Stampin' Blends Coloring - Christmastime is Here

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a card I made with the upcoming Christmastime Is Here Suite of products that will release for a limited time in November.  The stamp set in this suite is a duo configuration stamp set; meaning you get two stamp sets one is a Cling Mount set and one is a Photopolymer set.  With this configuration you get both styles.  The cling stamp is just the outline image and the photopolymer set is designed to layer the colors into the outline.  I just stamped the outline image and colored it with my stampin' blends.  Here's a look at my card.

I love this stamp set and love the Christmas feel.  As I mentioned this is from a Limited Time Release coming in November.  In the suite that is coming there's the two stamp sets, matching dies, enamel dots, ribbon and designer series paper.  I will share another post next week with all the products from this suite.  I stamped the outline image onto a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock using my Stamparatus and some Tuxedo Black Ink.  I did this because it's a larger stamp and I wanted to be able to stamp it twice if I didn't get a good impression the first time.
Once I got it stamped out I used my Stampin' Blends to color the image.  I colored the rose first using the light and dark Cherry Cobbler Combo Pack.  I colored the entire rose image with Cherry Cobbler Light first and put down a base color.  I then came back with my dark to add my shadows, and then went back in with my light to blend it out.  I did this on each petal, one at a time.
Next I worked on the leaves and colored them with Pretty Peacock light and dark blends.  This time I did them a little different.  I started with the dark and then came back in with the light.  With both I flicked in the colors and let the ink blend together.  Next I worked on the pine cones.  They were colored with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede stampin blends.  I then colored the pine branches with Shaded Spruce, put both light and dark in not really blending, but picking certain needles to be each color.  This gives the illusion of light and dark needles.  I wanted a different shade berry so I used Poppy Parade to color them.
To embellish my card I did some ink platter on my Whisper White Thick panel with my Shaded Spruce Blends.  And let that dry and then added some of the gold enamel dots in the limited time release suite, and popped the rose bundle up on dimensionals.
