I have three cards that I’m sharing today – all made with the Painted Seasons Bundle (Painted Seasons Stamp Set and Designer Paper) and the coordinating Four Seasons Framelits dies. But first I want to bring you back to the Painted Seasons Strip Fold Card that I shared with you on my February 16th blog post. Click Here to see that post.
After I shared that pretty “springtime” fun fold card,…
I kept on going and making other versions (hahaha…does that surprise you?) using that same collection of coordinating products. And now I have 3 more versions to show you today! Yay!
For this “summer” version, I stamped the flower with Poppy Parade Ink and then colored the center with an Early Espresso marker and the petals with a Petal Pink marker to try to duplicate the look of the flower in the designer paper.
The inside sentiment is stamped with Early Espresso ink. I first stamped the bottom image with full color ink. Then I linked up the top portion of the word, stamped it onto scrap paper, and then stamped it on my cardstock to get a lighter shade of that color.
For this “fall” version, I stamped the large leaf image using Pumpkin Pie ink. Then I used the Early Espresso Marker to draw in the brown lines down the center. For the smaller leaf I tipped the stamp and inked up half of it with Lemon Lime Twist ink. Then I tipped the stamp the other direction and inked up that side with Call Me Clover ink.
Isn’t is awesome that there are dies that coordinate with these images?! Can you imagine fussy cutting these out?
For this “winter” version, I stamped the pinecones with Early Espresso Ink and then used a Blender Pen to blend the brown ink and color the image in a bit.
I used the same trick that I used on my summer card above for getting the two shades of red on my inside sentiment.
