Greetings my stamping friends. I had a very productive day “working” in my office today. I actually did do none stamping tasks in preparation for an event this coming week (also none stamping related). I hope you all had a safe and productive weekend as well.
Today’s project share uses four products that are retiring on June 2, 2020 — all are available only while supplies last — Love What You Do stamp set, Painted Harvest stamp set, the Leaf Punch and the Clear Faceted Gems. Let me know what you think.
The Painted Harvest stamp set is one of the “dist-ink-tive” sets which is intended to look water-colored when stamped. For best results, your ink pads should not be overly saturated with ink and be sure to use a foam mat to make sure the photopolymer stamp transfers the ink from the stamp completely. I used four different ink colors to create my sunflower — for the largest stamp, I stamped once in Daffodil Delight first. I turned the stamp 90 degrees then stamped with Crushed Curry. For the smaller stamp, I stamped once in Mango Melody. I turned the stamp 90 degrees and then stamped with Crumb Cake. For the flower center I stamped with Crumb Cake once and then turned the stamp approximately 90 degrees and stamped a second time. I used Early Espresso for the flower center dots. I stamped the leaves with Mossy Meadow and punched them out the with coordinating punch. I stamped the fronds with Mossy Meadow as well. When adding the leaf punched pieces, I cut a small slit into the card so that I could slip the stems through and secured them with a mini glue dot on the back and front.
Here are the Stampin’ Up! products that I used in the design of this card with those handy hyperlinks that will allow you to add these items to your shopping cart:Product List

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper. Until next time, stamp on my friends.
