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!
This is beautiful, Susan. I want this set now. (Thanks.) Lovely use of the new In Colors.
Yes Susan I want this stamp set now also.
I am glad I could enable you both! It is payback for making me fall in love with products you have used! 😀

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.
Such a pretty colour combination! I love hydrangeas as well 🙂 Very pretty layout, too.
