Eastern Grasses meets RISSP

I try to avoid acronyms on the blog, but it’s going to get very tedious to type out Ranger Inkssentials Speciality Stamping Paper all the time, so I shall refer to it as RISSP!

This is a small card (12.5cm square) from my play session using Adirondack Wild Plum and Pesto dye inkpads with stamps from Eastern Grasses.  I stamped with the two colours, then added some random sponging using the same colours and after trimming and rounding the corners, I edged it with the Pesto ink.

The backing paper is from the Meadow Lark Prima paper pad and I used a spellbinders fancy die to cut the mat from white pearlescent card.  I added tiny lilac pearls around the die cut and larger ones on the pink ribbon.  I’m not normally an obsessive type, but I am fussy about pearls and gems.  These are the type that come as strips, where the line of pearls is mounted onto a clear adhesive strip.  I always cut them up and snip any bits of the adhesive strip off that are showing as I really don’t like that showing on the card.

I can see the RISSP being useful for creating a quick stamped card when you’re in a hurry.  The sentiment has come out very clear, so I can see how it would be very useful just for that.  I have a box with stamped sentiments in, ready for die cutting or trimming.  In general they tend to be in neutral colours (Brilliance Lightning Black is one of my favourites for sentiments), but sometimes I like the sentiment to be a bolder colour.

The next experiment will be with Versamark to see if it gives a good resist.  Watch this space!

  1. That’s gorgeous Glenda. The papers and colours are really lovely, and that spellbinder’s die cut edge looks wonderful.

    It’s always good to know what inks work well with particular papers, that’s really helpful. Thank you.

  2. Oh I sat & smiled – if you’ve ever seen me cutting the bits of adhesive off the pearls & gems & ping – said gem/pearl pings off into some nook of no mans land in my craft room………….days/weeks/months later a gem/pearl appears in the bath….. I still cannot work it out! I love the way you matched the inks with the paper & the ribbon with those pearls & the die-cut just work a treat.

  3. This is so pretty and I’m with you on those bits of sticky around tiny gems and pearls!! What a pain it is trimming them off though.

  4. Love the card Glenda and some of my favourite colours . I smiled about trimming the glue strip as it is exactly what I do and as Paula said often they ping off never to be seen again.
