My need for quick inspiration is definitely met by the Colorful Seasons Bundle displayed so well on page 146 of the New Annual Catalogue. There are 24 photopolymer stamps with a total of 17 coordinating dies a well. This bundle covers all four seasons with some perfect sentiments. There is so much you can create with this set and I will be showing more cards over the next couple of weeks. Prepare to be surprised.
Making swaps needs quick inspirational cards and this one did fit the bill. My team mates were very happy with their swaps. I must say that the chairs I created on their cards matched up better than mine. The person must have been sitting a while and sagged the canvas. Ha! Ha!
I changed the card around a bit using products I had at hand, such as the dots from the Timeless Textures Stamp set on the top and bottom of the card and no Washi tape. I also swapped the new Daffodil delight Double Stitched ribbon in place of the Twine and ribbon.
Do you love the Copper Foil as much as me? I just love the Copper Foil Sheets
that I have used for the leaves which I teamed with the Copper Embossing Powder
and the whole card just glows. What better way to showcase the sentiment:
LIFE IS A BEAUTIFUL THING.

Thanks Stampin’ Up! for making it so easy. Not need to worry about who will be happy for me to make their card found on Pinterest. No worry for copyright, thanking others, following blogs, giving creit where credit is due. Just CASE with heart felt blessings from Stampin’ Up!
As always I am happy to answer any questions and look forward to your comments.
It’s often funny how we can fall in love with a stamp set.
The only reason I purchased this set was because we had decided to use it as our featured stamp set in the March Technique Treats that will feature Chalkboard Techniques.
I would have to admit it wasn’t a “must have” in the catalogue.
And Laugh out Loud I have used it consistently for the last 4 weeks. and to day’s card is just another example.
I have been making cards for this little miss since she was born for a friend and what did she say when her Nan asked her what she wanted for her birthday? Just my card Nanny, just my card.
She has a toy Carousel and lives near the Wheel of Brisbane and loves Cup Cakes. So I think I hit all the bases. Nan tells me that the big grin and Whee!! was testimony enough.
I stamped the wheel on the Cupcake and Carousel DSP. I stamped the cup cakes, the basket and cloud from the Lift me Up Stamp Set, on Whisper White and coloured them in with the Watercolor Pencils. Then used the Up and Away Thinlit die to cut them out. The clouds were from the same thinlits. Love how these two compliment one another.
Sentiments inside were stamped in Tuxedo Black as was the horse. I used the Oval Stitched framelits Die after I had coloured the horse and then just gently coloured the edges.
The birthday sentiment was stamped in Blushing Bride.
That’s it for today.
Happy Stamping Naomi
