Welcome back to Stamping with Buffy, my friends! Today’s card may look a little familiar to you. When I prepare for a class, I always make an extra packet or two, just in case someone shows up unexpectedly. And, of course, I often have a last minute cancelation. That means I usually have leftover packets. I make the extras so I have more cards to send out, but sometimes, I change the card just a bit to make something a little different. And that’s what I did here.
You may remember this card that I posted a couple of weeks ago. I used most of the same “parts” to create today’s Nature’s Harvest card.
I changed the card base, embossing folder, and colors on the Designer Series Paper (DSP). Instead of a Crushed Curry card base, I used Pale Papaya. It’s much more subtle, I think. And, instead of blending Cinnamon Cider Classic Ink on the DSP with a Blending Brush, I used Pale Papaya with a Mossy Meadow Shadow. I traded the stitching from the Stitched Leaves Dies to the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder on the Cinnamon Cider Cardstock layer. And, finally, instead of using one of the Gorgeous Leaves, I used the trio of flowers from the Nature’s Harvest Stamp Set.
I love this stamp set! I stamped the flowers using Soft Suede Classic Ink. I knew that would work well for the flowers and, since I was planning on coloring using Stampin’ Blends, it wouldn’t smear. I used Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends for the stems, leaves, and “cones,” then used a blend of Daffodil Delight and Pale Papaya for the petals. This is one reason I love using Stampin’ Blends. You can blend several colors together to get a brand new color, and they blend beautifully. I used the Harvest Dies to die-cut the flowers. (You know what I’m going to say now, right?) If you order the Nature’s Harvest Bundle (stamp set and dies), you’ll save 10% over the price of purchasing them separately.
Finally, I “tousled” the Linen Thread behind the flowers before adhering them to the DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals. And, actually, I think this is from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack that was on my table, not Linen Thread. True confession: I’m horrible at putting things away, especially if they’re almost empty. I had used a lot of the Baker’s Twine, and the roll was almost gone, so I just left it out in plain sight so I’d remember to use it. And, well, there it is!
So there you go – (mostly) the same products, but different colors and stamps to create a different look. The Nature’s Harvest Bundle and the Timeworn Type Embossing Folder are from the July-December Mini Catalog. They may carry over after the mini retires January 3, 2022, but they may not, so order them while you can just to be safe!
Please check back on Friday to see Susan’s, Jackie’s, and my favorite products from the July-December Mini Catalog. I am over the moon excited about my project and I can’t wait to see Jackie’s and Susan’s.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
