Four Seasons {Scrapy Land Challenge #17}



Scrapy Land Challenge #17 begins today and the theme is Anything Goes using any brand of die that Scrapy land sells.  


Scrapy Land is also having a Guest DT call.  Visit the Scrapy Land Challenge Blog to find out how you can be a part of this team.  All the information needed to apply is included in the Challenge #17 post.

For this challenge, I've used two stamp sets to create a card for each of the four seasons:  Seasonal Trees by Sparkle N Sprinkle and Simple Sayings CMS155  by Stampers Anonymous.

Spring
As you can see from the photo on the right, each of the sentiment banners are curved for added interest.  Each of the sentiments were stamped onto vellum with Distress Inks and then heat set with Clear embossing powder.


The dies used for these cards are  Spellbinders (Labels Twenty-Eight, Grand Labels Large) and Paper Smooches (Dots and Dashes).


Summer

The edges around the die cut and the sentiment banner were heat embossed using Copper Peddler embossing powder and Distress Inks  (Faded Jeans, Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon, Mowed Lawn) were used to stamp each of the images.

Fall



Winter

Liquid Applique was used to create snow on the branches of the winter scene.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has created for your inspiration.  You have until May 17th to upload your project.  The winner, chosen by the Designers, will receive a gift certificate to go shopping at Scrapy Land.    And don't forget to check out how easy it is to become a Guest Designer.
