Blended Bloom for JAX STARZ December Blog Hop

Welcome to the JAX Starz December Blog Hop.  You should have arrived here from Sheilah Stampers' blog.  The challenge this month was to use the sketch shown below.

 I decided I wanted to use a much larger stamped image and chose Blended Bloom.  I love this Stampin' Up! stamp and haven't used it nearly enough.  I stamped the image onto Coastal Cabana cardstock and used the Coastal Cabana Blendabilities to color it.  Any guesses on what color Blendabilities I used for the center portion?  Nope, it's not Rich Razzleberry.  I actually used Melon Mambo!!!!!  Using the Melon Mambo on top of the Coastal Cabana cardstock caused it to look exactly like Rich Razzleberry.  That is what I call a happy accident!  LOL

Direction for this card:
  • Coastal Cabana cut 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 for card base
  • White Whisper cut 5 1/4 x 4
  • Rich Razzleberry cut 3 7/8 x 3 3/4
  • Coastal Cabana cut 3 7/8 x 1/4
  • Coastal Cabana cut 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 for stamped image
  • Using Memento Black Ink stamp Blended Bloom image onto Coastal Cabana cardstock and color with Coastal Cabana and Melon Mambo Blendabilities.  Add white dots with the Signo White Gel Pen.  Cut out.
  • Adhere Whisper White & Rich Razzleberry cardstocks together and dry emboss using the Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  Glue Coastal Cabana strip over seam.  Glue onto card base.
  • Stamp Hello from A Dozen Thoughts onto a scrap piece of Whisper White and die cut using Bitty Banners framelit.  Also die cut scraps of Coastal Cabana & Rich Razzleberry using the same framelit.  Glue pieces together.
  • Adhere the Blended Bloom and the sentiment using Stampin' Dimensionals.
