Summer is fast approaching and with it the changing of our catalogs. The last day to order from both the 2018 – 2019 Annual Catalog and the 2019 Occasions Catalog is June 3rd. We’ve already seen some of our favorites from these catalogs sell out but there is still time to discover some retiring gems like the All That You Are stamp set. The beautiful All That You Are stamp set is located on the back of the front cover of the 2019 Occasions Catalog. With gorgeous images perfect for your favorite coloring medium – water-coloring, colored pencils, or Stampin’ Blends – the retiring All That You Are stamp set would be a lovely addition to your collection. Plus two of the flower images coordinate with the Frosted Bouquet dies (which will be available in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog).
Start with a Berry Burst cs card base. Cut a Very Vanilla cs panel and glue it to the card base. Cut a Tranquil Tide cs panel. Stamp the background texture image from the retiring Timeless Textures stamp set in Tranquil Tide ink on the Tranquil Tide cs panel. I stamped randomly and three times (2nd & 3rd generation) before reinking.
Cut a Vellum cs panel. Cut the Very Vanilla cs sentiment banner layer and stamp the sentiment from the All That You Are stamp set in Berry Burst ink. Use Paper Snips to flag the end of the sentiment banner and then glue it to the Vellum cs panel. To adhere the vellum panel to the card front add glue to the back of the Vellum cs panel behind the sentiment banner and on the left side where the glue will be hidden by the flowers.
Stamp the flower image 5 times (3-front, 1- inside, 1- back) in Memento Black on Watercolor paper. Use the Aqua Painter to add a light amount of water to the image. Add a drop of Berry Burst reinker to either the lid of the Berry Burst pad or on a clear block to use as a palette. Use the Aqua Painter to color the flower images with the Berry Burst ink. After the flowers are dry (air or heat tool) cut the flowers out with the Frosted Bouquet dies. Add Wink of Stella to the flower centers for sparkle.
Cut out sprigs from the Very Vanilla cs scrap and leaves from the Tranquil Tide cs scrap with the Frosted Bouquet dies. Arrange and glue down the sprigs and leaves on the left side of the card front across the Vellum cs panel. Use glue dots to add the flowers on top of the sprigs and leaves.
Add large Frosted Epoxy Droplets to the card front. Don’t forget to add a Very Vanilla cs panel to the inside of the card to write your message. I also glued a colored and die cut flower to the inside panel and back of the card to pull the theme through.
You can find the supplies I used to make this lovely card including the retiring All That You Are stamp set, retiring Timeless Textures stamp set, and the retiring 2017 – 2019 In Colors – Berry Burst & Tranquil Tide in my Online Store now. Don’t wait as retiring products are going fast. The Frosted Bouquet dies will be available again June 4th when the new catalog goes live.
