Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop | Thankful Painted Harvest

Hello, Hello. Here's to Friday, well here in Melbourne it is, the start of the weekend and to another Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop.  You are currently visiting me, Rochelle, in Melbourne, Australia and today we are bringing you creations using the Painted Harvest Stamp Set. Oh pretty!

It's got that Autumn or Fall feel with a watercolour look, without the all the work of actual water colouring. No colouring, just stamping! Yay!

I've gone for a rustic feel for my creations today. I do tend to love the rustic look and today is no exception. I've made shadow box frame, for a fun home decor piece, and a matching card. Just search in Pinterest and on You Tube, there are lots of tutorials on how to make the shadow box frame.

How gorgeous are those sunflowers from the set. These are part of a two-step stamping process where two stamps layer on top of each other to create the one image. I'm loving the 'yellow' look to the sunflower but also the 'deep red' look too. Gorgeous.

For the 'yellow' sunflower I  used So Saffron for the lighter layer and then Crushed Curry on top. For the 'Deep Red' sunflower the lighter layer is Cherry Cobbler, stamped off and then on the top Cherry Cobbler full strength.

How good are the Painted Harvest images teamed up with the Wood Textures DSP stack. The Wood Textures DSP really adds to that rustic look that I love and just another gorgeous element on its own.

While the sunflower I fussy cut out with the Fabulous Stampin' Up! Paper Snips, the leaf image has a co-ordinating punch. Definitely makes it easy just to punch out the images like that, that's for sure. Love it! Get the Painted Harvest Stamp Set and the Leaf Punch in an bundle (#146021), at a bundle price and you'll save 10%. Winning!!!

To eliminate the words 'for you' from the sentiment stamp 'I am Thankful for you' stamp I put Washi Tape over the 'For You' before inking it up with Versamark Ink and then removed the washi tape before stamping it down.

By having this frame on display it my home, it reminds me to stop and to remember to be thankful. It's something that I need for myself to be reminded of rather than complaining and criticizing, which sometimes I'm a little to quick to do.

Now on to the Shannon in Canada and her oh so fabulous creations. I love the way she puts colour and elements together. She's just so good at it!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
