Mixed & Crisp Thank You!


 Welcome to this brand new week, stampy friends!  

Today I'm sharing a card I made for the Splitcoaststampers inspiration challenge, IC490.  Inspiration was taken from a pinterest board that features stamps ... but the pins are of 'postage' stamps.  I actually found a slight few that I have in my studio!  Since I do not have Disney-themed rubber stamps in the stampin' zone ... I had to go with florals.  Thus, I chose a retiring floral set that I'm definitely going to miss ... Mixed Bunch.


Coloring just wasn't of interest to me this day, so I opted for a stamp set that would 'do the coloring' for me.  To create some depth & contrast, the first layer of my dimensional blossom was stamped with Calypso Coral.  It's a wonderful companion to the retiring Crisp Cantaloupe.  Alas, the coordinating Blossom Punch is retiring as well.  Since all petals are the same, it's a super-easy punch to line up correctly every time.   The center of the blossom was stamped with Crushed Curry and punched with the 7/8" Scalloped Punch.  The same flower-center stamp was stamped several times on the card base ... I love it when images from a stamp set nicely double as backgrounding!


Every die on this card is retiring!  The On Film framelits are on the list, as well as the Bitty Banners framelits that so perfectly coordinate with the retiring Itty Bitty Banners stamp set.  I just might have to keep those, as the small size can be "juuuuust right" at times!

If you have favorite designer series papers ... scoop them up now, as they are retiring.  My leaves are from Confetti Celebration dsp and the framed dsp is from the Sweet Dreams collection.

 Special Reminder:  the Stampin' Up! Retirement sale includes savings of up to 50% off!
