Say goodbye to Stampin’ Up!’s Blended Bloom

Blended Bloom Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up! is still available

Blended Bloom was one of my favourite stamps from the current Stampin’ Up! catalogue.  It was originally brought out with Blendabilities.  When Blendabilities retired, I expected that this stamp would retire as well – but it didn’t.  So I found new ways to utilise this stamp set.  I have water-coloured this stamp so many times.  But on this occasion I thought I would showcase something different.

The stamp set is now retiring and is still available (when I last checked) for under $17.

So how did I create this Crushed Curry card?

I white heat-embossed the card with the Blended Bloom image.  I then used the Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker and quickly drew on the outside of the embossed lines.   The sentiment is from the also retiring Sassy Salutations.  It is one of the first stamps I ever purchased.  It has got a lot of use because of the six fabulous sentiments.

Watermelon Wonder Blended Bloom

So how did I create this Watermelon Wonder card?

I stamped the image in Basic Black Archival ink onto Watermelon Wonder cardstock.  The image was then fancy cut and then adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.    The card base is Very Vanilla.  The diagonally striped paper, Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper, is also retiring.  The banner was created using the Triple Banner Punch.  I decorated the inside of the card simply as well.

The centre of the flower was created using the 7/8 inch scallop punch (also retiring), cutting down (1/4 inch) through the scallops to create a flower shape.  Adhere Watermelon Wonder In-Color Blossom Accents with a Glue Dot.  Add a

I am regularly taking photos of my creations.  But I am also the owner of two fur babies.  Now I usually feature Oscar as he is always popping up as the centre of attention.  But on this occasion, Tiger decided to get into the action and be super cute.  That is my card Tiger is laying on!  More photos featured on my Facebook. page.  If you have yet to like my Facebook page, now is the opportunity.
