Why Should I Buy Stampin’ Up!’s Blended Seasons Stamp Set?

Big Shot/ Customer Q & A/ Die Cut/ Tuesday Tips

Hey Stampers! Today I wanted to tackle a question I've been getting from some customers. Why should I buy Stampin' Up!'s Blended Seasons Stamp Set?  This product is only available for one month so why do I need it? This is such a great question and I've got a couple of answers.

First, while this stamp set is only available during August, you will be able to use it for years to come. This stamp set was designed to be versatile, perfect for more than one season and occasion.

Why Should I Buy Stampin' Up!'s Blended Seasons Stamp Set?

You'll notice there are floral, fall foliage, and winter/Christmas images. There are six sentiments, covering any occasion or event.

Another reason you might want to add this to your collection is there is a coordinating set of framelits dies so you can create beautiful layers in a snap.

Why Should I Buy Stampin' Up!'s Blended Seasons Stamp Set?

The best value would be to purchase the stamp set and dies as a set or “bundle” and save 10%! The bundle is available in both clear and wood mount.

Now, last, but not least, here is the best reason you need this stamp set and/or bundle. You can color purple flowers! You DID know my favorite color is purple, right?! 🙂

This sample was colored with the new assortment of Watercolor Pencils, which are only available while supplies last. I can see so many different sentiments for this card. As a matter of fact, I think I'll make several sets of these, with sentiment pieces, put together in one of our acetate card boxes. What a great gift!
