Geared Up Garage Card – Soot Technique

I designed this in May for a masculine card option.  And, I thought the car image in this Geared Up Garage set would be perfect for the Soot Technique.  So glad they carried this over from the previous catalog, since it has several sayings to handle multiple occasions.

The car image in Geared Up Garage is perfect for the Soot Technique on this masculine card.

Here’s a close up.

The funny thing was, I had just decided to do away with my table cloths on my class tables opting for just cutting mats under our grid paper.  So, I told everyone we needed to be a little more careful with tools to protect the table.  Then, I said “ok, tonight we are playing with fire and candles”… lol.

Soot Stamping Technique

I used the Let It Ride stamp set for our technique sample and let the edges catch fire on purpose so it would look like an old western painting.

Stamps & Tools:

Little Elephant Baby Card

I love stamp sets like the Little Elephant that come with a punch!  I hadn’t used this one yet, but I’ve had it for a while.  I love that the ears can be punched out with the Elephant Builder punch too.  The set and punch will carry over into the new catalog in June, but the bundle pricing is only available through June 3rd.  I used Night of Navy and Granny Apple Green for this one.

My stamp clubs will make this one this month.  You could easily change the green to any color…everything goes good with Night of Navy (LOL).

Tip:  Since my Night of Navy was so juicy, I had to scrape some ink over with a popsicle stick to get the detail stitching on the elephants to show (otherwise, they would have come out solid navy).
