A Geared Up Garage CASE of the Catalog Page 65

The Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge has been CASEing the catalog for the last few weeks.  This week we are casing page 65.

CCMC621 p 65

My card has a totally different vibe to it, but it does essentially follow the layout.

CCMC #621 Geared Up Garage Card by Jo Anne Hewins

It's a man card today.  I don't do those very often, and I haven't used Geared Up Garage in a long time.  It was calling my name!

The base is Early Espresso 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

Next is a layer of the patterned paper from the World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I used the Crumb Cake colored piece with the scribbling on it.  Cut at 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  Load up the You're a Classic saying on the Stamparatus so that it would be in the center of this paper.  Hinge stamp the saying in Early Espresso ink.  To hinge stamp, make sure that the saying is mounted between the two top hinges of the Stamparatus.  Stamp, lift up the plate and pull out, move down a hinge and place the plate there.  Continue with this until you have stamped to the bottom of the page.

Mount this sheet in the middle of the base.

Cut a frame for the card using the Stitched Rectangles dies.  Cut the largest die, skip one, and then the next.  These can both be cut at the same time.  Center the smaller die as best you can.  Add the frame with Foam Adhesive Strips.

Add the Faux Suede Trim to the center of the card in a zigzag.  Stamp the saying from Geared Up Garage in Early Espresso on a Whisper White scrap.  Cut this out using the Tasteful Labels dies.  Add on dimensionals.

Cut out some of the gears in Gold Foil and add to the card with glue dots.  Use the Garage Gears dies.

CCMC #621 Geared Up Garage Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside of the card add the classic saying again and some more gears!  It's that simple.

Thanks for your time today.  I'm so glad you came to visit.  If you need any supplies be sure to check the list below.  It goes right to my online store.  I appreciate that!

It's a Beautiful World

Have you noticed the World of Good Suite on pages 24-26 of the Stampin' Up! 2020-2021 Annual Catalog?  It makes great masculine cards, adventure cards, and travel memories.

World of Good Suite

You just might want to check it out.  Today I have a card using the Beautiful World stamp set, the World Map dies, the Old World Paper embossing folder, and the World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I'm using a sketch from the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #616.

CCMC616

Here is the card that I made using this fantastic suite.

CCMC #616 Beautiful World by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Early Espresso and is cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Run the front of the card through a die cut and emboss machine with the Old World Paper embossing folder.  It's just so pretty!

Add a piece of the World of Good Specialty paper cut to 3 x 4 1/4.  I love the map!  I sponged around the edges of this paper with Early Espresso ink.  

The next layer looks like an old weathered document of some sort.  Cut the paper at 2 x 4 and sponge around it as well.  Place it leaning over toward the right. 

The Bumblebee strip is from this same paper pack. It is 3/4 x 3 1/4.

The world is stamped in Early Espresso on Misty Moonlight card stock.  Cut it out with the World May dies.  Cut the globe stand from Gold Foil.  Glue to the globe and add it with dimensionals.

CCMC #616 Beautiful World Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

The saying is stamped in Early Espresso.  Cut out with the Stitched Shapes dies.  Add with dimensionals.  

Add a few Misty Moonlight dots from the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots.  Now there has been some issues with the enamel dots coming apart.  I think they are not orderable at this time while the situation is fixed.

CCMC #616 Beautiful World Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here's the inside of the card.  It's all stamped in Early Espresso and is part of the Beautiful World stamp set.

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for May 2020.  This month we are celebrating men.  I'm so glad you are here.  Be sure to visit all of the blogs on this hop.  You know, Father's Day will be here soon.  You'll get lots of ideas today!

I'm using the Country Club Designer Series Paper from the January-June Mini catalog.  This paper is on the Last Chance List.  It's going away soon!  Here is my card.

OSAT Country Club Birthday Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Garden Green card stock cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

The next layer is Whisper White measures 4 x 5 1/4.  

The green plaid paper from the Country Club Designer Series Paper is 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  I did some hinge stamping for the left side of the card using my Stamparatus.  The stamp set is Perennial Birthday.  This stamp set is also retiring.  I just love the bold happy birthday used here.  I will miss it since it is so perfect for masculine cards.  The Stamparatus allows you to go back and stamp again and again if needed to make the words dark.

OSAT Country Club Birthday Card Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Use the Stitched Nested Labels dies to cut the banner in Garden Green.  Cut another smaller banner from the designer paper and glue onto the larger one.

The saying is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  It's actually parts of two of the sayings in the stamp set.  Stamp in Memento Black on Whisper White scraps and then cut the words apart.  Glue to the banner.  I added the banner to the card front first with dimensionals so I would get the words on there straight.

The twine accent is made from the Country Club Twine Combo Pack, also on the Last Chance Product list.  I used the green and the black.  Pull the threads apart and then lay them back together.  Since this twine is a little thicker, I think this helps the thread lay a little flatter.   Tie the twine into knots about every 1 1/2 inches.  Add with glue dots behind the knots.

For my 3D project I'm using the Mini Pizza Box.

OSAT Country Club Mini Pizza Box Top View by Jo Anne Hewins

The top of the box is covered by a 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 piece of the green plaid.  Make the green banner with the smaller plaid banner just as you did for the card.  Stamp the Happy Birthday from the Perennial Birthday stamp set on Whisper White.  Cut this out with the next smallest banner from the Stitched Nested Labels.  The green banners go from corner to corner.  The white label goes across.

Make the knots for each end of the green banner.  Pull apart strands from the twine again and tie in a knot.  Trim to size.  Add with a glue dot.

OSAT Country Club Mini Pizza Box Project by Jo Anne Hewins

The sides of the box are covered with designer paper strips that measure 7/8 x 3 1/4.  Add some of the knotted twine around the box.

OSAT Country Club Card and Mini Pizza Box by Jo Anne Hewins

Here are the two together.  Later I'll fill this box with some Butterfinger nuggets for my husband.  That's his favorite!

I hope you will continue on the hop.  I can't wait to see what everyone has this month!

I do have another post today for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  My card there coordinates with these projects.  Go here to check it out.
