Welcome back to our Colour Creations Showcase as we continue our showcase of over 50 beautiful Stampin’ Up! colours in alpha order.
This week we are showcasing Real Red, a vibrant red from our regals family.
If you have a person in your life who loves playing chess, cards or dice games, the “Game On” stamp set is one you’ll want to add to your collection.
I decided to create a chess board for the chess stamp, using the smallest stitched square die from the Stitched Shapes dies to die cut 6 Real Red squares and 6 Basic Black squares.
I laid the squares in a checkerboard pattern and adhered alternate squares of red and black to a 12 x 9 cm Basic White layer – I wish I’d gone a tiny bit slower to get my alignment more precise!
The card base is half a piece of A4 Basic Black card stock folded in half, with another Basic White layer in between.
Before I adhered the two top layers to my card base I wrapped Whisper White twine twice around these top layers and tied a bow.
The chess pieces were fussy cut using my paper snips and the sentiment die cut using the stitched rectangle dies – two red rhinestone jewels add a tiny touch of bling.
Thanks to my friend Tina, I’m gradually forming the habit of stamping inside all my cards. I’ve used a chequerboard stamp from the “Game On” stamp set and the happy b.day stamp from the “Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set” – I thought the graphic quality of this stamp worked well with this style of card.
I can’t wait to see what everyone else has created with Real Red today!
