Pootlers Annual Catalogue Blog Hop – One Wild Ride

pootler's blog hop

Thank you for joining us on another Pootlers Blog Hop! We’re showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!

I hope you had a chance to look through our Annual Catalogue and you’ve got your favourites already. For today’s project, I’ve used One Wild Ride Stamp Set from page 115, to create a Father’s Day card for my hubby.

Why did I choose this set? As a teenager I was a rebel girl: I was listening to Gun’s N’ Roses, Aerosmith and other rock stars, wearing skinny jeans, long hair and combat boots, I always dreamed of having my own Harley-Davidson. Silly, I know, but who wasn’t those days 😉 No surprise then, this set was on my first order. And what can I say, hubby has a soft spot for Good Ol’ Harry too 🙂

One Wild Ride Stamp Set

To really show off this stamp set I decided to create a twisted easel card, which sounds more complicated that it sounds. I have to admit I wanted this card to look really rough and distressed, so you could nearly feel motorcycle’s grease j/k 😉 (Chris loves distressed cards with lots of layers).

The base of my card is standard top folded A6 in Basic Black. And the “front” of the card is scored in half diagonally to create an easel. For the proper card front I’ve used a piece of Basic Black again, a slightly smaller piece of Basic Black and Whisper White for stamping.

Basic Black panel I left intact. On Basic Grey, I stamped with this gravel-splatter -kinda stamp from the set, with Versamark, and heat embossed it in silver. Next, I took Basic Black Archival Ink and smooshed it across the panel, where the embossing was. It makes it look a little bit dull, but you can still see the Basic Grey card.

To add some shine and dimension to the motorcycle, I dabbed my stamp in Versamark first. Next, without stamping, I dabbed it in Basic Black Archival Ink, so once it’s stamped, Versamark was on top and I heat embossed the image using clear embossing powder. Again I’ve used gravel stamp and stamped it all around the edge of my WW panel. heat embossed it in silver and smooshed Basic Black across the panel where the embossing was. Next, I took a cloth and “took off” some of that ink which created that  dull metal look. Because there was a too big contrast between Whisper White and all that black, I smooshed Basic Grey across the centre of the panel. To finish it off I added some distressing to the edges using scissors.

For the inside of the card, I’ve used banner and sentiment from Guy Greetings Stamp Set. I hand-cut the banner and add it to the card using dimensionals. I also stamped tire trail stamp on a scrap piece of paper, cut it out and adhere it to the bottom of the inside panel. To create a stopper for the easel I stamped Route 66 stamp on a piece of whisper white, cut it out with scissors and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I next used it as a guide to create two slightly bigger layers to go underneath the original image. One in Whisper White and one in Basic Black. Glued them together and adhered it in the corner of the inside panel. I could now assemble the whole card.

One Wild Ride Father's Day Card Twisted Easel Card

The sentiment for the front comes, again, from Guy Greetings Stamp Set. I stamp it on a scrap of Whisper White and just simply tore it out. It’s hard to see on the picture, but I added few strings of new Basic Black Metallic Thread underneath the sentiment before adhered it with dimensionals.

I’m really happy with this card, and it’s got our daughter approval too, as she loved it. And I know Chris will love it to knowing how much love, and work I put into this card.
