Stampin' Up! Geared Up Garage for Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop



It's Thursday again BUT it's the last one for 2018! Can you believe it? I, for one, am glad to kiss 2018 goodbye and begin anew. I always look forward to January 1 because it gives me another chance to work on the resolutions I've been making forever! I resolve this year to keep the craft room neat and orderly...ha! and perhaps to become more than a "hobbyist" demonstrator. 

Thanks for stopping by. Our team has a color challenge today and they are three of my favorites. Take a look see...

My layout comes from the sketch at Atlantic Hearts Challenge

et voila....


My card base is Very Vanilla. I stamped my Gray Granite mat in the matching ink with the car stamp and gas can from Geared Up Garage. This stamp set will be available in the upcoming Occasions catalog, along with its matching dies.

I cut mats of Blackberry Bliss, Pear Pizzazz, Gray Granite and adhered them together with liquid glue. On a piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss (second generation). Using the Garage Gears Thinlits dies, I adhered two gears with glue dots.

For the inside...
I cut mats in Pear Pizzazz, Blackberry Bliss and Gray Granite. I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss full strength. I stamped the car using Gray Granite ink on a piece of Pear Pizzazz and used a die to cut it out. I used another die in the set to cut out the three gears (which is one die).

I hope you have enjoyed my card today. There are more beauties to look at by clicking on the "next" button to hop to the ever-so-creative Julie Johnston and/or click on each name listed below for our other talented team mates. Happy hopping!
