Colorful Seasons

This is a really quick and simple card to make.  I first stamped the background using the stamp set called Colorful Seasons.  I stamped the leaves in Basic Gray, Petal Pink and Highland Heather in a random order.  Then I cut out the frame using two of the Rectangle Stitched Dies.  I love the way these dies cut the inside and the outside of the rectangle.  I stamped the sentiment from Kindness & Compassion and put it inside the rectangle frame.  I thought it needed something more so I used the coordinating dies called Seasonal Layers and cut a  solid leaf and the detailed leaf out of Petal Pink cardstock and layered them together.

I have been so fortunate to have my grand daughter, Olivia stay with me once a week this fall while their parents work.  Olivia is now five months old.  I don’t know how that happened because it doesn’t seem like she has been around that long.    Being a grandmother is the best job I have ever had.  She is an absolute joy.  She is happy most of the time except when she wants to eat because when she is hungry, she wants her food immediately.  There is no stopping to burp her either.  She tells you in no uncertain terms that burping can be done after she has had the entire bottle.

My children all a thing with pumpkins.  They like to take baby pictures while sitting inside one.  Madelyn, Nolan and Emy all had pumpkin pictures.  I don’t know about this tradition.  I would think a pumpkin would be mighty cold and slimy but none of them seem to mind.  Here is Olivia’s pumpkin picture.

She certainly doesn’t seem to mind!

  1. This is such a pretty card Susan. The colors are lovely together, the background so stunning. Add the nested sentiment… Lovely. That pumpkin pic is soooo darling, despite the slimy chair


  2. I’m so glad I read your post BEFORE I started searching for that beautiful paper. WOW! I love the effect you got with those soft colors. Layering the two die-cut leaves was a brilliant idea. And what an adorable picture. Olivia looks like she’s enjoying the pumpkin seat. She sounds a lot like my Jonathan. When he was ready to eat, there was no putting him off! Enjoy every second!!


  3. You created such a beautiful background on this card! It’s a perfect compliment to the sentiment and leaf die cut. I don’t know what it is with parents & sticking their kids in pumpkins – it seems to be the latest ‘thing’! But Olivia doesn’t seem to mind a bit – such a cutie!! 🙂
