Hello stampers. Painted Seasons is truly beautiful. The stamp set is stunning with its distINKtive design and the coordinating paper is so lovely that you will be tempted to hoard it. But that is not the way to enjoy paper. Create with it and then send those cards to people and spread joy!! #loveitchopit is the way to go. If you cut your paper into smaller pieces that suit your needs you will use it in a very productive and time efficient manner. For most of these cards I used strips that were 3″ wide by 5 1/2″ tall. Let’s take a look.
I paired the Painted Seasons bundle with the More Than Words stamp set. I found that if you stamp your words off to the left then you have room to add an embellishment. To make the olive linen bow I just used three strands together to make a fluffy bow. One of the pinecones is stamped in soft suede and the other in early espresso. The soft suede one has been popped up. The base of the card is soft sea foam.
For this card I forgot to stamp over to the side so that made it a bit more difficult. I love how the variegated petal pink and white ribbon picks up the colours in the paper. You can also sponge the edges of your succulent with flirty flamingo when stamping the second time with your stamparatus to get a lovely realistic look. I did a Facebook live video showing how to do that.
In this closeup picture you can see the lovely detail in both the succulent stamp and in the saying from More Than Words. I stamped “Wishes” in soft sea foam and then stamped the second stamp which is only the bottom half of the word “wishes” in pear pizzazz. The word “birthday” is separate and I also stamped that in pear pizzazz. Love the look of this!!
This fun card was cased from Tammy Beard. By necessity I had to change up the sentiments. I used the new punch that is available through the sale-a-bration coordination offering. My oval framelits are still missing in action so I am slightly limited in my creativity!! The frogs were coloured in Call Me Clover and Old Olive Blends.
Are you seeing how easy it is to create beautiful cards using the #loveitchopit system? All these cards follow the same formula but have slightly different embellishments and accents. When you have great raw materials and fantastic coordination it is very easy to make stunning cards.
This card uses some leftover strips of paper. I made it during a Facebook live video so it isn’t perfect but I really do love the look of it. The colours are just so pretty. The base of the card is petal pink and picks up the colours in the flowers of the patterned paper and the green leaf trim pulls out the call me clover colour in the paper as well. The words were stamped in Petal Pink and Calypso Coral.
Here you can see the Sale-a-bration Coordination products. Can you believe it is already the last month of saleabration? It is the only time of the year where you can get free things with a $60 purchase or when you get so much more in your starter kit. Don’t miss out!!
This last card was cased from Brian King. I love how he used both sides of the patterned paper for a very striking card. I switched it up a little bit but the bones of the card and the colour combination is totally his! I just love how we can inspire each other.
I saved this card for last since it doesn’t use the same formula as the others. I did use the Story Label punch for a quick focal point. The words are from More Than Words stamped in Call Me Clover. You can get the Painted Seasons bundle which includes the stamp set and the paper as a free item with a $120 purchase. You can get just the paper with a $60 purchase. The coordinating framelits are available for $38. What is nice about the framelits is that there are two larger leaf framelits, two fern framelits and three small leaf framelits. If you live in Canada and don’t have a demonstrator I would love to have you shop with me or even better, get the great deal on the starter kit and join my team!! Just click here to make that happen, or click on the items below to be directed to my online store.
Before I close, I thought I would share a video I did a while ago (I think a year ago) about the philosophy of #loveitchopit. I hope it helps you use your paper rather than hoard it.
