Hello Monday! It’s a holiday here, so no school – which means another day to sleep in late, the potential for an adventure and a short week to enjoy.
I’m hopping today with the Stamp Review Crew – a group of international Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who all share projects using the same stamp set. Today’s top shelf selection is Whiskey Business – a carryover into the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue. You can see the full list of participants on the Stamp Review Crew blog.
I love this stamp set for some broody male cards. I haven’t been able to move away from the classic deep tones that whiskey stereotypes involve. I’m excited to see the inspiration from the hop and the designs the crew bring to the table.
I’ve themed these cards using the Simply Elegant DSP. I hadn’t considered it particularly masculine but the mix of geometric patterns works really well for a variety of occasions.
The whiskey bottle & glass are stamped in Early Espresso and coloured with Stampin’ Blends – Pale Papaya and Crumb Cake. The sentiment and garnish are gold embossed.
I’ve used the grey tones – Basic Grey and Smoky Slate for his card to tone with the DSP patterns.
I added Soft Succulent for the second card to create a colour contrast and something a little brighter.
The background layer is Smoky Slate with lines scored at 1/2” intervals. Such an easy way to add texture!
The amber ale in these cups are thanks to a more yellow undertone – So Saffron and Crumb Cake. So many options for authentic whiskey colours. Combining two (or three) colours of Blends gives a range of different colours from the existing marker range.
Here’s a card I shared previously using blue tones (see original post here) –
Keep hopping to see what the rest of the crew did for this hop. Next up is my gorgeous friend Nikki Spencer who always creates something breathtaking!
Thanks for joining us today. Have a wonderful week!
