One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop header

Hurray, it’s time for the One Stamp At A Time (OSAT) Blog Hop! This month’s theme is On the Red Carpet. This month we’re sharing glamorous projects (think the red carpet at the Oscars) and/or projects made using new products (as in rolling out the red carpet for the new stuff.) I decided to go a bit literal with the theme and create a project with a glamorous lady on the red carpet. The fancy lady is from the You’ve Got Style stamp set.

I created the texture for the red carpet background and for her fur coat using the suede card stock technique. It’s really simple – just burnish the paper with a Bone Folder on both sides and in all directions until the two paper layers separate. It just just take a minute or so. Each of the resulting two pieces will have a regular smooth side and a fuzzy suede-like side. 

 

Here’s what I made:

I created a red carpet and fur coat by burnishing cardstock with a Bone Folder until the layers peeled apart. This gives the paper a suede feel. #stampcandy

 

Here you can see the suede-like texture of the Real Red background and the Very Vanilla coat and hat. I just wish I could get the Wink of Stella on her jewelry and champagne to show up in a photo!Send this card to someone fabulous!
