Stampin' Up! Nailed It Father's Day Card

I wanted to share with you another lovely card that I have just made. I loved using the Nailed It Stamp Set for my class last week so I decided to use it again for my Daddy and his Father's Day card. My dad is always in his garage doing something or other and is such a great DIY person that this set was perfect, I think all dads lovely their garages if not to just get away from their kids:) and the wife!!!

I started by getting a piece of the lovely Cucumber Crush Card Stock and cutting it at 10.5cm down the middle. I then folded it in half and scored at 14.9cm I used some of the super cute Urban Underground DSP at the top and I then stamped using Memento Ink, the hammer, Screwdriver and Saw and coloured them in using my Watercolour Pencils and Blender Pen. I love the Watercolour pencils they are so easy to use and I love the result.

Nailed It

I then fussy cut out the tools which is easy to do and stuck them on the card using some dimensionals.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set but I will share a secret I just used the Stampin' Write Maker in Cucumber Crush and just coloured the words in, as i didn't want the lines either side of the words. (if you see the stamp set you will see what I mean, hopefully :)) The punch I used is a little sneak peak of a brand new punch called  Pretty Label Punch and it's available from the 1st June.
The other little sentiment is from the stamp set also and I used the Banner Triple Punch to cut that out.

I loved the way it turned out and it really didn't take long to do. 

If you like the stamp set why not get one for yourself and make some super men's cards to. You can click on the Picture above and It will take you to my online shop or you can click on the highlighted purple items and this will also take you to my website. All supplies can be purchase through my online shop and if you use my online Hostess Code  ZKZAEPYF I send out a handmade card and Stampin' Up! Free Gift.

Stampin' Up! Nailed It Men's Cards by Tracy Abrahams

I just wanted to share with you a fab class i held on Wednesday night using the super cool Nailed It Stamp set by Stampin' Up! This is my new favourite stamp set, well for this week anyway, it makes the cuties men's tools and when you colour them in they come alive.  As you can see below we made 3 cards all using the stamp set.  

Nailed It Stamp Set
The cards were made to show off how versatile the stamp set is and that you can not only make a fab background like in the spanner card which we heat embossed but with just a little bit of the matching dsp from the Urban Underground suite you can make a Fathers Day card in minutes.

The card below with the tools was coloured in using the Watercolour pencils which all the ladies enjoyed doing. Colouring is such a therapeutic thing after a hard day and you can just feel the tension melting away,

This one was made by one of the ladies and she decided she just wanted to colour it in using the basic grey watercolour pencil and some of the Wink of Stellar Clear to make it a little sparkly,


and here's all the ladies enjoying the evening. It was such a fun night and everyone went home with 3 men's cards.

I love sharing my passion for Stampin' Up! as there stamp sets, framelits and inks always give a great result.

Last weekend I attended a Stampin' Up! event in Amsterdam. As a demonstrator I get the chance to gather with lots of other demonstrators and learn all about the new products Stampin' Up! have to offer in their upcoming catalogue. We make swaps and everyone swaps and receives lots of lovely card fronts or 3d projects. These were my swaps

Dragonfly Dreams

I made them with the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp set and Watermelon Wonder Card Stock and Ink and Tip Top Taupe Card Stock and Ink. These are both retiring in a couple of weeks to make way for some lovely new in-colours so if you love them like me grab some while you can.   The cards were really easy to make and only took me a couple of hours which was good considering I had to make 75!!!! They went together very quickly and I loved the sentiments that was in the stamp set as it was perfect the occasion.

I made a background on the Blushing Bride card stock with one of the stamps from the set and then used the single baby and umbrella image on some Whisper White card stock and mounted that on the card base.  I made the little star and the teeny tiny little buttons on the baby grow using my Free Glimmer Paper.

Ohhh and have you spotted the super cute baby sentiment it's from the Milestone Moments Stamp set !!!!

Stampin' Up! - Window Shopping Birthday Cards

You know I love a nice stamp set and Stampin' Up! do such lovely ones. The Window Shopping Bundle 144743 is one I've been playing with this week and it's so so lovely. I had a super card making class on Tuesday and we made 2 cards and a gift box so the stamp set and thinlits dies were sitting waiting on my desk to be played with again.

Window Shopping Bundle (stamp set and thinlits dies) 


I made these super cards using the little die cuts that come along with Window Shopping Thinlits Dies gift box 144743, they are for embellishing the sides of the gift box but as you can see they make super cards on there own. There are 9 dies total and I used the heart, little spots and the candle to make these cards.

Window Box Thinlits Die Bundle 

The first card I made using the little die with the hearts on and I made it into a shaker cards which means I placed some window sheet 142314 behind the die cut section. I then place my super cute sprinkles Embellishments 142741 on the card and just placed the little cut out section with the hearts on, on top you have to use some of our foam adhesive strips 141825 to raise it  up and then the sprinkles can move about underneath.

Window Shopping Bundle

The next card I made using the die was with the little spotty holes in it and I did the same thing and made that also into a shaker card, this time i put some sequins behind the window.


The last card I made also used the little heart die but this time i made it into a thinking of you card, all the sentiments come from the great Window Shopping stamp set 142920. I especially love the happy birthday sentiment as it has a retro feel to it and it makes the colour on the sentiment seem graduated so the card looks super cute as you can see above.

Window Shopping Bundle

I love this card so quick and easy and it looks so cool.

You can click on any of the pictures to visit my online shopping website.  I would love you to take a look and see how great this set is, we have had so much fun using it this week and I'm sure I will find lots of other uses for the dies in this set.

My hostess code is  NJXAGANT this month and when you use it I send out a great Stampin' Up! Free gift as an extra for using my online site and a hand made card.

There is still time to also grab a Sale-a-bration item with 15 to choose from (catalogue to choose the items from is on the side of this page and its clickable) also the annual and seasonal catalogues are available to look at.

If you want a super offer then why not think about joining Stampin' Up! as a demonstrator under myself and get your own super Starter Kit for just £99 and this gives you £130 worth of products and during Sale-a-bration 2 Free stamp sets worth up to £93.
