We tried, and I think we succeeded! Cindee and I were stamping one day with the Timeless Textures stamp set, new in the 2016 Occasions catalog from Stampin' UP! and we decided we wanted to try lots of layers and a collage look.
Do you love layers, collage techniques, speckles, grunge, script fonts, etc.? If so, you should try this stamp set! The Timeless Textures set, found on pg 29 in the Occasions catalog (or HERE online) is an amazingly versatile set!
In the Sahara Sand background, I stamped several of the Timeless Textures images, overlapping and in different colors. I used Delightful Dijon, Lost Lagoon, and Smoky Slate. I like using the color suggestions in the Stampin' UP! catalogs - they are listed under each Designer Paper Pack or Stack. These color suggestions came from the Going Places Designer Paper Stack which we used in 4 places on this card.
We also layered a piece of 5/8" chevron ribbon on the card. Oh, and don't forget you can make "banners" with your designer paper, either by clipping the strips with the Hexagon Punch or the Banner Triple Punch!
Oh, and the coolest part, which is hard to see in the photos, but it's there.. we splattered the card with the Gold Wink of Stella pen, by just hitting onto our finger and letting it splatter on the card.. it's so pretty in person!
We also used the Going Places Cardstock Pack for the card.. it makes it so easy when all the supplies are right there! See all the product photos at the bottom of this blog post for easy ordering for these supplies.
The round stamp image was stamped with the new Gray Archival pad on Sahara Sand, and punched out with the 1" circle punch, then layered onto the 1-1/4" circle of paper from the Going Places stack.
The ribbon, even thought it's Bermuda Bay, we thought coordinated just fine with these supplies. IT's NEW! You'll find it on pg 35 in the Occasions catalog, or below in the supplies.
I thought you might find it helpful to see a close up of the amazing patterns in the Going Places Designer Series paper stack!! You will get 48 sheets in your 6x6 paper stack for ONLY $8.00!
