Blended Seasons

July 23, 2018

My card today is created using a stamp set which is going to be released during the month of August.  The promotion includes the Blended Seasons stamp set and Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies and a selection of 10 new Watercolour Pencils in some gorgeous colours which will be a great addition to the ones we already have.  I am a little late sharing this with you and you may have already seen the promotion elsewhere but I didn’t want to share too early.  I will probably pop in over the next week or so with some other creations using the stamp set and framelits dies.

The stamp set is truly versatile with images and sentiments to cover many occasions.   Also available during the promotion period is a set of 10 Watercolour Pencils in some of the gorgeous new colours released in this year’s annual catalogue.  There is a possibility (but not confirmed) that these markers may be available in a future catalogue.

Anyway today I decided to case one of the cards in the flyer below. I embossed Whisper White card using the Softly Falling Embossing folder, before attaching a piece of Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper across the bottom half (This Designer Series Paper is available this month as part of the Buy 3 get one Free Designer Series paper promotion).  I wrapped the top of the designer series paper with a length of Gold 3/8″ Metallic Edge Ribbon and attached the whole panel to scored and folded Real Red card.  To create the focal piece I used my Stamparatus.  I cut out one of the label dies from Whisper White card using the Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies.  I placed the outside piece into the Stamparatus and then lined up the holly image so that it fitted into the top part of the label. I placed the label die inside the frame and stamped the holly image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I removed the label, rotated it 180 degrees and placed it back into the template and stamped the holly image once more.  This gives me an image at the top and the bottom of the label piece which are both perfectly aligned and completely symmetrical.  Gotta love your Stamparatus!  I coloured the holly image using Stampin’ Blends – Light and Dark Old Olive, Dark Daffodil Delight and Dark Cherry Cobbler.  The label is attached to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting from the Blended Seasons stamp set onto Real Red card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, punched the ends using the Triple Banner Punch and attached it to the label between the stamped images.  I cut out two sets of leaves from Old Olive card and two sets of leaves from Gold Foil using the die from the Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies.  I actually cut the leaves into two pieces and attached the pieces behind the top right and lower left corners of the labels.

To decorate the inside of the card I attached a narrow strip of the same Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper across the bottom of Whisper White card.

Well, what do you think?  Personally I am in love with the way this card turned out.   I can’t wait to share another creation using the Blended Seasons stamp set and co-ordinating Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies.

Don’t forget you can only purchase the stamp set and co-ordinating dies from the 1-31st August.  You can purchase them as a bundle or individually.   Once they finish on the 31st August, they will no longer be available.

Bye for now,
