The Color Your Seasons promotion lasts through August 31, or while supplies last. Translation: get it now! The Blended Seasons bundle (Blended Seasons stamp set and Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies) have images for all year round. The new Watercolor Pencils Assortment #2 has some beautiful colors that you do not want to be without! I used the stamp set and pencils along with watercolor paper and the Everyday Label Punch to create today’s card for my August Stamp Club. 

Here’s what I made:

Color You Season handmade card - Blended Seasons stamp set, Watercolor Pencils, watercolor paper, Aqua Painter, Everyday Label Punch, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Granny Apple Green card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Melon Mambo CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Watercolor Paper cut to 3-3/4″ x 5″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x __”
  • Granny Apple Green CS cut to 4″ x __”
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card

Stamped with the Blended Seasons stamp set:

  • floral image in black Stazon ink onto the Watercolor paper
  • sentiment in Melon Mambo ink onto the Whisper White CS strip

Cut using the Everyday Label Punch:

  • sentiment strips
  • NOTE: first I glued the Whisper White CS strip (with the sentiment) onto the Granny Apple Green CS strip. Then I used the punch to cut both layers at once.

Colored using Watercolor Pencils:

  • floral image in Melon Mambo, Granny Apple Green, and Crushed Curry
  • then spread around the color with an Aqua Painter
  • allowed to dry completely

Embossed using the Subtle embossing folder:

  • watercolor paper layer
  • NOTE: The watercolor paper is already textured, so this step really isn’t necessary, unless you just prefer this texture to the original one.

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Melon Mambo CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • watercolor paper layer glued onto the Melon Mambo CS layer
  • punched sentiment adhered to the watercolor paper layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
