Blended Seasons Christmas Card Tutorial

Hi Friends! Have you gotten your "Blended Seasons" bundle yet? If so, you know how awesome and versatile it is! If you haven't ordered it yet, keep in mind these new products are only available until the end of this month, or while supplies last!

https://www.stampinup.com/ecweb/product/149894/blended-seasons-clear-mount-bundle

Here's a lovely Blended Seasons Christmas card, which is simple yet pretty, and ideal for mass producing. This card is also a perfect example of one of the things I love most about Stampin' Up! products - our colour coordination!  Our card stock, designer series paper, inks, markers, ribbons and embellishments all match, which is the magic key to making a quick and easy card look so great!

Supplies:
  • Stamp Sets Blended Seasons (w149019) (c149016) or Bundle (w 149893) (c149894)
  • Cardstock – Shaded Spruce (146981)
  • Stamp Pads - Memento Black (132708), Real Red (147084)
  • Misc. – All is Bright Designer Series Paper (147892); Dimensionals (104430); Poppy Parade Blends Pack (1472750; Granny Apple Green Blends Pack (147274); Color Lifter (144608); Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (141897); Real Red Mixed Satin Ribbon ~ 4 1/4" (147894); Tear & Tape Adhesive (138995); Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110775)
Measurements:
Shaded Spruce: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" (base card)
Polka Dot DSP: 2' x 4 1/4"
Crumb Cake DSP strip: 3/4" x 5"
Shaded Spruce DSP strip: 1" x 4"
Whisper White: 2" x 3"

Instructions:
1. Stamp holly leaves at the bottom of the Whisper White rectangle using Memento. Make sure your ink is dry and then color using the Blends. Work in small sections of your design because the alcohol evaporates quickly ~ the alcohol must be wet to blend. Use the chisel tip of the Light Blend to cover the holly leaf. Add the Dark Blend towards the berries. Return with the Light Blend to go over the two shades to blend them together.
2. Stamp 'Merry Christmas' in Real Red ink and add Wink of Stella to the berries. Add Dimensionals to the back.
3. Assemble card using Liquid Glue. Add the pretty holly berries piece last.
