Painted Harvest- Gather Together and Give Thanks
Today I am sharing a card that I created using the Painted Harvest stamp set (Stampin’ Up! Holiday Mini Catalog) along with Timeless Textures. I also pulled out a few retired tools (Distressing Tool and Crimper Tool) along with some retired lace , hemp twine and button to complete the card :-)
I wanted to play along with the Fab Friday #123 Sketch Challenge and also incorporated the Hand Stamped Sentiments #275 Photo Inspiration Challenge (I was inspired by the sunflowers and Autumn colors) along with the Simon Says Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to check out the challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- tremendous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Ink the Sunflower petal #1 image from Painted Harvest with Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink, stamp off onto a piece of scrap paper and stamp onto a 4” x 5 ¼” panel of Very Vanilla cardstock. Rotate the petal and repeat the steps three times for each flower and stamp three flowers onto the panel.
2). Ink the Sunflower petal #2 image from Painted Harvest with Cajun Craze ink and stamp onto the petals created in step #1. Rotate the image and repeatedly stamp several times for each flower.
3). Ink the center of the flower image from Painted Harvest with Soft Suede Classic Ink and stamp several times in the center of the petals. Stamp the final time with Early Espresso Classic Ink.
4). Create a mask from sticky note paper for the flower petals, mask the flowers and stamp the solid leaf and fern images from Painted Harvest with Wild Wasabi Classic Ink. Stamp the detailed leaf image with Always Artichoke Classic Ink.
5). Distress the panel with a distressing tool and use a sponge dauber to apply Early Espresso Classic Ink over the edges and onto the background to “age” the paper. Add additional distressing with the small splatter stamp from Timeless Textures using Early Espresso Classic Ink.
6). Mount the distressed/stamped panel onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock, distress the edges and mount onto the Always Artichoke card front. Adhere the entire card front onto the white card base.
7). Use a crimper tool to crimp scrap pieces of Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze cardstock, cut into a banner, distress the edges and sponge with Early Espresso cardstock. Mount the banners at the top right hand corner (per the sketch) and add the twine bow with the Pumpkin Pie button detail.
8). De-static a scrap piece of Early Espresso cardstock with an Embossing Buddy®, stamp the sentiment from Painted Harvest using Versamark™ ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool. Trim the panel, add a piece of retired Venetian Crochet Lace and mount onto the card front with dimensional foam.
