When my order of new Stampin’ Blends arrived, I immediately organized them into my Stampin’ Blends marker holder – I ordered them by the rainbow of colors. What a lovely site! I’ve made a sweet and simple card today that I’m excited to share. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- New Products. I was inspired to make this card when my new Stampin’ Blends arrived – I used both Poppy Parade and Pineapple Punch to color the images on the card. If you haven’t ordered your new Stampion’ Blends, now’s the time. Here’s a look at the new colors that are available now: If you’d like to see all of the Stampin’ Blends colors, CLICK HERE. My card also features two new stamp sets – Calligraphy Elements coordinates with the Calligraphy Essentials Project Kit: The balloon that graces my sentiment is stamped and cropped with the Blow Out the Candles bundle:
- CASE’ing Me. If you visit my blog every day (and why wouldn’t you?!), then you might think that hanging a balloon on the word “celebrate” seems familiar to you. That’s because I CASE’d myself. One of my most popular cards in 2016 was this card for an InKing Royalty Blog Hop (you can click on the picture to read the original post):I didn’t use the same colors on sentiment, but the overall concept of the card is similar. I also added a fun sentiment below my “celebrate” to further resolve my request that you celebrate. While I’m bossing you around and demanding that you celebrate, I also want you to “eat cake and enjoy your day” (from the Blow Out Your Candles stamp set:
- Bright Color Combination. I was talking with a friend this week, and the conversation turned to our favorite color collection (as most discussions often do). I have so many favorite colors, but I don’t think of myself as a “bright colors” guy. When I look back on my cards, though, I’m REALLY happy to use them. Birthday cards are always great with Brights, right? When making a card that features a birthday balloon AND two of the new Stampin’ Blends, Poppy Parade and Pineapple Punch made perfect sense. If you like this combination of Pineapple Punch, Poppy Parade and Bermuda Bay, please save this:
