Choosing gifts for motorcyclist enthusiasts is easy: riding pants, goggles, bandanas—done!. But motorcycle-related cards are so much harder to find. Not any longer! This set is perfect for the hog riders in our lives. You’ll never have to search for the right card again because you can just make it.   

All of these cards will bring a thumbs-up from your guy!  If you're looking to create masculine cards, these two sets...Wherever You Go and One Wild Ride are great choices!

Spooky Fun

Spooky Fun Bundle with Home Sweet Home Thinlits card created by Dawn Olchefske for Control Freak Blog Tour #dostamping #stampinup

OK - so, I had intended to somehow incorporate the matching Paisley Framelits into the previous card.  But decided to keep the card Quick & Cute...(great for mass-producing).  But with the Paisley Framelits still out...

Spooky Fun stamp set meets Paisley Framelits to create fun ghosts by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

... as I was playing around with them, I noticed the paisley shapes looked like ghosts - woohoo, what fun!  I searched for a stamp set that might have some "face" images and came across the new Spooky Fun.  Stamped a couple of faces and voila...ghosts!

After stamping the ghosts, I figured they needed a house to haunt...though those ghosts look really happy.  Oh well, they still need a house.  So I reached for the new Home Sweet Home Thinlits and started building my Halloween scene

Spooky Fun Bundle with Home Sweet Home

  • Die cut the fence edgelit from Halloween Scene Edgelits from 2" x 4-1/2" piece of Basic Black cardstock (yes...it's a edgelit, fun!).  Adhere to 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Gray cardstock (trim off edges).
  • Stamp greeting from Spooky Fun with black ink
  • Die cut house pieces using Home Sweet Home Thinlits as follows:
    • House = 3-1/2" x 2" piece of Halloween Nights Specialty Paper (trim off scored edges to get final shape)
    • Door & Window = Basic Black scraps
    • Door Handle = Pumpkin Pie (from triple circle die
    • Additional cardstock pieces needed
    • 2 strips of 1/4" x 1-3/4" Basic Black for roof (trim as needed)
    • 5/8" x 3/4" Pumpkin Pie
    • Assemble house and adhere to card with Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Die cut ghosts with Paisley Framelits (the two smaller ones).  Stamp faces.  Adhere to card.
  • Stamp bats with black ink
  • Adhere completed panel to folded 11" x 4-1/4" Basic Gray card base.
  • Enjoy!

Blooms & Wishes card created by Dawn Olchefske for Control Freak Blog Tour #dostamping #stampinup

At my local Stamping Club Class last week, we tried the Craft Sheet Stamping Technique (we used a slightly different design and inks).  But I had to give my favorite color combo a try for today's card.  This technique creates a faux watercolor look.  See how...

Blooms & Wishes Craft Sheet Stamping

  • Swipe ink onto a Silicone Craft Sheet and lightly mist with Stampin' Spritzer (don't over mist or it will be too wet).  Use this as your "stamp pad"
  • Ink up stamp from the "misted" ink on the Silicone Craft sheet and randomly stamp images.
    • Inks used: Sweet Sugarplum, Rich Razzleberry & Mint Macaron
    • I recommend stamping on Shimmery White cardstock, as it withstands the extra water better.
  • Have fun!!
