Colorful Seasons Is Nature at Its Best

One of Stampin' Up!'s best thoughts is the branch and flowers from Colorful Seasons. I just love it!  Just check on Pinterest.  You'll see that lots of people love it.  Here is my take.  It's a card we made in class recently.

Colorful Seasons  branch and bird

I have paired it with the beautiful new In Color Berry Burst.  I'm not a pink person, but this color is just lovely.  Here's how the card is made.

  • The card base is Berry Burst measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4.
  • The striped paper at the bottom is from the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack.  It's a 6 x 6 stack.  My piece is cut 2 x 5 1/2.  It goes at the bottom of the front of the card.  Butt up next to it a piece of Old Olive card stock that measures 3/8 x 5 1/2.
  • Cut a piece of Watercolor Paper 2 1/2 x 4.  Use the Aqua Painter to brush on Old Olive ink.  Just press on the lid of the ink pad.  When you open it, there will be ink in the lid of the pad.  Use that.  Brush on the ink until you like it and allow to dry completely.  If you want to rush the drying process, use the Heat Tool.
  • The branch is cut from Early Espresso and the flowers from Berry Burst.  Use the Layering Seasons Thinlits Dies.  The bird is also in Early Espresso.  It's from the Birds and Blooms Thinlits Dies.  Adhere with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.  Use Fast Fuse to adhere the panel.  Watercolor Paper sometimes needs a little extra.
  • The words are from The Colorful Seasons stamp set.  Stamp in Old Olive on Whisper White.  Cut this out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  Adhere with dimensionals.

Here's the inside of the card.  This is all stamped in Berry Burst.  I suggested in class that they might want to stamp the sentiment in Old Olive.  It does look better.
