UNDEFINED Stamp Carving - Retro Cassette Tape Goes Ombre!

I'm back at it again, playing with one the stamps I hand carved with the new UNDEFINED kit from Stampin' Up!  This little retro cassette tape is seeing LOTS of ink, I just love it!

To make these cards I started by stamping the cassette tape in three colours on each card base, creating an ombre effect:

I created four different ombre combos:
Pistachio Pudding, Wild Wasabi, Gumball Green

Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Tangerine Tango

So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry

Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay

After I'd done my background stamping it was super easy to add this fun sentiment from the Bombs Away Birthday photopolymer stamp set.  So sarcastic and fun!
Today is the LAST DAY to sign up for my UNDEFINED Stamp Carving Class!  You really don't want to miss it, so contact me ASAP to register.  More class details HERE.  It's going to be a blast!  

Happy Stampin'


  1. Alison, your cassette tape stamp is just marvelous! Plus, I love the ombre technique that you've used with it -- and of course the sentiment stamp, too! And the funny thing is -- that I DID grow up on these tapes (LOL!)

    Blessings, Chris in Calgary

  2. Me too Chris!!! I remember taping songs of the radio and making mixed tapes for my friends! Ah, the good ol days!

    Thank you so much for your kind comments on my hand carved stamp and card too. :)

  3. love this! at first I was thinking you did the stamp off technique, then realized the different colour inks...great idea! Are those sentiments from a set? perfect!
