Every 6 weeks or so, I design a project for Card & Cuppa that is more suited to men. For this one, I reached for the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set.
Normally for male cards, there is a lot of blues, greens and Crumb Cake used. I opted for a slightly brighter palette. This combination of Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso make a nice change.
Oil splats from the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set are randomly stamped across the page which. The nuts are then stamped in Early Espresso.
Cogs from the co-ordinating Garage Gears Dies are cut out from a piece of Sahara Sand Cardstock and are coloured using Sponge Daubers. A mix of Sahara Sand, Soft Suede and Cajun Craze make a nice rusty look.
There is a touch of Wink of Stella randomly applied across the cogs too.
Sponge Daubers have also been used to colour the edges of the project.
A dark Soft Suede Stampin’ Blend Marker is used to colour some Whisper White Baker’s Twine that wraps around the project.
Finally, a sentiment cut using the Timeless Label Punch is added.
There are only a few weeks of Card & Cuppa left for this year. Book your place by 18:00 the day before if you’d like to join us.
