SSINKspiration Springtime Fun: Amazing You

Good morning!  Despite winter coming for a final performance this week on the second day of spring there are signs that spring really is just around the corning.  Today the SSINKspiration designers are using these signs of spring as inspiration for today's cards.  I decided to use a little color therepy with the Stampin' Blends and the Springtime Foil Speciality Designer Series Paper (a SAB Freebie) to make this beautiful card that screams springtime flowers.

I started with Olive Olive cardstock for the cardbase and then used my Pool Party, Old Olive, Calypso Coral, and Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends to color in the Springtime Foil Speciality DSP (this paper is great for using with the Blends since it's got a coating so the ink really stays wet longer to allow you to move it really easy to get the look your going for.  I really took my time and enjoyed color the background (it did take some time but I was able to watch a show and just relax).

Next I took a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock and used the Amazing You stamp set (a SAB Freebie) to stamp the "Let's" and the starburst image using Calypso Coral ink at different strengths.  Next I used the Big Shot and Celebrate You Thinlits (a SAB Freebie that will be carrying over to next years Annual Catalog) to cut the words out of Copper Foil Paper.  The final touch, a double bow tied with Pool Party Solid Baker's Twine.

I didn't add a lot to this card to really let the background be the star and love how it turned out.  I've colored several other pieces of this specialty DSP and will be sharing those projects soon so make sure you add this paper to your qualifying order before the end of the month and see the important note below regarding the Stampin' Blends.

The Stampin’ Blends Markers have been so incredibly popular that inventory has run out on many colors, and many more are close to being depleted. Because of the long lead time to have the markers made, Stampin’ Up! will be placing the Stampin’ Blends on ‘non-orderable’ status today Friday, March 23rd at 12noon(mountain).
So what does that mean for you? Well, if any of the Stampin’ Blends are on your shopping list, I urge you to order them before Friday at 12noon. Why should you order them if you likely won’t receive them for quite some time? Because if you order them now, not only can you take advantage of Sale-a-bration and earn free items with your purchase, but you’ll also have secured your order in the queue to have your Stampin’ Blends sent out as soon they are available again.

Below are easy ordering links for the product's used on today's card:
