Stampin’ Blends

March 26, 2018

I am a little late advising this but apparently you me and everyone else loves the Stampin’ Blends so much that the supplier has been unable to keep up with the orders.  Because supplies are limited and backorders are increasing, Stampin’ Up! has made the difficult decision to turn off the Stampin’ Blends until supplies can be guaranteed.  They are not going away and if you have them, then use them.  They will return.  I wasn’t going to share these cards with you because they all use Stampin’ Blends, but I decided that they were just too lovely not to share.  These are three more cards I created using up bits and pieces from last month’s classes.  Each card uses the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series papers and the Blossoming Basket stamp set.  I hope you have placed your order and secured this fantastic bundle because although the Basket Weave Embossing Folder will be carrying over to the new Annual Catalogue, the Blossoming Basket stamp set will not.  It will no longer be available after the end of March – so don’t miss out.  The first card uses Calypso Coral and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends, and the other two cards use Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends as well as Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends I have used Calypso Coral and Rich Razzleberry card bases and the two scalloped ovals were cut from Gold Foil.  For the cards with the ovals, I trimmed away the basket and just used the flowers to accent my greetings – “happy birthday” from the Rose Wonder stamp set and “sending wishes you way” from the Butterfly Basics stamp set.  The last card uses the full image.  For some extra dimension, I stamped, coloured and cut one additional large flower for each card which is attached with a dimensional.  To finish the cards I added Basic Pearls to the centres of all of the flowers.  The “for you” greeting is from the Thoughtful Branches stamp set (no longer available).  To decorate the inside of each of the cards, I stamped, coloured and cut out the three flowers and a few leaves and attached them to Whisper White card.

So while Stampin’ Blends are not available for purchase at this time, they are not going away.  I am sure that the problems will be fixed very soon and you will be able to order them once more.  Hopefully, we might even get a few more colours in the 2018 Annual catalogue when it is released on 1 June (we can only hope).

Bye for now,

Kris
