Join Lizzie Jones today as she shares how to take a stamp set geared towards a specific occasion and use it for many other occasions through out the year.

“There are some stamp sets that are designed to represent a particular season or holiday, but with a little creativity we can make those sets into year-round favorites! I thought it might be fun to challenge myself to create a series of all-season cards with the recent Winter Window set. I hope you’ll stop by my blog to see how a few clever stamp and die pairings make this set an essential for creating any time of year!”

    Really creative cards! I especially like the one for the 4th of July but I also like all the little touches on each card, such as the tulle curtains and the gourds on the windowsill. Thanks for the inspiration!

    These are great! I bought this set and had something like this in mind! Now I see your take it is just how I imagined it would be and better. Love all the other sets you have incorporated for the scale of the window. This took a lot hard work but I bet it was just bit of fun…thanks for that creative juice!
