Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.
Week 47 – Smoky Slate
Smoky Slate is from the Neutrals collection. This is another colour I don’t use a lot of, and I really did struggle as to what stamp set to choose. As I was looking through my stamp sets, Very Versailles was one that hasn’t seen much love. I actually really like it, but for some reason, I cannot do the vintage style that comes naturally to so many. Challenge time!
This card is very simple and not a lot to it. I embossed a piece of Rich Razzleberry card with the Tasteful Textiles 3D embossing folder and glued it to a Basic White Thick card base.
Using the Stitched So Sweetly dies, I cut the white panel in my Cut & Emboss Machine.
The script image is stamped in Smoky Slate ink and the leaves in Bermuda Bay ink. The sentiment stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink onto a strip of Smoky Slate card. This was glued to the white card with Multipurpose Glue and then I used my Paper Snips to trim the edges so they were overhanging slightly. The panel was then added to the card base with Dimensionals and a little gold Bumblebee Trinket added with a Glue Dot.
On the inside, I stamped the scripty image again in the bottom corner in Smoky Slate ink.
I love the font of this sentiment and it could be used for so many different occasions; Birthdays, Sympathy, etc and it is not overly feminine or masculine – I love this!
