Hope you can join me later on today on Create & Craft for my shows featuring Sam Poole's Vintage Inventor series of stamps. Details in the left-hand side bar.
Today I'm sharing one of the cards I'll hopefully be demonstrating on the first show at 12 noon.
First I dragged my Barn Door Distress Ink Pad over one side of the inside of the Creative Expressions Brick Embossing Folder. I then popped a piece of white card onto the clean side of the folder and carefully folded the inked side on top of it. I used my brayer over the top of the folder to help with the transfer of ink to my card. N.B. I did not run the folder through an embossing machine.
I carefully removed my card from the folder and added some Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder and heat set it. I tore around the edges of the edges of the brick background.
I popped the brick background through my Grand Calibur with the That Special Touch Cogs Mask. I inked over the background using Faded Jeans Distress Ink Pad and Cut & Dry Foam. I added some splats using Faded Jeans Distress Stain.
I tore a slightly larger piece of white card and inked it with Barn Door Distress Ink and Cut & Dry Foam.
On the white background card I stamped several small images from the Vintage Inventor series using Barn Door, Faded Jeans and Weathered Wood Distress Ink.
I inked a piece of card with Faded Jeans Distress Ink and stamped Mr. Inventor using Jet Black Archival. I cut him out leaving a slight border around the edge.
I dyed some American Seam Binding with Barn Door Distress Ink. When dry I tied a small bow with 2 lengths of the ribbon and added it to Mr. Inventor using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.
I stamped the light bulb from the Vintage Treasures stamp set onto white card and inked with Barn Door Distress Ink. I cut it out and then added Glossy Accents to the bulb area and put aside to dry.
I stamped the sentiment from the Vintage Inventor stamp set in Jet Black Archival and cut it our using Spellbinders Labels Two. I inked around the edges with Barn Door while still in the die.
The card was assembled as shown.
