Geared Up Garage Father’s Day Cards

It’s Father’s Day here in the UK tomorrow, and I decided to use Geared Up Garage for my cards. It’s a great set, but for me, the dies are the star of the show. Who knew engine parts could be so stunning?!

You can get as creative as you like with these dies, but for these cards I kept things simple and let the dies and the champagne foil do all the work. I went with a mango melody and blueberry bushel colourway, and I love the masculine vibe in a more playful colour palette.

Hope the men in my family love their cards and enjoy our celebratory family brunch tomorrow, and wishing all dads out there a very Happy Father’s Day!! xx

Gallery Grunge with a Lemon Lime Twist

I love so many of the new products in the Annual Catalogue, it’s hard to pick a favourite, but Gallery Grunge and the Stitched All Around Bundle are Up there! You can make beautiful cards so quickly just using these sets, and I love how easy it is to create your own homemade DSP with Gallery Grunge as I have done here.

Grey is my favourite neutral colour and I’m a big fan of the new gray granite colour. It’s much warmer than smoky slate or basic grey, with almost a taupey undertone – it’s great having another option!

Love how this card turned out and it was so quick and easy to put together.

All The Good Things

So the minute I spotted All Good Things in the catalogue, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it! It is part of a new range of distinktive stamp sets by Stampin’ Up! which stamp the most beautifully detailed images with shades of light and dark within it. The depth and dimension really comes across in the koi fish in this card, and all with one single stamp!

My fish were stamped in gorgeous grape, lovely lipstick and coastal cabana. The background spots were stamped using Gallery Grunge which is already forming a special place in my heart 😍 – If you were a fan of the Retired Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set, you will love this one. This was a get well card for my aunt, so I took the sentiment from Dandelion Wishes.

The background colours I used were gorgeous grape, petal pink and soft sea foam. I coloured my own ribbon by taking some white ribbon I already had in my stash and inking it up in coastal cabana ink. This is such a great way to make the most of your supplies. It also means you don’t have to invest lots of money in ribbons (unless you want to of course 😉) and you will always have a coordinating ribbon to hand in a flash. A few sparkly sequins finished my card off perfectly.

Such a simple card to make, and these distinktive stamps do all the work for you xx
