Ink, Stamp Share Blog Hop March 2019

Happy Saturday everyone!  It's going to be a great weekend here in Tucson as the United States Air Force Thunderbirds will be at our airshow at the Air Force base I work at.  Looking forward to going but first it's time for another Ink, Stamp, Share Blog Hop!

This month's theme is all about masculine cards.  Creating masculine cards can be difficult for some as a lot of our stamps show flowers and frilly things.  For me, they can be difficult because my color pallet tends to gravitate for the bright and bold colors.  My project this month focuses on the Geared Up Garage bundle from the Occasions catalog.


My project is a CASE of a design I saw on Pinterest from Mary Fish.  I loved the overall layout of the card but I wanted to change some things up and make it my own.  I started with the using Basic Black cardstock and layered with the 6" x 6" Classic Garage Designer Series Paper using Smoky Slate cardstock on top.  


I stamped the car on Daffodil Delight cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and used the coordinating car die to cut it out.  The Stitched Shape Framelits oval in the back is the perfect way to combine different shapes together.  I used the Dark Basic Black Stampin' Blend and colored the Basic Rhinestones to make them a different color!

For my project this month, I wanted to use the Pizza Boxes as my box and make some very simple 3"x 3" cards.  On the pizza box, I used So Saffron card stock layered with Petal Pink and Whisper White.  Using the Painted Harvest stamp set, I inked using Soft Sea Foam and Pear Pizzaz and layered the two colors together.  For some small flowers on the wreath, I stamped with Calypso Coral.


For the cards I used Whisper White cardstock cut to 6" x 3" and scored at the 3 inches mark.  I stamped the image using the Love What You Do stamp set and used So Saffron, Petal Pink, and Pear Pizzaz as the background and Tuxedo Black Memento ink for the sentiment.

The ribbon is a simple technique I love to do!  I colored the Silver Edged Metallic ribbon using my Dark Petal Pink Stampin' Blend marker and it gives it a whole new look!

This month's theme is all about birthday's and I wanted to use one last Sale-A-Bration product to create my card!  I love the Home to Roost stamp set and knew right away I wanted to use this set!

I started with a Whisper White cardstock base and layered with Poppy Parade.  Using the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper, I layered using two different designs from the package of paper, which is also a free item you can earn during Sale-A-Bration!
I stamped the rooster in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored him in with Dark Cajun Craze, Light Bermuda Bay, Light Cherry Cobbler, Dark Soft Suede, Light Daffodil Delight, and Light Basic Black.  I used the masking technique to stamp the weeds in the background using Old Olive ink.  Using the All That You Are stamp set, I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment to finish it off!
