I thought it was about time for a masculine card…
but then my sister-in-law would love this buck come November!
Did you notice the custom sizes of the Stitched Rectangle Dies? In the past, I have made some of my dies sand punches cut in different sizes by just lining up the cutting edge of the dies on an already cut piece of cardstock. But, this was the first time I did it with my Stitched Rectangles…oh my gosh…it was so easy because the stitches on the die fall right into the already cut stitches! So there you have it…those Stitched Rectangles have just grown even more versatile!!!

It’s done…my Wednesday Video on Friday!
I played around with the NEW Stampin’ UP Geared Up Garage Bundle coming out on January 3, 2019. Such a cool stamp set with coordinating framelits! So cool that the gentleman sitting next to me on the plane commented how cool the ’69 Mustang was and how it brought back memories for him while I was putting it together!
I used the Classic Garage 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. Let me tell you- it is AWESOME! One of the best DSPs I have seen!
You can easily adhere a gift card on the front opening part on the card, too.
I colored my toolbox with my Stampin’ Blends. I left the card “generic” until I add the occasion to it.

Look what I found yesterday as I was searching around my blog…an UNPULISHED VIDEO!
Oh gosh, I forgot to post it before the Truly Tailored Bundle was retired…
but I know a lot of you have it so I am posting it now:)
Remember a design element on a card can be used with any stamp set, paper, or embellishment you have on hand! At the end of the video, I show you a great little tip to make a neat and tidy bow that I know you will love!
These were the leftover triangles from my Criss Cross Card.
An A2 size card using a cardstock base of 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ on the 8-1/2″ side
Mount the two triangles (made from cutting a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of DSP in half diagonally) on a piece of 4″ x 5-1/4″ cardstock.
Adhere the diagonal bands down the middle BEFORE adhering the triangle panel to the card base so you can trim off the strips at the corners.
I am so excited to show you this card today using
the SU Apron of Love and Bottles and Bubbles Bundles.
It just makes me happy! I used the sentiments from SU Guy Greetings.
I saw this card done by Handmade by Irene with a grill so I got pinspired to make my own!
I tried e-ver-y-thing possible to make that bottom part of the grill that keeps the tripod together. Everything looked goofy- the small oval punch, small circles, small ovals…it was just driving me crazy! In the end, the right piece was right in front of my nose! I just die cut the rolling pin, cut it, and pushed it together!
I used the 1-1/2″ circle punch to make the upper part of the grill.
I just keep thinking it looks like Pac Man…lol.
I did the inside two different ways…
The grass die comes from the Picnic Basket Builder Framelits,
it’s a great way to finish of the inside of the card, don’t you think?
