Hello August! I'm so glad you're here since that means the scorching heat of San Antonio living will be over fairly soon! School will start, cooler weather and football season will follow, and the fabulousness of fall will begin!
Stampin' Up! is helping us get through the dog days of summer with TWO exciting promotions. One of those is the incredibly gorgeous Blended Seasons Bundle and NEW Watercolor Pencils--all items are available through August only. (We did get a tip that the Watercolor Pencils, Assortment 2, may show up in a later catalog:) I'm hoping to see them in the spring catalog aka Occasions!)
For today's share, I have a handmade card using my favorite new Stampin' Up! core color--Petal Pink. And I used the Blended Seasons stamps alone. I'll share another card tomorrow that uses both the stamps and dies. But I like to show the features of the stamps, the dies, and then both together because there is so much versatility in these creative products.
Blended Seasons is a red rubber stamp set. Click here to see all the stamps in the set as well as the dies and watercolor pencils.
Let me point out just a few things in my handmade card, and then I'll list and link all the products used.
- Petal Pink card stock and coordinating Subtles Designer Series Paper formed the perfect, soft background for my flowers.
- I actually used the Watercolor Pencils in the main catalog--not the new ones. My aim was to show that you can use what you already have and still create a beautiful project. Although Petal Pink is not in the set of original Watercolor Pencils, I used Calypso Coral and colored very lightly. I then spread the color with Blender Pen to achieve the soft color that works beautifully with my Subtles color scheme.
- Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins are my favorite new embellishment in the new catalog. The colors are gorgeous--I think there are 5--and versatile. I used the greenish ones here and they blend beautifully with my project. They add lots of subtle shine and pizzazz but not bulk, so my card still mails for a single stamp:)
Although Blended Seasons is available through August, notice the fine print that it is while supplies last. Order your bundle early to save disappointment!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. All Stampin' Up! supplies are listed and linked to my online store below for your convenience. Come back tomorrow for more Blended Seasons inspiration!
