Stampin’ Up! Basic Beige City Sights Kit Alternatives Card  

Stampin’ Up! Basic Beige City Sights Kit Alternatives Card  

Welcome to week six of our Art With Heart 2024-25 Colour Creations blog hop!

Today we’re featuring another new colour, Basic Beige, which is a new addition to the Stampin Up! colour range. Basic Beige is a great replacement colour for the now retired Sahara Sand.

I’ve created this graphic to show how Basic Beige compares to the other light brown neutral/core colours in the Stampin Up! colour range.

I’m always on the lookout for masculine cards and I love anything with buildings, so the new City Sights Kit was a kit I just couldn’t resist. I love these water coloured cityscape designs in neutral colours, its masculine charm, and these big city skylines.

As this is an all-inclusive kit it includes so many different elements!
* City Sights Photopolymer Stamp Set
* Pebbled Path Stampin’ Spot
* 8 printed card bases and 8 printed envelopes
* Shaped die cuts, printed sentiments and corrugated cardstock accent pieces
* Copper metallic embellishments
* Mini dimensionals and tear’n’tape
* Acrylic block

My favourite element is this fabulous line drawing stamp set. It reminds me of happy times in New York.

I’ve used this stamp set to make two alternative cards in a monochromatic colour scheme of Basic Beige and Pebble Path.

For card one I drew a line in pencil and stamped along the line to create a city horizon and added a narrow strip of Pebbled Path offcut from the printed sentiment sheet.

I used the dotted grid stamp to create a cloud effect in the sky.

For card two I used the Basic Beige offcuts from the shaped die cuts to frame a single stamped image of the city sky.

The Basic Beige offcut was adhered dusing the mini dimensionals – it gives a really cool effect that you can see in this close-up photo below.

One of the “happy birthday” printed sentiments was cut in half and placed top and bottom of the framed image.

I did also make a couple of the cards as per the instructions in the kit and I love these cards too. Here are the four cards I’ve made so far. I can’t wait to make some other designs using this city skyline stamp set.

Now it’s time to hop in over to our next participant, the lovely Andrea Sargent – I can’t wait to see what Andrea has made this week!
