Tangled Chilli Pepper Card - Rubber Dance Design Team Tutorial

Hi everyone

Brrrrr!!!!  Well I think we are definitely moving into autumn here in the UK but as I am hoping for a bit more sun I am posting a card tutorial that will remind us of sunshine and fiestas!

As you know this month I have been featuring card designs using the Hot, Hot, Hot stamp set from rubberdance.com and this is my forth card.  I really had fun using these stamps and there are so many of them of the stamp sheet I know I could carry on designing with them over and over again!!!  But I have a couple of new sets to introduce you to in September so I am excited to get them inky…..and probably me too of course!

For this card design I got out my black pen and pro markers and started tangling on my chilli peppers!

On the tutorial you will see how I made the background by blending 4 colours of Distress Ink and then using all the lovely chilli phrases that come with this stamp set as well as how to create this fun set of tangled chilli peppers.  I was just thinking that you could scale this down a little bit and it would make a fun invitation to a summer party or bbq!

Here is how I used the same background technique to make a matching inner all ready to stamp with the greeting once I know who is Cool or Hot enough to receive this card!!!!

Cutting Guide:

Black Card Base: 8" square scored at 4" or 20.5 cm square scored at 10.25 cm
White Card (cut 2): 7 3/4" x 3 3/4" or 9.5 cm x 19.75 cm
White Squares (Cut 4): 1 5/8" squares or 4 cm squares
Black Squares (Cut 4): 1 3/4" squares or 4.5cm squares

Check out the tutorial even if you don't have these lovely stamps……Yet!  There are lots of ideas and hints and tips I know you will find useful.

Stamps used for this card:
