Blended Seasons

Blended Seasons is a bundle that is only available through the month of August.  I've had so much fun creating cards with this bundle.  The dies are amazing!  I thought I would share these creations with you.  What makes this bundle even better?  Bonus Days!  The bundle is $64.75 - that's enough to get a $5 coupon to spend in September.  Add the new watercolor pencils and you're halfway to another bonus coupon!

These cards were made when I attended my upline, Kay Cogbill's team meeting.  It's so much fun to figure out different ways to color these.
If you look close, you can see Wink
of Stella on the bell

You don't have to color the big flower image.
You can stamp it multiple times and use it as
a background stamp.

Some new water color pencil colors in this one.

More new watercolor pencil colors -  Flirty
Flamingo and Granny Apple Green...and of 
course some more Wink of Stella.

Here are a few more I made:

This last one just uses the framelits from
the Blended Seasons bundle.  If you look
close, you can see that they have stitching
around them. I love that!  This set is the All
the Good Things stamp set. It is one of the 
Distinktive sets so it has a lot of detail. I 
inked the stamp with Pumpkin Pie and
then used a sponge dauber to sponge on
some Poppy Parade.  I love the way it 
added even more dimension.

Here's a link to all the details on the Blended Season bundle.  Don't delay, this is only available through August or while supplies last!

Designer Series Paper sale

One of my favorite Stampin' Up products?  Designer Series Paper.  I love the patterns, the versatility, the colors.  I love how the colors in the paper are listed on the back of the package. I love how one side of the paper is a great pattern that goes with the theme and the alternate side is a soft, generic pattern.  Would you like to see some cards using some of this gorgeous paper? Here are a few:

Tropical Chic

This is my favorite new suite this week!   There are so many wonderful new products in the catalog - I have to change my favorite each week.  You can create all kinds of leafy fun with the dies from this set. Here are some of the projects I've made with the suite:
Some of these I made at my friend Kay's Bingo night. She also loves this suite!
I think the colors in the coordinating DSP are gorgeous - Blushing Bride, 
Granny Apple Green (new!) and Shaded Spruce (also new!)
Did you notice one of these was a Christmas card?  Perfect for all your
friends that live in tropical locations.

String fun

We had fun playing with string in technique class Monday night.  This is an easy technique although a little messy.  It seems to work better with the lighter colors.  You can get different results depending on how you lay your string on the paper.  These are the cards we made:
This was made with Powder Pink.  I also used the new ruffled 
ribbon and pearlized doily -  so fun!

I used Soft Sky for this one.  They look like
Calla lilies to me. I even used the inked up 
string on the card - you do have to be sure it's
dry before adding it to your card!

Hand Delivered

I love new catalog time!  It's like Christmas for months!  I've had fun playing with my new sets.  I thought I'd highlight one of the hostess sets - Hand Delivered.  As a demonstrator I was able to purchase this one early.  This is such a fun set - you can make birthday cards, graduation cards, wedding cards, get well cards - so many possibilities.  Here are a few cards that I made or received in swaps.
I used the red and yellow Brusho on the left card to color 
the balloons. The card base is a new In Color - Pineapple Punch and
 was embossed using the Scattered Sequin embossing folder.
The right card has some of the gorgeous Share What You Love
Designer Series paper.  It is on another new In Color - Grapefruit
Grove with matching ribbon. I love how Stampin' Up products all match!

The left card I received in a swap. There's that Scattered Sequin embossing
folder again - this time used on a Lemon Lime Twist base
I used some Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper on the card on the right.
It is a beautiful collection of 6x6 papers that go with the Abstract Impressions 
stamp set. I also used 1/2 of a new pearlized doily. I think any bride would enjoy
receiving a card like this!

On Stage swaps - birthday cards

I had such a fabulous time at On Stage last week. There were 7 of us that traveled together.  I shared some  photos on Facebook of the fun we had.  I also shared some photos of Christmas swap cards I received.  Today I thought I would share some birthday swap cards.  I had to take these photos inside so the lighting isn't great.  I'll try to get photos of more swaps this weekend with some natural light.
