I was so blessed to be able to spend some time with a couple of people from the Stampin' Up! corporate office yesterday!
Cori Hancock and Shannon West, along with my team member Jodi Geers, enjoyed chatting over lunch at El Azteca restaurant! It was awesome to be able to ask them questions and give them feedback on what we were doing with our teams and events. I love that Stampin' Up! encourages our feedback and what an honor it was to be invited to give it during some face-to-face conversation! I LOVE this company!
Today, I'm sharing a few beautiful samples that Stampin' Up! created with the Blended Seasons Bundle!

Blended Seasons Spring Blooms Recessed Window Card
I love how the Blended Seasons limited-time stamp set covers all the seasons of the year! It includes 6 lovely sentiments, so it's truly a very versatile, all-occasion set! Plus, add the coordinating framelits, and you have a fantastic variety of images, elements and shapes with which to create!
Recessed Window—The leafy branch image was stamped in Coastal Cabana ink onto a Coastal Cabana card base. The window was die-cut with the medium Stitched Seasons label die. Those label dies are designed to add faux-stitching to both the label shape AND the edge of the window it creates. Look closely for the stitched detail! Too Cool! It's popped up with Dimensionals over the floral focal point layer.
Watercolor Floral—Inside the window, the floral Blended Seasons image was stamped in Basic Gray ink onto a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock, then watercolored using the new Watercolor Pencils Assortment #2 and a Blender Pen or Aqua Painter. The flowers were highlighted with Flirty Flamingo and Gorgeous Grape with some Crushed Curry in the centers. The leaves were colored with Granny Apple Green and Garden Green, with a hint of Crushed Curry. The background was lightly colored and blended in Coastal Cabana.
Finishing Touches—The Blended Seasons sentiment was stamped in Garden Green onto a strip of Whisper White, then scored and fishtailed on the ends to replicate a 3D banner. A couple of Granny Apple Green Stitched Seasons leaf die-cuts were tucked under the sentiment. A few pretty sequins from the Sequins Assortment are floating over the blooms.
Blended Seasons Summer Wreath Card
What a sweet square card that's perfect for adding to a birthday or thank you gift!
Sweet Wreath—The leafy branch image was stamped in several times in the shape of a wreath in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a 3-1/2" x 4" piece of Whisper White. It was colored in with Granny Apple Green watercolor pencil and blended, then mounted onto a Petal Pink 4" x 4" card base.
Flower Details—The Stitched Seasons Framelits were used to die-cut the vellum, Granny Apple Green and Lemon Lime Twist leaf shapes, as well as the Grapefruit Grove flower. They are all layered with Glue Dots over a Linen Thread bow and the flower is topped with a Pearl Jewel.
Sweet Sentiment—The Blended Seasons sentiment was stamped in StazOn Black ink onto a 4-1/4" x 1" strip of Vellum cardstock and adhered with Glue Dots.
Blended Seasons Fall Leaves Thank You Card
Ooh, this one might be my favorite! I love all of the pretty copper and natural colors!
Falling Leaves—The Blended Seasons leaves images were stamped in Garden Green onto a 5-1/4" x 3-3/4" piece of Crumb Cake. They were colored with Blender Pens and Watercolor Pencils in fall colors: Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Granny Apple Green and Garden Green. Then, the Stitched Seasons label shape was die-cut from the center. This time you can see the stitching on both sides of the label cut! The leaf background was mounted onto a Soft Suede card base and the label was eventually popped up with Dimensionals after some embellishment layers were added.
Leaves & Layers—I love all of the textures behind the label! There's a strip of Burlap Ribbon and a large Copper Trim bow. The leaf shapes were die-cut from Gold Glimmer Sheets with the Stitched Seasons Framelits, and I think they may have some Cajun Craze ink sponged onto them because they look almost copper colored!
Finishing Touches—The greeting was stamped onto a strip of Whisper White in Cherry Cobbler and there's a Crushed Curry wheat image in the background. The card is finished with a couple of gold sequins from the Mini Sequins Trim.
From springtime to holiday time, Blended Seasons covers it all! I especially love the traditional "Merry Christmas" greeting in a beautiful font that I could use for the insides of all of my holiday cards!
Background Elements—The Cherry Cobbler card base has a 4" x 4" piece of Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper adhered to the background. There are also some leaf and berry die-cuts in Garden Green and Granny Apple Green that are tucked under the focal point.
Watercolor Holly—The holly image was stamped onto a Whisper White label die-cut from Stitched Seasons. It was colored with Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and Crushed Curry Watercolor Pencils, along with a Blender Pen or Aqua Painter.
Finishing Touches—The sentiment was embossed in white onto a Real Red strip of cardstock, then layered over some Granny Apply Green Texture Weave Ribbon and gold Mini Sequin Trim. So pretty!
