There’s only two more days to get your hands on the Blended Seasons bundle so I’m back today with another idea for you.
I’ve used the falling leaves stamp and stamped over watercolour paper in Stazon and then coloured with Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Garden Green watercolour pencils, which all belong to assortment 2. I coloured the leaves really roughly to try and highlight the affects of the turning leaves and I think the end result is quite good….if you don’t look too closely.
To add some texture I added some strips of ribbon to the side of my greetings panel. I used a small piece of the new Braided Linen Trim and I wanted something which would add a bit more Cajun Craze to the card. We don’t carry anything like this so I made my own using the Polka Dot Ribbon and the Dark Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends marker, which adds exactly what I wanted to the card.
Hope you’ve enjoyed todays project and remember order these products now before they’re gone forever.
Colouring is one of my favourite past-times while watching tv as I can’t just sit and watch I have to have my hands busy. Last night I was using the new Water Colour Assortment 2 pencils to colour these flowers from the Blended Seasons Stamp set.
I love how some simple colouring has turned into a beautiful card this morning. The colours used were just Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and the smallest amount of Crushed Curry, but the image looks like I used many more shades.
I was going to mount the image onto just a white card base but I think the added black layer gives the card a real “pop”. I stamped the greeting using Stazon on some vellum as I still wanted all of the flowers to be seen.
A super simple card which looks beautiful, now I’m off to do some more colouring.
I’m going all modern and monochromatic for today’s card and simply using black and white. I’m loving how versatile the Blended Seasons bundle is, the combinations really do seem to be endless.
This time I simply stamped the large floral image on black cardstock and embossed in white, a technique which looks stunning no matter what image you use. Just remember to use your embossing buddy so you don’t end up with little white powder flecks everywhere.
Using the Stamparatus I was able to perfectly line up the greeting in my frame die cut from the Stitched Labels Framelits. The black 1/8″ cord trim works well to “fasten” the frame to my card. The background paper if from the Tropical Chic 6×6 DSP Stack which has a few black and white pattern options in it, if you don’t have this you could easily make your own or use the Petal Passion DSP from the Spring/Summer catalogue if you have any left. A few faceted black gems and the card is finished.
Here’s a look at what I did to the inside, just a simple bit of stamping.
For today’s project I pulled out the Stitched seasons Framelits and had a play cutting out the various shapes. To make the wreath I cut out eight of the leaves in Mint Macaron and five of the small flowers in Blushing Bride. I cut the leaves off the flower dies as I didn’t want pink leaves, not really sure why the flower isn’t a separate die.
To create the background I took some Blushing bride cardstock and stamped the leaves stamp randomly all over in Blushing Bride to give a tone-on-tone look which wasn’t going to detract attention away from my wreath.
To make the wreath a cut a whisper white circle from the 6cm diameter Layering Circles dies and glued onto my card. I cut the berries section off all my leaves and then positioned them all round the circle, overlapping in some areas.
I then added the Congrats banner which was stamped from the Banner for You stamp set and cut from the Bunch of Banners Framelits. I fixed the banner on with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added the flowers around the wreath, tucking a couple under the banner. I added some Rhinestones to the flower centres as a final touch.
Today I’m sharing another Christmas card made with the Blended Seasons Bundle of products. This time I used the holly stamp to create a back ground for my card and then I coloured it with Poppy Parade and Garden Green Stampin’ markers.
The gold embossed sentiment comes from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set, which again I have added to my card using the gorgeous stitched frames from the Stitched Seasons die set. I will really miss these next month when they’re no longer available, so if you’re thinking about making purchase I would hurry before they sell out.
I added the bow die cut and a strip of Poppy Parade cardstock to make the card look like it was a Christmas present.
A little holly and a sentiment finish off the inside. Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project.
