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.

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

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?! 🙂

 

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

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!

And….We’re Off! Alaska Bound!

Facebook LIVE/ Join My Team

It's 4:45 AM and we're heading out to DFW. Our flight to Seattle leaves a bit before 7:00 and, with the time change, we'll land about 9:00. My brother and his wife will be our “Lyft” drivers (that was his attempt at humor!) and fetch us at the airport. Then it's off for a day of fun in Seattle. I've never been to the Space Needle so hopefully we will get to go there. We plan to visit Pike Place Market again and we'll definitely be shipping home some salmon!

And....We're Off! Alaska Bound!

If you're not familiar with this Seattle treasure, read more about it HERE.

Pike Place Market is such a blast. Our favorite thing from our last visit was watching the guys at the fish market inside throw them around.

I'll check in as we board our ship and hopefully will be able to do a Facebook Live to show you around!

We are so blessed to be able to go on these trips! Who would have thought a little rubber stamp, 16 years ago, would have been the start of all my treasured friendships and exotic adventures! Why not check out a little bit more for yourself? There's some extra perks this month that make it even more enticing

Green With Envy – LOVE the new Stampin’ Up! Green Hues!

Announcements/ Join My Team/ Paper crafting/ Paper Pumpkin

Green With Envy – LOVE the new Stampin' Up! Green Hues! Hey Stampers! My stamp clubs and classes this month used several of the new Stampin' Up! “greens”. I thought I would carry that green theme onto the blog for a few days this week.

Today's green is Mossy Meadow. If you've been around Stampin' Up! for awhile, you might remember this color from one of our In Color collections a few years back. I was SO happy to see this color return (along with Blackberry Bliss, from the same IC group)!

Green With Envy - LOVE the new Stampin' Up! Green Hues

The delicate image front and center on this card was cut with the Stitched Labels Framelits; another winner!

Instructions for this card follow at the end of the post. But first, I have a couple of reminders for you about the super UH-MAAAZING specials we have going on right now AND about my upcoming trip!

Stamp Slave,  Dave,  and I leave for Seattle on Thursday. We are spending the day with my brother and his family and then on Friday we're departing on the Royal Caribbean Explorer of the Seas for our Stampin' Up! Inside Passage Cruise.
