RemARKably Creative Blog Hop:: Colorful Seasons

Welcome to the Colorful Seasons RemARKably Creative Blog Hop!  This hop is focusing on the Blended Seasons Bundle from Stampin' Up!  This bundle is only available during the month of August (or while supplies last), so be sure to place your order today so you don't miss out on this versatile bundle!

For my first card, I used the holly stamp to create a Christmas card.  The holly leaves were colored with pencils from the Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2 which was also released this month.  These pencils are so easy to use.  Just color your image and then use another medium to dissolve the color (aqua painter, blender pen, Wink of Stella).  I prefer to use a blender pen because I feel like I have more control than I do with an aqua painter.  My card also features the Dashing Along DSP.  This is part of an upcoming promotion that will be available in September. (See the bottom of this post for a complete supply list!)

My second card uses the same layout as the first.  I just changed the stamps, coloring medium, and DSP for a completely different look.  For this card I used the Stampin' Blends to color the leaves. I took my color combination from the Nature's Poem DSP which is also used on this card.  I added a little bling with the Faceted Dots.

I love the large flower design on this last card.  I colored the design with Stampin' Blends in Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apply Green.  I used the Dark Soft Suede Stampin' Blend for the flower centers.  The die cut image is mounted on a print from the Tropical Escape DSP stack. This DSP is one of my favorites from the Annual Catalog.

Still looking for more inspiration?  Here are a couple of other cards I have made using this bundle. (Clicking on either of the pictures will take you to the post with all the details).
