Hello Stampers! Hope this post finds you all well and enjoying good weather (finally for some of you!). I have been looking at my stamp set “Mediterranean Moments” for quite a while and finally decided to sit down and DO something with it.
I stamped the scene and then used my Stampin’ Blends to color. Oh my…those Stampin’ Blends are AWESOME! Once I finished I could see that this was the perfect card front. I wanted to use up some of my retired colors so I went with a Chocolate Chip card base. Luckily Old Olive is still current so I used it for a second layer then rounded the corners of the scene, added a touch of Old Olive Ribbon and it was complete.
I love the way it came out. I don’t usually use dark colors for my card bases but it just seems to fit here. I also put another piece of Whisper White on the inside with rounded corners.
This will make a great note card. I plan to make sets of these in different colors and give as small gifts.
Stampin’ Up! Products Used:
Stamp Set – Mediterranean Moments
Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black, Stampin’ Blends
Paper – Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Old Olive
Accessories – Corner Rounder, Old Olive Ribbon
You really should take a look at this stamp set – especially if you enjoy the water color look. I can’t recommend the Stampin’ Blends enough. It makes the coloring so easy and yet so impressive. The technique with Stampin’ Blends is so relaxing.
Hope you enjoyed seeing my latest creation. I’m trying to take more time to just “play” around rather than always producing card ideas for my classes.
I’m thinking about doing a class with those who already have Stampin’ Blends. We could all work on the technique! For those of you who are close enough to attend a class like this…let me know what you think. Would you be interested?
Until my next post…Happy Stamping! Donna
