Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Painted Harvest bundle


Welcome to  the Stamping Sunday blog hop, on the first Sunday of every month we all get together and showcase an item from the current catalogues. It could be a stamp set, a bundle or a whole suite

Today we are using the versatile Painted Harvest suite. 
It is my faveourite set of the new catalogue atm!
Do you have a faveourite yet?

This set is currently available in a bundle. I love bundles, they are just so awesome, because you get to save 10% percent of the purchase price when you buy these items as a bundle!
Who doesn't love to save!

You are currently here with me Kim Oliver, I will have a full list of participants closer to the end of this post  for you to keep finding inspiartion from.

here is my project for today.

THANK YOU GIFT SET




I have chosen to create a Thank you gift set, comprising of a card and note pad.
I have never made or even thought of making a notepad cover until Paula Dobson showed me how easy it was at her Paper Caper in New Zealand. Such a simple thing and so effective too!

Using the painted Harvest bundle I stamped the flowers randomly in Dapper Denim on a piece of thick whisper white card stock to create a background.
This was trimmed and then covered in vellum.
 I have a great tip for using vellum!
My card layers are Thick whisper white, Basic Gray and Whisper White for the front images then a vellum *overlay.. 

I used the Stitched Shapes framelits and the layering ovals to create the area  for the sentiment.
I fussy cut a stamped image and placed this in the bottom right corner of the card partially over the the oval also.


*My Tip

If you are reasonably proficient at using Fast Fuse or even Snail Adhesive use a small section/strip on the fast fuse in the corners of the vellum to attach it to the card stock below. It is barely visible!
 Make sure that you have no balls of adhesive at the tip of your applicator, as these will be visible.

For the note pad itself I created a cover to go over the front, top and a small section of the back. 
To do this I measured the size of the note pad and went from there.
I used a piece of thick Whisper White, Dapper Denim and a scrap piece of Basic Gray card stock to create my cover.
I stamped the images on the cover using the same inks as my card. For the note pad itself I only stamped the flower and only on every second sheet. This leaves a clean sheet of note paper for other purposes 😊

This is going to be a gift for a friend who has helped me out alot over the last few months and I want them to know that I appreciate them and all they do.

What I added to the design was the following

Basic Directions

  • Score the choc chip card stock at 14.8 cm then fold in half and cut at 10.5 cm.
  • Splatter Soft Sky and Dapper Denim ink over bottom right corner of the whisper white card stock.
  • Stamp the 2 step flower images in Dapper Denim with the centre images stamped in Sahara Sand and Chocolate Chip.
  • Fussy cut your flower image and set aside for a moment.
  • Stamp the 2 step leaf images in Lemon Lime Twist.
  • Adhere the the flower over the splatter and leaf images with dimensionals.
  • Tie the Linen thread around the white card stock and finish with a bow.
  • Adhere this to the Lemon Lime Twist striped DSP using Tear and Tape.
  • Then adhere the two layers to the Chocolate Chip card stock base.
  • Adhere the inside layers together and place inside the card using the multipurpose glue.
*This really is a very simple card to create with basic techniques of 2 step stamping, fussy cutting and masking for the small sentiment.
This would be perfect for a beginners or even intermediate class. You could even incorporate the stepping up technique to show how to dress up or down designs..

I know my groups are certainly looking forward to playing with this set.
