Blended Seasons Leaves — Monday Montage #123

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of nine stampers who love to share what we create with you, and all you have to do to follow along is click on the links at the bottom of each post.

Time is running out to grab the Color Your Season bundle.  Have you gotten yours yet?  I wanted to play with the leaves stamp in the bundle and get a little coloring therapy with my Stampin’ Blends.

After stamping the image with Memento ink, I used my aquapainter and applied a light wash of Balmy Blue ink around the leaves.  I then colored the leaves with Stampin’ Blends markers.

Using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, I punched a scalloped trim from Fresh Fig card stock.  A piece of Country Lane dsp, which will be available beginning Sept. 5 in the holiday catalog, was added to the Balmy Blue card base.

The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings.

Season of Wheat — Monday Montage #122

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of nine stampers who love to share what we create with you, and all you have to do to follow along is click on the links at the bottom of each post.

I’ve been playing around with the Blended Seasons bundle some more.  I love how fun it is to color the images, whether it’s using the watercolor pencils, the Stampin’ Blends, a blender pen and ink pads, or an aquapainter.  Coloring therapy is so relaxing and fun!

I hadn’t used the wheat image yet, so that was what I pulled out today.  My grandparents were farmers in Kansas, and I have fond memories of spending summers with them and “helping” with the wheat harvest.  My grandfather would operate the combine and I would ride with my grandmother in the truck as we delivered the wheat to the elevator.  Those were long, hot and dirty days, but this city girl thought it was so fun to spend time on the farm.

I used Stampin’ Blends markers to color the image.  A blend of Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie were used, as well as Old Olive for the leaves  and Crumb Cake for the stems.

A simple watercolor wash using Pool Party and a stamp from Artisan Textures were used to make the background.

Season of Leaves — FMS349

It’s time for another new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our friend who lives half-way around the world in New Zealand, Karren Johnson, is our hostess.  She has a simple and classic sketch for us this week.  Take a look:

 

With the girls headed back to school next week, I feel like Fall should be right around the corner.  That’s not quite true here in Texas, as we’re still a good 2-3 months away from that, but I can pretend as I stamp that Fall is almost here.

I love the die-cut leaves that are included in the Stitched Seasons Framelits dies, so I cut several out in different Fall colors and Gold Glimmer Paper.

I stamped part of the sentiment with Versamark ink and embossed it with gold embossing powder.  The remainder of the sentiment was stamped with Merry Merlot ink.  It’s so easy to do this and get perfect placement with the Stamparatus.

This bundle is only available this month while supplies last, so if you like it, don’t wait too long to get it.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch!  We love to see what you create as we browse the gallery.  Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Blended Seasons Sneak Peek — Monday Montage #120

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of nine stampers who love to share what we create with you, and all you have to do to follow along is click on the links at the bottom of each post.

There is a new bundle that will be coming out soon (August 1) called Blended Seasons.  It is a stamp set that has images from all four seasons and coordinating framelits, including some new stitched label-style framelits.  I couldn’t wait to play with it, so here is the first card I made with the bundle.

I started out by adhering one of the patterns from the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Papers.  I love the detail on these sheets, and they make easy work out of creating a pretty background.

I stamped the floral image from Blended Seasons onto some thick Whisper White card stock and colored it with watercolor pencils.  As part of this promotion, there will also be a new collection of watercolor pencils available!  I used a blender pen to blend the colors, and then cut out the flowers.

Some Share What You Love Artisan Pearls and Linen Thread were added as embellishments.
