Painted Harvest

August 12, 2017

I have been creating a lot of cards using the Carols of Christmas stamp set and co-ordinating products but thought I would share a card I made using the Painted Harvest stamp set from the soon to be released Holiday Catalogue.  The stamp set seems to be primarily aimed at Thanksgiving which we do not celebrate here in Australia.  However, it is such a beautiful flower and the leaves and co-ordinating punch are just so fantastic.  Soooo, I was inspired by a card I saw on the Demonstrator Facebook Page to create a version of the cards created by Mieke Op T Hof from the Netherlands.

There are two images to create the leaves and petals for this flower.  I started by stamping the first image onto Whisper White card in Crushed Curry and stamped the second image over the top using Pumpkin Pie ink.  I stamped the flower centre using Early Espresso ink.  I stamped the leaves onto the Whisper White card using Old Olive ink which I stamped off first and then stamped twice without re-inking.  I stamped the greeting from the Window Shopping stamp set onto Crumb Cake card using Early Espresso ink.  I punched one end of the Crumb Cake card using the Triple Banner Punch.  I stamped the solid leaf onto Whisper White card using Old Olive ink which I had stamped off first.  I stamped the detailed leaf over the top using Old Olive ink and punched them out using the matching Leaf Punch.  The banner is attached to the card front using dimensionals with the punched out leaves tucked underneath.  The stamped card is attached the Crumb Cake card and then scored and folded Early Espresso card.

To decorate the inside of the card I stamped the flower using the same inks and once more stamped the leaves.

Now that I have started playing with this set, I think it is going to be hard to stop.  I love the detail of the image and can’t wait to play with more colour combinations.  I think this one kind of looks like a Sunflower, don’t you?

Bye for now,
