Rev Up the Teenager

This is a card that we made this Friday at our "Stamp & Chat" night. We had a lot of fun with lots of show $ tell. I so love having the friends over once a month or so as they really inspire me too!
And I've also seen that this card meets the challenge criteria over at Stampin Up Only Challenges this week to make something masculine, Yay!! So please jump over and have a look at the great cards there  and have a go!
I used the tyre stamp from Rev Up the Fun ( thanks Katerina for letting me borrow your stamp set! I miss it already!!)  as a 4th Washi tape here and decided to cut the ends of the Washi to make an almost arrow shape. And then had fun adding some Gorgeous Grunge taking the colours from the Washi - Calypso Coral and Crumb Cake. The Rhinestones are just Basic Rhinestones coloured with a marker - it seems I can't make a card - even a masculine one - without some bling!! The banners were cut with scissors.
Card stock:Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Whisper White
Inks: Black Stazon, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake
Stamps: Rev Up The Fun, Gorgeous Grunge
Accessories: Basic Rhinestones, Epic Day Washi Tape

It's Spring and the doggy friends are loving the warmer temperatures - though being Melbourne it is 25 one day and 17 the next so good to enjoy it when its "good." And obviously its such a hard life being a dog :-)
Happy stamping until next time,



  1. Awesome card, Jan! I love that you created a ramp for the car. There is so much action going on here, that I can't stop looking, LOVE it! Thanks for joining us at SUO Challenges!

  2. Oh, your card is fantastic!! Love the colors, use of the Washi Tape and the overall composition- perfect for a masculine card (and I know what you mean about the bling :-)) Also looks like your "furbabies" are having a great time enjoying the weather (great pictures- they are so cute)!! Thanks for sharing with us at SUO Challenges!

  3. Great card, Jan, and definitely a 'male' card, no worries there! x

  4. Yes to more masculine cards! Awesome card Jan! -Katerina
