Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.
Week 46 – Soft Suede
Tonight I have two cards for you, both using the Stamparatus to show you how wonderful this product is and if you like things perfect, this is the tool for you!
Card 1 – is a masculine card using For The Record stamp set. My card base is Basic Black with a layer of Soft Suede which has two sentiments stamped down the right side using the Stamparatus and the hinged stamping technique. This means you stamp once, move the acrylic plate down one notch and stamp again and repeat to have a uniform pattern. I stamped these in Soft Suede and Memento Black inks.
The record image is stamped in Versamark Ink onto Basic Black card. I added Clear Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool. I cut it out using the Layering Circles dies. I added a few Dimensionals to the back of the record but didn’t take off the Dimensional backings. Leave them on so the record spins. I pierced a hole through the centre of the record and the Suede layer using the Take Your Pick Tool and added a brad, gently closing it at the back. These layers are added to the card base with Dimensionals. Now the record spins!!!
The heart is Real Red card and cut using the Give It a Whirl dies and added to the brad with a glue dot.
On the inside, I placed a Basic White card insert and partially stamped the record three times across the bottom in Soft Suede ink.
Card 2 – uses the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set and coordinating Love You More Than dies.
My card base is Thick Basic White with layers of Soft Suede and Symbols of Fortune Specialty DSP. The stamped top layer is created using the Stamparatus and the Wreath Builder technique or Stamping in the Round (SITR) technique. The cookie outline is Soft Suede ink and the solid fill image is Crumb Cake ink. It reminds me of a plate of cookies sitting on a marble benchtop 🙂
You can see the die cut word ‘cookies’ has a 3D raised look – I applied an Adhesive Foam Sheet to the back of the Soft Suede layer and die cut this word in the centre, before gluing the white stamped layer on top to cover it up! This also gave this top section some extra depth.
On the inside stamped with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede inks and the same on the envelope!
