New and Undefined

September 9, 2014 No Comments

I’m a big believer in you can make something from nothing.  After all, isn’t that what we papercrafters do all the time?  We apply our creativity to our bits and pieces and make something.

Well, I offered a class for this last Sunday and was sure that when I took a moment to look, I’d be able to take one image from here and another from there and come up with my design.  But, after a quick look I thought I had nothing.  My low mojo might have had something to do with that.  I put on my thinking cap and remembered the “nothing” I had that could be turned into any “something” I wanted.  Before I share that with you, let me get some updates out of the way.

And, this morning there was a new photopolymer stamp set revealed.

You're Wonderful 139158

This 18 piece set will be available for only 6 months.  Get the details and see some samples here.

Now, back to my “nothing”.  I pulled out a package of Undefined that I had here and set to making something.  I found a picture that I liked and traced elements from it.  Then transferred the tracing to the rubber.  That’s one of the wonderful things about Undefined, you don’t have to be able to draw – though you can if you prefer.

I carved this large double pomegranate stamp and a very small one with just seeds. The starter kit comes with everything you need except tracing paper.  I prefer Vellum cardstock for that.  There are also two sizes of refills, a single piece refill and a triple piece refill.

Are you ready to see how this looks inked up?

I decided on a tone on tone card.  I’ve used a Very Vanilla base followed by a piece of Very Vanilla cut with Hexagon Hive.

I hope you’ll excuse the darker backgrounds in these two photos.  But, I wanted you to be able to see the beautiful, shimmery gold embossing.

The pomegranate stamp was inked with Versamark and then the image was sprinkled with Gold embossing powder and heat set.

After cutting out the pomegranates, they were added to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Now, I wanted to keep the clean and simple (CAS) elegance but I also wanted a little bling, so I added a few Gold sequins and done.

You really do need to try Undefined. It’s quite fun.  And the sense of satisfaction you get from making your own unique stamp is wonderful too.
