Introducing… Background Builders Classics and Sentiments Outlined
Welcome to Day 1 of the July 2019 Release product introductions. This is the fun part where myself, my guest designer and the design team get to show you LOTS of inspiration, using all the new products leading up to 26th, July, Release Day!
Today’s products are two new clear stamp set, another addition to the Background Builders collection, featuring classic designs and then a new mini clear stamp set featuring 3 fun sentiments in an outlined font.
First up I have the second card I created from the stamped colourful background using Background Builders Classics…
I simply adhered the strip to a white card base & then adhered a panel with another of the sentiments from Sentiments Outlined. This time I have coloured the sentiment in with a black fine liner. This gives the sentiment a whole different, bolder look. I finished the card off with some of my favourite Caribbean Ocean Nuvo Drops – yum!
I was then inspired to create this card…
I used the ‘Celebrate in Style’ sentiment and simply repeatedly stamped it to fill a white card stock panel. I started with the sentiment that I have coloured rainbow style, and then stamping either side, above & below to create a repeated design.
Again I used a black fine liner to colour the sentiments apart from the focal sentiment, in which I used Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Blends. I adhered the stamped panel to my card base using foam adhesive and filled in the gaps between the sentiments with retired Stampin’ Up! Enamel Stars.
Following the colourful rainbow feel I decided to pair the ‘Have a Wonderful Birthday’ sentiment with Mid Century Modern Florals, which is from the April/May 2019 Release.
I started by stamping the open scalloped circle on a white card stock panel & then stamping the bursts in a rainbow of Altenew inks. I love how Gloss White Nuvo Drops change to the colour you drop them onto, like they have in the centres of the colourful bursts.
Again I coloured the sentiment in a rainbow of Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Blends to match the rainbow of the sentiment. I have used a Lawn Fawn rectangle die to cut and layer the sentiment panel.
And here is how I combined both the challenges onto my card…
The sketch was perfect for some ink blending using my TE Blender Brushes 😉 I used Altenew Pink Pearl ink and then Cloudy Night & Silver Lake for the thick stripe and scalloped stripe.
The sentiment is stamped in Cloudy Night and then I used White Blizzard Nuvo Drops to fill in the sentiment to give a sparkly finish.
That’s all the samples I have to share with you today, but it wouldn’t be a release without a daily blog hop full of inspiration!
As usual my AWESOME Design Team and wonderful Guest Designer this month, Keren Baker have worked their magic with todays products, so be sure to hop along & see them. This is the order of the hop…
