I love hydrangeas and was so excited when I purchased the Because I Care stamp set when it was first available. Then a smaller version of the hydrangea became available last year as part of the Best of Flowers stamp set. I used these flowers to play with the new Blendabilities. The Blendabilities were purchased as part of the demonstrator pre-order (a perk of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator!) this month before the catalog is made available to the general public. I used the Old Olive, Coastal Cabana and Rich Razzleberry blendability ink colors to color the images (be sure to use the Memento Ink Pad when stamping the main image to prevent smearing). Blackberry Bliss cardstock frames the stamped image. The new Moonlight DSP Stack provides the base behind the image. I LOVE the 3/8″ stitched satin ribbon… it has a richness that will surprise you!
This card is being sent to a very special friend who is facing unexpected challenges. The message inside the card says “You’ve got Courage, You’ve got Strength”! This is a sentiment that can be used in so many ways! You will find it in the Something to Say stamp set.
Additional close up views…
I personally think that you will find the Blendabilities absolutely amazing! Don’t be afraid to use the Color Lifter to accentuate your image… it will “lighten” the color as desired.
Until next time…
Have fun stamping,
