The Blended Seasons stamp set is a large set that comes in two cases. There seasonal stamps that make this set great to use all year. I’ve made cards coloring in the flowers with Stampin’ Blends and the Watercolor pencils, but I did a different technique for this card, stamping Whisper White card stock randomly with a stamp from Timeless Textures. I think the pattern really goes well with the curlicue pieces in the coordinating Stitched Seasons Framelits. Did you see the stitching on those Framelits? Yep! These dies put stitching on both sides of the cut, so whether you’re cutting out an opening, a layering piece, or an open frame like I did here, you will have stitching. I sure hope to see that show up in upcoming Framelits!!

We have a pond in our backyard and I love it! I love the peaceful sound of the waterfall. Right now the surface is covered with waterlilies in pink, yellow, and white. We have had herons and egrets who also love the pond for a totally different reason! Thankfully there are lots of places for the fish to hide!

I pulled out my shaving cream for the background. I love this technique and I think it’s perfect for this card. And there is a sneak peek of the Take Your Pick tool that is in the Holiday catalog. You’re definitely going to want one!!!

The watercolor technique is perfect with the Touches of Texture stamp set. I used the colors in the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper. I think this card would work for just about any event and the sentiments in Another Wonderful year give you lots of options.

I designed this card with the new stamper in mind, but I couldn’t help myself. I had to add a bit more texture with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder. The pattern is so subtle, it’s difficult to photograph. Stampin’ Up! used to sell plain and textured card stock and this folder adds a similar texture. Of course, using the embossing folder means you will need a Big Shot, something the new stamper may not own. You could certainly use Watercolor Paper instead of the regular Whisper White Card Stock I used. That would give you the texture without the Big Shot.

Oh So Eclectic is oh so beautiful! The stamp set coordinates with the Eclectic Layers Thinlits. The Thinlits have pieces that cut out the insides of flowers (and a diamond) that you can use with or without the piece that cuts around the outside. There is a large piece that cuts the diamond background pattern and a couple of pieces that emboss without cutting. Love it! These product will be in the upcoming 2018-2019 annual catalog, but the bundle price is going away. Now is a good time to buy them and save 10%. Dapper Denim, Rose Red, and Emerald Envy are going away too. I checked last night (5/9/18) and the Rose Red and Dapper Denim card stock and the Emerald Envy ink pad were still available, but the In Colors tend to sell out quickly. The Powder Pink ribbon is actually on sale right now. Time to shop!

As an independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I went to OnStage (a convention) last month and was able to pre-order some of the small sampling of products that will be in the upcoming 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. I used some of those products in this card. Rooted in Nature is a bit like the beloved Lovely as a Tree. (Don’t worry! That stamp set will be in the new catalog too!) But Rooted in Nature has coordinating Framelits. There are some Thinlits in the set that do not cut, but emboss. Can you see the cluster of three leaves? I embossed with the Thinlit and then cut it out with the matching Framelit.

I’m going to an event with other local demonstrators this weekend and I’m taking this card as a swap. It was a bit of a challenge, because I’ve packed up my retiring products and I haven’t received my larger pre-order. I wanted to try one of the new In Colors, Call Me Clover, but I was not able to buy much card stock in the new colors… not nearly enough to do any large layers for 2 cards. So I decided to use Very Vanilla for most of the card. I used a tiny bit of the Call Me Clover card stock, sponged that color over a portion of the card front, and then stamped over that. I think I’m going to love this new bright green!

I don’t the links for the all the products I used, as they are not yet available to the public. You will have to wait until June 1st…. unless you want to join my team. But you can order the new In Color Stamp Pads in the new case style. And there are few bundles to sample some other products.

But there are a few items everyone can purchase now.

This is a quick and easy card. You will not need a Big Shot, but I did use 3 punches. I’m afraid the gorgeous Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper® is all sold out. I will miss that paper!!! And the Baker’s Twine and Enamel Shapes are also retiring. But really,  you can make this card with another printed paper and embellishments you may have. I am happy to say that A Good Day will be in the new catalog.
