I couldn't resist inking up the new Fix It Fred set. Just look at his tool belt and the pencil tucked behind his ear!! Tooooo cute!!!
Pin It
I went with the bright colours from my new Echo Park A Boy's Life 6x6 paper pad and used the Deconstructed Sketch DS36 for the layout. I cut out the orange strip with the open zig zag border Die-namics. It's perfect for masculine cards.

Fred is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copic markers. I dotted the colours on to make him look a little furry.

Check out the new Tool Charms Die-namics!!! Are they not amazing!!! I ❤ having something other than stars to use on masculine cards!!! There's a wrench too, which I've used on the inside of my card. The Tool Charms Die-namics cut out the tools (obviously) but they also emboss little details on the tools to make them more realistic. Cool!!! The sentiment is stamped onto a banner I cut out using the first place award ribbon Die-namics.

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from the set and added a row of tool charms.


Here are the Die-namics I used:

Thanks for stopping by!
