Be Inspired Blog Hop - Sale-a-Brations!

11 January 2018

Welcome to the Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop. You may have just arrived here from my lovely friend Maike Ulbrich from Germany - it's she just the best?! 

The theme for this hop is 'Be Inspired by Sale-a-Bration'.

Stampin' Up!'s biggest promotion of the year is here and every year they bring out exclusive products that just have to make it into my craftroom! For today's hop I have used Epic Celebrations from page 12 of the brochure and keeping with my crafting goals for this year - to make more masculine cards - I've kicked it off with a card for my hubby. It's his birthday tomorrow and he does love his guitars. I was trying to replicate (the best I could) his white Gretsch guitar, however I been advised the shape looks more like his Ibanez - pfft, whatever - he's getting a handmade card and that's should be good enough right?! lol 

I embossed the image using White Emboss Powder onto Basic Black Cardstock and with careful precision cut out the neck of the guitar. I then stamped using Archival Black into Thick Whisper White Cardstock and cut the body out and adhered the neck using Multipurpose Glue. Those crafty lines around the outside are hand-drawn using my own Artline pen.
