I have a number of sets from Hero Arts that spotlight the seasons. I bought these sets years ago (they were among my first stamp purchases, actually), but I hardly use them except on the occasional scrapbook page. They're just hard to make cards out of, for some weird reason. Until now. This set of four cards makes my heart twitter in an ecstasy of Clean and Simple perfection. It's so easy, why did I never think of it before?
Each uses the season stamp, rocked and rolled in layers with several colors to represent that season. I got the idea from a spectrum ink pad I have. It's just good for autumn, though. So I improvised with various chalk inks instead. I "embellished" with another small stamp that reflected the season (butterfly, flower, leaf, snowflake) stamped just once to fit into the spectrum of the season stamp. And I was done. Oh, my.
So, now for the little give-away. Leave a comment telling me which season is your personal favorite and why. I'll send one random lucky person the set of four cards! Plus a little "something something" just as a surprise because I am oh so grateful that so many people visit my little blog. And I thank you.
