My project today showcases one of the new Fall stamp sets. It is the Hello Harvest Bundle and is perfect for anything Fall!
Stamp Set and Dies
This card has a few different things of interest. But since the star of the show is the stamp and die bundle, we will will start there. This is the Hello Harvest Bundle. It contains the Hello Harvest Stamp set and the Rustic Pumpkin Die set. Both are great alone or together. My favorite of them are the ones used on today’s card. They are the pumpkin with the sunflowers on top. It is as if we were using the pumpkin as a vase.
Both the pumpkin and the sunflowers were stamped using Early Espresso Ink and then colored with Stampin’ Blends. The Pumpkin didn’t really require any coloring. And the extra single leaf is included in both the stamp set and the die set. Adding the single leaf was to pull more of the Poppy Parade color into the layers.
DSP and Fold
The DSP of this card is a perfect match to the stamps. Between the colors and the images you could not find a better pairing. And the best part of this paper is that it is FREE! Yes, it is one of the Sale-A-Bration choices. The Rings of Love Designer Series Paper not only coordinates wit the Rings of Love stamp set in the Mini Catalog, but is also one of the SAB items. With a $50.00 order you can choose this as a Free gift.
The fold I have used looks similar to a Book Fold, but opens fully. The DSP piece is simply added behind the 1″ front flap. It allows for you to see the reverse side of the DSP when the card is opened. And to get more pieces from a 12 X 12 piece of DSP it is cut 4 X 5 1/2. That is only 1/2″ less than normal but gets you two additional pieces from a 12X12 sheet. The addition of the ribbon covers the inside of the card where the DSP and card flap meet. This allows for a “cleaner” finish.
Were you wondering what I used to create the pretty details on the Pumpkin background layer? It is really pretty and quite different from any corner makers we have. Best of all is that this came from a punch! It is the new Very Best Trio Punch. The punch was all that I used, but it comes as a Bundle with the Very Best Occasions Stamp set. The set is only sentiments and has a variety. We all love punches and great sentiments, or at least I do. So this is a must have from the Mini Catalog in my opinion.
