Hello stampers! I am finally sharing some projects made with the beautiful Blended Seasons Bundle. I was quite anxious to do so since this amazing set is only available in August. Stampin’Up! is not kidding when they say this. They will not bring it back in another catalog, so if you like it the time to get it is now. I think by the time you are finished reading this blog post you will agree that it is both beautiful and versatile. It is designed to be used for colouring and layering and the stitched edges, oh my!!!! The first card I made with it used only one of the sayings. Here it is:
I just love the simplicity of this card. It took about one minute to make. The iguana with the fly is a bit of a cheat I must confess. I used my Brother Scan’n’Cut for that, but it was very finicky and did not cut much of what I wanted it to, so I made do with what I had. The next card was embossed with copper and I have another confession to make. These cards were all made late last night so the quality isn’t quite up to snuff. I forgot to use my embossing buddy so there are some stray bits of embossing powder. My blending is sub-par, but guess what? It’s still a nice card. I thought it was important to show you that not everything I made is stellar. Just breathe. Embrace your imperfection.
Do you remember the beloved Top Note die? The shape of the three nesting framelits in this Blended Seasons bundle is very reminiscent of that. These framelits take it up a notch though. They have a stitched edge on the part that is cut out AND the part that is left behind, so it is great for card windows as well. This image should give you a better idea of the framelits that are in the bundle.
This next card appeals to me because of its beautiful simplicity. It is all about the texture and the colours which to me exude fall. What do you think?
The deep texture of the corrugated embossing folder is just divine. I think it will be great not only for fall cards but also for a country Christmas and for masculine cards. The next card is also a fall card with a bit of watercolouring on the leaves, again done late at night so be kind!
I think this next card may just be my favourite. I would say it is a five or ten minute card and it looks like you really spent a lot of time on it. I paired it with the leaf framelit from Colourful Seasons in the annual catalog. Once again you will see the amazing Corrugated embossing folder. Wow!!! The Blended Seasons bundle is available now but you will have to wait until September 1 to order the embossing folder, unless you join my team, then you can put it in your starter kit!
The last card is also one of my favourites, it is a Christmas card using the Joyous Season paper from the upcoming Holiday catalog. If you do not have a demonstrator and you would like a holiday catalog, please message me. I send them for free to anyone who orders from me. Sadly you need to live in Canada to be able to order from me.
If you live in Canada and do not yet have a demonstrator I would love it if you ordered from me online. I will send you a card made with this great bundle. Please use this online code if possible and thank you very, very much!
Now I was going to make a video myself to share on this blog post, but Shannon West just posted one and I learned a lot from it, so I am going to share her video first. I promise I will also do one, but in the meantime, enjoy this new very casual Stampin’Up! video. They are experimenting with a new style and I like it a lot better than the old ones which were a little to “canned” for me.
