For today’s project I have another card using the Painted Harvest stamp set, I was inspired by looking at Poinsettia’s and was originally going to make a Christmas card, however when I added the Pear Pizzazz card base I felt it would be better as a birthday card.

Painted Harvest was one of those sets that passed me by on my initial looks through the Autumn/Winter catalogue but once I started seeing projects made by other demonstrators and customers I realised it’s definitely one I needed to have a play with. I think I was put off by this set because I’m not a huge fan of yellow so sunflowers aren’t my favourite flower. After having a good play around with this set I can say that most combinations of colours work well, even the purples like on this card.
To make this card I took a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock measuring 10cm x 14cm and sponged over it with Crumb Cake ink to give an aged look. Next I took the first sunflower stamp, the one with less detail and stamped randomly over my card in Sweet Sugarplum. I then stamped over these with the more detailed sunflower in Fresh Fig. I’m not entirely sure its lined up properly but I love how these flowers look. For the centres and the dotted detail I used Soft Suede. I added a few random dots with old olive to fill in the gaps.
The sentiment label was created from the blank label in Label Me Pretty. I used an Old Olive marker to ink just around the edge, so I didn’t have the extra swirls. I used Fresh Fig to stamp the greeting and the Pretty Label punch to cut out.
I added three rows of the Fresh Fig Sheer Ribbon for somewhere to ground the greetings label.
I also decorated the inside of the card with a couple more flowers. I really love how this card turned out, probably because its using my favourite colour Fresh Fig. I can’t wait to show you what else I’ve created with this set.
