Stampin’ Up!’s Boho Indigo Product Medley

Stampin' Up! Boho Indigo Product Medley

With the launch of Stampin’ Up!’s new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, I vowed to actually use what I purchase. Novel idea, right? Who doesn’t get caught up in the excitement of all the new supplies? Sometimes I don’t get a chance to use some awesome products. Not this time! The blues of Misty Moonlight and Night of Navy spoke to me with the Boho Indigo Product Medley. I’ve been working hard (and, really, it’s not that hard) to use all of the included elements. It’s such an awesome grouping of supplies. For $70, the kit includes:

  • 11-piece photopolymer stamp set (clear stamp blocks sold separately);
  • 48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, 8 each of 6 double-sided designs;
  • Very Vanilla 6″ x 6″ dry embossed sheets, 2 each of 3 designs;
  • die cuts with gold foil accents, 2 sheets each of 3 designs;
  • Night of Navy 1/2″ Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon, 10 yards;
  • Very Vanilla/gold 1/4″ Pleated Ribbon, 10 yards;
  • paper flowers, 20 each in 2 sizes;
  • 12-piece Boho Indigo Dies

The Card and Project

The “Sorry You’re Feeling Blue” sentiment works well with this month’s well wishes theme. I created a greeting card and mini standing Kleenex holder with the medley ingredients — with a few additional items (Gold Foil Sheets, Stitched Shapes, Layering Ovals and Cirlces) thrown in.

I grabbed the Kleenex holder idea from my friend, Bev, who makes a lot of things for craft shows.

5 Boho Indigo Card Samples

Today, I’m showing you 5 Boho Indigo Card Samples.

5 Boho Indigo Card Samples

Look on page 9 of Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. It features a gorgeous medley of products called Boho Indigo. I love Night of Navy (and now Misty Moonlight, too). The 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper calls to me. (In fact, I’ve already ordered a refill.)


Boho Indigo Product Medley

The medley sells for $70 and includes a host of really fun elements:

  • An 11-piece photopolymer stamp set with four sentiments: Such Happy News, Thank You, A Bunch of Birthday Love to You, and Sorry You’re Feeling Blue.
  • The 12-piece Boho Indigo Dies.
  • 48 sheets of 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (8 each of 6 double-sided designs).
  • Very Vanilla 6 x 6 dry embossed sheets (2 each of 3 designs).
  • Die cuts with gold foil accents (2 each of 3 designs).
  • Night of Navy 1/2 inch Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon (10 yards).
  • Very Vanilla/gold 1/4 inch pleated ribbon (10 yards).
  • Paper flowers (20 each in 2 sizes).

Get a refill kit (which includes the designer series paper, the dry embossed sheets, six sheets of die cuts, and 40 flowers) for $23.

You will need Night of Navy and/or Misty Moonlight ink, card stock (Night of Navy, Misty Moonlight and/or Very Vanilla or Whisper White) and your choice of adhesives to get started.

Other Samples

Once I started creating, the ideas just kept flowing. I’m sharing just 5 Boho Indigo card samples today. At first, I tried to create with what came in the medley. That can be done easily. But with a table full of scraps, I quickly added other elements to stretch this medley even further. Some of the items I pulled in include Stampin’ Up!’s Gold Foil, additional die cuts, Night of Navy ribbon from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack, a couple of punches, and additional sentiments.

This medley provides such fun and complementary products. I have a ton of other project ideas in my head and can’t wait to create them on paper.

I hope you enjoy the samples. Please let me know if you have any questions about this medley or any other paper crafting products. I’m happy to help. Click on any of the graphics below to shop from my online store 24/7.
