Soft Suede struts its stuff on day two of my Parade of In Colors.
"Gentle and smooth, this subdued yet on-trend neutral is comfortable with almost every other color. Try it out with your favorites and see which combinations you like best".
~ Quote taken from the July 2009 Stampin' Success
Today's card shows off the heat embossing technique.
To allow the Soft Suede paper to take the spotlight, I dipped my Sweet Stems and Dreams du Jour (butterfly) stamps into some Versamark ink. Before the ink dried, I covered the images with clear embossing power, and finally heat set the powder to it's shiny finish.
The card base is also Soft Suede and tied around it is some luscious 1/2" polka-dot grosgrain ribbon (available July 1).
Below is the color comparison for Soft Suede. You may notice a hint of green in the paper and ink. To show just how different the colors are, I also stamped an Always Artichoke image on the far right.
This color swatch is the perfect way to show how versatile this new In Color neutral can be. It also allows you to compare Soft Suede to similar/current Stampin' Up! colors.
