Blended Seasons was one of those bundles that grew on me – the more I saw it, the more I knew I needed it 🤦🏽♀️!
But I’m so happy that I took the plunge and bought this bundle. It is such a timeless and all occasions kind of set.
Sometimes I don’t have the time to colour in for hours on end, but this card shows that even white uncoloured flowers can still be gorgeous! I kept things simple with a crumbcake outline, and a blend of granny apple green and garden green leaves, with crushed curry in the centres of my flowers. This set has also got me using my watercolour pencils again. I’d forgotten how fun they were to use and the limited edition second phase of colours that was released with this bundle are so beautiful!
The frosted and clear epoxy droplets are a sneak peak from the brand new holiday catalogue which goes live on 5th September.
These dies are so unique – can you see the double stitching on the inside and outside of the label? Such a gorgeous effect!
Tomorrow is the last day you can purchase this beautiful bundle, so don’t miss out (just click on the picture of it below to go straight to my online shop or above on ‘shop now’) xxx
Everyone knows I love a rainbow, and when I saw the flurry of leaves stamp in this set, I immediately knew I wanted to make some rainbow leaves!
I used a spectrum of watercolour pencils and an aqua painter to achieve this effect.
The green watercolour pencil I used is lemon lime twist, and I nabbed it from my Lots of Happy card kit!
My black accent leaf was die cut from sparkle glimmer paper and coloured using a basic black blend pen. This is a brand new blend colour which will be available in the new holiday catalogue when it goes live on September 5th!
Love love love the Blended Seasons bundle – remember to purchase it by 31st August before it’s gone for good! xxx
Stampin’ Up! have some gorgeous card kits available this year, and the Lots of Happy card Kit is no exception! This Kit is perfect for if you want to be able to send a handmade card without buying lots of crafting supplies or having to agonise over design! All the hard work is done for you in this Kit and includes everything you need to make 20 cards including stamps, embellishments and even 4 x watercolour pencils in flirty flamingo, lemon lime twist, rich razzleberry and old olive. It also includes pictures of the cards to make so you can recreate them exactly. So helpful when you need a card in a hurry!
The card I’ve created here is the same design as one of the cards in the Kit, but I watercoloured the leaves in my own colours – daffodil delight, lemon lime twist and pacific point. I love how changing the colours makes the card look completely different which shows how versatile this kit really is.
My cousin recently had a baby boy and Moon Baby remains my favourite welcome baby stamp set and the obvious choice for her card. This time I opted for a smoky slate, daffodil delight and bermuda bay colour way. I love the way smoky slate pairs so well with the other Stampin’ Up! colours – it’s such a great neutral. I colored my baby image using the fabulous watercolour pencils and fussy cut this out before popping it up on dimensionals to my smoky slate card front. The clouds were made from dazzling diamonds glimmer paper and punched out using the tree builder punch. I adhered some of the clouds flat and popped others up to create dimension before adding the beautiful smoky slate gingham ribbon to finish, along with a few metallic enamel shapes.
