Flourishing Hello

MISTI Flourishing Hello

This is the last card I made for this month’s MISTI challenge at Split Coast Stampers. I learned from Sandy Allnock that Blueprint Sketch fit the Pantone Classic Blue color of the year, and I finally purchased a pad this week. Today I was able to ink blend with it.

The stamp set used is Flowering Flourishes by Stampin Up, released in 2012. I know my Mom used this set a lot, as I remember seeing it on several cards. This was my first time inking it up. I used Versamark and white embossing powder, then began ink blending. I spritzed a bit of water after finishing ink blending and made those water droplets. I think this could get addictive.

The Hello was die cut in fun foam for dimension, white cardstock, then GKD Blue Denim cardstock. I layered the pieces to look like a shadow image. I added a few gems from Studio Katia.

I enjoyed making this card. It has been an enjoyable month seeing the blue all over and knowing that was the color of the year. I see that blue in my dishes, on product boxes, and fabric.

I am entering this card in Simon Says Stamp: https://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/wednesdaychallenge/simon-says-anything-goes-69/

Thanks for looking!

    1. Thanks! I haven’t ink blended or used emboss resist in a long time. I forgot how easy it was to make a card with these techniques.

  1. Lovely. I like the flourishes with the blue. Great idea to use fun foam behind the die cut sentiment instead of cutting it several times for dimension.
