that…although it makes sense to order what you want from the Occasions Catalog and get the FREE items from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. And, have you seen all the Sale-A-Bration Coordination items? So fun! You can see one of them here. Alas, they are all selling quickly and some are sold out. So, again, DON’T WAIT!! SHOP NOW! And please remember to use the March Hostess Code (4X6BB23E) if you are under $150.

On to the card!

And here is what it looks like opened…

Pretty cool, don’t you think? I was pleased with all three. The only thing I think I would do different would be to distress the balloons to give them depth. If you missed the Pop Up Box for my Hubster, you can see that here. And the spin fold card you can see here.

The colors I used were all the same: Crushed Curry, Real Red, and Basic Gray. For this car, I changed it up a bit and used the framelit to cut out one of the sports cars from the DSP. For my hubby I had embossed it in white and then used the framelit. This one has more of a chalkboard feel to it. The Happy was cut from the Happy Birthday thinlit. The Birthday was too big for the card. I am sure I will use it elsewhere. I don’t like to waste anything, so I keep all that kind of stuff. Just need to get it more organized so I can find it when I am looking for it! 

That is all I have for you today. Tomorrow I get to go scrapbook with some ladies whose group I just got invited to! I am beyond excited and happy to find a crafty group in my new town! It’s taken me 2 years, but I am rolling now meeting crafty folks and making new crafty friends! WooHoo! I’ll take pictures of my pages and share them here next week! Enjoy your weekend! I know I will!
Thank you for reading and taking this crafting journey with me! It’s nice to have you along! Enjoy your Stampin’, Scrappin’, and Craftin’ journey and feel free to share and CASE with me! I love to see what others create!

Blessings, June

ICS Blog Hop One Last Sale-A-Bration

Howdy!

It’s the first Wednesday of the month…you know what that means! We are back with another ICS Blog Hop! I love these monthly hops because it keeps me creating and I enjoy seeing what others have created! This month we are celebrating the last of the Sale-A-Bration time! Last month to get your FREE products with an order of $50 or more! I am going to showcase another card made from my favorite Stamp and Framelit Bundle…yep, Geared Up Garage it is! If you missed the first 2, you can check them out here and here.

My husband turned 50 and one of his friends did in November, and another turns 50 this week. They are getting together this weekend and my hubster is taking the cards to them. They are all long time friends, so I made special cards for each of them…all different, yet all with the same set since they are all in to cars in one way or another!

Here is the card for Shawn, who turned 50 in November.

And, yes, it is another cool kinetic folding card that I learned from Jan B! She rocks! I can’t remember what she called this, but the circle in the middle swings when you open and close the card. Stampin’ Up! used to have a framelit that created these cards (which I still own) but it was a smaller circle. I made bunches of cards with it back when I lived in Tucson, before I started this blog! Now I know how to make it by hand and can use any shape in the middle! This is going to be fun! I plan on making a lot more of all these fun folding cards that I have been posting lately! I need to get proficient at them for teaching in my classes! And, yes, of course, I will share them with all of you!

Here are some of the other sides of the card, so you can see it from all angles. Plus the envelope I made for his card too!

Besides the Classic Garage DSP, Geared Up Garage stamp set and Garage Gears thinlit bundle, I also used Basic Gray cardstock, the Happy Birthday from Happy Birthday Gorgeous, and the Balloon Bouquet Punch. Oh, and in my other posts, I forgot to mention the retired number dies that I used to cut out the 50. Not sure why they got rid of those, I like to use them for important birthdays and anniversaries! 

That is all I have for you today…be on the look out for that last card using the Geared Up Garage. Thank you for reading and taking this crafting journey with me! It’s nice to have you along! Enjoy your Stampin’, Scrappin’, and Craftin’ journey and feel free to share and CASE with me! I love to see what others create!

If you have been thinking about signing up for the awesome Paper Pumpkin monthly kit, NOW is the time! Next month is Paper Pumpkin’s Birthday and they always do something extra special for their birthday! This year it is a second stamp set in each kit! I love that it’s a surprise as to what theme I get in my box each month, and yet it is nice to have little hints like they did last month. This time they are telling us this to get us excited:

  • The March kit features eight full-sized, mailable cards
  • Coordinating colors are Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, and Poppy Parade
  • This kit has an element that is sure to “pop”! 
  • The FREE stamp set is even bigger and better than your typical Paper Pumpkin stamp set and can be used on a variety of crafting projects.

I’m thinking the “pop” may mean a pop up card. What do you think? I’m excited, are you?!?!

Happy 50th Birthday, Hubster!

Howdy!

Last month was my Hubster’s 50th birthday so I wanted to make a very special card for him. I had seen the cards that look like stuff popping out of the box, so I researched and found a tutorial…and now I want to show it off.

It’s called a Pop-Up Box Card and here it is…

Geared Up Garage Pop-up Box Card

I used the Geared Up Garage Bundle and Classic Garage 6×6 DSP to make it along with a 12×12 sheet of Basic Gray cardstock.

Geared Up Garage Cling BundleClassic Garage 6 X 6 (15.2 X 15.2 Cm) Designer Series Paper

 

This is definitely my favorite stamp set and framelit bundle in the Occasions catalog! This card was a challenge, mainly because I could only find 1 (very confusing!) tutorial video that used inches instead of cm. My scoring board doesn’t have centimeters, so I had no choice but to use the video. It took me so long because I had to stop and start it repeatedly. My first tutorial, when I get my video set up in place, will be this kind of card! I will make it simple and easy for you!

Here are some other pictures of the process:

After making the card, I had to make a special envelope to go with it! I found some retired 12×12 envelope paper and made my large envelope using the Envelope Punch Board. I love this thing! I make all my envelopes with it! Then I decorated the outside with some stamps from this set and a retired alphabet that I use mostly in my scrapbooking because of it’s size.

Besides the DSP and Basic Gray cardstock, I added some Real Red cardstock for the 50 and I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch for the balloons I cut out of the DSP. I also used white embossing powder on the black cardstock sports car. Hubster really liked how that turned out when I had made it for my first Geared Up Garage car (you can see it here), but then didn’t use it knowing I would want to use it on his card.

That’s all I have for now. I think I will call it good and move on to posting the other cards I made using this wonderful bundle! Thank you for reading and taking this crafting journey with me! It’s nice to have you along! Enjoy your Stampin’, Scrappin’, and Craftin’ journey and feel free to share and CASE with me! I love to see what others create!
