Happy New Year from the Just Add Ink team! We’re starting 2019 with a blog hop where you’ll jump between design team members in a great journey of creativity.
Today’s theme is “Something New” and I’m so excited to see what everyone has made!!!
I’m sharing with you a couple of cards I made using products from the new Classic Garage Suite in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.
I’m always quick to add the new ‘guy suite’ to my collection. Masculine themed cards can be the hardest sometimes – but a coordinated suite always makes it easier for me!!!
This suite comes with a stamp set (new cling style), framelits, DSP & cardstock pack, ribbon and oh-so-cool metal embellishments.
My first card uses the stamp set, framelits & DSP to create a fun card…
White, gray, black and a contrasting colour (Tranquil Tide in this case) is always a favourite colour combination of mine. I love it when the DSP falls into place!
Each strip of DSP is 4″ x 2″ which makes this card perfect for mass production because you’ll get 4 strips from each 6″ x 6″ DSP sheet.
I was pleased to see the Black Foil carryover and continue to be available in 2019. It’s perfect for cutting the cogs & gears. It’s best to apply Multi-Purpose Adhesive Sheet to your foil or cardstock before you cut to make it super easy to add the detailed image to your card.
I couldn’t resist adding my favourite Rectangle Framelits. The sizes available in this set fill a gap that had been frustrating me – sentiment panels!
The second card features more of the awesome DSP – this time the front & reverse side…
The DSP is cut at 3-7/8″ x 5-5/8″ and then the remaining strip cut at 3-7/8″.
I love this layout for a quick & easy card. The Happy Birthday sentiment from the Perennial Birthday stamp set is the perfect size (and font) to complete the patterned DSP.
And the metal key element is a nice touch to finish it off! I always buy the themed embellishment – it’s great for taking a card to the next level.
