Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | All Geared Up
I have a fun masculine card to share with you today made using the Geared Up Garage stamp set and coordinating Garage Gears Dies. These products debuted in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue and I was so pleased to see them carryover to the *new* 2019-20 Annual Catalogue.
I’m playing along with this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge (CTS#325) for my layout, this is a fun sketch that you can do so much with, make sure you hop over to check out all the great ideas everyone else has come up with.
I die cut a Grey Granite rectangle and stamped two of the images from Geared Up Garage in Grey Granite ink to create a subtle background. It was looking a bit bleh, so I decided to try crumpling it and adding a little more ink with a sponge dauber to some of the wrinkles and around the edges. I really liked the grungy look this gave me and thought it was a great contrast to the shiny, silver gears.
I decided to use Basic Black for my card base and embossed a layer the same size as my card front with a brick embossing folder (retired) to add even more texture. I adhered my background to this and added the gear die with stacks of tiny slivers of cut up dimensionals – fiddly, but worth it 🙂
I added the same Grey Granite layer inside with a little stamping in just one corner. I decided not to crumple this one as it might be a little difficult to write on and this finished off my simple card.
Geared Up Garage is a recent addition to my stash and this was my first play with this fun set. I love all the gear dies in the coordinating Garage Gears die set, they can be used for much more that just car cards and would work perfectly with lots of other mechanical/ industrial stamp sets you may have in your stash.
