blended seasonsToday is the last day to purchase the products from the “Color Your Season” promotion as well as the last chance to snag some Bonus Day coupons. I held off on purchasing the bundle for this promotion for a long time, and I’m still kicking myself that I didn’t grab it earlier so I could share more creations here. This is my last hurrah with this stamp set while the promotion is active and I just had to whip up a quick creation to get in one last share. The stamping is simple here, and I tried out my Stampin’ Blends on Crumb Cake cardstock to see how it would go. I definitely found that the color “blooms” out more readily on this cardstock, so you need to be frugal with your application so that you don’t get lots of color outside the lines. But, I do like the look on this mid-tone cardstock for an image that is more muted. After all, the temperature dropped A LOT yesterday, and it feels like fall is in the air.

I used this sketch as the inspiration for my card. Instead of the “Any Shape” element, I decided to have a stamped element on a layer. I immediately thought of using these leaves in this way when I saw this sketch, so I was happy to play around when I got home from my “day job”. I decided to keep the layout simple and not add a bunch of stuff, and I’m kinda jazzing on the clean lines. This is looking like a pretty versatile sketch to me that could be put to use over and over again. Change up the colors, shapes, etc. will make it quite different each time.

I hope that you’ll consider these great products – click on the image to go to the section of my store with the products featured in this promotion. I really wish that the bundle would be available for longer because it really is fantastic, but alas this will only be available during August. Which means that today is it!

Also, when you purchase the Blended Seasons bundle, you will receive a Bonus Code for $5 that you can redeem on a purchase next month. In fact, for every $50 of merchandise that you purchase, you will receive a code via e-mail. For example, if you purchase $105 in merchandise, you will receive 2 codes worth $5 each. This is a perfect pairing of promotions, and with the Holiday Catalog going live on September 5th, you’ll be able to use those bonus codes to get fabulous brandy-dandy new stuff. Of course they’ll work on products that are available right now, too.

Happy last day of August!!!
