A Man and His Grill

We had a great weekend! We attended the Nokesville Day Parade (Aidan walked with his Tae Kwon Do class) and then BBQ'd both days since we had such beautiful weather. With all the great fun we had this weekend I thought it was only appropriate to use the King of the Grill stamp set for this weeks Stamping 411 challenge.

I started by cutting an Oval piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Coluzzle cutter along with a Pumpkin Pie mat. Using the new clear mounted stamps I was able to perfectly stamp my BBQer in the middle of the oval. Next I colored him in using an assortment of Stampin' Write markers, along with my Blender Pen and Classic Ink pads. The grill looks exactly like the Weber my husband got a couple of years ago and absolutely loves so I tried to color it to match his black and silver BBQ. I sponged the edges of the oval with Old Olive ink with the Stamping Sponge.

I used a piece of Tempting Turquoise cardstock for the cardbase with a piece of Island Oasis DSP.
I layered a piece of 1/4" Very Vanilla and 5/8" Old Olive Grosgrain ribbons before tying a faux bow with both Very Vanilla and Tempting Turquoise Ribbons. The greeting is stamped with Old Olive ink and punched out with the Modern Label Punch and matted on a piece of Tempting Turquoise
that was cut out on the Big Shot with the Curly Label Bigz die and Punch Windows. Finally I added Vintage brads to the label before using dimensionals to make the greeting pop.

This is such a fun stamp set and I love how this card turned out, manly and fun all at the same time.

Have a great week!
