Nature's Harvest Healing Thoughts

This card features products from the Harvest Meadow Suite on page 54 in the new Mini Catalog. 


I stamped the flower image with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with White embossing powder onto a piece of Basic White cardstock.  I ran the cardstock through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine with the new Typeworn Type embossing folder.  I used a blending brush with Mint Macaron ink to highlight the embossed image.  The flower was stamped with Memento black ink and colored with Stampin' Blends.  The greeting was inked with a Cajun Craze Stampin' Write Marker and stamped on Basic White cardstock.  Strips of Harvest Meadow DSP were added for extra color.  All the layers were added to a Cajun Craze cardbase.  I added a thin gold thread by cutting the edge of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon and pulling the threads apart.  The finishing touch is a Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dot.

Peace, Love, Joy

I love making Christmas cards in non-traditional Christmas colors.  My color inspiration for this card was the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper.  This DSP is a FREE Sale-a-Bration item with a $50 purchase (before tax and shipping).  This DSP also coordinates with the Penguin Place Bundle in the new Mini Catalog.


I used the Adorning Designs Decorative Masks to create Fresh Freesia snowflakes.  The snowflake was made using Fresh Freesia cardstock and Silver Foil Specialty Paper then popped out with the Gingerbread dies.  The greeting is from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set and cropped using the Seasonal dies.  I finished it off with a 2021-2023 In Color jewel in the center of the snowflake.

Have a wonderful day!

Sneak Peek - Nature's Harvest

I used products from the new Holiday Mini catalog for this card.  


I started with a piece of 4-1/4" x 11" Basic White Thick cardstock, scored at 5- 1/2" and folded to form my card base.  I added a piece of the new Nature's Harvest Designer Series Paper and also used this DSP with the Tailor Made Tags die.  The front tag and gold flower is from the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack.  The greeting is from the Nature's Harvest stamp set and was stamped with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  I used the coordinating Harvest dies to crop the greeting.  The stamp set and dies are offered as a bundle, saving you 10%.  I finished off the card with Gold Shimmer ribbon and Brushed Metallic Dots.

You order from the new Mini Catalog starting August 3rd.

Thanks for stopping by today!



I also used this DSP and the Tailor Made Tags dies to make
