Stamp Focus: Geometric Landscape + Video

by Svitlana Shayevich

Hi, friends!

Svitlana is here. Today, I brought you three ideas of how the recently released Geometric Landscape Stamp Set can be used.  This set had an awesome background stamp and several nice sentiments.

WATERCOLOR GALAXY

For my first card, I used a very simple and I would say straightforward approach for such stamp – embossed it over a background. For some reason, such geometry often is associated, for me, with a galaxy theme, so that’s what I chose for the background.

First, I made a watercolor galaxy background onto a watercolor panel using the Watercolor 36 Pan Set. I let it dry and then sprayed it with Pure White Ink Spray. After that, I added several bigger splatters of the same product.

I let the background dry completely and then white-embossed the Geometric Landscape Stamp Set onto it. Next, I foam mounted the panel onto a Solar White card base.

Next, I white embossed a sentiment from the set onto a Jet Black cardstock strip and popped it in the bottom part of the card. Lastly, I added several white crystals.

MARBLE AND ROSE GOLD

For my second card, I tried implementing a modern design of rose gold and marble.

First, I stamped the background onto a Solar White panel using Gray Denim Crisp Dye Ink. I used my MISTI for stamping and left the stamp mounted to its lid after stamping.

Next, I filled several polygons of the background with a marble design. I used two layers of a cloud from the Rain or Shine Stamp Set to make the marble. I then stamped this with Gray Denim, Cloudy Night, and Charcoal Crisp Dye Inks. I used sticky tape to mask off the outside part of each “cell” I was working on.

After that, I placed my panel back on the MISTI and stamped the background again using Embossing Ink. Next, I added Rose Gold Embossing Powder and heat set it. Then the panel was foam mounted onto a white card base.I used the Glitter Flurries Washi Tape to make the flower cluster for the card. I applied the tape onto white cardstock, cut several elements out of it, and adhered it on the top part of the card.

Lastly, I popped the sentiment from the set, which was white-embossed on a black cardstock strip.

FAUX DIMENSION

For my last card, I went with a very bold and graphic design, creating a faux dimension of the yellow panel. This card is a bit of an unusual size of 5 1/2 x 3 1/2.

I started by stamping the background onto a yellow panel of 5 1/2 x 3″ using Honey Drizzle Crisp Dye Ink. Next, I cut the bottom part off along the background design.

To create the faux dimension, I inked some polygons using Maple Yellow and Honey Drizzle Crisp Dye Inks. I masked off the outside area of each cell with tape before inking.

Some cells I left “empty”, i.e. I didn’t do any inking inside. This way using two yellow ink pads of a different shade and the original cardstock color, I got three different colors which created this illusion that this design is dimensional.

Next, I foam mounted the panel onto a Dark Gray card base, and lastly popped the sentiment onto the card.

Below you can find the process video where you can see how this card was made. You can watch it here or in HD on Altenew’s YouTube channel:

I hope you liked my ideas and find them interesting to try.

Have a wonderful day!

Really great use of the tape on your second card. It really is pretty. The first card is really nice. The colors do make me think of Startrek. I just expect to see the Enterprise come out of the background!
