Blended Season for Go For Greece Blog Hop
Blended Seasons Stamp Set and Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies …. Limited edition product!
Welcome to my blog and the Go For Greece Blog Hop for July. We are a group of demonstrators in a training/mentoring group call “Go For Greece”, organised and headed up by the fabulous Kylie Bertucci. As the Stampin’ Up! year is coming to an end, I can reflect on how much I have learned from this amazing group. And on how much I am looking forward to the next year with this wonderful supportive community.

No fuss watercolouring …
For this card, I have stamped the large floral image onto the smallest stitched label die. Obviously, this image doesn’t fit on that die, however just having part of the image on the label really accentuates the label shape. I think it sort of looks like a panel of patterned paper that I have cut the label out of.
I used the Watercolour Pencils (Set No 2 – limited edition in August) to colour this image, blending the colours with an Aqua Painter. I added a very pale wash of colour in the background to highlight the look of patterned paper cut out with the label die.
Sneak Peek of new product
I also wanted to sneak in some new product I have just received and am very excited about. The Tin Tile embossing folder and Frost White Shimmer Paint. Join me for my facebook live tonight on my facebook group page, open to everyone, to see how I achieved this lovely strip of shimmery gorgeousness.
Other design elements …
Using Shimmery White Cardstock for Watercolouring – Shimmery White cardstock is wonderfully smooth, which makes for crisp stamped images. And it is also fabulous for watercolouring, especially with the Watercolour Pencils. For a visual demonstration of this, check out my facebook live tonight.
Use Greeting Images in different ways – The greeting I wanted to use for this card, “Wishing You All The Best” from Blended Seasons stamp set, didn’t quite fit on the card the way I wanted it to. So I masked the “Wishing You” part of the stamp before stamping the image onto the card front. Then I white embossed the greeting on black card and just trimmed out the “Wishing You” to add to the card and complete the greeting.
Tone on Tone Die Cuts – This card was starting to look a little busy, so to tone it down a little, I used some white die cut leaves with the Granny Apple Green leaves. Having the white die cut leaves on the white background gives a more subtle textural effect.
