It’s a Beautiful Day with Blueberry Bushel

Love What You Do Stamp Set - Mary Fish Stampin Up Card Ideas

I love the look of this simple, monochromatic card in Whisper White and Blueberry Bushel, one of the 2018-2020 Stampin’ Up! In Colors (available June 1).  See the five new In Color options and the key details for the Stampin’ Up! Color Revamp here.

My Stampin’ Pretty blog readers selected Blueberry Bushel as the favorite of the five new In Colors in last week’s poll.  Lovely Lipstick was a close second.

These are the final results.  The poll is now closed.

I used the Love What You Do Photopolymer Stamp Set (available June 1) for the pretty flower and sentiment.  Isn’t the font divine!  Customers will get the opportunity to pre-order the 2018-2020 In Color Ink Pads and Love What You Do product bundles May 1 – 31.  Learn about the Share What You Love bundle promotion (including FREE product offer) here.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Create a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base using Thick Whisper White card stock and the Stampin’ Trimmer.  The trimmer cuts and scores!

Adhere a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Blueberry Bushel card stock to the card base with Snail Adhesive.

Stamp flower trio and sentiment (Love What You Do Photopolymer Stamp Set) in Blueberry Bushel ink on Whisper White card stock.  I used a Stamparatus (available June 1) for perfect placement

There are two texture stamps that layer color on the flower blooms.  I stamped the larger of the two texture stamps off once on a piece of scrap paper before stamping in Blueberry Bushel.  This lightens the color.  I stamped the smaller of the two texture images in Blueberry Bushel in the center, without stamping off for more intensity.

Self-adhesive Pearl Basic Jewels add a pop of random personality.  Adhere stamped layer to card base with Snail Adhesive.

Adhere a Lemon Lime Twist pattern from Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper to the flap of a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  Remove excess with Paper Snips, using the underside of the flap as a template.

For a flirty and feminine spin on this card, substitute Powder Pink for Lemon Lime Twist.
