Stampin’ Blends Challenge
Welcome to a new Friday Stamp Off with Susan, Jackie, and me. This is one of my favorites, because we’re using Stampin’ Blends.
I decided to take a break from holiday cards and use Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog products for my card.
The Beautiful You Stamp Set has long been one of my favorite stamp sets. I won it in a “Prize Patrol” at a Stampin’ Up!® event the year it came out, and I still love it.
I stamped the umbrella lady in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, then colored with Crumb Cake, Petal Pink, Mint Macaron, and Rococo Rose Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends. After die-cutting with the Stitched Shapes Dies, I sponged a little Rococo Rose Classic Ink on the edge of the diecut.
The background layers are two designs of the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper. I layered them to a Crumb Cake card base, then adhered some Rococo Rose 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon over the “seam.” The sentiment from the Abstract Impressions Stamp Set is stamped in Early Espresso Classic Ink.
As much as I love coloring, I realized with this challenge that I’m running low on line-art stamp images. Oh, the horror!! I’m going to need to re-evaluate my future purchases, because I love to watercolor and use my Stampin’ Blends to color images.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
