Todays card is from the new 2020 Mini Catalogue that opens for ordering Jan – Jun. The stamp set is called Breathtaking Bouquet Background Stamp Set. I used it in my Stamparatus with Versamark and then embossed with white embossing powder on Seaside Spray. I really like the softness of this color! The really fun part happened next as I began coloring the image with various Stampin’ Up! Blends. It takes a bit of time but somehow it’s soothing to me. Here are the Blends I have used for the flowers: Light and Dark So Saffron, Light and Dark Purple Posy (love this color too!), Light and Dark Flirty Flamingo, Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie,Light and Dark Blackberry Bliss. For the leaves I used Light and Dark Granny Apple Green plus Light and Dark Old Olive. The ribbons used to simply wrap the card were Whisper White Flax ribbon and the Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic ribbon from the Holiday catalogue. For the inside I used the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp set for the sentiment (using Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends) and the dragonflies from the Friend Like You stamp set using Seaside Spray ink pad.
Here are the deets for the card:
* 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Seaside Spray CS, scored at 4 1/4″
* Seaside Spray Layer 4 x 5 1/4″ (front)
* Whisper White 4 X 5 1/4″ (inside)
Please notice the envelope – stamped in dragonflies as though they are circling the card!
Cut your card stock for the stamping Breathtaking Bouquet, larger than 4 x 5 1/4 as the stamp set is large and you want it to stamp all the way to the edge. After stamping and embossing, pare down to appropriate size :o)
Here’s the card!
And the inside with the envelope.
Hope you enjoyed this sneak peek of a very pretty stamp.
