SU Accented Blooms Round 2- Bring on the Blends

SU Accented Blooms Round 2- Bring on the Blends

Happy Day! I love a stamp set that inspires creativity and the new SU Accented Blooms definitely delivers. Simply stamped or colored- it looks great! I’m here to show you some of the possibilities this set offers… and how much fun you can have!

Monday’s project featured simple stamping with a fun peekaboo sentiment using the coordinating Tailored Tag punch (if you missed it, check it out HERE). Today’s card is totally different, although you could say the flowers play peekaboo, too!

Bring on the Stampin’ Blends markers for a quick pop of color on this new Coastal Cabana card base. Two stamps, a little coloring and a few passes through the Big Shot (or punch) is all it takes to make this card!

  • Stamp the main SU Accented Blooms stamp once with Memento Tuxedo Black ink centered on a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ panel of Whisper White cardstock . This is larger than you need, but you want to have space around it for the die cuts/punches. (Optional- stamp the envelope)
  • When dry, color with the Stampin’ Blends markers of choice
  • Using the smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits set, cut three sections from the stamp (being careful not to cut into the tag area). The 1-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch also works great! (I just didn’t think of it ’til I finished the card!) lol
  • Emboss the card base front with the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the Big Shot (to use the de-bossed side like I did, turn the folder upside down, with the front of the folder facing down)
  • Adhere the circles on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Stamp your sentiment of choice. This is from the ‘Enjoy Life’ set (yep, love it!)

Stampin’ Blends News

All the Stampin’ Blends markers used today are colors you can get now. After being on back-order for months, they’re (happily) in stock. There’s soon to be eleven new colors added (see them on Pg. 205 of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog), when they arrive at the Stampin’ Up! warehouse. Delivery’s been delayed, but, anticipated to be any time now.  Good news for a lot of people anxiously waiting- myself included. They make coloring such fun and blend like a dream.

  1. Love it!! Great idea!!

  2. Beautiful sentiment! Love the stitching detail!

    • That sentiment was inspired by another demonstrator named Connie as reward for achieving a milestone million dollars in career sales. It’s very personal to her and her family.So wonderful- I love it, too!:)

  3. I love the chance to throw in some color therapy! If you didn’t want to though, a stamped flower in a color without filling it in would be so pretty, too! The textured impressions embossing is a fantastic accent. I can think of a few variations I’d love to have in my supply. Thanks for sharing!

    • Brilliant idea- simple black and white is classic! A few basic tools do wonders for upping the wow on a card. So glad you liked it and shared your thoughts! 🙂
