Hello and welcome to Mitosu Crafts by Barry & Jay. Today our projects uses the Woven Threads Suite for a new design team we are a part of. We are ecstatic to be joining these talented crafters.
TGCDT: The Gentlemen Crafters Design Team
The Gentlemen Crafters Design Team is the first all-male design team that we know of and we thank you for stopping by. The team consists of independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the world and we will be sharing our papercraft projects using Stampin’ Up! products every 2nd Friday of the month. You can continue along the inspiration hop and have a look at what The Gentlemen Crafters have created via the name links at the end of this post.
What did we create with the Woven Threads Suite?
So for today’s Gentlemen Crafters Inspiration hop we have decided to have a play with the beautiful Woven Threads Suite ~ Woven Heirlooms Stamp Set with Heirloom Frames Dies & 3D Embossing Folders Bundle. Plus we have also used the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper! Both of us have made a card to share with you, one of which has got a video tutorial.
Jay’s Card ~ Thinking of You Distressed Card
I decided to create a card that only uses the stamp set and a tiny bit of designer series paper, aimed for casual crafters.
The long design was stamped in Grey Granite on all edges of the Whisper White layer to create the frame. I then distressed the edges with my Paper Snips before sponging Early Espresso ink. This layer was then adhered on the Pretty Peacock mat then both on the cardbase.
I stamped another design with Balmy Blue ink on a strip of Seaside Spray card before adding on the card. The Woven Threads DSP was actually an off cut which I layered on top of the Gold Foil with a 3mm border. These were then adhered with Dimensionals.
The sentiment ‘Thinking of You’ comes from the same stamp set and was stamped with Cajun Craze ink then fussy cut. I finished the card by adding the two 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots.
Do you like the distressed look? Next up is Barry and you’re in for a treat with his card and video tutorial!
Barry’s Card ~ Thank You with Gilded Frame
I’ve made this card using all the elements from the Woven Heirlooms Bundle with the addition of the Floral Essence Bundle. If you want to see how it was made from beginning to end I’ve also recorded a video showing you step by step how it was made.
When creating this card I wanted to make it look like a gilded gold frame which is why I decided to heat emboss the frame with gold embossing powder. I was very happy with how it turned out and the finished effect.
Click on the image below and check out the video tutorial for this Woven Heirlooms Thank You Card with Gilded Frame.
Firstly I’ve cut my card base to measure 21cm x 14.5cm and scored it at 10.5cm followed by the cutting the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper to measure 13.5cm x 9.5cm. Once these 2 pieces have been prepared they can be stuck together. To create the other elements of the card you’ll need Whisper White Card stock, die cutting machine, stamps, ink & punches. All the items used during these projects can be found below with a direct link to our online shop.
We are loving the Woven Heirlooms Bundle and we hope you have enjoyed the card ideas we have shared with you today.
Thanks again for stopping by. Until next time, BYEEEEE!
