Saturday was my friend's birthday. We won't say which one, but let's just say she is retired, LOL. (I didn't disclose names or ages, girlfriend!)
She's a flower-loving gal like myself, and her favorite color is red, so I used the Boho Indigo Product Medley but with Poppy Parade instead of Night of Navy.
The flowers are part of the collection, but they're white. It is easy peasy to change them to whatever shade you want with Stampin' Blends! To achieve the glazed ceramic look on the vase, I inked the stamp with VersaMark first, then added the Poppy Parade ink with a sponge dauber, stamped it and heat embossed with Clear powder.

Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's Forever Fern edition! The "Crew" is made up of a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world who pick a stamp set or bundle to highlight on the first and third Mondays of each month, with a bonus hop if there is a fifth Monday. If you landed here from Nikki's blog, My Sandbox, welcome! There are eleven of us today, so there should be lots to inspire you!
The first card is a CAS layout using both stamped/die cut pieces and a die cut from the DSP. Because Forever Fern is a DistINKtive stamp, I used sponge daubers to ink the rubber so as to preserve the details. Embossed Vellum cardstock makes a simple background and the gold hoop really makes the HELLO pop.
My last card is a wee bit over the top. I got carried away with all the goodies in the suite and just started layering and building it up. I think the only product missing is the gold hoops, LOL.
