Fun with Retiring Stampin' Up! In Colors

The color combination of Tranquil Tide, Powder Pink, and Berry Burst is so bright and fun, in an understated way.

My monthly Stamp Group meets this Wednesday and this is one of the three cards we'll be creating.  The group always loves making birthday cards and this color trio will be a hit, I know!  

I used the Perennial Birthdays stamp set.  This set has a great variety of birthday greetings for both the outsides and insides of cards and the images are just plain FUN.

There is a bit of fussy cutting with the main image.  I wanted it to stand out.

Tips and Tricks:
  • Use markers to color right on your stamp's rubber image, like I did for the flower that is the main image.  Gently "huff" on the stamp to rewet the ink just before pressing the stamp to your paper.
  • Immediately after stamping your image, use your blender pen to pull that ink throughout the image to color it.  This creates a soft look that I adore!
  • Don't have certain ink colors?  No problem!  Use a Versamark ink pad to stamp on your cardstock to create a subtle background, like I did on the Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide pieces.
