Colour INKspiration CI39 – Subtle Blended Season

Colour INKspiration Challenge

Welcome to Colour INKspiration Challenge number 39 and this week we are using another of the new Colour Collections as our colour palette to work with.

CI39 Subtles

As always the crew is kicking off with a Blog Hop this evening.

If you have been hoppin’ along – you will have come from the awesome Mel – what a gorgeous card!

I’m focussing on the Colour Your Seasons Suite at the moment as I want to make sure EVERYONE is aware of these awesome products while they are available – and that’s only till the end of August but only while supplies last.

I’ve teamed the Colour Your Season Bundle with Vellum to make a soft and dreamy project. The three Subtles in my cad are: Mint Macaron, Soft Sea Form and Calypso Coral. There are a couple of basics thrown in too. The sentiment on the front of the card is heat set Black Embossing Powder and on the inside, the image is tamped in Basic Grey before colouring.

CI39 Subtle Blended Season

This is the bundle itself – versatile images and sentiments in the stamp set – and AH-MA-ZING dies in the framelit set!

I’ve included more information about the Colour Your Season Bundle below – including links to see more information, or to purchase & earn the fabulous Tutorial Bundle (from 12 Global Designers) for FREE!

CI39 Subtle Blended Season

But back to my project. It’s a bit hard to see in the photographs – but the front panel had Vellum in to give an opaque window to see through into the inside of the card.

In this picture you can also see how I’ve constructed the front of the card. The middle-sized Stitched Season panel has been cut out of both the front and the front mat. I’ve attached the Vellum to the mat and then used Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach this to the front of the card. 

The same size panel has been diecut from Whisper White as it is perfect for colouring with the Stampin’ Blends. The Light and Dark Combos of both Mint Macaron and Calypso Coral were used.

The flowers have a Basic Adhesive Backed Sequin in the centre. I wouldn’t normally put embellishments on the inside of a card like this – but the construction of the front means there is a small space so they won’t get squashed!

You can see there are two bows on the outside of the card. I cut the bow twice from Mint Macaron, one with Multipurpose Adhesive sheet attached before cutting so I could stick it to some Soft Sea Foam. The second one is simply attached to the back one at the centre with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to give a layered look.

The mat is embossed with the Subtle Dynamic Texture Embossing Folder – thought it was very appropriate for this week’s colour challenge!

There are also some more Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins on the front of the card.

Hope you’ve enjoyed the project. If I can help you in your crafting journey – please make contact with me:

The bundle I’ve used in my project is from the Colour Your Season Suite which is only available during August – while supplies last.
Colour Your Season
The Colour Your Season suite is a set of all-new, limited-time products that are only available in August and only while supplies last.  
This gorgeous suite includes 3 items
  • the Blended Seasons Stamp Set (images for every season),
  • the coordinating Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies (Squeal – they have stitching on both the positive and negative images)  

Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies  –  $69.00

  • Watercolor Pencils (ten new colours). 

Watercolor Pencils (Assortment 2)  –  $26.25

the stamps and framelits are also available to purchase as a bundle – in wood or clear block mount.
WaterColour Pencils

Now in even more colours – 10 in fact – these high-quality, smooth colour pencils are perfect for creating watercolour stamped images. Use with Aqua Painters, Blender Pens, or alone. They work beautifully with the Blended Season stamp set. They are also Acid and Lignin Free

The colours in this assortment complement the colours already available in the Annual catalogue. They are Balmy Blue, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo, Garden Green, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy. 

Blended Season Stamp Set
As the name suggests – there’s a stamp for any season in this set! But not only do the images work for different seasons – they also cover a huge range of card giving reasons. From Christmas to wedding to Get Well to Thanks and most things in between!
The different images and sentiments fit so well onto the different sized dies in the Stitched Seasons Framelits.  
And of course, those images are perfect for colouring. It could be with the Watercolour Pencils or Stampin’ Blends or Aqua Painters. So much choice!
Stitched Season Framelits
I’m in love with these framelits!  
Only one of the dies – the Bell shape – actually cuts out a stamped image from the Blended Seasons Stamp Set. The others are stand-alone dies – though of course, they coordinate beautifully with the other stamped images and sentiments.
Stitched season Framelits
I’m particularly fond of the decorative shaped panels. Three sizes equal lots of versatility – and they that mat so well together. Look closely at the shaped panels – the cutting and stitching configuration means when the panel is cut you get stitching around the panel itself – AND stitching around the outside of the “negative” space left behind!!! You can see that in the images below.
I’ll be featuring more projects using this fabulous suite over the next week.
And remember – any purchase of $NZ50 or more this month qualifies you to receive the amazing International Tutorial Bundle for FREE!! This month five (5) or the 12 projects feature the Colour Your Seasons Suite!
Here’s a sneak peek of the projects in the August Tutorial Bundle.
