Nailed It

Nailed It, Build It, Stampin Up, susanstamps.wordpress.com

I made this card using a new stamp set from the 2017 Occasions Catalog called Nailed It.  It was one of those sets that didn’t catch my eye right away but the more I looked at it, the more I decided I had to have it.  I think what happened is it has a Happy Fathers Day stamp in it and since I don’t have any fathers left I didn’t think I needed it.  The thing is, it makes a great man card.  All the tools and the sentiments are perfect for that.

The other nice thing about this stamp set is it has a set of matching Framelits called Build It.  Ya gotta love any stamp set that has matching Framelits!

Tasty Trucks

Tasty Trucks, Hexagon Dynamic Embossing Folder, Stampin Up, susanstamps.wordpress.com

Tasty Trucks is an adorable stamp set that you can earn for free during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order.   Yes, I said free.  All you need to do is place a minimum $50 order and you can pick this great stamp set (or any other) that is in the Sale-a-braition Catalog.  The set includes 16 Photopolymer stamps.  There are 7 sentiments along with the truck and some food items that a food truck would serve.  It is perfect to use with the new Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils or Stampin’ Markers.  I happen to use the markers on this card.

The background is one of my favorite Embossing Folders.  It is called Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (a mouthful!) .  It is different than a normal embossing folder.  The impressions are deeper so it makes it look almost 3D.  When using one of the Dynamic Folders, you don’t need to use the bottom plate with your Big Shot because it is so thick.

A Masculine Birthday Card

Celebrations Duo, Hexagons Dynamic Embossing Folder, Stampin Up, susanstamps.wordpress.com

The 2017 Occasions Catalog has some really fun and different things in it.  First of all there is the Celebrations Duo Embossing Folders.  They deboss instead of emboss.  It is a little hard to tell by the picture but the outside of the letters press into the cardstock.  A normal embossing folder does the opposite.  This set has two words.  One is the “Happy” I used on this card and the other says Celebrate.

Another fun item in this catalog is the Hexagon Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder.  This folder embosses deeper than most folders giving the card a 3D look.  It is thicker than regular embossing folders too so you don’t need to use a bottom plate with your Big Shot.
