Shimmery Coastal Cabana Floral Card with Blended Seasons Bundle

Today I’m sharing another card made with the gorgeous floral stamp from the Blended Seasons stamp set. This time I went for a colour combination of Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green and Woodgrain.

Firstly I stamped the floral image twice on shimmery white cardstock in Stazon and water coloured with the Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green pencils from the new Water Colour assortment 2. My Coastal Cabana pencil doesn’t seem to blend out as well as the rest of the pack so getting the flowers how I wanted took quite a few layers. To add more shimmer to the project I added some Wink of Stella all over the flowers, this looks stunning in real life but has not come out well on the photos at all.

I fussy cut the flowers and then separated them to create smaller arrangements around my sentiment. I added a few pearls to the centres of the flowers as to me the don’t look complete without, going to challenge myself not to use them on my next floral card!

The Wood Textures DSP gives the perfect background to highlight all the shimmer on the flowers.

Water-Coloured Holly With the Blended Seasons Bundle

It may be too early for some people to even think about the big C word but it after my birthday now so I’m totally ready to embrace Christmas crafting and what better way to start than with the lovely holly image out of the Blended Seasons Stamp set, the perfect image for a spot of water-colouring.

I love how you can make different frame combinations with these dies and the double stitching means you have two pieces you can use with each cut. To make the Old Olive frame I used the two largest frames and placed the smaller one inside the biggest and then cut. I then mounted it onto the white frame after I’d stamped and coloured.

The card was finished off which a layer of DSP from the Under the Mistletoe pack, this is a pack of paper which  looks so much better in real life, I really love the plaid patterns in this collection.

I finished off the inside with some holly springs on the corners but left space to wite your own greeting.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this first Christmas project I’ve shared and look forward to many more coming soon as the Autumn/Winter catalogue is amazing!!

Copper Leaves Thank You Card with Blended Seasons Bundle

For today’s project I was aiming for a simple one layer card, but I got a bit carried away with the ink blending and made a bit of a mess. So I’ve added a copper layer behind my blending and mounted on a new card blank.

I love the addition of Mango Melody to our colour palette as I think it is the perfect middle colour between Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight. All three have blended together to create the background and I love how rich and autumnal this card looks.

Some Copper embossing of the leaves stamp and some die cut Copper Foil leaves finish the card off. This was a very quick card to make but I think its turned out really well. I think the corn stamp would work equally well.

Rich Razzleberry Floral Friendship Card with Blended Seasons

If you’ve followed my blog for a while it will be no surprise to you that the first image I wanted to stamp with out of the new Blended seasons stamp set was that gorgeous large floral image. Anyone know what flower it is because I don’t recognise it?

I chose a classic colour combination of Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive as I wanted to use the Stampin’ Blends and I haven’t order the new colours yet (they’re on their way).

Adding a layer of Light Pool Party all around the stamped image really helps it to pop off the page. I added a few pearls to the centres of the flowers to add some subtle extra detail.

I decorated the inside of the card with an extra coloured flower but kept it sentiment free so I can write my own message.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this first look at the Blended Seasons stamp set, pop back soon for more ideas with this set.
