Peaceful Petals is a stamp set from the Occasions Catalog that was not carried over into the new Annual Catalog. This means that it will retire on June 1st. I am going to miss this set especially now that Stampin’ Up! is going to start selling their own set of alcohol markers called Blendabilities. As a Demonstrator I was able to purchase some of the them. Stampin’ Up! wanted demos to try them out. I am not sure when they will be available for customers to order. We have been told they might not be available when the new catalog goes live on June 2nd. I will keep you updated on this.
I colored the flowers in the card using the Coastal Cabana Blendabilites. Most of you who know me know that I can’t color to save my life but I have learned I actually do an ok job using the Blendabilities. Stampin’ Up! makes it so much easier because each pack of them comes in 3 shades of the same color: dark, medium and light. You just color with the dark one where there would be shadows, The blend over that with the medium one and use the lighter one where you think the light would be shining. It is not hard to do at all and I am sure with a little more practice I will learn to color even better.
Don’t forget if you like this stamp set to order it before it is gone forever!
