Crafty Secrets Car Classics

These are some cards from a class I taught last year. It was a Stamp of the Month class, and the stamp set we used was Car Classics from Crafty Secrets.

I was a little excited to hold a class with this set because our customers often comment that they are stumped when it comes to making cards for men.

This first card uses paper from October Afternoon, with a little sponged ink and some layering onto black cardstock. We stamped onto cream gloss cardstock with black StazOn ink.

This next card has Graphic 45 papers from a couple of different ranges on it, and some light colouring with Copics to match the King of the Road emblem to the papers:

This next card has paper from Teresa Collins, some sponging with Distress Inks and spritzing with water. Love this technique to really age a piece:

This last card is the more technically difficult card (I like to include one in most classes).  The paper is October Afternoon, and the car was coloured with Copics before being fussy cut.

 We made the car pop through the paper - love how this turned out:

Thanks for looking!



  1. Hi Teresa, and happy new year to you.
    These cards are awesome. I specially love the last card. The car popping out the paper is great!

  2. They're all fantastic, but the car popping through the paper is brilliant!!! It's so clever and so beautifully executed. FABULOUS!!!

  3. LOVE that car crashing through the paper...I cased it for a mechanic's Father's Day card!

  4. Hi Teresa, Wow - I just spotted your fantastic card on Pintrest and had to re-pin it on our 'Inspiring Stamp Samples' board and I wanted to say thank you! All of your cards here are brilliant and thank you so much for showing off our Car Classics Stamp set so magnificently!


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave me some love!
