The challenge this month is to use one of our favorite sets from the past in conjunction with new and current Stampin' Up! Products to create something all new. Hmmmm. . . this was very challenging for me because I have TONS of retired sets that I absolutely love and picking just one was very difficult! But, I finally found a way to make the decision easy. . .
I LOVE the new blendabilities, and thought this image presented a perfect opportunity to use them! Because these are alcohol based markers, it made blending the lightest of the Soft Sky and the lightest of the Rich Razzleberry (though I am thinking perhaps I should have used the Wisteria Wonder) super easy to create the look of a hydrangea. Check out this card:
Not a fan of all the junk and layers? Like a more trendy, modern, clean and simple card? Don't write this set of just yet! Use some bright colors paired with black and white space and you change the look of the set completely! For this super quick note card, I simply stamped the splatter image from the Gorgeous Grunge set in three different colors, and then stamped to flower over them in black. Easy peasy!
this post and this post for cards from the past!
That's it for me folks! Now, let's head In The Cat Cave and see what Cathy's fav set is, shall we?!
