At last that day has arrived. The day when customers can finally order from the Stampin’ Up! 2018 Holiday Catalogue. Woo hoo. I have a feeling that Stampin’ Up!’s warehouse is going to be working at full capacity today.
I’m sure you’re really keen to see the new Holiday Catalogue so I have a really simple project for you today. This one uses a stamp set that debuted in last year’s Holiday Catalogue, Painted Harvest. I was so glad to see it carry over into the 2018/2019 Annual Catalogue.
I began with a piece of Very Vanilla Card and using Mango Melody ink, stamped the first sunflower image. Then, again with Mango Melody ink, stamped the second sunflower image over the top to add the details.
The center was stamped using Soft Suede ink that I’d first ‘stamped-off’ onto scrap paper. This gives a lighter tone that I felt worked better with the petals.
The sentiment also comes from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set and was stamped using Soft Suede ink at full strength,
Keeping it simple I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) to attach the stamped piece onto some Mango Melody Card.
The Soft Suede Card base was cut and scored using a Stampin’ Trimmer. I folded the card along the scored line and sharpened the crease with a Bone Folder. Then the layered image was added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On another layer of Very Vanilla Card I stamped the same sunflower image across the bottom right-hand corner. This was then fixed inside the card base with liquid glue.
Finally I stamped another sunflower across the bottom right-hand corner on the front of a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope.
My project was finished in no time at all.
I really like the color combination on this card, it’s perfect for fall-themed projects don’t you think?
