Sneak Peek - Painted Harvest

I wanted to share with you my favourite (at least at the moment) stamp set from the Holiday Catalogue that is coming your way on September 1st.  I just love the image from this set - doesn't seem to matter what colour is used.

For this card, I decided to try out a technique that I've been seeing on lots of blogs and Pinterest posts.  I'm not sure what it's called, but I love it.

I love how it turned out!


  1. Score Early Espresso Card Stock (5 1/2" x 8 1/2") at 4 1/4" and fold in half to make card base. 
  2. Stamp flower image in 3 places on Whisper White cardstock (4 x 5 1/4"). The is a 2 step process - stamp first with Daffodil Delight ink and then stamp with second image using Crushed Curry. For the middle image, mask over the image on the right hand side using a cut out stamped flower image.
  3. Stamp solid leaves using Pear Pizzazz and then stamp over them with the patterned image in Old Olive.
  4. Stamp centre of flower using Early Espresso.
  5. Using Large Letter dies, centre the letters on the stamped card stock. Since I needed to cut 2 "L's", I cut the last "L" along with the "F" and the "A" and then went back and cut the middle "L" as a second step.
  6. Adhere the stamped piece of card stock to the Crushed Curry card stock using Snail.
  7. Using regular sized and mini Dimensionals, adhere the cut out letters over top of the letter holes.
  8. Adhere a piece of Old Olive ribbon to the bottom front. Tie a knot around ribbon using Linen Thread.
  9. Adhere Crushed Curry card stock piece to front of card.
