I had so much fun playing with these stamps I made four cards to represent each of the seasons.
They look so pretty all in a row. Almost to nice to use.
Even though it's a little bare compared to the others, winter seems to be my favourite (funny considering I usually lean towards warm autumn colours). I added a bit of glitter to my snow with PSX sparkles for that extra special touch.
For the spring theme I decided on cherry blossoms just as they are finishing and falling from the trees. It not easy to spot but I added tiny little pearls coloured with alcohol markers to the blooming tree. The pearls at the top and bottom of the card were also coloured with markers.
Summer has very vibrant colours and pretty flowers. I do not currently have purple Blendabilities so I opted for little accent buttons instead of coloured pearls. I also had this pretty gem butterfly in my stash that seemed to fit nicely.
Fall comes to life in pretty golds and brown, and a few coloured pearls.
I also made the insides of the cards to match. I didn't add a sentiment here though in order to leave room for a personal message.
