Stampin’ Up! Blended Bloom In Island Indigo

I used the Stampin’ Up! stamp sets called Blended Bloom and Butterfly Basics to create my card to share today.  Apparently I’ve been in a blue flower mood lately, I think that this is my 3rd card with blue flowers this week!

Blended Bloom - Stamp With Amy K

My card design was inspired by Fab Friday 62.

Screen Shot 2015-04-24 at 2.26.35 PMFor some reason, my camera makes the Island Indigo on this card look more like Pacific Point, but I did use Island Indigo inks and papers.  I started by adhering a panel of Island Indigo DSP from the Regals DSP Stacks to a panel of Whisper White card stock with SNAIL, then to an Island Indigo card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Blended Bloom 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the image from the Blended Bloom stamp in Island Indigo ink on a panel of Island Indigo card stock.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Basics stamp set in VersaMark Ink, sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.

Painted Petals - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Whisper White card stock with SNAIL, then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut a little banner from the All A Bloom DSP Stack with my Paper Snips and I tucked it under the focal image, adhering it with SNAIL.

Painted Petals 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I made a little loop with Whisper White 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon and I added just a touch of SNAIL to hold it together.  I pulled a strand of Linen Thread through an Island Indigo button from the Regals Designer Buttons Pack, wrapped it around the Whisper White ribbon, then pulled it back through the other side of the button and I tied a little bow.  I adhered the ribbon/button to the card front with a Glue Dot.

Blended Bloom 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the Blended Bloom image in Island Indigo ink on a Whisper White panel inside the card.

  1. Never thought about using one color. You have really made a statement, it is beautiful. Thanks for the inspiration.

    • I caught that right after I published my post this morning…sorry about that. If you go check the post itself, I’ve updated it with the correct stamp set (Butterfly Basics). Yikes, I think that I needed a little more coffee this morning. 😉

  2. I agree with Terri, what a awesome color choice Amy 🙂 It’s strong and yet very soothing with your Sending You Wishes sentiment. The several ways you brought in white really balances all of the darker Island Indigo. I really love this card, your main panel reminds me of a art piece with the Blended Bloom floating around 😉 This is another must make card for me!! Amy, you are giving me soooo many ideas 😀

  3. Amy this is so pretty!! I too often forget about this color! I’d love to win once at fab Friday, but you may have just stolen the show! Just beautiful!

  4. Amy, what a sweet sweet card – I love your attention to detail on the inside as well – this came together perfectly. Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!

  5. Oh a great idea to go monochromatic! It works perfect with this sketch! Thanks fro playing at Fab Fri!
