I am so pleased this lovely set of stamps and dies is carrying over to the new catalogue when it is released early June. The animals are so cute and can be used for many different occasions.

For this card I used the wonderful new rectangle stitched dies which are becoming invaluable to me and because they give the layers of a card a special touch.

So Saffron card is such a pretty yellow and was used for the largest rectangle and a layer of Crumb Cake with the next size. I stamped the Crumb Cake with the wonderful Crackle Paint stamp, giving a really effective background.

Be Mine stitched dies have some beautiful hearts, I used the large scalloped one to cut in So Saffron card and stuck it down.

The rhino is stamped in smokey slate and the same colour blending pen is used to give extra shading, with a bit of daffodil delight on the beak of the little bird.

When the rhino is die cut, I added dimentionals to give it some height, and punched out a couple of sprigs with the leaf punch in vellum and added them.

The sentiment is stamped on whisper white card and I used the small wide rectangle die from the rectangle stitched dies to cut this, and again adhered using dimentionals.

I like to add some interest inside the card even if I am not using a greeting. This stamp is again from the same set and just adds a little something extra.

Hope you liked this card, and should you want to get the set and have a play yourself, click on the images below to order what your require, or if you are local feel free to contact me direct.

I created this card for the recent birthday of my fiance, he enjoys nothing more than spending time tinkering with cars. This is very handy when I enjoy my crafting, suits us both perfectly!

He was very impressed with the card which was very easy to construct. Stamping with these beautiful products can be kept very simple, or as embellished as you like. The beauty of card making and any paper crafting is you develop your own style and often this changes with your love of the hobby, mine certainly has, and continues to do so.

I used thick Whisper White card stock for the base and the wonderful classic garage 6×6 papers that will be retiring at the end of the month. The great news is that the stamp set and coordinating dies will remain. (Good tip is to order before the end of May to get them as a bundle and save 10%!)

Using the red background paper from the classic garage papers as a mat, I used another great paper which featured the image of the car stamp in the set. I stamped the car stamp in classic black, and using dimensionals I placed this over the same image on the paper, giving it a raised appearance.

Taking a strip of whisper white, I stamped it with one of the great stamps in the set in Real Red and added a couple of sets of gears I had die cut from the Silver Foil sheets available. Very simple but effective. Inside you can add further images from the stamp set to add interest.

I love this set of dies and stamps. It is so hard sometimes to find images for a male card. My father is another car nut, so I will be using this set for Father’s Day this year.
