SCT Let's Stamp Together - July 2022

So you may have noticed that I'm going out of order with my SCT Let's Stamp Together card kits. This is because I'm playing catch up from the past year of kits that I haven't done, and I'm doing them in order of how the kit intrigues me or if I feel inspired by samples created by other people.



This kit was no different from the last in that I felt inspired by someone else's card design and based my card off of that. I joked to my friend that I was copying others' designs, but really... it is just inspiration. Some cards I create are made exactly like the card I'm inspired by except by using my supplies... or I might change a sentiment, color, orientation, etc. to my liking. Essentially all these kits come with classes on how to complete the designers' cards. However, for some kits, I'm feeling more inspired by what others have done with the kit than by the original design - which should be a complement! After all, if we share our work, it's likely to inspire someone else to create, and that's the whole point, isn't it? At least my friend and I think so.


The July 2022 kit was created by Vicki Boutin Designs. I saved the original pictures and video, but I was more inspired by another crafter's interpretation of the card kit. Kathy's card from Expressive Paper really caught my attention with the mixture of pink and gold colors, as well as the use of the gold paste with the stencil, as well as the use of dies and stamps.



I began this card by die cutting three large hearts from pink paper. I then created my own gold paste by mixing a gold pigment ink with some Super Thick Gel. It seemed a bit dull at first and not very shiny. I went ahead and used it on the three hearts using 3 designs from the stencil. After they dried, I replaced the stencil onto the hearts and pressed the gold ink pad over top of the paste to give it a bit more shine.


Next, I took a white A2 sized panel and stamped the large heart various times in black ink. I then went back and stamped the small heart various times with gold ink. I die cut the finished panel using a stitched scallop rectangle die from WPlus9. Then I adhered that to a 4x5.25 piece of pink cardstock paper - the same paper as the hearts. I adhered the hearts to the finished panel with some tape adhesive then cut off the excess from the sides. I then adhered this whole piece to a black A2 sized panel and put that onto a top folding white card base.



I diecut the "hello" sentiment from black cardstock and the shadow from brushed gold cardstock. I adhered the two pieces together and finished off the sentiment with some glossy accents and let that dry. Once dry, I popped the sentiment up with foam adhesive and finished off the card with some pink CTMH gemstones.


Overall, I'm happy with how the card turned out! I did some things differently on purpose from the original poster to make it my own, but my card was definitely heavily inspired by Kathy's card. It was fun to make this card, and get to play around with some mixed media paste and gold is always fun to work with.



I was also inspired by Angie Blom's card.



To which I used similar techniques to create these two cards, finishing off with a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp:
