Painter’s Palette Stamp Set in Emerald Envy
Sometimes simple works well. This is a ‘one tone’ card with loads of texture. This project features a new Stamp Set, Painter’s Palette, and one of the new In-Colors about to be released in the new 2016-17 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue – Emerald Envy. It also showcases some other new products – Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack, Foam Adhesive Strips and the new Layering Squares Framelits Dies. Whilst these dies look similar to the old Square Collections Thinlits (about to retire), they are completely different.
How did I do this?
The centre Whisper White sentiment layer is mounted on Foam Adhesive Strips and the frame has also been diecut.
To make the picture frame I removed the legs and top of easel.
The swipes of colour within the frame have been ‘stamped off’ (stamped without reinking between) which gave it that nice shading effect.
For the hanger I cut a thin strip of cardstock using my Stampin’ Trimmer (which handles really thin cuts of cardstock easily as long as you have a sharp blade). The cardstock was then folded in half at an angle. I just looped this strip over the fussy cut pintack which had been adhered by a section of the new Foam Adhesive Strips. These strips have more dimension than Stampin’ Dimensionals which worked well for the pintack.
I stamped the background with the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set as there was a little too much white space. And again I ‘stamped off’ to provide some shading.
The layers: Emerald Envy 5-1/2″ x 4-1/8″; Playful Palette 5-1/4″ x 3-7/8″; Whisper White 5-1/8 x 3-3/4″ .
