Sneak Peeks Day Three: Handyman Jack

Meet Jack. He's a Jack of All Trades, and he is Queenie's main squeeze (you'll meet Queenie tomorrow). This hunky handyman is ready to work! I had a lot of fun making this card. The finished size is 5.25" square. Jack is stamped on C.C. Designs White Cardstock with Brilliance Graphite ink and is colored with Copics. I cut him "out of the box" before matting the panel on Chocolate Chip cardstock. I stamped the nails image on the Figgy paper with Close to Cocoa ink. For the sentiment, I inked up part of the sentiment stamp with a Chocolate Chip marker. The entire sentiment reads "My Sexy Handyman", but I wanted to show you the versatility of the set -- just in case you were making a project for someone other than your man! I sponged around the image and sentiment panels with Creamy Caramel ink, and I embellished with Jumbo Eyelets and natural hemp twine.


There is a lot of dimension on this card -- I used Stampin' Dimensionals on all the layers. It is a fun card IRL! It's funny -- Jack actually looks a lot like MY handyman. When I was editing the photo on our computer, Caroline walked up and said "Daddy!!" -- I cracked up! :)

You can see more samples of Jack and all the new releases on the ATS Blog, where Christine is having giveaways all week! You can win the new sets and more! Also, you can see all the Design Team samples in the DT Gallery At All That Scraps.

I really appreciate you stopping by! I hope you have a great day today -- thanks for making me a part of it! :)

I love this and cannot wait to get my hands on it! Great card. My "handyman" has a birthday coming up and his present is a brand new power drill, so I think this stamp would be quite appropriate!

Thanks for sharing!
