Retro Sketches #179


090115Hey stamping friends 🙂 Well I’m still working on organization after the big move of my stamp room, but with the help of my IKEA purchases this past weekend I’m well on my way. I will post some pics after I get a few more drawer sets for the shelving unit I bought. I was going to do half drawers and half shelves, but I’m loving the clean look of the drawers.

Meanwhile, I’m so happy to be stamping again now that I’m back upstairs 🙂 I checked out this week’s challenge at Retro Sketches:rs179


While moving my zillions of supplies I found this beautiful flower from SU! called Blended Bloom (I tried to find a link for you online, but maybe it’s retired?). How have I never cracked this case open before?!?! This DSP was another fun find, actually I found a whole stack of DSP I had forgotten I had. Good thing I didn’t get over to my favorite LSS while we were camping in the area because I probably would have bought most of these patterns again! This one’s called  Now and Then Milo Friends Fallow Paper by My Mind’s Eye. The tag is made from THIS die from MFT Stamps. I added some Vanilla satin ribbon and half back pearls, and mounted the whole thing on Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla card stock (all from SU!)

And of course I colored my flower with Copics, here are the colors I used: BG000, BG10, BG11, BG15, Y02, Y17, YR23.

Thanks so much for stopping by 🙂

  1. Beautiful card Kerin. Your coloring makes the flower glow! And yes…the stamp is Blended Blooms and is current. The online store for SU will show it.
    I agree with you about drawers looking nice and clean. Less dusting too. Looking forward to your pictures as I want to redo my own studio one of these days and inspiration is definitely needed.
    Always nice when you can avoid the stash trap isn’t it. {grin}
    Thanks for sharing all the details for your beautful card.
