Remarkable You

Remarkable You is a stamp set that has been around for a number of years. I just discovered it.  I am not sure why I didn’t purchase it when it first came out because I loved it then.  I love it every year but somehow it got lost in all my orders.  I finally bought it last week.  Now I have years of posts to make up for this.  Be prepared!  Oh, and it will probably retire this year so if you love it, get it now before you can’t.

I think I never got it before because I am not much of a colorer and it needs color.  Now that we have the Stampin’ Blends, there is no reason left.  Stampin’ Blends make coloring so easy that even I can do it.

To make this card, first I stamped the Calla Lillies in Memento Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and then again on a Post-It Note.  I cut them out of the Post-It Note and placed it on top of the stamp that was on the Whisper White cardstock.  This is called masking and allowed me to stamp the leaves without covering the flowers.  It is so easy to do!  You don’t even have to cut the flowers out super carefully to make it work.  Then I colored the flowers using the Light and Dark Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends and the leaves with the Light and Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  It was so easy!

  1. So after this card, you can NEVER say you’re not much of a colorer ever again. These are GORGEOUS. The gray – er – Smoky Slate – shadows are perfect. I didn’t get this set either; this really is the first card I’ve seen that made me regret not having it.
