Fun with new stamps!

A couple of weeks ago I got a box full of new stamps from Stampin' Up! In my attempt to try them all out, I found that I got stuck - well not stuck, just really happy and wanting to use - the same set over and over. Well, I took a break and put my Pocket Silhouettes away so I could try out the Season of Friendship stamp set. I am loving how versatile it is and since it comes with little leaves, a flower and snowflake - the possibilities are endless.  This is the first of many cards I plan on making with the cute set!

I made clouds on the Bashful Blue cardstock using the leftovers of a scallop circle punch and a sponge dauber with Whisper White. I added a little Going gray to the edge of the dauber to get a little depth to the coluds. Then I tore the Old Olive cardstock to make the ground. The rest is pretty simple after that. Enjoy!
