I Was Cleaning My Craft Room When I Got Distracted By My Stamps!

By | 05/10/2016

That’s right!  I was cleaning my craft room and sorting through retiring stamp sets when I cam across the Blended Blooms set.  It’s retiring at the end of this month and will no longer be available for purchase through Stampin’ Up!  I purchased it two years ago to practice using the alcohol markers that Stampin’ Up! had come out with at the time.  I decided that I wanted to play with it one more time before I placed it on the retired shelf!

This week’s Paper Craft Crew Challenge is a simple challenge:  Flowers!  I love big, bold, graphic blooms so this was too tempting to pass on!


Stamping Imperfection Blended Blooms

My color inspiration came from this season’s garden catalogs.  Everywhere I look, I’m seeing the pear green combined with the navy and white.  I found it so irresistible that I actually decorated my porch with that very same color combination.  Joanne Fabrics had a perfect plain pear fabric that I used on the seat cushions and I found a wonderful navy with a bold graphic white flower pattern.

I found outdoor rugs to coordinate from the Home Decorators at homedecorators.com.  I’m hoping the rugs arrive this week!  They had a nice sale with free shipping a couple of weeks ago and a big percentage off. It seemed like they were calling my name!
