Five Minute Friday – Blended Seasons

Today I’m sharing a brand new product that became available August 1st and will be available only through the end of the month (or while supplies last). It’s so exciting when we get these special limited-time releases. This stamp set has a variety of images and sentiments that will carry you through the year. We’ve got flowers, holly, and Fall leaves.

Since Fall is right around the corner, my first card naturally used the Fall leaves. To make the leaves, I stamped them in Early Espresso and then sponged the Curry and Mango colors onto the leaves. There is also just a hint of the darker brown sprinkled on top. This stamp set has a coordinating set of dies, but the dies don’t actually cut out this set of leaves so I had to hand cut them out.

The card base, which you actually can’t see here with the card closed is Cajun Craze, which is a lovely orange-y rust color. The Nature’s Poem pattern paper coordinates so well with the Fall leaves in the stamp. And of course I can’t have a card without a bit of bling and the Gold Glimmer strip of paper is perfect for this.

Be sure to check back next week for more projects using this same stamp set and the dies. Monday’s post will go live very early. So early, that it will actually be *SUNDAY* late, late. When you see the post, you’ll understand why. See you then!

Available August 1-31st (or while supplies last), is the brand new Color Your Season release. This release is comprised of the Blended Seasons stamp set and Stitched Seasons framelits. Also available is a brand new pack of Watercolor Pencils (Assortment 2), which you can purchase separately. The stamp set and dies will be available only during this promo. The Watercolor pencils may be available in a future catalog. This next special, Bonus Days, is a great chance to stock up on what you need now, and then get something at a discount in September. For every $50 you spend before August 31 (before shipping and tax), you will earn a $5 Bonus Days coupon code that can be used September 1–30. There is no limit to the amount of $5 Bonus Bucks you can earn and they can all be used at the same time! The Bonus Buck coupons are sent out by email to you once you place your order. Make sure you keep that email in a safe place as Stampin Up does not track those coupon codes.

This is for new* month-to-month subscribers only and cannot be applied to prepaid codes. The 50% discount only applies to the new subscriber’s first kit shipped.
