Sampling The Watercolor Trio Set
One of my favorite new sets from the Summer Mini is Watercolor Trio. I love the soft, leafy images and they layer so beautifully to create lovely fields of flowers! The set also comes with matching greetings in a pretty script and serif combination.
I'm really going to miss this color combo: Lovely Lilac, Apricot Appeal and Mellow
Moss. They will all be gone soon. *sniff* This whole month, I'll be featuring many of the soon-to-be retiring colors, so
you'll have a chance to see them in action one last time before they go. Well, that and
because I need to use all my retiring card stock up! *wink* Which reminds me…I must interrupt this card description with an important announcement…
Order Your Retiring Colors NOW
I've said it before and I'll continue to say it—order retiring colors products NOW! Check the Fond Farewell List and see what you want TODAY. Stampin' Up! has guaranteed that they will ship these retired items (card stock, ink, markers, and coordinating ribbon, paper, refill inks, buttons, etc.) through May 31, but after that…the dreaded "while supplies last" goes into effect. You don't want to be stuck without extra card stock and refill inks on your favorite colors!
And, now back to our regular programming…
Watercolor Trio Card Details: The background is embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder (still available!). The Apricot piece is wheeled with the Baroque Border in Apricot Appeal ink. Scallop Edge Border Punch and Apricot 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon finish off the background.
For the focal piece, I've stamped the stalk of leaves multiple times in Mellow Moss (the lighter images are stamped off one or two times; I didn't re-ink after each time). Then, I used Lovely Lilac and Apricot Appeal Markers to color only the flower images of another stamp in the set to add blossoms to my "field." The greetings stamps were colored with Lovely Lilac and Mellow Moss Markers, stamped, then punched with the Large Oval, and layered on the Scallop Oval. Both the focal piece and greeting are popped up with Dimensionals.
Can't wait to show you more new Summer Mini stuff! Stay tuned…
