Hello stampers! Have you seen all the amazing cards out there using Painted Harvest? What a beautiful stamp set this is. I have seen so many different versions of the sunflowers, so I decided to make a card with the nuts. Nuts? Yup. There’s an acorn in that set and I don’t think it has been given its due. Using stamps to make pretty background paper is a lot of fun, so that is what I have done with this first card. I used the acorn, the leaves and the stipple stamp to make this nice effect. What do you think?
Another stamp set that pairs well with Painted Harvest is the Burlap background stamp. If you ink up the stamp using a sponge you get a more subtle effect that lends itself to stamping images right on it. The sunflower was stamped with crushed curry and cajun craze with an early espresso centre. The saying is from Cool Treats.
The last card also uses the technique of stamping over a background image. You could use patterned paper, but this is the Sheet Music background stamp. I also used a sponge and crumb cake ink to gently ink up this stamp. I totally cased this card from the talented Linda Dalke from Australia.
I used marina mist and night of navy on this card as well as the new Everyday Label punch from the holiday catalog (page 12)
