Hello there, I hope you are enjoying the Bank Holiday weekend.
I'm here to share some cards I made this week for the launch of Rare Earth's Pin Up Collection
The collection includes 3 sets of stamps filled with awesome retro imagery. There are signs, sentiment, frames, a Vintage car and 2 stunning pin up girls.
I was asked to make samples and had a very tight deadline to work to (24 hours)
I decided to work in themed sets, creating 3 lots of 3. Each set has a different feel from the next, working this way helps to keep the ideas flowing.
My first set has a retro 50's American diner feel to it. I worked with Blue,Red and white. Some of the samples use water colour and others were coloured with alcohol pens.
This next set has a pop art feel to it, I used a stencil to add dots over he images to give it a funky look.
The car bursting through the front of the card was my daughters ides and I love how it's turned out.
Lastly I wanted to use the image to create more of a vintage look. I have stuck with Kraft card, beige and brown ink and white card. I wanted to show how the stamps could be used to create a card for a man using the car image, I heated embossed the car and used some Rare Earth Dessert sand ink with water to colour it.
I hope my cards have given you some inspiration on how you could use these amazing stamps, I'm totally in love with them and had a real struggle letting them go in the post for the launch show.
You can catch the launch on Monday at 11am on Create and craft TV
