When looking for some direction last week on the internet for Stampin’ Up’s new Blendabilities, one design by Jan Tink (one SUPER talented demonstrator) kept catching my eye so many times that I knew without doubt that I had to attempt it myself.
It was using the new Blended Bloom Stamp not only for the coloring, but also for the background. Now THIS idea I particularly like and shall be using it again in future. Here’s my card.
It’s not evident from this photograph but the flower I colored with Coastal Cabana Blendabilities was actually cut and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A little of the Thick Baker’s Twine, like that from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Kit from the 2014 Sale-a-Bration but which is now available in the new Annual Catalog, a stamped banner and voila!
Oh, and the sheen you can see from my camera’s flash, is Crystal Effects (p.204). This product, although taking awhile to dry, does create this wonderful epoxy effect on your work.
If you don’t already have some in your stash, please call me so this omission can be immediately rectified. And if we are ordering the Crystal Effects for you we may as well take the opportunity to order some of the wonderful new products from the Annual Catalog. So please, let’s chat soon!
