Four Seasons - Hostess Set

Did you know that you don't have to host a party to qualify for the Hostess Benefits?  If you and a group of friends get together to place an order of £150 or more or if you have a huge wish list yourself then you can still qualify for the hostess benefits. A £150 order means that you will have £25 to spend on any product in the Catalogues or you can use it to purchase any of the specially priced Hostess only sets (stamp sets or designer series paper).

The new Annual Catalogue has 6 stamp sets to choose from (see pages 196 to 201 inc) and today I am featuring a card that I have made using the Four Seasons stamp set (£18 for wood mount and £14 for clear mount).

The set consists of 8 stamps and the clear mount stamp set comes in 2 cases. It can be used with the coordinating 1" circle and 2-3/8" scallop circle punches. Quick tip for you - when looking through the catalogue a number of the images will have a blue line around them. This means that there is a matching punch that can be used on that image. If the line is red, then there is a coordinating die to match.

I decided to make my card a little bit more contemporary by using blues instead of the more traditional reds and greens of Christmas. The base card is made from Baja Breeze and I also used one of the new In Colors, Midnight Muse. You can't see too clearly from the photo but the background on the Midnight Muse has been stamped using the new Illuminate ink pad and I also sponged the small bird in the centre with the Illuminate too.
