Seashore Stampers - Father's Day/Masculine Theme



Hello everyone.

I am back with a Father's Day card design using the Geared Up Garage stamp set (item #148590) and coordinating dies (item #148521). This is a fabulous stamp set for the men in your life. What man or teenage boy is not fascinated by some aspect of a car - whether it be simple maintenance to keep it running, rebuilding an engine or the entire car or simply driving a car.


When this stamp set first came out, there was a coordinating pack of 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper but it has since retired. So, in my Facebook Live crafting session of May 16, I demonstrated how to create a background using stamps and ink. You can watch the video here.

I've made several cards with the set for birthdays and it's always a big hit.

The coordinating die set allows you to cut out many of the images and when adhered to your card with dimensionals, they add more visual interest.



Cutting & Scoring Measurements

 Card Base: Whisper White 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", scored in half at 4-1/4"
1st Layer: Basic Black 4" x 5-1/4"
2nd Layer: Whisper White 3-3/4" x 5"
Scrap black to cut out scalloped square die
Scrap Whisper White for stamping
For the greeting: Whisper White 3-3/4" x 1"; Basic Black 4" x 1-1/4"

  2. Great card! Thanks for showing how to use without the co-ordinating DSP ... I find once the DSP is retired I am kind of lost so I appreciate your inspiration!

    1. I agree. It's the best option especially when the stamp set carries over to a new catalogue but the paper is gone. And don't forget to use different colours too. Then you are totally recreating our DSP.
