Stampin’ Up! has introduced a new collection that’s available today – the All Together Collection. It consists of a stamp set, coordinating dies, a pack of 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, and 5 sets of Stampin’ Blends in various skin tones. They can be purchased as one or as individual components.
I have been on a little bit of a Brights kick lately so I couldn’t just leave the black and white DSP alone. For this card, I added some pops of color throughout.
To make this card, you’ll need the following supplies:
- Thick Basic White cardstock, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ along the long side
- (3) pieces of the All Together DSP: 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″, 4″ x 5 1/4″, and 4″ x 1 3/4″
- scraps of Basic White and Real Red
- 7″ length of Faux Linen Ribbon in Real Red
- Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
- All Together Bundle (stamps/dies)
- Stampin’ Blends Light Combo Pack
- Layering Circles Dies
- Label Me Fancy punch
- Many Marvelous Markers
- Basic Supplies (Trimmer, Snips, Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine”, Dimensionals, Multipurpose Glue)
To put the card together, I did the following:
- Adhere the largest piece of DSP to the card base
- Stamp the ‘love hands’ in Tuxedo Black on a scrap of Basic White- color in using the Light Combo pack Blends; cut out using coordinating die with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I also cut out a heart using a scrap of Real Red and the heart die from the set.
- Stamp sentiment in Tuxedo Black on a larger scrap of Basic White; using Stampin’ Write markers from the Many Marvelous Markers set, color in the individual lines of the ‘starburst’ stamp. I chose a rainbow theme – Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Shaded Spruce, Pacific Point, and Gorgeous Grape. I stamped two of these ‘rainbows’ around the sentiment. I then cut that out with a circle die from the Layering Circles set. I then used the Label Me Fancy punch to punch slits on either side of the sentiment to allow for the ribbon.
- I used the same markers in the prior step to color in various hearts on the DSP.
- I adhered the smallest piece of DSP along the bottom center (vertically) of the remaining piece of DSP using liquid glue. I wove the ribbon through the slits on the sentiment piece and adhered the sentiment to the smaller DSP panel with glue. I taped the ends of the ribbon to the back of the whole DSP panel using regular transparent tape.
- I used liquid glue to adhere this DSP panel to the card base. I then used glue to adhere the hands over the sentiment. I used a Dimensional to affix the heart.
I think this set is so versatile and I look forward to using the different skin tone Blends more. I will admit, coloring and shading are not my strong points but maybe if I keep working on it – – – – I’ll get better.
