Painted Harvest was one of my favorite seasonal stamps sets last year. So I was really pleased when it returned in the Annual Catalog. Although I created a card with a definite Fall feel, this set is much more versatile and can be used to create year-round.
I love these sunflowers and the two step stamping allows you to create so many beautiful color combinations. I choose the combination of Crushed Curry / Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry / Calypso Coral for the flowers here. The leaves are also a two step combination. However, I only used Pear Pizzazz ink.
The flowers were hand cut with paper snips and the leaves were easily punched using the Leaf Punch. After adhering the sunflowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals, I tucked the leaves behind them with a little glue. The sentiment panel is also popped with Dimensionals.
I wrapped some Linen Thread around the Early Espresso and DSP layer before gluing it to the card base, but with all the flowers and leaves it seemed to get lost!
I thought this pattern from the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper collection was the perfect backdrop to the vibrant sunflowers.
I left the inside blank with just a bit of DSP to include a personal note of thanks. Again, the envelope is simply embellished with a scrap of DSP.
I think creating this card has finally put me in a Fall frame of mind. I just wish our weather would get on board now!
Thanks for stopping by today.
