One of the things I miss most about living in Connecticut is the colorful seasons. We lived in a wooded area so the trees took on a different look with the changing of the season.
Stampin' Up!'s “Colorful Seasons” stamp set is the perfect choice, no matter what the time of year or season. Today's sample uses different shades of yellow and I hope reminds you of a recent trip to a sunny beach!
Notice the yellow gradations on the left side of this card. Using Stampin' Up!'s new Color Theory Designer Series Paper, you can easily add different splashes of color to your projects with one slice of your paper trimmer! Each 6″ x 6″ double-sided sheet is acid and lignin free. Stampin' Up! colors featured are Berry Burst, Crushed Curry, Dapper Denim, Old Olive, Whisper White. Mix and match for endless possibilities.
One of my favorite things about this stamp set is the font used for the greeting images:
Lest you think there would be a lot of “fussy cutting” for all these images, not to worry! There is a coordinating set of thinlits dies:
