Usually when I color with the Stampin' Blends, I use Whisper White or Very Vanilla cardstock, but today, I'm coloring on Sahara Sand cardstock which gives it a more rustic feel. The wonderful thing about the Stampin' Blends is that the color shows up even on the slightly carker cardstock. When you first color the image, it looks very brown, but as the alcohol evaporates, the color begins to pop. It's so much fun to watch!
Last Friday, I shared cards using the Friend Like You stamp set with the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper. Today, I am using the same stamp set with the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper. Both of these sets of Designer Series Paper are beautiful! And did you know that the pieces I am using are part of the special sample pack of 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper available when you purchase the Stampin' Up! starter kit? This paper pack is an extra freebie during Sale-A-Bration along with an additional FREE stamp set of your choice and a mini guillotine paper cutter. All this in addition to your choice of $125 worth of product of your choice for only $99 and NO shipping fees! It is an amazing deal and there is no obligation to sell anything or place any future orders.
