Blossoming Basket Bundle and Stampin' Blends Update

Today I'm sharing one of my favorite Sale-a-Bration choices (with a $100 order), the Blossoming Basket Bundle.  We made this card last night at my local Stamp Club class and it was a hit!  This card comes together quickly when you color it using Stampin' Blends.  My favorite thing about Stampin' Blends is they make me feel like an artist!

How'd She DO That tips for Blossoming Basket Bundle card:

  1. Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Blossoming Basket (part of Sale-a-Bration Bundle with $100 order)
  2. Paper:
    • Crumb Cake (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base, 2" x 5-1/2", scrap for tag & classic label punch)
    • Whisper White (3-3/8" x 3-3/8")
    • Calypso Coral (3-1/2" x 3-1/2")
  3. Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento 
  4. Stampin' Blends:  Coral Calypso-combo, Old Olive-combo, Daffodil Delight-light, Crumb Cake-combo
  5. Other:  Big Shot, Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF (par of Sale-a-Bration Bundle with $100 order), Classic Label Punch, Linen Thread, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals
  6. Tip:
    • I typically stamp my greeting last and sometimes it get a little crooked.  So if you're like me, try stamping it on a scrap and punching out with a punch. 
    • The Classic Label Punch works great for most of the greetings in the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set!

Ooh - that Basket Weave Dynamic Texture Impressions Embossing Folder is awesome, a must-have!  You'll want it to create authentic-looking weaved texture for your projects.

And the Blossoming Basket stamp set is just beautiful.  What a great way to send heartfelt thoughts with a card full of lovely flowers you colored yourself.

If you read the fine-print in the Sale-a-Bration Relase #2 flyer, you already know the Basket Weave Dynamic Texture Impressions Embossing Folder will be in the next annual catalog.  However, the beautiful Blossoming Basket stamp set will not.  They do go together perfectly.  So if you've had your eye on the Blossoming Basket Bundle for your free Sale-a-Bration item, be sure to place your $100 or more order soon before the bundle is gone - ends March 31st

Update on Stampin' Blends 


From Stampin' Up!

We are experiencing challenges in maintaining an adequate supply of Stampin’ Blends.  Extremely long lead times with our supplier, combined with an unexpected increase in demand, has caused many of our current 27-color offering to go on backorder.

At this time, we’ve had to make the difficult decision to make our entire Stampin’ Blends product line (temporarily) unorderable until approximately the end of May. This is not a decision we came to lightly; but with backorders only likely to get worse in the coming weeks, it is in everyone's best interest—to temporarily make them unavailable.  This decision is purely due to the rise in demand and the complications we face with our supplier for this particular product line.

Stampin’ Blends will be made unorderable beginning this Friday, March 23, noon (MT).  We will keep you posted on the availability of Stampin’ Blends as we learn more.

If you liked to get your order in prior to them become temporarily unorderable, be sure to shop prior to noon on Friday. 

You'll find them in the online store here: Stampin' Blends
