Nailed It bundle - Thanks for always building me up.

Hello and welcome. Today's cards features the Nailed It Bundle from the new 2017 Occasions catalogue. I have also used the Urban District set and a strip of Urban Underground patterned paper as they compliment this bundle very well.

I couldn't wait to have a play with both these sets after seeing the colour challenge from the Global Design Project #GDP069. The colours in the challenge, are perfect for this bundle especially Delightful Dijon and Silver. The free choice colour,  I went with is black although that is considered a neutral, I have also used Smoky Slate for the metal sections of the images. 

This is the first card I created using the Global Design colour challenge. I have created a background using the images in a collage pattern making use of the colours.

The handles of the tools has been watercoloured in using an aqua painter and have used Arches smooth 300 gsm watercolor paper. Delightful Dijon was used and black stazon ink used for the initial stamping of the images.

The screws and nut has been die cut using the Build It framelits dies in the bundle using silver foil paper.

The thin strip patterned paper is from the Urban Underground specialty designer series paper.

I have used the "Happy Father's Day", sentiment to showcase the hexagon frame from the matching dies in the bundle.

The metal sections have been coloured in using Copic markers in cool grays.

The second card uses the same layout, however I have used copic markers exclusively to colour in the images. The smaller screws and nuts have been silver heat embossed. Memento Tuxedo black ink is recommended with colouring using copic markers.

I love the steel ruler die from this bundle and have die cut it out using silver foil paper and it just looks like the real thing. It also make a great border accent on the card.

The sentiment from the Urban District set helps make this a general theme and to give as a Thank you or a Congratulations card.


The inside of the card are the same for both cards. Copic markers have been used to colour in the tools and Smoky Slate for the screw and nut. The sentiment "Thanks for always building me up", is from the bundle.

I hope you have enjoyed and found inspiration,  I would love to hear your thoughts. Both the Nailed It bundle and Urban District set are a lot of fun to use and perfect for creating masculine themed cards. Purchasing it as a bundle, saves you 10% and purchasing either the Urban District stamp set or Urban Underground designer paper will qualify you to get a FREE item from Sale-A-Bration.
