What’s New At SU? Color Your Season

Today I’m joining a group of Demonstrators from around the world to share the brand new Color Your Season Bundle which is available for the month of August only. This will be your only opportunity to purchase the Blended Seasons stamp set and the Stitched Seasons framelits. Stampin Up has also released a second pack of the Watercolor pencils (Assortment 2). We’ve been told the pencils *might* make it into a future catalog. Of course, there are no guarantees though. 

Today’s card uses a fun masking technique that anyone can do. I started with just the white card base lining it up on my grid paper. Then I used blue painters tape, which is specifically designed to be tacky and not permanent, and blocked off a strip of the white card stock in the middle. Then I stamped a row of the holly leaves across the top and then filled in the bottom with a second row of holly leaves. I watercolored the leaves while the tape was still on the paper. Once I finished coloring all the leaves and berries, I peeled back the painter’s tape. This creates that nice straight line of stamping and coloring.

My ribbon is lined up with the bottom edge of the stamping. The pattern paper is from the new Under The Mistletoe paper pack. And there you have it, a lovely elegant Christmas card.

    Fantastic card design. I love the dimension the masking creates for the holly design and your coloring with the watercolor pencils is amazing. 🙂

  3. Simple enough you could make a stack of them for Christmas Cards! The tiny bow is such a sweet detail. Lovely, as always, Diane.

  4. Love the masking off using painter’s tape, great technique and idea. Your card is lovely and oh so elegant!

    Great card…I love the simple yet elegant look.

  6. Great idea with this stamp set. I tended to look at the line of holly and keep it as is, but I love the way it looks like a background stamp almost. Thank you.
