Painted Seasons

Right away I was drawn to the Painted Seasons set.   I love the distinctive stamp images of this set.



Just look at the pretty printed paper Stampin’ Up! has paired with the stamps.   The 12×12 paper features 4-double sided designs and you get 3 sheets of each in the DSP package!


Here’s a quick video of how beautiful the flower stamp image.  My first ever YouTube instructional video!



Fabulous Flowers

Once I was finished creating all these fabulous flowers, I had to come up with a card design to highlight these beautiful flowers.   Another terrific product available on Friday is the Country Floral Textured Impressions Embossing folder.  Just look at how beautiful these two products pair up!

The card base is Lemon Lime Twist with the Whisper White layer embossed with that brand new Country Floral embossing folder.   The sentiment was stamped and then die cut using the Humming Bird thinlits set.  I added some vellum leaves and a stamped leaf from the Painted Seasons set.   Here is another version.
