My Product of the Week is the stamp set Blended Seasons.  Yesterday I shared another card using the flower stamp in the set and you can see it HERE.  Today’s card features Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends along with Dark Pineapple Punch for the inside of the flowers and Granny Apple Green for the leaves. 

I’ll let you in on a secret.  My card today was supposed to be just like the one from yesterday but colored in with Lovely Lipstick rather than Highland Heather. While coloring I messed up on one of the leaves so rather than scrap it (I couldn’t do that after the time I’d put into it), I made it work.  I cut off the offending leaf and fussy cut the rest out.  I cut the Lovely Lipstick rectangle in the middle to fit the size of the flowers and it forced me to come up with a different looking card! I wanted to cry when I made the mistake but I’m really happy with what came from it!

Here are the measurements for my card:

  • Lovely Lipstick:  5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″        4″ x 2-1/2″
  • Whisper White: 5-1/4″ x 4″ for inside of the card
  • White piece flowers are stamped on: 2-1/4″ x 3-3/4″

99% of the time I use only Stampin’ Up! supplies to make my projects.  I love our Whisper White and Thick Whisper White and for stamping, these two papers are excellent.  Normally when using Stampin’ Blends, I turn to Thick Whisper White and it works as expected.  When trying to color the flowers in today’s card, I found that the Memento ink kept bleeding so I switched to a non-Stampin’ Up! paper that’s heavier. In accordance with Stampin’ Up! policy, I cannot mention a competing product, here on my blog, but if you’d like to know what I used please feel free to email me.
