Sunday Sketches SS040 - Colorful Seasons Stamp Set
by Stampin' Up!

Welcome to Sunday Sketches SSo40 by Stamps to Die For

Throughout my life I have always been in love with Adirondack Chairs.  Before pinterest I  would often find pictures in magazines and tear them out and put them in a file of things I like.  It fascinated me that often the pictures would have Adirondack chairs in them.  Some how they signify peacefulness.

So it is no surprise the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set and coordinating Seasonal Layers Thinlits was top on my Stampin' Up! pre-order.

Each Sunday I post a card sketch along with a card I created using the sketch. Sketches often help get my creativity fired up.

Card Sketch and Measurements


Sketches are open to interpretation.  You can create a card exactly using the sketch layout, using a square where there is a square, or you can change it to a be a circle, or oval or flower etc. You can also turn the sketch so if it is a vertical sketch you might want to turn it to be horizontal.

I can imagine myself sitting on our lake bank with a glass of ice tea enjoying the spring blossoms when I look at this card.  Life is a beautiful thing!

The Stampin' Up! colors I choose for today's card are...

  • Whisper White
  • Dapper Denim
  • Crushed Curry
  • Early Espresso
  • Real Red
  • Lemon Lime Twist

Since we live surround by trees I thought the Woodland Embossing Folder.  was a perfect choice for the background.

Today's card features the Colorful Seasons and Weather Together stamp sets Last Sunday I shared with you a card I made using the Weather Together stamp set.  This week I used it along with the beach chair from the colorful seasons stamp set to welcome in Summer. 

The photopolymer stamp sets make it easy to line up the chair fabric in any color you wish.  I choose Berry Burst Classic Ink along with Early Espresso to hand stamp my chair.

The umbrella I stamped in Early Espresso on a piece of the Eastern Palace Designer Series paper and cut it out with the Big Shot and the coordinating Umbrella Weather Framelits Die.

The Thinking of You sentiment is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set and stamped on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock in Early Espresso Classic Ink.

I finished the banner off with one of the New Bitty Felt Bows oh how I love these.  They are self adhesive so just peel and stick!

The Swirly Bird stamp set and coordinating Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies has been a top seller.  I just recently purchased this stamp set and thinlits.  Sometimes when I get a new set I am not sure what to stamp so CASEing a card is a perfect start to get me going.  Next Tuesday you will see how I REALLY got creative with this set so be sure to stop back.

Color Your World International Blog Hop - Bunch of Blossoms and Blossom Builder Punch by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com 4

I just love the Bunch of Blossom stamp set that I used to create this card, along with the Blossom Builder Punch.  I love the dimension two step stamps give to your hand stamped cards.  This stamp set is one of our photopolymer stamp sets which is totally clear and makes lining up the stamp so easy.
