As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator one of the perks is getting to order from new catalogues before anyone else. With the launch of the latest Spring/Summer catalogue, demonstrators got to order all the new goodies during December. Which I of course took full advantage of! but there are always stamps that we skip over the the catalogue. This time around it was Indescribable Gift, a great stamp set designed for Easter cards, but I totally didn’t see it! That was until it started to pop up in my Pinterest feed!
Wow, this set if gorgeous! and works wonderfully with the latest release of Blendabilities.
I love colouring with my Blendabilities, but I wasn’t feeling like an afternoon of playing with my alcohol markers when I made this card. Saying that, I did stamp it in Momento Black Ink, more because it’s a great black ink than its compatibility with alcohol markers. I’d stamped it once (for the very first time actually) and it hit me again how beautiful it is all over again! and made the decision to fill the cardstock with it – making my own Designer Series Paper!
I trimmed the piece to 1cm shorter and narrower than my card base, and cut a matt of Basic Black cardstock to 0.5 cm shorter and narrower than my card base.
Then I set off to find a sentiment! I have to say Painted Petals contains my favourite sentiments of the moment, I adore the mix of fonts. You Are Amazingly Amazing fits perfectly into the Extra-Large Oval punch. Stamped in Lost Lagoon, and edges sponged.
I did consider adding some bling, but I decided not too this time (I know, its shocking!) to let that beautiful floral print do all the talking!
