We are in the midst of the Stampin’ Up! transition to the new catalog with the Retiring Products List and two of the retiring products on the list are on this Blended Bloom Shimmery Thank You Card. The Retiring List is a list of products going away by May 31st (if not sooner) in order to make room for the exciting new products and stamp sets in the new Stampin’ Up! 2016-17 catalog coming out June 1, 2016.
This beautiful stamp, Blended Bloom Wood-Mount Stamp Set, is a single wood-mount stamp. If you are in to the adult coloring craze, this is a good stamp for coloring! You can stamp it as many times as you like without having to buy an expensive coloring book! This stamp is discounted by a few dollars on the Retiring List, so check it out!
I stamped this beautiful flower on Shimmery White Card Stock with Stazon Ink. Shimmery White paper holds up to watercoloring pretty well, better than Whisper White, although Watercolor Paper still is the best. But I love the shimmer on the Shimmery White Paper. I think you can see it a little bit in the photo above. I used my Aqua Painter and ink refills to color in the flower, then cut it out with Paper Snips.
The card base is Rich Razzleberry Card Stock (as is the main color of ink on the flower) with a Shimmery White layer. I wrapped a piece of White 1 1/4″ Jute Ribbon around the left side of the card using Fast Fuse to adhere the end and also to adhere it along the front of the card, but not all the way over to the right. Then I tied on some Linen Thread around the Jute and trimmed the end with my Craft Scissors (they are sold out!). Then I adhered the Blended Bloom flower using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The greeting is from the Tin of Cards Photopolymer Stamp Set. This stamp set is a great one to have, lots of great greetings plus a few little cutesy stamps that I have often used for just an extra little something on a project. I would also recommend you take a look at the Tin of Cards Project Kit because it is discounted right now and on the Retiring List! A great price and lots of crafting fun to make 16 cards!
Grab the Blended Bloom Stamp while you can and check out the other products used on the Blended Bloom Shimmery Thank You Card. Just change the greeting, of course, to make it a card for any occasion.
