Trusty Tools & more

Father’s Day is right around the corner so today I thought I’d share some wonderful cards to celebrate those Dads in our lives. The Trusty Tools Stamp Set (163274) includes great all occasions sentiments along with

sentiments for Dad in addition it has a set of Trusty Tools Dies (162722) that coordinates and gives you even more options.

This first card made with the set uses the die to create a pegboard background and is done in Real Red, Blueberry Bushel and Gray Granite. The word Dad has been stamped and cut out with Paper Snips and Adhesive Backed Sparkle Gems (161288) were added to recreate the pegs they hang from. For a more nature look this next card uses the Country Woods Designer Series Paper (163393)

to create a backdrop for the tools and sentiment. A bit of Baker’s Twine Essential Pack (155475) wrapped around the layered panel adds a bit more color and texture. And for a final card today using this stamp set a simple thank you card.

The brushes are “dipped” into the Classic Ink and then dragged to create the paint look for this cool look. Our Metallics Enamel Effects Basic (161610) were used to create the dots on the metal band for each brush and the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder (160766) adds a bit of industrial feel to the background.

How about turning our eyes to the sky with this next card? The Take to the Sky Suite Collection (163832) includes everything you need to create wonderful projects with it’s shades of blue. The Adventurous Sky Bundle (163447) makes me think of my step father who took flying lessons when I was in high school. I was so proud of him when he was able to fly solo!

This card is a fun fold called a Criss Cross Card and have a fun way it opens. The little flap that is created with the fold

can be used to hold a sentiment or even a gift card

Do you love simple stamping and an easy technique? This next card using the Beside Me stamp set (160780) has been stamped on Very Vanilla Card Stock using Crumb Cake Classic Ink.

The background has been dry embossed with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder (160766) and Early Espresso Classic Ink has been sponged across the texture to highlight it.

My final card today uses the Gone Fishing stamp set (161535) and coordinating Gone Fishing Dies (161541) and is perfect for those dads who love to fish. A piece of the Country Woods Designer Series Paper (163393) mimics the stamped water in the bottom left section of the “tackle box”.

Trusty Tools & Sale-a-bration’s Trusty Toolbox Designer Series Paper

Woohoo! Coordination at it’s finest along with a great tool Bundle for the guys in our lives. Who doesn’t love that? Today’s cards not only the Trusty Tools Bundle (162723) but

they use one of our FREE Sale-a-bration products the Trusty Toolbox Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration 162978). This paper is filled will wonderful images that our dies will cut out too! That makes it sooo easy to use and cards quick and easy too.

Like I said coordination at it’s finest! Check out these cards using these products. This first few cards use simple stamping and the paper to create the cards. Strips of different patterns were used to create this first card.

Along with our Lost Lagoon 1/4″ Bordered Ribbon (161171) and Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots (159082) making a quick and easy Father’s Day card. And this next card uses a score line to create a fun fold.

The card is a 4 1/4 x 11 inch card base that has been scored on the 5 1/2″ and then on the 10″ marks. The bottom 1 inch section has been folded up and the rich Pecan Pie 1/2″ Bordered Ribbon (161634) holds it in place.

This next simple stamping card uses the Patchwork Pieces Dies (161592) seen below cut your Designer Series Paper for you and adds a fun little stitched edge to them too.

Our little Adhesive Backed Cork Rounds (162643) add a bit of texture to the sentiment. Add the sentiment of your choice inside, like a birthday from the Biggest Wish stamp set (155052) and you’ve got a great masculine birthday card. And how about this next card that teams the products up with the He’s All That stamp set (159071) and the coordinating dies?

This card uses a quick and easy technique using our Stampin’ Write Markers to color the different parts of the sentiment. This technique is a great way to add multiple colors to images, simply use the side of the flair tip to color the sections you desire. Make sure to start with the lightest color first so you don’t mix colors on your marker tip. Then simply breath on the image to reactivate the ink and stamp. Yep, it really is that easy! This card is also a gift card holder making it a great way to give a gift too.

To create a pocket for the gift card simply cut your card base at 11 x 4 1/4 inches and then score at the 5 1/2 and 8 3/4 inch marks. Tear & Tape is a great adhesive for the top and bottom of the pocket to hold things firmly.

And for the final card today, that fun little die found in the Trusty Tools Dies (162722) that creates a little peg board for your projects.

The images from the Trusty Toolbox Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration 162978) have been die cut for quick color and the bold sentiment has been fussy cut so it could hang on the board.

Whether your guy is a handy man or a tool collector, he’ll be sure to enjoy projects made with these products.
