Music Speaks | Guitar Stamp

Hello! We hope you are doing ok. We have a double helping of inspiration here on the blog for you today, first up is Ali with an awesome music themed card featuring our MUSIC SPEAKS guitar stamp and a sentiment that really resonates with us during difficult times…



Today I’m sharing a card which I think would be suitable for any teenager that is having a tough time during this lock down. Our lives have many, many songs which remind us of occasions happy and sad, and I often put ACDC on to lift my mood.


The colours are reminiscent of a Gibson SG Sunburst according to my hubby, the fiery colours just make me happy.



guitar stamps | music | handmade card | stamping


Cut a piece of white 300gsm card about 5 3/4″ square and pick a red, orange and a yellow distress oxide.



I’ve used: Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin and Crackling Campfire.



Use a blending tool and foam pads to apply some colour over the card.


Spritz water over your card and remove with a paper towel



Position the Short Circuit stencil over the deeper colour sections of the card and apply red oxide ink using the foam applicator.



Position the Scribble stencil over the yellow sections of the card and apply orange oxide ink.


Stamp the guitar on the right hand side of the card with black versafine ink, and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.



Tape the Play Guitar stencil over your card and stencil a little black gesso over the first column of figures.


Use a tiny amount of gesso on your brush and build up until you get a nice solid matt black finish.



Cut your card into 2 pieces and trim the sections so they are about 1 5/8″ and 3 1/2″ wide.


Take a bit of scrappy sponge and apply a little black gesso around the edges of both pieces.



Stamp the little star icon from the Believe in Unicorns stamp set over both pieces in gold pigment ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.



Stamp the dotty icon stamp across both pieces with black soot distress oxide and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.


Splatter a little white  over the cards by tapping a white paint pen.



Outline the guitar and the figures using a gold sparkle pen.



Mount the cards onto gold card with a 1/16″ border and then onto black card with an 1/8″ border.



Attach these to a black 7″ x 7″ card blank using double sided foam pads.


Add 3 black gems to the top right hand side.

    Awesome card Ali! Loving the vibrant colours against the black panels. Your stencilled background is gorgeous and the touches of gold really bring the stamps to life.

    Guitar Stamp | Music Speaks

    Good Morning! We hope you are doing ok today. Stempelfrida is here to inspire you today with an awesome card featuring the guitar stamp from our ‘Music Speaks’ stamp set, which is not only great for anyone who loves music, but for those hard to make ‘guy cards’ too!



    When words fail music speaks – this seems to come from my soul.
    Music really hits me to the core, and this is what I wanted to capture with my card. 


    guitar stamp | music card


    I inked the guitar stamp in several colours of Distress Oxides with sponges and stamped it. For this I used a stamping platform so that I could rework all areas that might not have seemed perfect to me at the first try. Then I cut it out and fixed it with spacer pads on the background, which was designed with acrylic paints and a gelli plate. I cut off two edges from the background so that I could glue it a little crooked on the white base card.  


     



    Under the guitar I glued a die cut swirl as well as the edge pieces of the background, which I had cut off at the sides.


    Now you probably want to know how I designed the background exactly, but unfortunately I can’t show you any pictures of it, because I didn’t want to touch my mobile phone with acrylic paint inky fingers. But I can try to describe a few areas to you. At the top left you can see for example the light blue spots. I had worked with blue paint and a stencil and wiped it with water. I dipped my background into the water-colour mixture from washing.



    The green stripes, which can also be seen at the top left (and elsewhere), are from a stencil called ‘Collision’, which I also used for a different background and which still had the green colour adhering to it. I just pressed it again here on my cardstock.

    I made the blue area on the right with a round Gelli Plate and the star from the ‘Stars and Stripes’ stencil. I also inserted the blue arc, which is mirrored with it. The greenish spots at the bottom left are from the ‘Fibres’ stencil.


    So you see, there is a lot to discover on my card today.



    Supplies
