Have you noticed Stampin’ Up!’s “Product Medleys”? These are groups of coordinating products that Stampin’ Up! sells under one product number. They’re somewhat like a kit. But they’re not really a kit in the sense that there are directions for making projects. You take the products and use them to make your own designs. The only thing you really need besides what’s in the medley collection is some cardstock and adhesive to pull them all together.
Boho Indigo Product Medley – Gorgeous Papers!
The Product Medley in the new Stampin’ Up! 2020-2021 Annual Catalog is called Boho Indigo. It includes a stamp set, coordinating dies, Designer Series Papers, ribbons, die-cut flowers and labels, floral embellishments, and embossed sheets of Very Vanilla cardstock. That is quite a collection! And the blue are fabulous!
I made this card with several of the products in the medley. My favorite (as you may have guessed already) is that Night of Navy/Misty Moonlight Designer Series Paper. I picked this card layout so that I could show off both sides of this sheet of paper. The designs on the side of the paper that’s folded back are reminiscent of the stamps and dies that are also in the product medley.
The Background is Very Vanilla!
Yes, those blues are fabulous. But did I mention Very Vanilla? I am SOOOO glad to have some gorgeous papers that have vanilla as the background color. It gives a card such a rich tone. For this card, I used one of the dry-embossed sheets of Very Vanilla that are in the Product Medley. There are 6 sheets in the medley package, 2 each of 3 designs. No dragging out the embossing equipment for this card! Another feature of this card that’s Very Vanilla is the set of die-cut labels, with gold accents, that are part of the medley. There are lots of different shapes and sizes. So you can find one for many sentiments that you have in your stamp collection.
There are two floral elements from the medley in this card. One is the gold (on Very Vanilla!) die-cut flower. The other is the little fabric flower right next to it. This flower – and there are two packs of flowers in two sizes in the medley – is white. But my Misty Moonlight Light Stampin’ Blend made it blue in short order. That little bead in the middle is built into the flowers. So no tedious work getting that adhered!
And Then There’s My Secret
Don’t tell anyone, but I didn’t buy the product medley. Then where did I get these products? For the first time, Stampin’ Up! is offering a REFILL for their product medley. I’m trying my best not to buy too many stamp sets this year as I went a bit overboard last year and almost ran out of space for my stamps. But I LOVED the look of those papers. So, to keep my stash at a reasonable level as the Stampin’ Up! year starts, I just bought the refill. That’s why the sentiment for this card is from another stamp set (more about that stamp set later this week).
In the carousel of products rolling buy below, you’ll see a link not just for the whole Boho Indigo Product Medley, but also for the refill – with all those beautiful paper products! It’s a great way to try the medley out. But I promise you, once you see the papers, you’re going to start looking at the ribbons and dies and, oooh, the stamp set in the whole medley. Ask me how I know!
Happy Stamping whatever you’re working on today.
