Righty Tighty – Guy Greetings from Stampin Up

Hello lovelies.

Righty Tighty GUY GREETINGS from Stampin Up – Day 3,

The gorgeous Guy Greetings from Stampin Up has really been a boost to my stamp sets.  I adore all the images and the great male sentiments.  This set has really inspired me to get creative and I hope that you guys are finding my creations inspiring.

As a teenager when I was learning to drive my Dad showed me how to change the wheel on my car.  I remember him telling an easy way to undo the nuts, “Rightly Tighty, Lefty Loosy!!”  It stuck with me for years and works for DIY as well as car maintenance.

Today’s card is the card I created for my Dad because this saying was so apt.

Using the gorgeous Typeset DSP – (Designer Series Paper) I created a gorgeous front to my card.  I sponged the edges of my DSP to a very vintage look to my card.  I loved the polaroid frame that I created for my card on Day 1, so I decided to use it again today.  First I stamped the main image and then on a second piece of cardstock I cut out the middle of the cardstock using the Square Framelits.   I raised the polaroid frame using frailest.  The sentiment was stamped onto a rectangle of cardstock, and then distressed before creating the banner end with my 1″ square punch.  I pleated some chevron ribbon down the front of the card and attached my banner on top of it.

Lastly I made a matching envelope from the same DSP stack.

Guy Greetings from Stampin Up – day 1

Hi everyone,

GUY GREETINGS from Stampin Up created by Crunchie Crafts – Day 1

Apologies for the absence, but family life has not been easy and I needed some time out.  But i’m back with lots of lovely projects to show you and hopefully inspire you with.  Today I am showing you the first of 5 projects that I used the Guy Greetings stamp set from Stampin Up for.    I made these for fathers day, but you can change the greeting for birthday, or for any special occasion for that wonderful man in your life.

To make this I used the lovely new thick Whisper White Cardstock for my card base, cut to 11 3/4″ x 5 3/4″.  Folded in half to create a 5 3/4″ square card.  Then I added some Typeset DSP, which had been ink distressed.

This DSP (Designer Series Paper) is really lovely to use and is slightly lighter in weight than our other DSP, but the designs are really beautiful and very versatile.

I stamped onto whisper white and cut the gorgeous frame using a rectangle of DSP and our square framelits.  Its easy to create this lovely polaroid photo effect in this way.  To create the banner I cut a 1″ strip of cardstock, stamped my sentiment and then using Snips cut the banner end.  I stuck this onto my card using dimensionals.  Everything has been distressed with crumb cake ink, before I added some burlap ribbon and some chevron ribbon, and finally stuck my polaroid style stamped topper.
