Stampin’ Up Colorful Seasons

Good Friday morning everyone.  Hope you’ve had a successful week and have some fun plans for the weekend.  Sunday Autumn officially starts.  It’s always such a beautiful time of the year with all the leaves changing colors.

For today’s card I used the Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set.  This set is so versatile.  It’s got images for Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.  It also has a Seasonal Layers Thinlits set that can be used with it.  I chose not to use them with todays card, take a look.

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I placed my Oval Stitched Framelit Die where I thought I’d want my sentiment.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I moved the framelit out-of-the-way and stamped the detailed Leaves from the set in Mossy Meadow Ink around the sentiment.  I colored the leaves in with my Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. Once everything was colored in I cut out the oval using the largest Oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

I adhered a strip from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper, with Snail, along the left edge of the card front.  Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base.

I then put some Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the oval.  I cut a long enough piece of Rose Metallic Thread  and placed it how I thought it would look nice, peeking out the sides of the oval.  It’s very hard to see in the photo since the thread is so fine.  Believe me, it’s there and just gives it a little sparkle. I adhered the oval back  to where I cut it out of the card front.  I added 4 Rhinestone Basic Jewels to 4 of the leaves to give it a little bling.

On the inside panel I stamped the leaves in the 4 corners with Mossy Meadow Ink and colored them in with Cherry Cobbler, Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from Country Home Photopolymer stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I adhered the panel to the card base using Snail.

To finish off my card, I adhered a thin strip from the Wood Textures DSP to the bottom front of a Medium Whisper White Envelope using Snail.  I then stamped the leaves again on the front and back flap of the envelope in Mossy Meadow Ink and colored them in the same as on the card front.  So that the markers didn’t bleed through the envelope, I inserted a piece of scrap paper until I was done coloring.  Hope you’ll try this card, the coloring was a lot of fun.  Thanks for checking out my blog and hope you will stop back again.
