Stampin’ Up! Painted Autumn Harvest

Well, today is the day you have all been waiting for, the 2017 Holiday Catalog goes live!!  I’m sharing the long anticipated Painted  Autumn Designer series paper, paired with the oh so awesome Painted Harvest stamp set bundle. You cannot go wrong with this suite of items for your fall  projects.  Don’t wait too long to order, I am sure it will be a favorite of many!

This Painted Autumn DSP is loaded with so many rich fall colors, and the paper, well, it speaks for itself.   I let it make my card quick and easy for today.

A panel of Very Vanilla was adhered to Early Expresso with liquid glue.   Next, a thin strip of Early Expresso was added to the right side of the Painted Autumn DSP and both adhered to the Very Vanilla panel.  A length of Linen Thread was wrapped around the large panel three times and secured to the back with tape.

The sentiment was stamped in Versa Mark ink, sprinkled with Copper Emboss powder and heat embossed until smooth and shiny.  The Very Vanilla Stitched Shape oval was die cut and framed with a scalloped Early Expresso oval and then a little larger Crushed Curry oval then popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Two leaf images were stamped in Garden Green (the leaf outline stamp) and Lemon Lime Twist (the solid leaf stamp), and punched with the Leaf Punch.  One of the sunflowers from the Painted Autumn DSP was fussy cut with my Paper Snips.  I added the leaves with liquid glue and the sunflower with dimensionals.  A fun bow was created with more Linen Thread and the center of the bow pulled together with some of the  1/4″ Copper Trim.  Notice I pulled the ends of the Copper Trim apart to add some interest.  

If you look closely, you’ll see the sunflower I stamped peeking out from the inside Very Vanilla panel.  The rest of the panel was left blank for writing.

A complete list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts are at the end of my post.
