We’re back with another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop for you today. I used Birthday Blooms, from Stampin’ Up!, to create my card to share with you.
We have a color challenge this week, and Mint Macaron has truly been a wonderful color the last two years! Make sure you order anything from the 2015-2017 In-Color Collection soon because they retire June 1st. Those items will vanish fast!
I’m also playing along with the Coming Up Flowers Challenge #93 At Stamp Ink Paper this week.
I started with a panel of Watercolor Paper and the Birthday Blooms stamp set. The large flower image was stamped in Versa Mark ink, and heat embossed using White Emboss Powder. Then, I began to color in the flowers with my Watercolor Pen and Calypso Coral ink. Once it was dry, I came back in and water colored Mint Macaron on all of the leaf images. Finally, I colored in the center of the bloom with more water coloring in Daffodil Delight. The Mint Macaron dotted images are also from Birthday Blooms, and were added last.
I used the sentiment from Jar of Love, and the Banners Framelits Dies for my banner cut outs. The Calypso Coral Thick Baker’s Twine is really White Baker’s Twine that I dyed using vinegar and my Calypso Coral re-inker. It was my first time trying this technique. Luckily, I realized in enough time that I was out of the Calypso Coral twine, and dyed some ahead of when I needed it, so it had time to dry! I’m happy with the results, and will try this again with other colors.
For the inside, I chose a sentiment from Floral Phrases and stamped it in Mint Macaron. My small flower is from Birthday Blooms and was stamped in Calypso Coral.
A complete list of Stampin’ Up! supplies needed to complete this project, as well as card stock cuts in inches will be at the end of my post.
Now, you can continue the hop to see what Kristi has created for us today.

What’s inside a monthly Paper Pumpkin box?
With Paper Pumpkin, you’ll save time and money while you build a collection of crafting supplies. Every month you’ll receive a unique stamp set with an ink spot (that won’t repeat a color in a 12-month period). In no time at all, you’ll have a variety of stamps and ink to use on other projects. In addition, your first kit includes a free clear stamping block that you’ll use every month.
Now is the time to get serious about this retiring collection of Stampin’ Up! Products. We are nearing the end of the year for these colors, in fact, this weekend, Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators will find out the new 2017-2019 In Colors at the On Stage Event! We even get our hands on the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog! Yippee! I am so excited to be headed to Savannah tomorrow to meet with my team members and other demonstrators for a fun weekend. On April 10th, I will be sharing the retiring list from the annual catalog with you. So, that means the count down is on for you to seriously order what you want before it is gone! Don’t wait, these In-Color products are already disappearing.
