Last week I received an order with all of the new Stampin’ Blends colors! They are finally back in stock, and the new colors are gorgeous! For this card, I used Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green (both light and dark shades of both), as well as Daffodil Delight for the centers of the flowers. The large floral stamp is from a brand new stamp set called Blended Seasons, which will be available for a limited time beginning August 1st! (More about that soon!) I paired the colored floral image with the new color Mango Melody, because I just love the combo of these three colors together!
Another new product I used on this card is the Big Shot Embossing Mats. These new mats allow you to use cutting dies to emboss, rather than cut. So the floral images along the right side of the card were actually made with a cutting die! These new mats provide so many more options for decorating and adding detail to projects! Here’s a close up of the detail on the embossed edge:
The die I used for the embossing is from a new set called the Stitched Seasons Framelits. These new dies are part of the same limited time offer as the Blended Seasons stamp set. The stamps and dies will be available separately, as well as in a bundle (save 10%), again, beginning August 1st!
Other products used on this card include the Touches of Texture stamp set, Stitched All Around stamp set, and Petals & More Thinlits Dies. I also added just a touch of Clear Wink of Stella to the insides of the flowers for a bit of shine!
Measurements for this card are as follows:
Mango Melody card base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)
Poppy Parade card stock strip: 2-5/8 x 5-1/2 inches
Whisper White card stock strip: 2-1/2 x 5-1/2 inches
Floral stamp image: 2-3/4 x 4 inches (fussy cut)
Sentiment die cut: 5/8 x 2-7/8 inches
I am a huge fan of the new Brights colors, and I love the way these three look together! Please stay tuned for more information regarding the new stamps and dies, as I will be posting everything you need to know about it sometime in the next few days!
Thanks for checking in today! Enjoy your day!
