1 stamp - 4 seasons


It's Tuesday again and that means a new challenge from our talented DT guru - Suzanne!
This time she wants us to show versatility with the E Bell Ornament serie for SCACD. I really love these and it was so much fun to force yourself to think outside the box - if you know what I mean. Well - I decided that I wanted to show you how you can use 1 stamp for all 4 seasons. I wanted to use the 3 French Hens stamp - so here we go:


Could not make a card without using the Basic Grey Lemonade Papers ;-)
I changed the leaves in her hair to be flowers - hence hey are blue. Added the sentiment Too cute from SU, ribbons from my stash, roses and Bella Baubles. I think she looks just as sweet as candy - and talking of candy - still had some left in matching colours :-)

Here you have her dressed in the Fall colours. Used DPs from my stash and my new leaf punch - loving it :-). Sentiment is a Susanament.


Here you have a card saying Merry X-mas in Swedish (sentiment from Aud design).
I wanted to make the image look like a real X-mas Ornament in glass. Therefore I used the
technique cracked glass. Have never done that before - but it was a lot of fun. Not sure if you can tell from the pic though. Used DPs from my stash and added a ribbon.

Well - I hope you like my projects and get the inspiration to use these adorable images in many, many different ways. So you see - 1 stamp can be used for 4 seasons ;-) Have a great week and check out the rest of the DTs cards/projects.

Kram - Anki
PS. Sorry - I see that I made some ink run on one of the cards....just my typical luck......
