Card, Colorful Seasons, Sitting Here, Blooms & Wishes
Before we get to these beautiful cards today, I wanted to remind you that the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers are back in stock.  If you have them on your Wish List now’s the time to grab them and I will have all the links at the bottom of this post.  Most importantly I wanted to remind you the Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blends are retiring, so just a few more days and they are gone for good.  To order the Pink Pirouette Combo Pack just click the image below 🙂

Have you added the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set to your Craft Stash?  I’ve got to tell you the possibilities are endless with this set.  You can not only create cards representing every season of the year but also simply stamp elements in your own random design to create awesome cards as seen below:
Card, Colorful Seasons, Sitting Here, Seaside Embossing Folder

The beach scene card above was created by Tammy Taylor, and I absolutely love how she paired the “come sit a while with me” sentiment from the Sitting Here Stamp Set, with the beach lounge chairs (brilliant).  If you look closely you’ll also notice she embossed the background layer with the Seaside Embossing Folder to add the effect of water waves in the background.

The Just Breathe Sentiment on the card below, is my favorite from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set.  It really is the focal point of this card and is complimented with flowers from the Blooms & Wishes Stamp Set (also retiring) using soft colors and die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  If you are wondering how the the top border was created for the basic black layer I can tell you this was done using the Ticket Tear Border Punch (also retiring).  The creator of this card didn’t sign her work, but I loved it and wanted to share.
