A Triple Play

No, not talking about what the Tiger did to the Yankees, but close!
Today, I have three diverse cards for you.
They cover three of the four seasons - Autumn, Winter and Spring!

Now, you might be wondering why....easy answer: I saw a design team call and thought I would give it a try. And, in doing so decided I needed a bit of diversity in my finished creations. Although, the more I look at them, the less diverse they seem. Make sure you check out fun 'n' flair and see the cute Christmas stamps I "need"!!

First up is one of my favorite PKS sets - Build a Scarecrow. I love showcasing this set with the crisscross card! I have pulled out the insert so you can better see Mr. Scarecrow!


The sentiment is from Close To My Heart (Seasonal Celebrations), the card stocks and papers are from Michael's - their Recollections line. I used one of the Animal Print embossing folders from Sizzix on the eaves which I die cut using the large leaf trio from amuse studio. I stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa and Tuxedo Black, highlighted with CTMH Brown Bag and colored with chalks and Bic MarkIts.

Next, Winter Ella.....a favorite Puddle Jumper from By LORi Designs!


She was stamped with Tuxedo Black, colored with Copic's and Bic's I followed the current sketch at deconstructed jen DS74 using Recollections card stock and papers from Me & My Big Ideas and EP's Everyday Eclectic. Buttons and string from my stash. Oh, I used Deckled Edge Classic Oval that was embossed with Swiss Dots.

And last, but not least, to celebrate Spring here is a bookmark showcasing Wishing You Luck, an a la mode from MFT.


Everything on this came from my stash! Gotta love {LOVE} that! Once again colored with my Bic's and stamped in Tuxedo Black. I kept this flat....it is a bookmark after all! The only embellishment is a lone crystal.

I hope you have enjoyed my triple play!

Thanks for stopping by!
HUGGZ,
April

GO TIGERS!
