WOW! Video + Au Revoir Orchid Oasis & Hills of Tuscany

Create this sympathy card with the Hills of Tuscany Stamp Set and Orchid Oasis In Color - Mary Fish, Stampin Pretty

It’s amazing how much one color (Orchid Oasis) can create a range of colors by simply inking up and stamping off on grid paper to lighten and soften its intensity. I was so excited to use this technique with the Stampin’ Up! Hills of Tuscany stamp set (retiring).

WHAT I LOVE! The Stampin’ Up! Deckled Rectangles Dies are one of my most popular die collections and one of My Favorite Things because of their nesting abilities and range of sizes. They are exclusively available in the on-line store.

How did I make the “custom” Deckled Rectangle size for the sentiment? Watch my latest 1 Minute to WOW! Video for a demonstration!

Use Clear Blocks to stamp the following images in different “strengths” of Orchid Oasis Classic ink by stamping off on Grid Paper.

  • Sky – stamped off 3 times
  • Top part of hill – stamped off 2 times
  • Bottom part of hill – stamped off 1 time
  • Trees & texture – full strength (not stamped off)

Adhere to the card as shown with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard or Mini) to crop the Orchid Oasis card stock layer by tucking the 1 3/4 x 3 Deckled Rectangle die inside the 2 1/2 x 4 Deckled Rectangle die. TIP: Secure in place with Post-It Tape before die-cutting.

Use a Mini Misti to stamp the sentiment (Hills of Tuscany) in Orchid Oasis Classic Ink onto the Basic White layer. Watch my 1 Minute to WOW video: The Magic of the Mini MISTI for a quick demonstration here.

Crop twice with a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard or Mini) and the smallest Deckled Rectangle die. See my 1 Minute to WOW video on How to “Resize” Rectangle Dies here. Finished resize is 2 3/8 x 5/8.

Tie a bow of white Baker’s Twine Essentials. Adhere as shown with a Mini Glue Dot.

Adhere the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

POP OF PERSONALITY! Embellish with three Orchid Oasis 2022-2024 In Color Pearls.

PERFECT POLISH! Adhere the 5 3/4 x 2 1/4 Designer Series Paper to the Basic White Medium envelope flap with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. IMPORTANT: Add glue to the flap first, not the Designer Series Paper. Center and line up the Basic Borders curved edge die, tape to secure (Post-It Tape) and crop with a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard). Watch my Stampin’ Pretty WOW Video here.
