Fun with textures! Faux Suede

This past week I was supposed to go to Syracuse for a Stampin' Up! Regional seminar. We were going to have a full day of stamping fun and they had even asked me to do a 5 minute wow presentation on stage. I was both scared and excited to do it. Unfortunetely the event got cancelled at the last minute due to severe snow.

So, I decided the projects I was going to show on stage would be perfect for my stamp club and my team's stamp and share night. I showed them 5 different projects that I had prepared and they got to make 2 of them

Here are some of the projects:

Stamp Sets: Loads of Love Stamp Set, Loads of Love Accessories Stamp Set

Paper: Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White Cardstock

INK: Chocolate Chip, Going Gray, Basic Black, Blush Blossom, Close to Cocoa
Blender Pens, Crystal Effects, Stamp-a-ma-jig (if desired), SNAIL, Spritz bottle with water

Stampin’ Write Markers: Brocade Blue, Basic Black, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa

Can you see the shine on the fender of the card? I love using Crystal Effects to create a 3D shine effect!

To create the texture portion of this card:

Take a strip of cardstock and spritz with water on both sides of the cardstock and crumple in your hands, ensuring to create texture.  Set aside to dry. 


This is the card I was going to demo on stage, I actually used Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder to add DAZZLE to the designer series paper. It's really quite sparkly in person!

To create the textured butterly (chocolate):

Using your bone folder, work the cardstock and fibers of the large cut butterfly.  Make sure to do both sides and all areas but be careful for the middle of the butterfly.  You will see the fibres become loose so you can now tear the edge so the paper completely splits, this gives you a beautiful, textured, faux suede look.


Stamp Set: With All My Love Stamp Set

Paper: Rose Red Cardstock, Very Vanilla Cardstock, Sweet Pea Designer Paper Stack

INK: Rose Red Classic Ink, Versamark Ink

Accessoried: Big Shot, Top Note Die, Beautiful Butterflies, Sponge Daubers, Paper Snips, Horizontal Slot Punch, Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Snail Adhesive, Bone Folder

You too can make fun projects like these as a STAMP CLUB MEMBER or as a DEMONSTRATOR! Ask me for more details!
