Today we'll create a Simple Simple Simple Blended Seasons card! It's that totally awesome new stamp set that Stampin'Up! available only during August. There's a fantastic coordinating set of framelits (get both - bundle saves 10%). They are only available in August AND as long as supplies last. I'm assuming Stampin'Up! planned well, but we have seen supplies do not always meet the super demand of some of these terrifically popular products. So my tip to you is order soon!
Here's today's card---this card (and the bundle) are designed to span the seasons meaning there is something in there for any season and any occasion--those bundles are wonderful to have on hand when you need something quick and easy.
We've used only one stamp from the set as the background & as the focal point in the middle band. You can substitute any of your favorite colors! The directions are below followed by the Supply List. Use the Shop Now button or click on one of the product images & order your supplies from by store now while we have sufficient supplies.
Things to remember:
*We are having a class in my studio August 26th, 1PM to create 3 more card designs (3 of each) using the awesome bundle, so sign up for that now - only 10 spaces open. Note--if you can't come to class you can just order the card packets--you will have the stamps and framelits if you order the bundle. (Reservations required: Fee $25).

1. Cut Lemon Lime Twist cardstock 8 1/2 X 5 1/2, score the long side at 4 1/4 (card base); stamp leave images randomly on card front with Lemon Lime Twist Ink. (note: clean the stamp to use with another ink)
2. Cut Shimmery White cardstock 2 X 5 1/2. Stamp "Wishing you all the best" (Blended Seasons stamp set) in Stazon Jet Black ink on the right side. Stamp the leaf images around the verse in black ink. Color these images with Watercolor pencils (Granny Apple Green and Garden Green). I blended both of these on the darker leaves to give the Garden a bit more yellow. Blend the color with Blender pens. Apply Wink of Stella on the lighter green leaves.
3. Cut Granny Apple Green cardstock 5 1/2 X 2 1/4. Adhere to the back of the Shimmery strip with liquid glue; adhere this unit to the center of the cardbase with liquid glue.
Your card is ready for sending---it was simple, right?
