If you like flowers and fall colors, the Harvest Meadow Suite is for you! Its shown on pages 54 – 56 in the July to December Mini Catalog. There are 7 samples shown that are all very different so just the catalog gives tons of ideas to spark creativity, let alone all of the awesome ideas that people share on social media. I love that Stampin’ Up! has a single part number that can be used to order the entire suite! If you love it all, it really saves time!
The card base is Mango Melody, used to pull out the color in the flowers. The Soft Sea Foam layer is 3 3/4″ x 5″ and is embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing folder which is part of the Harvest Meadow Suite. After embossing the raised side was highlighted with Soft Sea Foam ink by laying the paper onto an ink pad and gently pressing. It was then matted with a 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ piece of Early Espresso to create a frame.
The flower petals were colored first with Daffodil Delight and then over colored with Light Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. A bit of the yellow was left peeking out on the large flower but the rest was blended. The stems and leaves were colored with Light Old Olive and then a few shadows were added with Dark Old Olive and then blended in with Light Olive. The flower centers were done with Dark Soft Suede.
Did you notice the cork layer? Yes, it is really cork! On a sheet and it’s thin and easy to work with, YAY! They come 12″ x 12″ and there are 2 pieces in a pack. This strip is 1″ x 3 3/4″.
The greeting is stamped in Early Espresso onto a tag cut with the Harvest Dies which are part of the Suite. There are two dies which cut out the flower images from the stamp set, two labels and four dies which cut out beautiful flower silhouettes.
Hope you enjoyed this card. The Wright County Fair starts tomorrow in Howard Lake, Minnesota. If you happen to be there, be sure to stop by my booth and say hello. I have tons of cards for sale! What does a card maker do when on Covid lock down? Make cards of course. So I have a double batch on hand.
