Ahhhh, ‘45s and albums, remember those?  An Eighties gal through and through, I had to try out this great stamp set from Avery Elle called For the Record  and put my own “spin” on it.  How fun is that huge record?

I wanted to capture the shininess of a fresh new album, so I heat embossed the record using Versafine Onyx black ink and clear embossing powder.  The stamp set has multiple sentiments to add to the front so I chose “one of a kind”.  The embossing really adds a realistic texture to the stamped image.  I used the separate die set to die cut the record (and sentiment later on.)

For this next step, I kind of experimented.  I wanted the background of the card to have a fun laser beam style like some album covers back in the Eighties sometimes had, so I grabbed some neon inks and blended a trapezoid using some Post-It tape.   I settled on Hero Arts Neon Yellow and Green inks to blend.

I ended up trimming out my trapezoid and adhering it to the front of an A2 sized white notecard arranging my record and sentiment over the top.

To stamp my sentiment, I used some Hero Arts Butter to Orange Ombre ink.  A perfect complement to the neon.  Nuvo drops in Caribbean Ocean added another pop of color.

This was such a fun card to make, I hear my old record albums calling my name!  Thanks so much for joining me today :).
