Amazing Painted Seasons - #SUOC217

The current challenge over at Stampin' Up! Only Challenges is showcasing our favorites in the 2019 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs.  Needless to say I could not pass this challenge up as I am thoroughly enjoying all the new products... but my favorite stamp set thus far has to be Painted Seasons from the Sale-A-Bration 2nd Release!

Inspired by the 2019 Occasions Catalog Cover, I created a mask from one of the dies from the Four Seasons Framelits Dies (available now for demonstrators and for everyone on March 1st as a coordinating purchase to the Painted Seasons stamp set).  The succulent stamp was stamped first in Balmy Blue and then multiple times in Lemon Lime Twist and Grapefruit Grove onto a 4"x4" piece of Shimmery White cardstock.

The Blueberry Bushel die cut sentiment 
(actually one of my favorite items from last year's SAB 2nd release!) 
was triple layered to compliment the dimension in the succulent stamp 
from this amazing 7-piece Distinktive Cling stamp set. 

The masking was also continued for the inside of the card...

... and the envelope!

It doesn't take much to create this card... and it could definitely be recreated in a variety of other different color schemes, but don't you just love this color scheme to be able to use the Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins?!?

I hope that this has inspired you to get inky and creative with your stamps and dies today!  Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world... have a blessed day!
