Geared Up Garage Valentine
Welcome to this month’s Creative Inking Blog Hop with the theme of “sharing the love”.
The love of my life is my husband Jim. He is my best friend and partner in all that we do. I know a number of you have met him and you are the lucky ones! So, I created a Masculine Valentine. Ever since I started creating with the All Geared Up stamp set for my presentation at Stampin’ Up!’s Onstage event in November, I knew I wanted to do something with the greeting; “You jump-start my heart” for Valentines day.
Enter the Be Mine Stitched Framelits in the Occasions catalog and I knew they were a perfect focal point for my Valentines card. A technique that I shared during my OnStage presentation was to lay the gear framelit on the inkpad before running through your Big Shot. There is a lot of detail in this framelit and by adding a little ink from the inkpad the detail becomes even more pronounced.
Another little trick is with the die cut for this greeting. Do you see the 3 little “flyer type” lines on each side of the die cut? By highlighted those lines with a Black Journaling Pen and drawing in them, it adds just a touch of detail that adds a perfect finishing touch.
Would you like this card?
