I am in love with the card I made today. I love the soft yet bright colors, the pretty floral border and the sentiment from the Seriously the Best stamp set. It’s the perfect card for keeping in touch with our friends while we are keeping physically distant.
And what about that border? Isn’t it gorgeous? I used one of the Ornate Border dies from the new Ornate Garden Suite to cut it from paper that I colored with Pigment Sprinkles.
Pigment Sprinkles and the Seriously the Best stamp set are both on the Last Chance List and only available until June 2 or while supplies last.

Last Chance/Retiring products are only available while supplies last. Don’t miss out on some great items and deals.
Seriously the Best Stamp Set
This is Seriously the Best stamp set! I love the bold sentiments and I’m a little sad to see it retire. I think bold sentiment stamps (or dies) are a key ingredient for making quick and easy cards. With a bold sentiment you don’t need much else.
Pigment sprinkles are so much fun! Simply sprinkle a bit of the pigment powder add a little water and you have a beautiful watercolor medium to paint or stamp with. Read more about how I used them here.
Some Unexpected Color Matches
One thing I found really exciting about the Pigment Sprinkles was the different depths of colors you could achieve depending on how much water you added and that those colors actually matched other Stampin’ Up! colors. Also, when using two different colors of the sprinkles, the areas where they mixed often created other Stampin’ Up! colors.
Melon Mambo & Mango Melody = Flirty Flamingo, Pumpkin Pie & Poppy Parade
I used Melon Mambo and Mango Melody Pigment Sprinkles on the paper the border is cut from. And as expected, there are areas that perfectly match Melon Mambo and Mango Melody, but there are also areas that perfectly match Flirty Flamingo.
And in the sneak peak of tomorrow’s card (below), where I used less water, there are areas of Pumpkin Pie and Poppy Parade.
Bermuda Bay = Shaded Spruce
By using less water with Bermuda Bay sprinkles on this Thank You card from yesterday, it created areas that perfectly matched Shaded Spruce.
Ornate Border Dies
While Pigment Sprinkles and the Seriously the Best Stamp Set are on the Last Chance List, the Ornate Border Die Set is a new item — Actually a sneak peak from the new Annual Catalog that comes out in June.
These floral border dies are so pretty! How could you not want them?
