SU Well Dressed Card

Today I wanted to share with you a card I created for the Colour INKspiration Challenge #74. The colour combination for this challenge is Night of Navy, Whisper White, Basic Grey and Mango Melody and was inspired by the following image…

If you would like to find out more about these challenges, join in or see the entries, you can find them on Facebook here.

My project uses the Stampin’ Up! Well Dressed Stamp Set and Well Written Dies. I decided to use the key image from the Stamp Set to make a Congratulations card which would be suitable for someone moving in to a new home or passing their driving test.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock and this is followed by a slightly smaller layer of Night of Navy cardstock. The main card front is a slightly smaller again piece of Whisper White cardstock.

I have stamped the key image in Night of Navy and Basic Grey ink all over the card front. This is then adhered to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment piece is created by layering a Whisper White cardstock circle onto a Night of Navy cardstock circle (using the 2″ and 2.25″ Circle Punches respectively). The sentiment itself is cut from Mango Melody cardstock using the Well Written Dies.

To add an extra little touch of the beautifully bright Mango Melody, I coloured a length of Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon using the Dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends. I adhered this to the card front using Mini Glue Dots and then adhered the sentiment piece over the top using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I think it’s so important to look closely at your stamp sets and think about the less obvious project that you could make with them. For example, the Well Dressed stamp set is great for traditionally masculine cards but that is not the only use for it. Not all of the images are ‘masculine’ and its much more versatile than you may think at first.

Well Dressed Card

If you’d like to watch me create this card (and maybe craft along), you can find the YouTube link at the end of this blog post.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock and this is followed by a layer of Country Club DSP. The tie image is stamped in Night of Navy ink onto Whisper White cardstock. To achieve this repeated stamping, I used the Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus which allows a hinge-step technique.

The Stamparatus is a fabulous stamping platform which is great for those who struggle to achieve consistent results when stamping as well as enabling techniques such as this.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and is stamped in Night of Navy ink onto Whisper White cardstock. This is cut out using one of the Stitched Rectangles dies. A larger piece of Garden Green cardstock has also been cut out with one of the Stitched Rectangle dies and helps the colours in the DSP stand out. The sentiment piece is adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I hope you have enjoyed this blog post. Don’t forget to check out the Well Dressed stamp set while you can!
