Monochromatic Melon Mambo – Super Cool

Happy Saturday friends, Melon Mambo, in all it’s vibrancy, is our colour of choice for the Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Insta Hop. My goodness, Melon Mambo loves to make it’s presence felt, from inky fingers, ink on the outside of the ink pad, ink on the table – Melon Mambo everywhere 😂

As I work through these monochromatic challenges, I try to pick a stamp set that really ties in with the colour of the week. I settled on the Super Cool stamp set. The glass bottles in this stamp set remind me of my childhood in Sri Lanka, where we didn’t have a car and we got everywhere by walking or taking the bus. Some days, when we had walked a lot and we were really tired, my Dad would take us to the local bakery and buy us a special treat of a coca cola. It used to come in a bottle like this and boy was it refreshing on a hot day.

In keeping with the theme, I went with raspberry and regular cola for today’s hop. I used the masking technique to create the row of bottles with Crumb Cake and Melon Mambo inks.

MASKING TECHNIQUE

  • Stamp 2 cola bottles on scrap paper
  • Fussy cut on the line towards the inside section. This will help you when stamping, to not have gaps in the images.
  • Stamp the bottles which are going to be in the foreground first.
  • Apply Seal adhesive to the back of the scrap cola bottles. Stick it to your hand to remove the extra stickiness. This will make it temporary.
  • Now attach your repositionable bottles on top of the ones in the foreground and stamp the ones at the back.
  • Keep arranging the repositionable bottles and stamp more as needed.

I’ve used the new Fun Patterns Embossing Folder from our Online Exclusives range, on the white panel behind the bottles. The ribbon was coloured with a Light Melon Mambo Stampin’ Blend, adding a soft coordinated element to this retro card.

Have you tried the Masking Technique? You could even have some fun creating cute scenes with it. Here is a list of products I have used to create this card. Orders of $150 will also receive a free pack of embellishments when you shop with me in March.

Monochromatic Starry Sky – Rock & Roll

Happy Saturday friends, It’s lovely to be able to share with you my first card using the Rock Star bundle. I’m a fan of all music stamp sets so this particular suite was going to end up with me at some stage. I just got it in last week and I love all the fun options that are available with the stamps, dies, embellishments and the black and white Designer Series Paper. It’s a great guy set and those black and white papers are so versatile.

I followed the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #fms626 . I started by inking up my guitar in Tuxedo Black. Then I wiped back the neck end of the guitar with a paper towel and coloured the stamp with the Starry Sky Stampin’ Write Marker. I added any details that may have come off with the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker. Then I stamped and die cut the image. On top of this I stamped a texture image from the Of Art & Texture stamp set. This is part of our Online Exclusives range. I really love how this stamp added just that little bit of colour to the image.

For the background some Shimmery White Embossing Paste was coloured with Starry Sky ink refill before application. The shimmer is so much fun and adds to the rock star look of this card. I applied it fairly thick as I wanted a more uneven, textured look.

I die cut a circle using the Stylish Shapes dies and added some blending through a mask. This was cut in half to form the sketch. The guitar was added on top with a pick die cut from Silver Foil. To complete the card I added a heat embossed sentiment with a little star from the embellishments in the Rock & Roll suite.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely weekend and a long weekend if you are in Melbourne!
