Accented Blooms

08.28.18 Accented Blooms helloAccented Blooms is a pretty stamp set with lots of uses.  It sells for $20 which I feel is quite reasonable.  Because the flowers are colored with the Stampin’ Blends, you can choose to have your mini garden in shades of the same color, in pastels, fall, spring or even Christmas colors.  My 100 year-old mother has even colored this image.  Daughter Debbie designed this Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather card.  She stamped the image on Whisper White cs and cut it out with the Scan’n’Cut. She also saved the shape to the machine’s database so that a black matching can be cut allowing for the artwork to have a shadow.  The colored artwork is mounted to the black outline and adhered to the Highland Heather card front with dimensionals.  The Highland Heather layer has been embossed with the new, absolutely amazing Subtle embossing folder which gives a subtle, linen-like finish.  Debbie added a “hello” sentiment in Gorgeous Grape and punched it out with the Tailored Tag Punch before adhering it to the open sentiment space on the image.   08.28.18 Accented Blooms TY

The second sample uses the “thank you” sentiment and different colors on the flowers.  Our ribbon archives produced a retired dotted ribbon that goes perfectly with the card.

Although hard to see, the first sample has colored rhinestones in the center of a few flowers.  The second sample has colored pearls in the flower centers.  Did you know you can color Stampin’Up rhinestones and pearls with Sharpie Permanent Markers.  You’re rhinestones and pearls can be any color you wish. 

As a reminder, August Stamp Camp is Thursday August 2nd from 1-7 pm, Friday August 3rd from 2-7 pm and Saturday August 4th from 9 am – 4 pm.  Mark you calendars now for September Stamp Camp – Fall will be the theme.  Dates/times for September:  Thursday Sept 6 from 1-7 pm, Friday Sept 7 from 2-7 pm, and Saturday Sept 8 from 9 am to 4 pm.  We will continue doing 1 Christmas card at each monthly stamp camp.
