Painted Harvest Class – Thank you to all the lovely ladies who came to classes this week, we had a ball using the Painted Harvest stamp set to make 3 beautiful projects
The first card was very simple and started with us randomly stamping the ‘solid flower image’ in Crushed Curry ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. We added the more ‘detailed flower’ image over the top of the first image in Cajun Craze ink, love how the 2 step stamping brings the flower to life.
We then stamped the sentiment from the Banners for You stamp set in Chocolate Chip ink and at this point we decided whether we were doing a landscape or portrait version of the card. We then stamped the ‘flower centre’ using Chocolate Chip ink and filled in the white spaces using the ‘fern like leaf image’ and Pear Pizzazz ink.
We wrapped a piece of ⅛” Copper Trim around the stamped piece and tied it in a bow………..always a challenge….. We added a thin strip of Chocolate Chip cardstock along one edge with Tombow Liquid Adhesive and added the whole panel using the same glue to the front of a Thick Whisper White card base. To finish off we stamped the flower again on the inside of the card and the front of the envelope.
With the 2nd card we started by embossing a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder and the Big Shot. We added the embossed panel to a slightly larger piece of Crushed Curry cardstock using Tombow Liquid Adhesive and used the same glue to adhere the panel to a Cajun Craze card base.
We stamped the flower in exactly the same way as for the first card onto a scrap of Whisper White and die cut it using a circle die from the Stitched Shapes framelits. We also die cut a slightly larger scalloped circle from Cajun Craze cardstock using one of the Layering Circle dies. We then glued the 2 circles together with Tombow.
We stamped one of the leaf images in Always Artichoke ink onto Pear Pizzazz cardstock and punched them out using the Leaf Punch. These were added to the back of the Cajun Craze scalloped circle with Tombow.
We stamped the banner and the sentiment from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set using Chocolate Chip ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punched the banner out using the Duet Banner punch. This was added to the front of the stamped piece using Tombow. We added the whole piece to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Again to finish we stamped the flower onto the envelope and onto a layer of Whisper White cardstock which we added to the inside of the card using Tombow.
The 3rd card was a CHRISTMAS card……..I know, couldn’t resist sneaking one in. I got the idea for this card from Pinterest but I haven’t been able to identify who originally came up with the idea but I have put my own spin on it.
We stamped the ‘solid flower image’ randomly in Pear Pizzazz ink onto Pear Pizzazz cardstock and added the panel to a Thick Whisper White card base. We then stamped the solid flower onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock using Pear Pizzazz ink. We stamped the detailed layer in Always Artichoke ink and added the ‘berries’ in Cajun Craze ink. We stamped the sentiment from the Star of Light stamp set in Cajun Craze ink and then flagged the end of the Whisper White piece using scissors. We added some Gold Glimmer paper behind and sneakily we used a short piece, cut into two and stuck on at the top and the bottom with Tear & Tape….. no- one will ever know……..
We added the whole panel to the card front on Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a bow made from the ⅛” Copper Trim with a Mini Glue Dot before decorating the inside of the card and the envelope.
I hope you like the projects as much as the ladies did.
