Today’s cards feature one of my favorite products from the 2020 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog: Boho Indigo Product Medley. I’ve used this suite a lot because I love the colors, the distressed vibe, the preprinted pieces, and all the lovely patterns on the DSP. And that doesn’t even speak to the super cute vase stamps and matching dies! It’s just a great set. Let me show you my latest creations, one from a sketch and one inspired by the product.
A Boho Indigo Banner Sketch
I based this first card on a sketch by Kristie Marcotte on Pinterest. The Misty Moonlight base is covered with a 4-1/8″x5-3/8″ piece of the Boho Indigo DSP. The next layers of this card use the pre-embossed Very Vanilla papers. I added the 4″x4″ square to a piece of Misty Moonlight that was 1/8″ larger. For the circle, I added more Misty Moonlight cut with the Stitched Shapes circle die.
Before I added the circles to the card, I cut three banners from the Boho Indigo DSP. The banners go right to the top of the card and peek out underneath the circles, which adds a lot of interest. I considered die-cutting a vase for the leaves, but I decided to use the pre-punched banner instead with the sentiment stamped in Misty Moonlight ink. Rather than adding more embellishments, I let the leaves be the focal point. I love the accents of gold, and this card inspired me to create the next card.
The Boho Indigo Tag Card
For this second card, I started with a base of Very Vanilla. I wanted the leaves to be the star of the show, so I added the four of them directly to the base. Next, I added a layer of the Boho Indigo DSP cut to 3″x5-1/8″. Before I glued that down, I added a piece of Misty Moonlight twill ribbon. It’s a bit fussy to add the ribbon wrap without compressing the paper, but I didn’t want to add another layer of card stock underneath.
Next, I worked on the tag, which is the focal point of this card. First, I masked off the gold edges using Washi tape. In the end, this idea failed. The Washi pulled some of the gold off the tag. It’s fine for this card because the Boho Indigo has a distressed vibe, but I’d use a different medium if I tried that again. I stamped the viney leaves from the stamp set in Garden Green. It’s a third-generation image because I didn’t want it to compete with the sentiment. I stamped the sentiment from Rooted in Nature in Night of Navy. I should have used my Stamparatus. Next time. To finish the tag, I added another piece of Misty Moonlight twill ribbon and tied that off with a bow in Linen Thread. I lifted the tag using Dimensionals for more interest.
One fantastic product medley, two great cards. If you love this medley as much as I do, don’t miss out. It’s retiring at the end of the month.
