Blended Seasons on Vellum

Hi folks!   I just wanted to share this card I made for recent product challenge I participated in.  I used the Blended Season stamp set with the Stitched Season Framelits (available as a bundle).  If you recall one of my previous posts, that’s a special Limited Time Only product that will be available starting August 1st.

If you are a Demonstrator, or would like to join my team to be one, you are able to purchase it early!! Now is definitely the time to do it as there is still the bonus of 10 FREE Ink Pads (one color family) when you join this month.  Just head on over to my sign-up page by clicking here to get more info!

Here’s the card I made with the Bundle:

There are a lot of elements on this one, and I love how they all work together.
I heat embossed the flower in black on vellum. I colored it with the Stampin’ Blends markers – Highland Heather, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive. I added Wink of Stella, and it made it look like shiny glass.

I added some copper to the layout with the embossed sentiment, some metallic sequins, copper foil paper flourishes, and then the copper lined ribbon from the Tea Room combo pack.

The background has a bit of texture from the Tufted Dynamic Embossing folder:

I hope you like it, let me know what you think by leaving a comment!

Designer Series Paper – What’s New at Stampin’ Up! Blog Hop

Welcome! I am happy that you are joining us for our hop today. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrator from around the world who are Hoppin’ With Exciting Ideas to share with you. Today we will be featuring the Designer Series Papers from the Annual Catalog.
Hopefully these will get you inspired, as Stampin’ Up! has their Buy 3 Get 1 FREE DSP sale going on this month! So, take a look, I know you will find a lot of wonderful ideas shared today.

When I looked back and saw I used the Garden Impressions 6×6 DSP for last month’s hop, and thought I’d like to share it in a different way. You may look at this paper and think flowers, but guess what! The flip sides of the flower designs have some pretty cool patterns, that don’t have to be made into flower cards!

So, here is what I came up with, it kind of looks like an abstract painting of a night sky.

It reminds me of another pack of Designer Series Paper – the Twinkle Twinkle DSP, which does have paper with stars on it! For my version, I added a few stars myself with some Whisper White Craft ink and the stars from the Little Twinkle Stamp Set. I also used some Smokey Slate with more stars for the circle with the sentiment. I stamped off once to make it much lighter.
The sentiment and the cute silver flourishes came from the Stitched Seasons Framelits and Blended Seasons Stamp Set – which will be available as a special Limited Time Offer next month, or you can get it early if you don’t already have a Demonstrator and you join my team.

Here you can see I finished it off with some Polka Dot ribbon, Silver Baker’s Twine, and of course Wink of Stella. I love that this can be a great card for anyone, and that you don’t have to make flowery cards with the flower paper! That’s the awesomeness of the Designer Series Papers… TWO sides. YAY!

I hope you enjoyed my card today, showcasing how easy it is to use the DSP as a main element to a card, as well as showing off some of those beautiful patterns on the back.
