Colour Your Season - What's new at Stampin' Up!


I am happy that you are joining us for our hop. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world who are Hoppin’ With Exciting Ideas to share with you. Today we will feature products from the Blended Seasons bundle which is ONLY available for the month of August..

What a fantastic bundle Stampin' Up! has come up for August. It's called Blended Seasons and consists of a stamp set, Framelit set and a new pack of watercolour pencils.  The stamp set and Framelits will not be featured in a future catalogue, but the new watercolour pencils may go through, which would be a great addition to our existing set of water colour pencils.You can buy the stamp set and Framelits together at a bundle price, saving 10%.

As a Demonstrator, I had the chance to order the set in July, so it made the perfect sense for me to use this for my swaps for our recent Alaska Incentive Trip. Here were my swaps:



I used our Blends pens to colour in after embossing the images in white embossing powder. I used the lovely new Highland Heather (DARK) pen to create a tone-on-tone effect. The sentiment actually comes from Dandelion Wishes, as it seemed appropriate for my swap,

On returning from Alaska, I also used the same stamp set - this time with the watercolour pencils at our weekly coffee and card sessions. There are 4"x4" cards you can see below. The sentiments are from the same stamp set - a lovely style and perfect for many occasions.


Please contact your Stampin’ Up! demonstrator if you have any questions or to make a product purchase. If you do not have a demonstrator, I would be happy to answer any questions about products and the techniques shown here. You can use the link below to order products from me. (UK and selected EU countries only).

    1. Thank you Tricia. The Blends purple colouring is so subtle, when you see it against a non coloured version it really stands out.

    1. Thank you Sharon. It was good to get all my watercolour pencils out and have a go - they have been rather neglected this lasy year.

    1. Thanks Ginny - I wanted a subtle colour effect, and was really pleased. Hopefully they went down well as swaps too ! Will try this out with the new colours coming in the Autumn/Winter catalogue. Not long to go !

    1. Thank you Diane. I do tend to design clean and simple cards - and this was perfect for my coffee and card class as people could choose from the flower, leaves or Christmas. x
