A CLASSIC CAR

05.21.19 Orange CarIt’s been quite awhile since we’ve done an easel card.  Debbie designed these cards using the “Geared Up Garage” stamp set and coordinating dies.  She chose a color scheme of Graphite Gray, Pacific Point, and silver and black foils.  This card is all about gears – definitely a guy thing although I am sure there are many gals out there that know more about cars and gears than some guys do.  Note the “tire” Debbie used to “prop up” the easel.  05.21.19 Car embellishment small

I thought I had ordered the Classic Garage Metal Elements that coordinate with this bundle – but we couldn’t find them (they were hidden in a drawer).  Debbie was going to use a tiny metal key as the easel prop.  No key could be found so she took a small silver metal button, but apart a black foil gear, and came up with a clever wheel!  Hats off to Debbie!

05.21.19 Red CarOn our second sample, we can see the metal key acting as the easel prop.  Of course nowadays, many cars don’t use keys but for a classic car, a key is the way to go.  The cars have been colored with Stampin’ Blends – orange above and red to the right.  Wink of Stella adds a glittery sheen to the colors.  You can color your car your favorite color – yellow?  green?  brown or black?  And you can choose or make your own prop for your easel card 

05.21.19 Car red If easel cards are new to you, perhaps this side view will help.  Your measurements are the same as for any horizontal A2 card – 8 1/2 X 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4”.  However, you add an extra score at 3” and that is where your card starts to rise.  The top layer is 5 1/4 X 4 but is only adhered to the card front to the 3” score line.  The small metal key or the tire Debbie constructed act as the prop to hold the easel in place.  This card would be perfect for a birthday, Father’s Day, or just to show someone you appreciate them.

Now that you’ve seen the 4 cards for June Stamp Camp, please let me know which day you are coming and how many of each card you wish to do.  The cost remains $14 for any 4 cards and $3 for each additional card.  The cost includes all supplies and materials.  There will be a snack on the kitchen counter so no one starves, and water and soda pop are in the fridge. 

Let’s discuss some dates

June 4th – The new 2019-2020 SU catalog takes effect.  At this time, I don’t know if retiring items will go on the clearance rack at a discounted rate, or not.  I have the new catalogs.

June 6, 7, 8th – June Stamp Camp.  June 6th from 12 Noon – 6 PM.  June 7th from 2 – 6 PM.  June 8th from 9 PM – 4 PM.

July 18 & 20 – Christmas in July.  Thursday July 18 from 12 N – 7 PM and Saturday July 20 from 9 AM – 4 PM.  The 4 cards will be out at June Stamp Camp and will be posted to the blog in June.  I will need a firm count on how many you will want to do of each card.  Prices will be available shortly.

August 1, 2, 3rd – August Stamp Camp.  We will be doing late summer cards – a bicycle card, a hanging flower basket card, and a flip/flop card.  Our 4th card may be a Christmas Card.  We will definitely be including Christmas cards at our September – October and November Stamp Camps.

Hope to see you next week!
