Colorful Seasons Artisan Hop
It’s time for another Artisan Blog Hop, and it’s all about the Colorful Seasons stamp set. YAY! I can’t wait to show you what I created for today’s hop.
Let me add in something really quick because I know a few of you are wondering. I’m ALIVE. I know I’ve been absent and for many reasons. I have some splaining to do and that is coming, soon!
But first… a pretty!
I’m not sure you can look at this stamp set and NOT think about all of the beautiful seasons wrapped into ONE set. This bundle rocks my stampin’ world for a few reasons.
- Fabulous greetings with wonderful fonts!
- Stamps that coordinate!
- Layering Framelits that are so beautiful!
- A beautiful scallop Framelit that makes me happy happy happy!
As I started to create these cards, I chose the colors for each of the seasons first and then ran with the theme. Each card has a layer of Watercolor Paper and a finely placed color wash for a background. Nothing is too fancy, yet simple and elegant for each card.
Next, I stamped the “just breathe” onto a layer of coordinating cardstock. I love how this greeting pops on the card.
Lastly, I layered the coordinating die cuts onto the Watercolor Paper. You will notice that many of the layered die cuts I dabbled with a little watercolor on them. Note, I used Watercolor Paper for the die cuts as well. I love the texture of Watercolor Paper.
Now let’s take a peek at each of the cards. I would love to hear what your favorite is.
I can’t help but start with summer. It’s blistering hot here in Florida. Thankfully I live close to a beach. Sadly, I haven’t seen it enough. More on that later.
The fall card was so fun as I used the gorgeous Fresh Fig color palette. I love how vibrant this color looks.
I always enjoy a fun snowflake card. Living in Florida, it’s the only snowflakes I’m going to see. I love how this card looks so “icy” using the Bermuda Bay and a mix of Pool Party for the water coloring.
Spring always brings such a fresh look. The new Berry Burst was the perfect addition to the flowers along with the soft Powder Pink.
What’s Your Favorite?
I would love to hear what your favorite season is and which card you love the most. I love how we can all love a different season for different reasons. It’s what makes us all unique, right?
