For today's card, I combined today's featured sets along with Classic Dad along with a black/grey color scheme. After stamping the background in memento black, I stamped the saying and truck onto some scrap paper then stippled both using basic grey ink before over stamping the saying using Tim Holtz weathered wood distress ink.  The only embellishments used are some black baby brads to keep the masculine feel.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs to leave some love for a chance to win today's featured set.

Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.

  1. Good job with combining the sets.

  2. That antique car was the perfect image to accompany all the gears. Good job!

  3. Bonnie you did a good job/art of matching up the gears with the classic car.

  4. Love your card. I thought about using this set too but went a different direction. I think it is also time for me to get new glasses or have my brain checked. As I was reading your description, I read "Baby brads" as baby birds. So I was having to take a second look because I didn't think I had seen birds on your card.

  5. A very cute card. The car set is perfect with the gears. I used it on my cards, too.
    The big truck would be great with it, also.

  6. Love that little added car so fun! Great design!

  7. Both images that you added to your card is pretty nice...
    The gears and car goes well together.
    Well done

  8. Fabulous Masculine birthday card.

  9. Bonnie,
    I really like this card and your stippling is always awesome - and when I try stippling - mine doesn't look nearly so good.

  10. Wow very pretty card that you did

  11. I like the combo of the gears & truck, nice job!

  12. Love the color scheme you used. I like the truck being added nice addtion.

  13. Love the mix of gears and vintage car! A great masculine card.

  14. Live the monochrome colour scheme you have used. Putting a vintage car with the gears stamp is a fantastic touch!
    Thank you for the blog hop Karen P x

  15. Love the gears paired with the antique card! Fabulous card.

  16. The car goes perfectly with this set.

  17. A fabulous masculine card! Love how you combined stamp sets.

  18. Splendid job done and love how you combined the stamp sets!

  19. Very nice pairing of the sets!! Great card. Love how you kept it mostly unembellished and let the stamps do the talking. Wonderful job!
