Tomorrow (Friday,August 31st) marks the 50th Anniversary of the last concert given in Canada by Elvis Presley in Vancouver (my town). As Elvis was the "King of Rock n’ Roll" I thought I would share a card I made using the Rock n’ Roll technique.
The stamp set is called Autumn Fest and will be available starting Sept 1st at 30% off the regular price during a new Stampin’ Up! promotion called Fall Frenzy. When you purchase $40 in merchandise you qualify to purchase one of the following sets offered at a 30% discount: Autumn Fest, Bitty Boos Too, Haunting Halloween, Thoroughly Thankful, Elementary Essentials, Stem Silhouetes (from the Holiday Mini).
So how do you rock n’ roll stamping style? Here’s a quick tutorial..
First ink up your bold image stamp in the lighter of the 2 colours you’ve chosen – this allows the darker colour to show on the tips of the image and also eliminates the possibility of contaminating the lighter colour with the darker colour ink.
Next angle your stamp against the 2nd colour (darker) pad so that when you roll the stamp around you only hit the tips or edges of the image.
Then stamp on your cardstock – done! Make sure you clean your stamp thoroughly before reinking for additional images.
The ribbon was done using the Double Rectangle punch. Start in the middle of the strip and punch your rectangles.
Slide the punch up so that one of the rectangles is in the negative space created by your first punching. Punch – you will now have 3 holes.
Continuing sliding the punch up continuing to line up one of the rectangles with a negative punch until you have punched all the way along the strip.
Thread the ribbon through the holes by feeding the ribbon from both end.
Tie a knot or bow where they meet in the middle of the strip.
Thanks for the tutorial, love how you did the ribbon.
