Painted Harvest Wreath

The Painted Autumn product suite is one of my favorites in the holiday catalog! It really captures the beauty of autumn. The sunflower image in the Painted Harvest stamp set has been used to create some gorgeous cards! I think my Pinterest boards have captured many! I have also seen some very creative ways to use the images like making a wreath!  I thought it was such a clever idea that I had to create a fall wreath first. But I definitely plan to use this set to make some Christmas cards too! Let’s take a look at how to make this card.

To make this card, start with a piece of Early Espresso cardstock for the base of the card. Cut a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamp a little sentiment on the bottom using Early Espresso ink. Once you have stamped your sentiment, place the upper part of the Very Vanilla cardstock in the Layered Leaves embossing folder (be sure to leave the sentiment hanging out of the bottom of the embossing folder) and then send it through the embossing machine. Cut a 2 x 4 inch piece of one of the patterns from the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper pack and adhere it to the card just above the sentiment. Cut out a few different sized layering squares, one from Very Vanilla cardstock and one from Early Espresso cardstock. Stamp the layering sunflower images (two of them), from the Painted Harvest stamp set, in the center of the Very Vanilla square using Crushed Curry ink. Stamp a few “berries” Cajun Craze ink. I used the Holly Builder Punch and the Holly Berry Happiness to create the bow but it would look just as pretty if you used some coordinating ribbon. I hope you enjoyed this little project!

Patterned Pumpkins

Hello Stampin’ Friends! Hope you are having a fabulous week! Yesterday I shared a sneak peek, on my Facebook page, of all of the pieces I cut to create today’s project. But I didn’t create just one card….I created 15 of them as part of a Thanksgiving Themed Swap with members of my stampin’ team!  I was so excited with how they turned out that I just had to share it with all of you!

The project showcases the die cuts from the Patterned Pumpkin set. I love the fall season so I was attracted to this set as soon as I saw it.  Plus it works well with the sentiment from the Painted Harvest set. To created this card, I started with a piece of thick Very Vanilla cardstock. I stamped the Hardwood background on the upper part of the card front using Crumb Cake ink. Notice that I left a little spot for the sentiment on the bottom. I recommend stamping your sentiment first so that you know how to stamp the hardwood image. Then, I simply cut out a variety of different fall images from the Patterned Pumpkin die set.  I used some of the fun Foil Frenzy DSP, Gold GLimmer Paper as well as Copper Foil. Then embellished it with a few Touches of Nature wood elements. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!
