The Stamptastic friends are a lovely bunch of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who want to share their passion for all things crafty with you, and we are here today with a theme of ‘retired product or new Annual catalogue’, so you can be sure to find a pretty eclectic mix when you are hopping around.

Now, I am a sucker for colouring in, so this was definitely one of my favourite stamp sets from the soon to be disappearing annual catalogue and I will be very sorry to see it go. Why not grab yourself a bargain and get colouring!

I stamped this image in Memento onto Sahara Sand cardstock. The Stampin’ Blend alcohol markers colour surprisingly well onto coloured cardstock, and it gives a very different look to the card than being on Very Vanilla or Whisper White. I have used Melon Mambo and Granny Apple Green blends.

To add some dimension to the card, I actually stamped and coloured two of the flower clusters, cutting the centre flower out of one of them, shaping it and adding it on top of the base one. I added some Faux Suede Trim and some linen thread, with a sentiment and then layered all of this onto a Melon Mambo panel.

The base card is also Melon Mambo with a Sahara Sand layer. To create a background I stamped the smaller flower image in Sahara sand all over the background. I love how you can use the same large stamps for making backgrounds of focal points, and with the sentiments included in the set, it is a great all rounder.

I finished the card off with some Elegant Faceted Gems which almost look like rain drops or dew drops – so pretty!
