Today I’ve beenat my daugthers harvest assembly and they were singing the song “Autumn Days” which reminded me of the Painted Harvest stamps set, so i rushed home, pulled it out and here’s what I created.
For the sunflowers I used a base layer of So Saffron and then stamped over with two layers of Pumpkin Pie to make them exra bright and sunny. The middles are Soft Suede with dots of Early Espresso. I added a little Granny Apple Green on my stamped panel simply because I wanted to use the Textured Weave Ribbon in the same colour.
I ran the stamped panel through the Subtle 3D Embossing folder at add a little textue and then mounted this on a matt of Soft Suede and then a matt of Granny Apple Green.
I finished the card off with a greeting stamped over a small Stitched Oval.
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.
