Blended Seasons by Stampin' Up! Handmade Christmas Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! for #GDP150 Sketch Challenge #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Happy Monday Everyone!

Again, I am writing this post as a better late than never. I had a busy weekend working on a landscape job for my sister-in-law.  I was on-track to fit in my card creation and blog post, but then life happened.  Kids had swimmers ear and swimmers eyes, a trip to Walgreen’s and time just floated away.  So, here it is, a little late but worth it!

The new colors of Stampin’ Blends add so much to my color palette!  I have more coming today and then I will be ordering the new colors from the 2018 Holiday Catalog soon!  Have you tried Stampin’ Blends yet?  They take a little bit of practice, but once you get the gist of blending colors, your colored images easily become works of art!
