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.

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.

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.

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.
