Broke Stampers Unite 020619



Hello Everyone and Welcome to this weeks Broke Stampers Unite Challenge. This is "Theme" week and given that it's February the chosen topic is Valentine/Love.

I just recently got this Geared Up Garage Suite and thought it would be fun to use it for today! Vroom Vroom!

I started with a base of Real Red cardstock. and I cut a strip of the Classic Garage 6 x 6 paper. It's 5.25 x 2.5. I then decided to stamp the card all over the background. It looked way better than it just being a solid red. I stamped the card in black Momento ink and colored it in with the dark real red stampin blends marker. I used a touch of the Light smoky slate on the wheel rims and then a little light poop party for the windows, then I cut it out with the matching Garage Gears thinlits. I added dimesionals to the back of the car and stuck it down. Next I used a strip of crumb cake clasic weave ribbon and over the top of that I put the sentiment that I stamped in real red ink of some whisper white cardstock and cut it out with the logo thinlit. So when you cut it out it also has a frame around it....that's where you get the little white wings but it cut's out the center part and that's where I stamped. There's a word bubble shaped thinlit that I cut out of basic black and layered in between the two white parts. It sounds confusing but if you were doing it like I explained it would totally work LOL Trust Me I'm a professional hahahahaha. Those pieces were all layered with dimesionals and in the next photo you can kind of see the layers I'm talking about...


I thought about putting some hearts on the card bit....I liked the more manly look without the hearts. I'm going to have a lot of fun with this set I can tell. With the great looking DSP and all the parts I'm sure I get get some good masculine cards from it. Let me share a look at the Stampin' Up! photo for this set.


Oh and here's a tip....if you look at the card that's crumb cake with the black car on it. It's actually an image that's on the DSP and they just cut it out and layered it on. Same with the motorcycle. Cool right???? I love product suites that are versatile like that.
