Autumn Card with Watercolor Pencils …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

We are past the halfway point of the week and on the road to the weekend!!  Wooo Hoo! I can’t wait to share this beautiful card with you today … I created this card for my Stars Team meeting this past Saturday to highlight the beautiful Color of Seasons …

Because Stampin’ Up! is also offering a brand new set of Watercolor Pencils as a coordination product with this bundle I just had to play!! Who doesn’t love the ease of the Watercolor pencils when you want several different colors on your Autumn leaves?

Well … let me just show you, a picture is worth a thousand words (or should I say oooooh and aaaaah!!)

I stamped the images with the Momento Ink and began with the Garden Green Watercolor pencil. I used it along the vein in the center of the leaves, then I just colored in some Crushed Curry, then some Cajun Craze and finally a little Cherry Cobbler near the edges.  Each leave was a little different.

Once I was done with the Watercolor Pencils … I used my blender pen to move and blend the color.  Wow … the pencils are definitely artist quality pencils, they blend so easily and looked beautiful in spots where I hardly blended at all!

I did have to fussy cut my leaves out, but I must say that while sitting around the table with a group of friends (my Stars Team members) and just chatting & catching up, before we knew it, they were all cut out!!

After that we added just a touch of the Wink of Stella … and we did that because it really brought together the colored leaves and the die cut leaf. (The die comes with the bundle!)

Our greeting comes from the Blended Seasons Stamp Set (see below) and was punched out using the Pretty Label punch! Popped it up with the Stampin’ Dimensionals and the leaves too. The background was done with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder … the autumn leaves look so good against it!!

I can’t stop playing with this bundle … it can be used all year long and for any occasion (Even Weddings – there is a bell with a coordinating die)!! Stampin’ Up!’s® Blended Seasons Stamp Set, coordinating Framelits™ Dies, and Watercolor Pencils are perfect for every season of creating! Plus, save 10% when you buy the stamp set and Framelits in a bundle! But don’t wait—these exclusive products are only available until August 31 while supplies last.

Because the Blended Season Stamp Set and Stitched Season dies are “Limited Time Only” offer … I am hosting classes that will highlight the “Seasons”.  The first class has filled so I am adding another class on Thursday the 9th of August …

Your cards will include the envelopes … All you need to bring is your favorite adhesive.  Three spots have already been reserved so don’t wait / Contact me right away to reserve your spot.  Call 262-334-1009

Thank you so much for sharing a part of your day with me …

Have a wonderful day ~
