In the midst of preparing for an impending ice storm, which is set to hit here Sunday, I managed to ink up the Nailed It stamp set for the first time. Oh my gosh! This was a bundle I had reservations in purchasing, but now that I have played with it, I LOVE it. The Urban Underground Designer Series Paper and Embellishments are the perfect choices for this set. And I can’t say enough about the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I wish you could see these hexagons in person. They are amazing! The sketch for today’s card comes from one of my favorite challenges, Freshly Made Sketches. Enjoy!
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
This finished card measures 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ when folded.
Watercolor Pencils rule! I colored the Screwdriver image using the Daffodil Delight and Basic Grey pencils. To add a little more shading, I added Delightful Dijon ink using a Blender Pen.
The adorable Ruler was created with the Build It framelits and Silver Foil. You can also get an idea in this picture of the deep impressions made with the Hexagons Dynamic Folder.
Of course, with a Screwdriver image, you just have to have Screws! Enter the Urban Underground Embellishments. How cute are these!
In keeping with the theme, I selected the “Sorry I screwed up” sentiment. But I think I will switch it out later for one of our many “Happy Birthday” sentiments, and use this as a masculine birthday card.
I cut the Label die cut from the Build It framelits out twice: once from Very Vanilla card stock and once from a snippet of Urban Underground Designer Paper. I cut the designer paper one in half, and adhered it to the back of the sentiment label, just for a little extra oomph!
If it is not already there, I would definitely add the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to your Wish List. It is a versatile classic. If you purchase it and the Nailed It Bundle, you would automatically qualify for a free Sale-A-Bration goody! You just can’t beat FREE!
I hope you enjoyed today’s card. As always, if you have any questions about the cards I create or the techniques I use, I am only an email away! Until next time…
