Painted Harvest - Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Hello friends!  Welcome to beautiful Calgary, Alberta, Canada for another fabulous Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop!  My name is Shannon, and I'm so pleased you're joining us today.  Whether you're coming from Rochelle's blog or starting with me - welcome!  Enjoy the show!  

Today's project focus is the Painted Harvest stamp set and coordinating Leaf Punch.  I've seen a TON of this stamp set on social media, and since everything has been focusing on that incredible sunflower, I wanted to focus on the other stuff!  

I couldn't resist ONE sunflower, at least... but that gorgeous Leaf Punch shouldn't be overlooked, and this stamp set has some stunning sentiments!

My first card lets the Leaf Punch take centre stage, using it for both a textured background and a focal point.

It's as easy as punch-and-glue to create that gorgeous texture, and though it's tone-on-tone, it packs a big impact!

Speaking of tone-on-tone... I had to bust out my favourite embossing paste for my second card!  With a little Crumb Cake reinker, the paste becomes a gorgeous texture for an otherwise plain background.

A flick of gold embossing paste and some texture with papers and washi makes this card a little extra-special, doesn't it?  

Whether your style is simple and chic or lots of layers, Painted Harvest Bundle has your back!  These gorgeous stamping supplies are all available 24/7 and direct to your door from my Online Canadian Stampin' Up store.  

Let's hop over to Sylwia to see what beautiful project she has created for us!

  3. I love that you focused on the leaves and made them the star of your projects! The tone on tone background is a fabulous idea. I love the gold highlights on your embossing paste too ♥
