On the subject of which, all my current customers should have received their copy of the new catalogue by now, because I send one automatically. If you are in the UK, are not a current customer of mine and would like a copy, please email me with your address and I will get one out to you. If you are a current customer and your catalogue has not arrived, please let me know.
The video is a little ‘interesting’ because my camera died a few days ago. It has been temperamental for a few weeks now, but it has finally given up. I have been doing some rather rushed research into what to replace it with. As ever, I only just got a new one sorted out in time to do today’s video. Phew!!! I ended up filming rather later at night than I would like, so I am not convinced that the lighting is great, but fingers crossed.
Back to the Blended Seasons cards. They are both single layer cards (well, I have used a mat, but you get what I mean). There is some very simple masking and colouring with our fantastic Stampin’ Blends. My big tip for the masking is to make sure you take some of the ‘stick’ off the washi tape first, this helps reduce any paper tearing issues. I used a mat for the stamped layer because alcohol markers tend to ‘bleed’ through to the other side. Not a great look!
I have used the same colours in both examples, but switched the main colour of the flowers. What a difference that simple change makes to the final cards. Which one to you prefer? The softer Daffodil Delight or the punchy Calypso Coral? Interesting that one is in the Brights family and one in the Subtles, but not the one you would think!
