Nailed It Sneak Peak – 2017 Occasions catalogue

Okay… so, it’s time to spill the beans. You may have noticed, my blog posts have been a little fewer of late. This is because I’ve been busy working away in the background on a little project for Stampin’ Up!

I was lucky enough to be chosen as a Display Stamper for the OnStage Live Event in Brisbane, last week. This was a three day event, where Stampin’ Up! launched the upcoming 2017 Ocassions and Sale-a-Bration catalogues to demonstrators globally. I was pretty stoked to say the least.

I was given two stamps set, a framelit die set, an embossing folder and a packet of embellishments. I’m really looking forward to showing you what I have been creating. These will be sprinkled in upcoming blog posts, so be sure to stay tuned wont you?

I was so happy when I saw the theme of product given to me to play with – “Yay! Guy cards!” I shouted and did a happy dance. I’m surprised you didn’t hear me from whereever you are! LOL!

Introducing: Nail It stamp set and Build It framelit dies

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! Nailed It

As soon as I saw these tools I was in heaven. I love how artistically authentic they look, so simple but so real. And of course, the stamps and framelits coordinate beautifully together.

Here I have created a corrugated iron background for them to sit on, which has rusted out and patched up – I’m sure we’ve all seen one of these in days gone by… I used a number of current texture style stamps set and Stampin’ Up!’s own Classic Water Colour inks only. This distressed look is all about technique – applying the right combination of colours using the right method and you can create anything with this distressed look.

I sometimes find social media can hamper my ideas, don’t you? I tend to limit myself on social media sites. So to be able to create and generate my own ideas using these new products was just the breath of fresh air I had been craving. Being able to play with new products before anyone else, was a relief as there was no ideas out there already. IT was GREAT! It was all up to me and my creativity.

I hope you are inspired and looking forward to more.

Until next time… Stamp Creatively,

(A Full list of supplies will be updated in January 2017).

    • Hi Virginia,

      This background, is all stamping and sponging – no folder used at all. It came out pretty well huh?! Stay tuned, I’m currently working on a “how to” tutorial for this. It will be published next month with the release of this stamp set.

      Thanks for stopping by… Rose


  4. I absolutely love this card! I would love to know how you did it and what all you used. I have several guys I could make this for. Love it!!!


  5. this card is amazing Rose! I’m currently trying to replicate your “rusty” effect and I have accidently used a bit too much red on my saws and they look like evidence from a Criminal Minds episode! ooops!!!!!

  6. I looked for the supplies list for the Nailed It card. It says you will have it Jan 2017, but I can’t seem to find it. I love this card.


    • I don’t have a account and really don’t want one. I just was wanting to know how you made that Nailed It card. I have several men that I could send that to. I love the background. Thank you.


  7. Love, love, love this card and the corrugated background it so amazing. Have you had time to create a tutorial? I’ve searched your blog and haven’t been able to locate it. I would love to know how to do this!


    • Hi there, thanks for your comments. I haven’t created a tutorial for this, partly because it was one of those times where I just made a mess with stamps, ink and paper. I will try to recreate it and see if I can do something. Thanks.


    • Hi Marty, This set is now retired, so you will not be able to purchase one brand new unfortunately. You may be able to find one second hand on different buy/sell/swap sites. Thanks.
