Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons Easel Card

Jillian Selwood, Purple Jelly Designs, Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

I'm so disappointed that it's the final week of August as that means it is also my final week on the Crafty Cupcakes Design Team, I've thoroughly enjoyed myself and would like to thank Lea for the opportunity.  I am on the Design Team with Emma Hudson of Little Crafty Me, you can visit Emma's blog here. We have been given the Colourful Seasons Stamp Set to work with. It also comes with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies and you can save 10% if you buy the bundle. 

This week was a difficult one, as there are only four seasons and I've already done Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter what on earth was I going to do for this week? So I decided to take part of each of the four cards I have already made and put them onto an Easel card.

I die cut cardstock in Powder Pink, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Pool Party using the Stitched Shaped Framelit dies then die cut a scalloped square in Gold foil for the Summer and Autumn colours and Silver foil for the Spring and Winter colours.

I also die cut the flowers, chair, leaf and snowflake in Gold and Silver foil.

Then I had to decide which sentiment to choose and not only that what colour to stamp it in. So I decided on 'Just breathe' as that is my favourite and I used both gold and silver Heat Embossing powder, I was quite pleased how it turned out.

I think I might trying that again. I also layered the sentiment on Gold and Silver foil which is cut on an angle.

Here is the card in all it's glory. I'm not sure I would have chosen all these colours together but I actually think it works. What do you think?
