I am in love with the soft lavender shade of the new In Color Purple Posy. I was saddened to find out that we currently are unable to order Purple Posy Classic Ink Pads or Ink Refills. I had to wait until the catalog release to order the color in the Stampin’ Blends alcohol ink Marker and Stampin’ Write Marker. I’m so thankful we can at least use these for coloring and stamping. I’m also thankful that Stampin’ Up is committed to bringing us top-notch, quality products and aren’t settling for anything subpar. I’m sure the manufacturer will get the ink pads and ink refills up to standard so we can then purchase them. In the meantime, it’s the old-fashioned way of stamping – using the Stampin’ Write Marker directly onto the stamp. I find the quality is just fine when using red rubber stamps. This is how I was able to stamp the sentiment on this card. I used the Stampin’ Blends Marker to color the Pearl Basic Jewels so they would match. I thought out of the box with the Scalloped Linen Ribbon and cut the Purple Posy edging away from the linen in the center. Look closely and you’ll see that the Basic Black layer has been dry embossed with the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder. I just love how the Purple Posy pops on the black background. And tell me again why I so rarely use the Springtime Impressions dies? So pretty!
