The precious Occasions & Sale-a-Bration catalogs are on the way to my customers! As my gift to any of my customers who have ordered from me in the past year, I have paid for these catalogs to be delivered to you via the US Mail. Now we know this is a busy season for mail – so watch for them closely and tuck them away in a safe place. The Occasions and the Sale-a-Bration catalogs will start on January 3. Once you get a peak of the inside, you are going to have a long wish list by January 3. In fact, you may want to ask Santa for a Stampin’ Up! gift certificate for Christmas!
Have you ever struggled with masculine cards? Stampin’ Up! has heard our need and has given us the Classic Garage product suite. This product suite is going to solve your masculine card challenge and will have you in gear for Father’s Day and beyond. What I found I loved in working with this product suite was that the images and patterns were versatile. The greetings are unique and perfectly suited for the guys in our lives. This is the product suite I presented on at Stampin’ Up!’s convention (called OnStage) in early November. Today I am going to share the samples I created with you!
Geared Up Garage Sample #1
This card is a perfect simple care (#simplestamping) and really showcases the Classic Garage designer series paper. This is a 6″ x 6″ paper stack that includes 4 each of 12 double-sided designs. You are going to LOVE this paper for your masculine cards!
Geared Up Garage Sample #2
Check out this card that showcases 2 additional items in the Classic Garage product suite. The Black/Silver ribbon (I called it the black ribbon with the silver racing stripe).
And here is one of the dies from the Garage Gears Thinlits that is coupled with a greeting from the Geared Up Garage stamp set.
And this one showcases my favorite Garage Gear Thinlit die. And just check out that Classic Garage Metal Element!
If you look closely at the Garage Gear thinlit, enjoy the detail of these thinlits. And if you saw my presentation you would know that I further enhanced the detail on the thinlit by adding ink to the thinlit before I die cut it.
Geared Up Garage Sample #4
For this card, I cut the motorcycle out of the Classic Garage designer series paper. What a perfect card for our biker dudes! And it could be a Valentine as the greeting is “You jump start my heart”.
Geared Up Garage Sample #5
For this card, I added a sentiment from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set and “DAD” die cut from the Large Letters framelits. You can really see the detail added by the placing my favorite Garage Gears thinlit on the ink pad before die cutting.
Geared Up Garage Sample #6
#simplestamping Easy card. Father’s Day and beyond. Once again made perfect by the Classic Garage designer series paper.
Geared Up Garage Sample #7
For this card I used the Tailored Tag punch with the Classic Garage designer series paper. I also used the Big Shot Embossing Mat with the Garage Gears Thinlits. (The Big Shot Embossing Mat is part of the Year End Sale!)
Geared Up Garage Sample #8
Are you beginning to see why the Classic Garage designer series paper stack is the perfect solution for your masculine card needs? I Love this paper! This is another #simplestamping card.
Geared Up Garage Sample #9
I used the Stamparatus on this card to perfectly align the greeting. I am finding that I am using my stamparatus almost all the time!!
Geared Up Garage Sample #10
I used the Classic Garage Metal Elements to make a Congratulations card appropriate for a new house congratulations card.
Geared Up Garage Sample #11
Here’s a cute little pouch perfect for a cookie, gift card or ? Check out the closure.
Super fun – right?
Geared Up Garage Sample #12
The 3 elements on the top of this card are stamped with the Geared Up Garage stamp set and then die cut with the Garage Gears Thinlits dies. A perfect masculine Birthday Card!
Geared Up Garage Sample #13
This card is truly a classic. Just check out the classic car and the Tin Tile embossing folder in Copper foil that has been distressed with Black StazOn ink. You will find that the car thinlit in the Garage Gears thinlits will die cut some of the cars in the Classic Garage designer series paper.
Geared Up Garage Sample #14
A Classic car for a classic guy in my life. And you’ll see the “dust cloud” stamp in the Geared Up Garage stamp set too!
Geared Up Garage Sample #15
And the last project is this stunning “Dad” banner. I thought a lot about my dad in making this. As some of you know, we are living part time with my dad to help care for his place. Last summer, my dad and I remodeled the kitchen together. In actuality, we built a lot of memories.
I used the Thoughtful Banners stamp set again for some of the greetings. Anyone who still has their dad would appreciate making this banner!
