Stampin’ Up!’s Holiday Catalogue has a multitude of stamp sets, designer series paper (DSP) and embellishments. One of my favourites from the catalogue is the Painted Autumn Suite, which includes the Painted Harvest stamp set, coordinating Leaf Punch and Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. I LOVE the watercolour look of the stamp set.
I paired the stamp set and DSP with the Timeless Textures stamp set to bring you this beautiful card and complimenting gift box.
To create this card I stamped the sunflower image on scrap paper in Daffodil Delight and Crumb Cake inks, the centre was stamped in Soft Suede ink. Then ‘fussy cut’ out the image (my husband laughs at the term ‘fussy cut’, he said he’ll use the term next time he goes to the hairdresser, just to see what happens!).
Once again on scrap paper I stamped the leaves in Garden Green (3) and Old Olive ink (2) and cut them using the Leaf Punch.
On the card matt I used the Timeless Textures stamp set to create a border. One was stamped in Daffodil Delight, the other in Crumb Cake ink and the ‘splotches’ stamp from the set also in Crumb Cake ink.
I cut a 1″ (2½cm) strip from one of the papers in the Autumn Harvest DSP set and adhered it the to card matt approx 3/4″ (2cm) from the bottom. Using double sided tape, I attached a strip of Burlap Ribbon, cut at an angle over the DSP. Then attached a strip of the Gold Mini Sequin Trim on top of the Burlap Ribbon.
I then played around with the sunflower and leaf placement, when satisfied, stamped extra foliage from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Wild Wasabi ink directly to the card matt. Finally attaching the leaves and sunflower in the placement I had chosen. The sentiment is from the Blooms & Wishes stamp set stamped in Soft Suede ink.
To continue the theme, I stamped the sunflower inside the card and also on the envelope.
Having so much fun creating the card, I decided to create a little gift box, using the Autumn Harvest DSP to go with the card, using the envelope punch board.
DSP 6 x 6″ (15.3 x 15.3cm)
Line up the paper at 2-3/8″ (6cm), punch and score, slide the paper to the 3-3/8″ mark, punch and score again, rotate paper lining the score marks up with the guide, punch and score on remaining three sides. Fold and burnish on score lines and you have your box.
I created a belly band to go over the box using the under side of the DSP and added the same features as the card to the band, so they compliment each other.
