G+T stamps | Handmade Card

Hello! We are back here on the blog now that our fabulous NEW website has launched! Sharon is here with her final DT post for us, sharing a beautiful card created with our KEEP YOUR GIN UP stamp set and RENAISSANCE stencil…

Hello there. This is my last post as a DT member for Visible Image.

I’m really sad to be saying goodbye to the VI team because I have had lots of fun using their awesome products and I really enjoyed working for Mark and Helen, who are THE BEST bosses! However, I have decided to take a break from all DTs in 2022, and possibly even a little break from card making (although I will still make a few cards just for fun). I have too many other things that need my attention (like learning to speak Portuguese fluently!) so my card making will be just for my own pleasure next year.

Anyway, Keep your gin up! I’ll still be around in blog and Instagram lands from time to time.Right, to my card for today. I love a bit of rhubarb gin and that was the inspiration behind this card.

Here’s how I made it.

First stamp the gin bottle in a purple ink onto some scrap card and colour around the glass part of the bottle with lilac and lavender alcohol pens.

Next stamp two more bottles – one in black ink and one embossed in white heat embossing powder. You will use the labels on those two bottles and the bottle cap on the black version.

Colour part of the label on the black ink version with some grey marker pens. Colour a rectangle of black around the ‘% vol’ and ‘cl’ part of the label on the heat embossed version. I used a Zig marker for this as it is a water-based ink and therefore it is easy to wipe it off the white embossing. Cut the whole label and the bottle cap out on the black inked bottle and cut the black inked rectangle from the white embossed version. These will be layered up on the purple bottle.

 Now create a background by blending bundled sage Distress Ink through the renaissance stencil, then stamp the ‘lemon slice’ stamps around the edge of the panel in twisted citron Distress Oxide.

Before assembling the card,  stamp the drips onto the label with a darker purple ink. Now add the background to the card blank and stamp the ‘keep your and ‘up’ sentiments. Finally layer the gin bottle up onto foam as follows: purple bottle, black inked label & black bottle cap, and lastly the white embossed small black rectangle.
