Beautiful Friendship

Hello everyone!  Today’s BS & J Production Challenge is to use your favorite stamp set from the new Stampin’ Up!® 2019/2020 Annual Catalog.  I wasn’t sure if we could use stamps that have matching dies or not so I decided to go a stamp set that did not have dies.

Beautiful Friendship is not a stamp set that I would normally gravitate to but it caught my eye the first time (of 100’s of times) I looked through the catalog.  I immediately put it on my “must have” list and ordered it the first day it became available.  I love roses and hydrangeas and this set has both.  It is a DisInktive stamp set.  DisInktive stamps were designed by Stampin’ Up!®.  Although it looks like I used multiple stamps on each image, it was actually only one stamp.  It is designed to show depth by laying ink down in different opacities.

To make this card I first stamped the Hydrangea in Seaside Spray.  Then I stamped the roses in Rococo Rose.  Both of these colors are new InColors.  I stamped the leaves in Old Olive and lastly, the sentiment in Rococo Rose.

Stampin’ Up!®  has been trying to remind Demonstrators to make cards aimed towards the beginner stamper.  This is someone who just started stamping and does not have a lot of supplies.  They want us to make cards using just ink, stamps and paper.  This card qualifies for that.  We need to tag this kind of card #simplestamping.

Now let’s go see what stamp set(s) Jackie and Buffy made.  I am sure their creations will make me want to buy whatever they use.  They usually do!

  1. Susan this is a stunning card. I love the way you’ve arranged the elements and colors that you’ve used. I didn’t think that I needed this set, but I may have to take a second look.
