Challenge #225 at Shopping Our Stash is ~~ Go Paperless!!!

Looking for my Clear it Out Tuesday post scroll down or click HERE

Shopping our Stash is going paperless ~~ which means NO patterned paper allowed.  Now I make lots of cards without patterned paper until that is the challenge LOL. I really had to put my thinking cap on for this one. Fortunately I needed a masculine Birthday card, you know the ones that are a pain to make. I used a classic car stamp from Class Act Rubber Stamps, they are a Canadian company and go to Scrapfest in Kitchener in the spring. I googled the colours of the '57 Chevy although I should have remembered on my own.

I used a diamond type embossing folder I picked up at Winners one day, I embossed temping turquoise and layered it on black. The dots I used are ones that I have made with perler beads.

The sentiment is also from Class Act Stamps 

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you will join us for the challenge ~~ Go Paperless!!!


  1. A true classic! Love the teal, and the home-made beads, too.

  2. Fantastic card Barb! Love that embossing folder and the cool colours!

  3. Happens all the time! Something you do regularly, then a challenge specifies it, and... mojo goes walkabout. :D Classic car and great card. :)

  4. This is gorgeous, Barb! I love the fun sentiment on the inside! I like car images for masculine cards - I so struggle with masculine cards! Love your new embossing folder - wish our Winners would have stuff like that!

  5. Great card Barb, cards for men are such a painful make..you totally nailed it here. Do you live in Kitchener? My Grandma, lived there for years and I actually went to visit when I was 12!! How strange is that! Cx

  6. Wonderful card.
    Smart to use an embossing folder to replace the pattern paper.

  7. hahaha i'm totally chuckling at your first paragraph b/c YES, that is sooooooooooo me... do something 77 times in a row until someone says i HAVE TO do it... then, NUTHIN, lol! this is brilliant tho, you totally pulled it off!!! ♥
