TSSC 310 Golden Oldies

I needed to make a card for a 50th birthday party and I needed to do my design team sample for this week's Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge - and I didn't have time to make two cards. So, I used the TSSC sketch for the birthday card - and made it to the surprise party with time to spare.


Since it was a 50th, I wanted to make a humorous card, but really had no thoughts on what to do. So, I did what any stumped stamper would do - I searched the Internet. That wasn't a big help. Fortunately, I remembered the retired Stampin' Up! set, Golden Oldies. I pulled it out and started putting the card together. The sentiment is kind of hard to read due to the angle of the card, but it says, "My mind not only wanders - sometimes it gets lost completely."

I still have my old Blush Blossom marker, which I use for coloring people, but I decided not to color this guy. I was thinking he'd look pasty, like now that he's old, he never makes it out in the sun (I'm not that saying that older people don't make it out in the sun, of course, but for some people their outdoor time does decrease as they age). Since he's so white, I'm not sure I got the look I was going for. Oh well, it works.

Speaking of coloring stamped images, Stampin' Up! will be introducing a new set of alcohol based markers called Blendabilities. They will come in 12 Stampin' Up! colors, plus a clear blending marker, and a set of skin-toned colors ranging from ivory to mocha. There also will be an ink pad designed to work well with the markers. Each of the sets in SU colors will include three markers ranging from light, medium and dark in that color. That's pretty much all I know about it right now. I'll keep you updated as new information is announced.

Supply List:

Stamps: Golden Oldies (retired), Morning Post Numbers (retired)
Cardstock: Night of Navy, Sahara Sand, Whisper White
