Cards for All Seasons

Hello Wednesday.. I thought it would be fun to do a cards for all seasons post...one card for each of the seasons...  First up is Spring = Easter...and some sweet little bunnies.
 Ingredients:  Basic Grey Paper; PTI Daily Design Sentiments and Daily Design; Kaiser Kraft Gems; Stampin' Up Pink Pirouette and Marina Mist Ink; Bazzill Basics Cardstock

Next, is a bright and cheery summer card.  This card was inspired by Susan's post on masking here.  Have to say...this is my favorite of the bunch.  I stamped the text background by masking the outside edges and applied a little distress ink to the edges as well. I then colored the floral stamp and stamped it off to the side.  I've entering this for the current Moxie Fab challenge to stamp with markers.
Ingredients:  PTI Text Styles and Beyond Background Basics; Hero Arts Stamps;  Stampin' Up Markers; PTI Twine 

Recently, I've been inspired by a variety of cards...in particular this card by Karen, to stamp on patterned paper versus plain cardstock.  For this card, I stamped three distress inks on the wreath and then stamped in on the card.  Love the fall colors.  The Hero Arts wreath stamp is really versatile for any season.

 Ingredients:  Stamps:  Hero Arts and Verve; Range Distress Inks; Crate Paper Restoration Paper; Button and Twine:  PTI; Felt Leaves:  Hero Arts

My final card is my first Christmas card for next year and another card where I stamped on patterned paper.  Love the simplicity of this card...I'll need to make some more of these.  It's always nice to have Christmas cards that don't require a ton of postage.  The Verve stamps on this card are newer too.  They'll be getting lots of use.
Ingredients:  Paper:  Crate Paper Restoration Collection; Ink and Paper:  Stampin' Up Cherry Cobbler; Stamps:  Verve; 

Hope you've enjoyed the tour of the seasons!

  2. What a fun idea to make a card for each season. If I ever find the time, I'd love to do that. I am smitten with that summer card. Just love how you put those pretty flowers off to the side. Isn't that masking post by Susan great? Thanks for sharing them all. :)

  7. What a fun post and a great group of cards. I really loved the Spring (cute bunnies) card and the gorgeous Fall card as well. Those are my two favorite seasons which may be why they were my pics here.

  8. What a wonderful post, Lynn! I love every single card. The colours of the papers and bunnies are wonderful. I love the beautiful flowers, twine and masking on the second. The third I love because fall is my favourite season. The simplicity of the final card with stitching on the edges is perfect!
