The Wonder of Wisteria

Wisteria Wonder was the first 2011-2012 In Color selection featured in my Getting to Know the In Colors class series.  I had one of those happy moments when I held it up and everyone ooohed and aahhhed:

  • Just Believe and Bella Toile stamp sets
  • Crumb Cake Classic ink pad
  • Wisteria Wonder and Concord Crush Stampin’ Write markers
  • Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake and Concord Crush card stock
  • Wisteria Wonder Patterns Prints Designer Series Paper (In Color collection)
  • Wisteria Wonder 3/8 inch ruffled ribbon
  • Blender pen
  • Pearl Jewels

It’s a very simple card, but I love the combination of colors, and I love that Just Believe stamp set.   Someone in class asked if that was an “old” stamp set – it was brand new LAST year!  It doesn’t seem old to me, because I always find new ways to use the images in the set.

The main image in this card is inked with Crumb Cake ink, and the ink is removed from the flower portions of the image with a Blender Pen.  We used the Wisteria Wonder Stampin’ Write marker to add color back to the flowers, and then used the flat edge of the Concord Crush marker to accent the centers of the flowers before we stamped the image.

I’ve seen many cards using Wisteria Wonder and neutrals.  That seems to be a really popular pairing, especially Wisteria Wonder and Crumb Cake.   (hijack:  I know Stampin’ Up! likes colors to have two-word, alliterative names, but really, what was wrong with Kraft??)  I like that look myself, but enough is enough.  We did some projects with other color combinations too. (stay tuned)

Here’s the inside of the card:

Oh dear, my title is going to create havoc with Google searches by gardeners in love with a vine.  My bad 🙂
