I mentioned yesterday I was going to be using the negative of the die cut from that card.  One of the awesome parts about the dies from the Blended Seasons Bundle, called Stitched Seasons dies, is that it leaves stitching on the negative as well.  I have always utilized negatives of the Stampin’ Up! cutouts.  You can raise the layer for a shaker card, sponge a beautiful background with the shape of the die, etc.  But none before left stitching on the negative.  Now we have that!

The stitching shows up better than I thought it would in the photograph.  I think the stitching gives the “frame” an added WOW.  And again…..the Bundle or just these dies are only available through Friday.

I chose to make a lighthouse scene through my frame or mat  using the High Tide stamp set.  Another one I was so happy to see carried over to the new catalog.   My trip down the Oregon coast was filled with checking out all of the lighthouses.  I may have to frame one of my pictures like this.

I used a little creative license on the lighthouse color.  Most we saw on the trip were white or white and red.  But since I had the Mango Melody frame, I thought red would clash just a bit….or a lot!  For the water and the light from the lighthouse I stamped off the Coastal Cabana and Balmy Blue.  They were a tad too bright and this made them just right.  The sentiment is from the new Many  Blessings stamp set in the Holiday Catalog.

Thank you once again for stopping by to see what I have made.  I very much appreciate it and love to hear from you.  The supplies I used are all listed at the bottom of the page.
