Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons card for #GDP183


I love playing along with the Global Design Project challenges and don’t do it often enough!

Global Design Project 183 | Theme Challenge

This week’s Theme Challenge really got my creative juices flowing though. I’d better not tell my 12 year old Son that I didn’t choose to do a theme park because he is obsessed with rides, lol!

We are blessed with so many beautiful parks in our town and one of my favourites is just a five minute walk from my house.

In every season there are new and beautiful flowers or tree colours to look at. From daffodils to bluebells to rhododendron and so much more.

The blossom is just coming out now and that’s what inspired my card.

The Colorful Seasons bundle is great for creating cards for, well, all seasons!

Retreat day fun

Hi all

A couple of weeks ago I held my first mini retreat with my Stampin’ Up! buddy, Carol.

We used the Colorful Seasons bundle which was perfect to create lots of different projects.

We wanted to make sure our retreat guest felt special and looked after so we had some extra treats for everyone!

The Mini Pizza Boxes were perfect for some homemade cookies and the Striped Treat bags were given as ‘Grown up’ Party favours, so much fun 🙂

The retreat cost included everything below and some Ladies chose to take advantage of the discounted price and ordered the Colorful Seasons Bundle which includes the dies.

Product List

One of our lovely ladies celebrated her birthday on the day.


Lunch and homemade cakes were also served but we’ve only got a picture of the scrummy chocolate cake above.

Lots of chatting, crafting and laughter.

This is a small selection of the projects we designed, everyone had their own copy of full instructions.

Don’t worry if you missed it this time, subscribe to my newsletter to be notified of all future events.
