Old Meets New in Remarkable You

With the end of the 2017-2018 catalog so very near, I figured it was time to give some love to some of my favorite retiring sets.  

Remarkable You (retiring) is one of those favorites.  The big bold flowers that color so nicely with the Stampin' Blends and being large, they are easy to fussy cut if you want.  Which is exactly what I did with this card.

The new part here is the Designer Series Paper - Tranquil Textures and the laser cut tag that comes in the Early Release bundles.

Recipe:
Fresh Fig - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Basic Black - 4 3/4" x 3 1/2"
Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper - 4 5/8" x 3 3/8"
Basic Black - 3 7/8" x 2 5/8"
Whisper White - 3 3/4" x 2 1/2"
Whisper White Scraps for stamping the flower.


Stamps - Remarkable You
Inks - 
Blackberry Bliss (Fresh Fig would work of course, but Blackberry Bliss was right in front of me!)
Memento Black
Smoky Slate (stamped off once for inside)

Remember to give your envelope some love.  The DSP seen here is actually the backside of the Fresh Fig you see matted on the front of the card.


Happy Memorial Day - remember to thank a Vet for his service and sacrifice.

Thank you for looking in today!

  1. I am working backwards. Pretty card - both are great but not sure which is my favorite. I am more of the green/blue type but lately Fresh Fig and Blackberry Bliss as well as Rich Razzleberry all have been calling for attention! Must be the heat! Great card and I will be CASEing both.
