Off the Grid – see on page 108 of your Stampin’ UP! catalog

Here is my version of the card see at the upper left hand corner:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe picture in the catalog is not actually a card, but the cover on a note pad.  (Guess that really doesn’t matter.)  Back to the card, I thought the layout was just fun.  Embossing the Off the Grid stamp twice with Gold embossing powder made it stand out.  Then I used my lovely aqua painter to swipe broad strokes of old olive and bermuda bay inks.  I did spritz it with smoky slate and bermuda bay.  (I put 15 drops of reinker into my spritzers and filled the rest with rubbing alcohol.)  I added a narrow layer of bermuda bay behind the top layer.  It seemed to make it pop the color a little more.

I frequently use my catalog for a source of inspiration when designing cards.  You do not need to reinvent the wheel each time you make a card.  We have sooooo many great ideas between the pages of our catalogs, USE THEM!

We will be making this at the November Kismet class.  Click here to get registered for class.

Happy Stamping!
