Stampin' Up! Clean & Simple Geared Up Garage Card by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. This is followed by a layer of Whisper White cardstock measuring 10 x 14.4 cm which forms the main card front.

I have sponged So Saffron ink on the corner of the card front to help ground the images and to bring in the challenge colour.

The tool box and oil can images from the Stampin’ Up! Geared Up Garage Stamp Set are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock. The images are coloured using the Night of Navy and Real Red Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers and cut out using the coordinating Garage Gears Dies. These die cuts are adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock. It is cut out using one of the Tasteful Labels Dies. I trimmed the edge of the die cut and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Clean & Simple Sketch Challenge

Hello and welcome! Today I’d like to share a card I created for a Clean & Simple Sketch Challenge. You can find out more about these challenges here – you can view the other entries or take part yourself. The sketch for the challenge is shown below.

I decided on a simple colour scheme of Very Vanilla and Petal Pink, and used a combination of different products.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Very Vanilla Thick cardstock and this is followed by a slightly smaller layer of Very Vanilla cardstock. Instead of using two different patterned papers or colours of cardstock to split the background, as indicated in the sketch, I decided to use a die cut. I used one of the Ornate Borders Dies to cut out a piece of Petal Pink cardstock and adhered this to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the angled panel I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and cut one piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and one piece of the Petal Pink DSP, layered them together and adhered them to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To decorate the panel, I cut the three single flowers from the Ornate Borders Dies, layered them together and added a Petal Pink Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequin.

The final touch was the sentiment, from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set, which is stamped directly onto the card front in Petal Pink ink.

I hope the like my project! If you have any questions or comments please leave them below or email me at helen@papercraftlife.com

Honey Bee Card

Hello and welcome! Today I wanted to share with you a card I made for the latest CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge. The sketch for the challenge is shown below:

I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Stamp set and this is my project…

(If you would prefer to watch me making the card, scroll to the end of this blog post to watch my YouTube video)

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. I have followed this with a slightly smaller layer of Basic Black cardstock and an even smaller layer of Whisper White cardstock.

The honey comb is cut from Basic Black cardstock using the Stampin’ Up! Detailed Bee Dies which coordinate with the Honey Bee Stamp Set. This is adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The large bee image is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Daffodil Delight cardstock and cut out using the 2.25″ Circle Punch.

The sentiment is stamped onto Whisper White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and trimmed into a rectangle. This sentiment piece is adhered to the Daffodil Delight circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the whole piece then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by a few Gold Metallic Pearls.
