Berry Branch – Spring & Summer

I have been busy on another project lately which I will share in the future but today I have a little set of cards I finished a while ago.  I made them for a friend’s birthday; there are four – one for each season- all made with the same stamp. Here are the spring and summer cards. Winter and autumn to follow another day.


Stamps: Berry Branch (Penny Black),Teeny Tiny Wishes(SU)
Inks: Regal Rose,  Bashful Blue, Always Artichoke
Cardstock: Flourishes classic white

To create both cards I inked the stamp with the lighter colour and added darker highlights with marker. I also masked and sponged but you know that; it is what I do!

    What a delightful set of cards! Your friend is sure to be thrilled. I love that although you’ve used the same stamp, you’ve changed the colors and the layout. Both cards are lovely, and I look forward to the fall and winter examples. Beautiful!

    What a fun idea — to use the same main image but cover the four seasons! The first two are beautiful, and so nice to see the spring and summer ones on a grey winter’s afternoon.

    Hello Heather, These are lovely and it is a terrific idea to get all four seasons from one stamp. I have been considering trying to do something similar with another PB stamp – one I like a lot – and your cards have given me the confidence to follow through with my idea sometime. Thanks for sharing. Elizabeth x
