Adirondack chair of Colorful Seasons

Have you seen the Adirondack chair die from the Colorful Seasons Bundle? Nothing says sit back, relax and “just breathe” the fresh air like an Adirondack chair.  I love this die cut shape.  It makes me want to find a cool drink, some sun glasses and enjoy the sunshine!  

Actually, this Colorful Seasons Bundle is probably my favorite bundle in the catalog.  It is one that I know that I’ll be reaching for again and again.  There are so many fun shapes and seasonal images to craft year round — winter, spring, summer and fall.  And, the sentiments are just beautiful and timeless.

Below is one of the cards from my June stamp camp – which was designed by the very talented Melissa Ellis, another Inky Angel.  It uses five different techniques – tearing, dry embossing, die cutting, sponging and masking – to create depth and interest. It features Tranquil Tide, Soft Sky, Crumb Cake, Whisper White and the Wood Textures Designer Series.  To make the background clouds, I created a mask using the cloud images from Up & Away Thinlits and sponged the clouds with Soft Sky.  After dry embossing the Crumb Cake piece using the Softy Falling embossing folder, I sponged Crumb Cake ink on the raised dots using a very light touch.

The card was accessories with White Perfect Accents and a banner using Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.  

Thanks for stopping by.  I think it is a good time to sit in the sunshine and study the new Stampin’ Up! catalog.

Until next time, sending you crafting hugs and inspiration wishes!
