Tim Holtz Gears Father's Day Cards

Geared Up Father's Day Card

I always find “Man Crafting” a challenge. Thankfully there’s Tim Holtz. I love his grungy rugged Alterations dies and folders. When I saw the gear die, I knew it would be perfect for Father’s Day cards.

Tim Holtz Alterations Gears

I bought this huge bucket o JudiKins Mica Gloss a couple of years ago at a stamp show and thought I could use it to achieve Tim’s signature distressed look.

Cut the dies from kraft cardstock and then went over them with Tim’s Distress Ink for Ranger in Black Soot. Sponged over that with Mica Gloss silver and pearl:

Mica Gloss Painted Gears

The cards are 5x7 and I used papers from  DCWV’s Tradewinds stack and C’oredinations .

I love the Tradewinds stack and it’s got lots of “guy goodness” with keys, maps etc.

Tim Holtz Gear Father's Day Cards

I left some of the gears plain and then ran a panel of the C’oredinations paper through a Sizzix Embossing folder and then roughed it up some more with a pedicure block. Yup. A Pedicure Block. Love the cosmetics section at Dollar Tree! Used sponges from there to apply my inks.

Finished with some metal adhesive thingies I’d picked up on a Michaels run.

Geared Up Cards

Yes. metal adhesive thingy is a technical artistic term !

Don't forget, I have a giveaway of Mod Podge goodies going on through Friday. Enter to win here

This is really cool! It's so hard to find guy crafts that aren't cheesy. Yours is awesome. My hubby is into cycling and he would love this. Thanks for sharing! :)

Nice Card! I just saw your comment on my Father's Day card and came over to look at yours. I like the gears. That would be neat to make for my brother who loves cycling.

Nice card! I love Tim Holz stuff too. We need more "guy friendly" scrapbooking stuff. :)

I adore Tim Holz. I always stare at everything in the display and try to create crafts just so I can buy the products! Wonderful project!

Have a blessed and wonderful day!
