Season’s Blessings Bundle Is NOT Just for Holidays!

I tend to hesitate buying stamps or dies that are specific to the holidays. Why, you ask? Primarily because I want to be able to use my supplies year round. So I am always looking to see how else I can use a stamp or die set. Well, I discovered the Season’s Blessings Bundle. It includes the Season’s Blessing Stamp Set and the Seasonal Basket Dies. And, it is Not just for the holidays! At first glance, you might think this bundle is mainly for the Christmas holidays. But look a little closer. In fact, it is so versatile, I haven’t even used it to make holiday cards. At least, not yet!

Remember, it is okay to CASE cards. You may be asking, “what does it mean to CASE?” CASE means either “copy and share everything” or “copy and selectively edit.” Either way, feel free to CASE the cards I am making today!

Cards To Be “CASED”

Season’s Blessings Bundle

The Season’s Blessings Stamp Set has poinsettias and a basket to put them in, along with a seasonal sentiment, for holiday cards. But there’s more! You can use the flower and leaf images year-round, in different ink colours for different occasions. The same with the sentiments. Use them for birthdays, thanks, gratitude, thinking of you.

Don’t forget the dies! They add polish to your projects with so little effort. They make your cards look like you spent more time on them than you did. That’s always a plus.

In the video below, you will see that I daubed the oak leaf stamps for a fall look. Add Designer Series Paper or use your Stampin’ Blends to color stripes on the baskets. So fun, you can adapt it to any season! In the video, I am going to CASE two cards from the Stampin’ Up Design Team. Neither of which are holiday cards.
