Sale-a-bration 2024 Blog Hop

Let's start off the new week with the Sale-a-bration 2024 Blog Hop and share amazing projects created using products you can earn free with a qualifying purchase during Sale-a-bration. There are so many wonderful products to choose from and our Design Team will be sharing their ideas and projects to help spark your creativity. 
For my card design, I chose to use the Trusty Toolbox Designer Series Paper, which can be earned free with a qualifying $50 order. I love that the designs in this paper pack coordinate with the Trusty Tools Bundle in the January-April 2024 Mini Catalog to offer even more creative options for your projects. I wanted to create a masculine card design that would work for a variety of occasions using images from the bundle. I love how it turned out and I hope you do too.

This fun masculine card design is easy to create and the hardest decisions will be what designer series paper to use for the background and what tools to use for the focal image. There are so many wonderful choices that you could create a variety of designs to have on hand. For this card design, I chose to use the Poppy Parade screwdriver background design for my card front and used Basic Gray cardstock for the card base to help make it pop. To create the focal image, I stamped the wrench, hammer and pencil images onto Smoky Slate cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used the stamp images to "fill" in the images, using Lost Lagoon Classic ink for the wrench and the pencil and Poppy Parade Classic ink for the hammer. I used the Light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends Marker to enhance the shadows on the stamped images to add some depth and dimension. For the tape measure, I stamped the image onto Basic White cardstock with Tuxedo Black ink and used the solid image with Lost Lagoon Classic ink to color the main part of the tape measure. To finish coloring the image, I used Light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends Marker for the inner circle and side and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends Marker for the tape and button on the side. I used the coordinating dies to die cut the images out as well as some nuts and bolts from Smoky Slate cardstock and the sentiment label from Basic Gray cardstock. To assemble the card design, I tied a piece of Gray Granite Baker's Twine around the center of the card front, wrapping it twice before tying a knot on the left side. I heat embossed the sentiment with White embossing powder and added it over the top of the twine with Stampin' Dimensionals, leave a gap along the top of the label so that I could slide the Basic White circle underneath. After attaching the circle, I added the tools so that the bottom of each piece is hidden underneath the sentiment label and I popped up the top of the wrench and the hammer with a Stampin' Dimensionals to add some dimension. I added the tape measure to the bottom right side of the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals so that it slightly overlaps the sentiment label. To complete the card design, I added the nuts and screws as embellishments. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that this fun masculine card design will encourage you to give the Trusty Toolbox Designer Series Paper a second look. It is great for masculine cards and when combined with the Trusty Tools Bundle, provides you with so many creative options.
