It's so simple making cards thru the seasons. To jump start the challenge, I used the same sketch for all my cards. Last week we used the Wonderous Wreath Bundle to make 7 Different Seasonal Cards. This week we'll focus on a sketch and a Color Challenge.
Let's start our Card Parade with an Autumn Card. This year we have a bumper crop of acorns here in the Midwest, so I thought I would focus on the acorn from the Autumn Accents Bigz Die. I used the Banner Framelits to make my banners. You'll notice that I extended the banners to make them larger. To do this, slip a strip of paper inside the framelit pulling the flat or top edge over the top of the framelit so that it doesn't cut the paper at the top.
Card Supplies: For All Things Stamps; Autumn Accents Bigz Dies & Banner Framelits; Designer Series Paper stack in Regals, Neutrals and Brights; Cajun Craze & Crushed Curry Ink; Baked Brown Sugar Thick Baker's Twine; Crushed Curry & Baked Brown Sugar Card Stock
Next Up, a Winter Card. I changed up the stamps, punches and dies for each season. For the Winter/Christmas Card I used the White Christmas and the That's the Ticket Stamps. The featured punch is the Duo Ticket Punch. I have to admit I had a hard time working in the Island Indigo, but I was pleased with my Island Indigo and Kraft tickets. The "Brrr" is a Framelit from the Snowflake Card Thinlit Dies.
Card Supplies: White Christmas & That's the Ticket stamps; Duo Ticket Punch & Snowflake Card Thinlit Dies; Kraft, Whisper White and Lost Lagoon card stock; All is Calm Designer Washi Tape; Island Indigo & Tuxedo Black Ink; Lost Lagoon Satin Ribbon, Cherry Cobber Baker's Twine and Venetian Crochet Trim; Old Olive, Smoky Slate and Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities; Very Vintage Buttons
A Spring Time Card. For my spring card I focused on the Kinda Eclectic stamps & my Elegant Butterfly Punch.

You Make My Heart Go Boom Boom Summer Card-June is often thought of as the Wedding month, so I thought I would do a "My Heart Goes Boom Boom Card for summer. I featured the Groovy Love stamps and the Sweetheart Punch.
Card Supplies: Groovy Love Stamps; Sweetheart Punch; Subtles, Brights & 2014-2016 In Color Designer Series Paper Stacks; Whisper White & Blushing Bride card stock; Mossy Meadow Ink; Brights Designer Buttons & Candy Dots; Whisper White Baker's Twine
See how easy peasy it is to stretch across the season to make cards.
I used the same Mojo Monday Sketch for all 4 cards
