Fall Inspiration With Colorful Seasons

Die Cut/ Holidays / Special Days/ Product Information/ Samples

Hello stampers! What a great weekend I had! The weather here in Texas was nice and I got to spend yesterday afternoon working on a Homecoming Mum. Now, I'm from California and we did not have anything remotely like this. A “mum” was a real flower mum and went into a small corsage on your wrist or dress.  I can't post a picture yet because we are keeping it a surprise from my grandson's girlfriend. Let me just say it is BIG! When I asked another mom who has made plenty of these if it is too big she said oh no; go BIG or go home! So, there you go, a learning opportunity! But, I digress, let's get back to the main reason for my post today. I want to share some fall inspiration with Colorful Seasons.

This stamp set is another one of my personal favorites in the Holiday Seasonal Catalog; the images and greetings are charming and offer cardmaking versatility for every occasion year round.

Notice on the card just above, some of the little pieces were poked out with a paper piercing tool and some of the pieces remained in the leaf. This gives a fun, unique look.

Colorful Seasons

Big Shot/ Die Cut/ Stamping

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:
