Hi to you today.  I'm using the Dashing Deer stamp set and the Detailed Deer dies for my project today.  Both are in the Annual catalog.  I've added in a couple more sets, too.

Dashing Deer by Jo Anne Hewins

This is a Christmas card, but could easily be change with the sentiment.  It would make a great masculine birthday card, wouldn't it!

Start with a card base of Soft Suede that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

There are lots of layers to this card.  The Mossy Meadow layer is 4 x 5 1/4.  Next is a layer of Crumb Cake.  This one measures 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  Run this through your cutting machine with the Pinewood Plank Embossing Folder.

The next layer is Mossy Meadow again.  This is cut with the Rectangle Stitched Dies.  I used the 4th one from the outside.  

Now cut a layer of Whisper White with the 5th rectangle.  The Whisper White layer is stamped with the evergreen trees from the Waterfront stamp set.  Stamp in Mossy Meadow ink.  Some are stamped off.

Add the white layer to the mossy meadow one.  Run some of the Linen Thread around these layers twice.  I tape the ends of the thread to the back of the card with regular tape.  Add these layers with dimensionals to the card.

Using my Stamparatus, stamp the two deer in Soft Suede on Whisper White.  I used the Stamparatus so that I would be able to stamp more than one time.   I want the deer to be dark and solid.  Cut these out with the Detailed Deer dies.  Glue these to the card.  Be careful.  Part of the deer hang off of the white layer.

Tie a bow of Linen Thread and add it to the card with a rolled up glue dot.

Stamp the work Blessed in Cherry Cobbler on Whisper White.  This word comes from the To a Wild Rose stamp set.  Fussy cut around the word and glue this on the card front.

Dashing Deer Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of the card.  The saying, in Cherry Cobbler, is from the Winter Woods stamp set.  Stamp a deer in the corner.  Again, I think I would use the Stamparatus for that.

Love That Classic Garage Suite!

I hate to say it, but it's sometimes hard to find good masculine stamps and accessories.  The Classic Garage Suite has it all.  Here's my card showing a few items in the suite.

Geared Up Garage Suite by Jo Anne Hewins

This card is for a dad, but you could of course change the sentiment if you wish.  The Geared Up Garage stamp set along with the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies make a great bundle.  But there is more.  Stay tuned!

Start with a Thick Whisper White base that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score this at 4 1/4 and fold.  The Basic Black layer is 3 3/4 x 5.

The next layer is Tranquil Tide cut to 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  Stamp over this layer with the car stamp and the smudge stamp.  Stamp off.  Do this in Basic Gray.  Add a strip of the Classic Garage 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper that is 1 x 4 7/8.  You just have to see all the great designs in this paper!  Add a length of the Black/Silver 1/4" Striped Metallic Ribbon across the patterned paper.  You will need a couple more pieces of ribbon that are about 2 1/2 inches long to make an X behind the sentiment.

Stamp the Best Dad on Whisper White in Tranquil Tide.  Cut this out with the thinlit that has the wings on the side.  Cut all of that out again with the same die on Basic Gray.  Put the Tranquil Tide sign inside the gray outside and tape together on the back.  Add with dimensionals.

One of the best parts of the Garage Gears Thinlits is the gears.  Cut them out in Basic Black and add to the outside of the card.  More will go on the inside.  Use Solid Black Baker's Twine to tie on the key.  I do have a glue dot behind the key to hole it in place.  The Classic Garage Metal Elements have keys and wrenches.

For the inside of the card, the gears and a saying are all you need.  It's all from this suite!

All Geared Up to Celebrate!

The Geared Up Garage bundle found on page 43 of the Occasions catalog is perfect for making some masculine cards.  The whole Suite is wonderful.  The Garage Gears Thinlits Dies are so easy to use and add so much to a card without a lot of effort.  The Black/Silver Striped Metallic Ribbon is just wow!  The Classic Garage 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper has such yummy colors.  I've used all of this on my card for today and a little bit more.  Here's my card for today.

Geared Up Garage card 1 by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Real Red and measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

The Tranquil Tide layer is 4 x 5 1/4.  Stamp over this layer with the smudgy looking stamp in Tranquil Tide.  Stamp off.  Now use the large gears thinlit to emboss this background in the upper left corner.  Use the Big Shot Embossing Mats on page 221 of the Annual catalog.  The directions are right on the package along with pictures for the correct sandwich to use.  I love how this turned out.  Stamp the three bolts here and there without stamping off.  Are those nuts or bolts?  Well, whichever.

The map paper strip is 3/4 x 4.  It's part of the Classic Garage 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  Add some gears cut from Real Red card stock just above the paper strip.  

Stamp the tool box in Tuxedo Memento Black on Smoky Slate card stock.  Cut this out with the matching thinlit.  Add the tool box with dimensionals.

Cut additional tools from the designer paper and glue them to the card.

Stamp the sentiment from Geared Up Garage in Memento Black and cut around it.  Add two strips of the Black/Silver Metallic Ribbon in a X.  Add the sentiment on top.

Geared Up Garage and a Man Card

Kylie's Demo Blog Hop

Welcome to Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop.  This is my first participating and I'm so excited to join you!  I have chosen to use the Geared Up Garage bundle for my card today.  Here's my card.

Geared Up Garage  SAB by Jo Anne Hewins

The Geared Up Garage bundle is great for the men in your life or the mechanical minded, car loving women, too.  It was one of the first bundles that I ordered.

The card base is Basic Black card stock measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Real Red and is cut at 3 3/4 x 5.  

The black diagonal paper is part of the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper that is part of the Sale-a-Bration offerings this year.  It measures 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.

The little rectangles of paper are from the Classic Garage 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  This pack has 4 each of 12 double sided designs.  Cut the strips 1 1/4 x 3.  I usually add the two end pieces and then center the middle one. 

The gears are cut out from Basic Black card stock using the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies.  I used a piece of black cut at 3 x 5 1/2.  There is a large group of gears, three gears, and a lot of single gears.  Just put them all on the paper and cut them out at one time.  Run back and forth on the Big Shot several times and use the Big Shot Die Brush if needed.  I used glue to adhere.  If you want, this would be a great way to use the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to turn your gears into stickers.  I did put a couple on a dimensional.  Just place the gears where you want them.  Leave a few for the inside.

One of the pieces of designer paper has pics of different cards.  Pick one and cut it out.  Add with dimentionals.  My car is facing the left so I put it on the right.  Switch it up if your car is facing the right.  There is some of the patterned paper with motorcycles.  These can be easily interchanged.  Let me add that there is a framelit for a car that fits one of the cars on the paper as well as the car stamp.

The saying is from the Geared Up Garage stamp set.  Stamp Best Dad in Real Red on Whisper White.  Make sure there is room to the sides of the image.  There is a thinlit for this.  It does cut out the center, but I taped it back together on the back.  Add with dimensionals.  There are other sayings that work if you don't need a Dad card.  If you switched sides for the car, switch sides for the saying!

Here is how I finished the inside of the card.
