I adore this new Painted Harvest stamp set!  Actually the entire suite, but I am only using the stamp set for today’s card.  I know you have seen hundreds on Pinterest or other craft sites but I could not help myself in continuing to play with it.

Painted Harvest, 144783

 

For me, this card is very minimal.  I think that is a good change of ideas.  I focused on the wreath from Painted Harvest.  I stamped both stamps (it is a two step stamp) in Always Artichoke and both were full strength.  I then used the little dots that are intended as the center of the sunflower for my berries for the wreath.  And a little Linen Thread bow is all it needed for a cute and country looking wreath.

I cut out the Whisper White wreath piece with the Stitched Shapes largest square before I stamped.  Since the Painted Harvest set is photopolymer, it is so easy to center it on the paper.  The sentiment is from Star of Light stamp set.  This was my favorite set from last year and I was thrilled when it carried over into this annual catalog.

The DSP I used is from the Be Merry Designer Series Paper in the annual catalog.  I have already used one pack of that paper!  I debated on embossing the Always Artichoke layer but in the end just left it plain.  I like this simple look.
