Boho Indigo Medley comes to life; has been the theme of our Paper Craft Fun time on FaceBook. Each day we have created beautiful and unique cards with the Boho Indigo Medley from Stampin’ Up. On Wednesday we created and designed two 12×12 scrapbook pages. My plan is to combine all the cards in this blog post and I will add a new post for the scrapbook pages. Let’s get started.
Let’s started with a bang!
Special technique used with this card. First, I wanted to use Very Vanilla with this one. I love the lace ribbon and knew it would add a special touch. It was then I learn you could use either Very Vanilla or Whisper White. Next, the kit comes with beautiful little white fabric flowers. Only I wanted them to be blue. So I pulled out my Light Night of Navy Stampin Blend and started to color. AWESOME. The cute bead in the middle of the flowers, came that way from the kit. Let’s look at another one!
When my camping friend Donna saw what I was doing, she got in on the action. Oh, did I mention, we are camping in our RV at Lake Jordan, NC while I am creating with the Boho kit. Anyway, she used Whisper White with the designer series paper. From there she added a row from the Medallion die set in Cherry Cobbler. Then Donna stamped her flowers on a bed of Soft Suede leaves found in the stamp set to this kit. I just love the way she mixed the patterns. Of course I love the Red Rhinestones she added to the vase. Let’s see what is next!
Boho Indigo comes to life.
After making several cards, I wanted a change from the Night of Navy. So I added more color. First I started with Cherry Cobbler cardstock base, then I added 3 colorful vases. Note that my red and yellow vase (opps looks like it is tipping over). I did this my turning the stamp up side down, when I stamped it with Daffodil Delight, next I stamped it in Cherry Cobbler ink. Now I have a completely different look. When I stamped the Granny Apple Green, I did a stamp off before stamping. This changes the color of the vase and gives it a different. look. Yep, there’s more!
As I have loved all of these cards this one is one I have made several times. Though my picture does not show it, the Very Vanilla card stock came with the kit pre embossed. Also this kit came with 2 different ribbons. Again my picture fails to show the muted gold in the ribbon. You can also see the white flowers I spoke of earlier. I also stamped a green leafy, then used the dies to place a Garden Green behind it.
Bring it all together, I have created a mix of patterns with vases, flowers, navy ribbon and sediment. All this came in the Boho Indigo Medley kit. It’s a remarkable kit with all sorts creative opportunities. With all the crafting I have completed, I still have a lot of designer series paper, embellishments, ribbon, tags and the fern sheets. I would recommend this kit to all crafters.
