Hi friends! Colors can effect moods. You can take the same image and color it with pastels for a new baby card or jewel tones for a birthday. You can also take the same stamp set and swap out colors and accent images to apply to different seasons like I did today! These cards feature the Woodland Harvest Stamp set, one of the 5 stamp sets I designed for Rubber Stamp Tapestry!
Here he have the fall version…
…and here is the spring!
Watch the video to see how to make the fall card while picking up some tips for coloring and die cutting. The spring card is made in the same way just using the tree stamp (branches only) for a frame.

Before you go I have a quick question for you
Now that I have hubby editing my videos I can have him edit more out and make them shorter. I realize that 30 minutes is a lot to ask of you to watch a video. So please honestly let me know if you prefer the longer videos like today or an under 10 minute video or if you would like me to alternate long and short tutorials. You won’t hurt my feelings. I just want to make the most useful lessons I can for you! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
