Pedal to the Metal

Pedal to the Metal

When your Grandson is celebrating his birthday and he owns a blue Razr like this one, I just knew that I had to make this card for him!  He loves getting muddy as he “rides the trails” and I’m sure he has often had the “Pedal to the Metal”!!

This stamp set is made for a variety of outdoor activities so I’m sure that I’ll be using it for another masculine (and maybe feminine!) card!  Included are stamps for a truck and a motorcycle so when combined with textured embossing folders or Designer Series Paper (DSP) the possibilities are endless!

Here are the products used:

Here are the instructions and dimensions for this card:

  1. Cut Pretty Peacock Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
  2. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Use Memento Black Ink to stamp the “track” to make a road.
  3. Use Big Shot and Stone Embossing Folder from the Power of Hope Bundle to add a design.  Before running this layer through the Big Shot, wipe Smoky Slate Classic Ink over the inside front (the side with Stampin’ Up! logo on it).  This will add some colour to the embossed layer.
  4. Use Memento Black Ink to stamp the ATV on Whisper White Cardstock.  With a pencil, trace the shape of the ATV – cut out with Paper Snips.
  5. Use Stampin’ Markers or Stampin’ Blends to colour the ATV in your favourite colours!  Use Stamping Dimentionals to attach to the front of the card.
  6. Use the smallest die from Stitched So Sweetly Dies and the Big Shot to cut out a piece of Pretty Peacock Cardstock.
  7. Use Pretty Peacock Classic Ink to stamp the greeting on Whisper White Cardstock.  With a pencil, trace the shape of the greeting – cut out with Paper Snips.
  8. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach to the Pretty Peacock layer.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the completed greeting to the card.

Here’s a look at another card using Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends to colour the ATV.

Happy 80th Birthday

Happy 80th Birthday

We were recently invited to a surprise 80th birthday party for a long time friend!  I was so excited because many, many years ago I babysat for this individual and her hubby so to be able to honor her on her special day was super special for me!!

The gathering of family and friends was organized by her 3 children and she was totally surprised.  She thought she was “going out for coffee” with her grandson – it was actually her 80th birthday that very day so I’m surprised that she didn’t suspect anything!

Many people don’t get to reach a milestone like this so I felt it was an honor to be able to make this special card for her.  Yes, I’ve used some retired products (large number framelits) but I felt they were really needed for this once in a lifetime card!

I LOVE how it turned out – sure hope I can share more with this special lady – like 85, 90, 95 and maybe even 100!!

Rooted In Nature Sympathy Wishes

Rooted In Nature Sympathy Wishes

The Rooted In Nature stamp set can be used for many different cards so I chose it for this sympathy card.  The greeting really does sum up the feelings I have when I hear of a death so it was very appropriate for my card.  The dies that coordinate with this set are easy to use with the Big Shot.  Coordinating Baker’s Twine that ties the card base and the first layer together completes this special card for a loved one.
