A Simple WOW Card With Colorful Seasons!

Stampin’ Up!’s Colorful Seasons stamp set is an all-around great set. It has stamps depicting every season of the year, and great sentiments that you don’t find too often…like the sentiment on today’s card.

Today’s card is a SNAP to make and has a big WOW factor! How do you create a simple WOW card? Bright colors and a bold sentiment ~ those are key!

Pretty Pointer ~ Make a quick, fun ribbon tie! Here the gorgeous Lemon Lime Twist ribbon is wrapped once around the center of a 2-1/2″ square Whisper White panel with long ends left loose on the left side. A piece of Whisper White Baker’s Twine is used to tie the ends together, first in a knot to secure them tightly and then with a bow to finish it off.

The picture below shows you all the great stamps and dies included in this bundle. This is a set I’ll definitely be using into fall and winter ~ I mean, look at those pretty leaves and snowflakes! And that adirondack chair is so cute!!

In fact, if you like to get started on holiday cards early (like July!) this would be a great stamp set to start with 🙂

Just Breathe!

Don’t you like this sentiment? We all need to stop and take a breath, don’t we? And, really, wouldn’t you like to receive a card with this sentiment? It says that the sender knows that you are going through something or are busy, and they recognize it and care. I love it!

And this card is easy to make! We love quick and easy! The ombre background is a piece of the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack. I think it looks a bit like an ocean or a sky. The daisy is Daffodil Delight card stock punched our twice with the new Daisy Punch. The center of the daisy is a White Perfect Accent.

The sentiment from the Colorful Seasons stamp set was stamped with Dapper Denim ink. This card has bold statement elements but it’s simple. I like it!
