Masculine stamp sets are hard to come by, finding a stamp set that is timeless and yet youthful, but not too young is even harder!! The Epic Celebration stamp set is perfect for creating cards for the cool dudes ‘n’ gals you know. This is another exclusive Sale-A-Bration item that can be yours with a $50 purchase.
Using my Stamp-a-ma-jig, I was able to perfectly stamp the electric guitars and sentiments to create this classic card. I used my light Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends marker to color the electric guitars, added some splatters from Timeless Textures stamp set and some Black and White Baker’s Twine. The image piece was then matted with cardstock and a piece of retired designer series paper.
This next card has several layers. First, I stamped and fussy cut the electric guitar on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock, then colored it using both the light and dark Stampin’ Blends from Cherry Cobbler combo and Smoky Slate combo packs. For the sentiment piece was die cut using Layering Circle Framelits — with second largest circle and scalloped circles. I used the Huffing technique and my Stampin’ Write markers to color “EPIC” in Cherry Cobbler and the rest in Basic Black to create the sentiment piece which I embellished with three black rhinestones (now retired, but you can create your own black rhinestones by coloring Rhinestone Basic Jewels with a Black Sharpie). I created my own dotted designer paper using a scrap of Whisper White cardstock, Cherry Cobbler ink and the dots stamp with first and second generation stamping. I embellished the dotted designer paper with a thin strip of Silver Foil. The large layer of Cherry Cobbler was dry embossed using my new Simple Stripes embossing folder, and I carefully swiped Basic Gray Archival ink pad over the raised embossed image to add color and dimension. The piece was then mounted on a piece of Basic Gray cardstock cut 5″x8-1/2″ and folded in half.
This timeless yet youthful Epic Celebration stamp set is a must have for your craft room. And, it can be yours free with a qualifying purchase during Sale-a-Bration promotion with runs through March 31st.
Until next time, sending you crafting hugs and inspiration wishes!
