Many people have asked me what the Best stamp set in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog is and believe it or not right now I am in love with Painted Harvest.
Painted Harvest has quickly become the BEST Stamp Set in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog because I can adapt this set to almost any occasion; from Birthday to Christmas. Below you will see some of the Thank you cards I created in just minutes.
One stamp set, two colors – 4 cards in 15 minutes.
I pre- cut all my pieces as follows:
Card Bases: 3 Whisper White and one out of Daffodil Delight (8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″) – Score at 4-1/4
Top Layered Pieces: 3 Whisper White layered pieces – 5-1/4″ x 4″ and 1 Whisper White at 3-3/4″ x 5
Early Espresso Layer: 5-1/4″ x 4″
Scrap Paper: Whisper White paper to stamp and punch sunflower and leaves for one card. NOTE: Leaves are punched out.
Top right card is simple to create using the 2-step Painted Harvest Sunflower stamp. First stamp the larger image using Daffodil Delight on the bottom left of card layer followed by the smaller image also inked in Daffodil Delight. No need to stamp off any ink first. They stamps will create a beautiful water color image of a sunflower. Stamp your center and 3 dots with Early Espresso. Sentiment also stamped in Early Espresso.
The bottom left card I used the smaller Sunflower image and stamped repeatedly the right corner with out re-inking the stamp. I did this a few times until I was satisfied with the way it looked. Stamp the three dot a few times to the top of where the flower images end and stamp your sentiment in Early Espresso.
The other two cards were stamped the same way after I masked off a center strip so that i was left with a white band to stamp in after. The top right card I stamped the flower image and leaves on scrap Whisper White and fussy cut the flower out and punched the leaves. The bottom left card I stamped the Sunflower image directly on the white space as well as the sentiment. Add a few Glitter Enamel dots (item #144200 – pg #196 annual catalog) to bottom right card. After adhering all layers you have 4 completed cards in no time!
Change up your sentiments and you could change these to any occasion cards!
