SSINKspiration 2017 Occasions Catalog Countdown #2: Urban Underground

All good things must come to an end, in this case it's our Christmas vacation so back to school and work we go!  Just a couple more days until the 2017 Occasions catalog is released so it's time for another additional of the SSINKspiration blog countdown, today it's about the Urban Underground Suite, one that I'm sure will be very popular for all the dudes we know and love.

I started with Delightful Dijon cardstock for the cardbase and then added a layer of Basic Gray cardstock as a mat for the cardfront which is Very Vanilla with the nuts and bolts from the Nailed It stamp set stamped all over.  Next I took a piece of paper from the awesome Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack and cut out a circle using the Big Shot and Layering Circles Framelits (I used the same framelits to cut a mat out of Delightful Dijon cardstock.

The saw image was stamped in Basic Black Ink and then colored in using Smoky Slate and Basic Gray Stampin' Write Markers.  I wanted to give the saw a little metallic look so I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the blade and bolts parts before cutting it out. 

The greeting is from the same stamp set and was stamped in Delightful Dijon ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and then cut out with the Big Shot and Stitched Shapes Framelits before attaching it to the cardfront with dimensionals.  The final touch was to add a bow tied with Linen Thread.

I love all the fun images in this set and cheeky sayings that go along with them, so many fun options.  The other design team members are sharing some great cards using other products from this suite so make sure to check them out and then add them to your wish list soon!
