Beautiful Day Meets the Stampin’ Blends
With the arrival of the Stampin’ Blends and then the Beautiful Day Stamp Set, I knew the two together would create a gorgeous card. Once I started to make one, I decided EVERY color offered in the Stampin’ Blends had to be done. Beautiful Day Meets the Stampin’ Blends…
Picking a color:
Whenever I create, I often think ribbon. Almost every creation I make has ribbon added, as I often refer to it as the mascara to my card. Creating the above selection of cards, I grabbed the new Whisper White Organza Ribbon so ANY color would work.
I will say, I LOVE the Stampin’ Blends. I could not be any happier with them! Having the choice to order the combo or each shade individually is the perfect way to keep my collection fresh. The color lifter is a MUST! To get the dramatic shading seen above, the color lifter worked it’s magic. It pulls the color off perfectly, making for a great contrast between the light and dark shades. It is recommended to use our Memento Black Ink as well as our Thick Whisper White Card Stock when working with the Stampin’ Blends.
Fun with Friends:
In January, I traveled to Delaware for my annual crafting weekend with my Stampin’ Up! friends. It is NON-STOP crafting! My friend Amy captured this action shot of me. I laugh that my “glasses” are really helping me on my head! LOL
The golden rule when our crew is together, when we create a project we make 5, one for each of us. If I was making 5, making a few more was nothing but added fun! I loved seeing how each color came out. I did mainly use the Whisper White Organza Ribbon but on a few I switched it out to coordinate with the color blend. In the end, I made a quick video showing all the colors. Trust me, picking one color is too hard, just go for the whole Stampin’ Blends collection. It is well worth the investment!
