Masculine Monday #78 with Stampin' Up!

I hope everyone is having a great start to the week.
I had fun making this weeks' Masculine Monday card that features the Geared Up Garage stamp set from Stampin' Up (link below).

Here is a pic of all the supplies I used - except for the designer paper. I used some from my retired bin that I am still trying to use up, but I linked to some coordinating paper below for you.

I started by taking the car from the Geared up Garage and my new favorite gray ink - Gray Granite - and stamped it repeatedly onto a piece of white cardstock cut to 4 x 5 1/4" to make my own designer paper. The trick to this is to make sure you stamp some of the images off the edge - it makes it look like you cut it from a larger piece.
Next I stamped one more car onto some scrap white cardstock, colored it in with a blender pen and some Poppy Parade ink. I used the black marker to color in the tires and then I die cut it out with the coordinating die.
The sentiment is from Sunshine Sayings and stamped in Poppy Parade then cut into a little banner. I used a scrap of black paper to cut another banner to put behind it.
To put it together I adhered the stamped panel to a white card base cut to 4 1/4 x 11" and scored at 5 1/2". I searched through my designer paper pile and pulled out a piece that worked well with the design, cut it to 5 1/4" in length, tore one of the long edges and adhered that to the card. I adhered the car with some craft foam that I cut with the car die for some dimension. 
Finally I added the sentiment by tucking it under the torn edge .

This was pretty quick and easy. I love using my stamps to make my own paper - I don't do it that often - not sure why - I need to do it more :)

I'm playing along with the Seize the Birthday Anything Goes #159 challenge. There's still a bit of time left if you want to join in on the fun.

Happy Stampin'
