Vibrant Peaceful Petals for Mom

I hope you had a wonderful Mothers Day! The weather here was absolutely beautiful and I was happy to spend it with my Mom & my sons...perfect day!

Have you seen the NEW batch of In Colors for 2014-16 yet? I think they are just gorgeous, rich & vibrant colors! Here is my first creation using them...along with the Blendabilities.

I stamped the flowers from the Peaceful Petals set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink while masking the largest flower with an image cut from a post it note. Then I had lots of fun coloring in the flowers with my new Blendies! I really like working with them! It's nice to even be able to color pearls & rhinestones to match! As you can see here, I've colored Basic Pearl Jewels in Razzleberry & Daffodil. Here's a closer look...
The rich colors achieved using the Blendies work really well with the new In Color card stock...I used Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey and Tangelo Twist and threw in some Cherry Cobbler for good measure. So, basically fruit with a bit of honey...and who doesn't like that!?

Isn't the new 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon luscious? It will be available in the five new In Colors...I used Blackberry Bliss.
I used each of the Blendability Color Sets shown above:

  • Rich Razzleberry
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Cherry Cobbler
  • Daffodil Delight
  • Old Olive
The label was created using the Creative Elements set along with the Apothecary Accents Framelits. I cut just the edge off...I shared how to do this on this post

Enjoy your day! We have a thunderstorm going on here right's pouring down rain. Guess I'll be "forced" to stay indoors and stamp instead of working outside cleaning up the flower bed today.

This card is gorgeous, Lynn. The flowers look real, and the colors are so vibrant. Are you sure regular people like me will be able to use these blendies to create beautiful flowers like yours? I can't wait to order some. And, yes, the new ribbon is luscious and the embellishments add a nice touch. I love this card. Great job!

Yummy! So rich in color and I'm ready for rich colors & textures, (funny now that's it's Spring) I think I'm a "Fall" color pallet myself. What a shame this stamp set does not carry over to the Annual Catalog because you've showcased Blendabillities so nicely with it today!
