Painted Blooms Kindness

2015_05_20IMG_7118I am finally getting around to using the beautiful Painted Blooms DSP #137784 from the Stampin Up Occasions catalog.  I paired the DSP with the Stampin Up Lotus Blossom (retired) and matched the colors of the tulips in the DSP.  For the sentiment, I cut a banner using the Party Pennants Die #133732 and finished with a piece of Blackberry Bliss 3/8″ Satin Stitched Ribbon #133668.

Be sure to check out the Stampin Up Retirement List for the Party Pennnants Die and Accessories and Stamps.  Some of the retired items are deeply discounted but they won’t be around for long so stock up now!

2015_05_20MG_7120 As a bonus, I used the same layout and swapped out the painted bloom DSP for a piece of Irresistibly Yours DSP that was available during sale-a-bration and will be brought back in the 2015-2016 catalog with a new name and different patterns.  This paper is fabulous because you can color it using brayering, sponging, spritzing, or any other technique and the embossed pattern will pop up.  For the sentiment on this card, I used the hello thinlits #137363 and the coordinating Crazy About You Photopolymer stamp set #137137.  Rather than using ribbon I used Washi Tape and bakers twine to complete the look.
