BFBH - Painted Harvest

Who are the "Blogging Friends?"

We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators located all across the U.S. and Canada who have never met.  But, through our common bond of Stampin’ Up! and a shared love of paper-crafting we have created a fun blog hop. Please join us on the 1st of every month to see what wonderful things we have created for you!

I love using our new colors with my loved stamp sets, such as Painted Harvest.  Mango Melody is such a vibrant option for an autumn palette - I had to try it with the Painted Harvest sunflowers. 
The Mango Melody is layered with Grapefruit Grove to get this stunning two-step stamping effect.  Pear Pizazz and Whisper White complete the color combination for this design.

I added leaves with stamping and our card stock with the Leaf Punch.  Our Linen Thread is a beautiful embellishment to add texture as a fiber and a shape of loops.

I hope that my sunflowers card will inspire you to stamp with the Painted Harvest stamp set.  The Leaf Punch is a must-have accessory for every season of paper crafting!

    I'm going to miss seeing you all monthly and I wish nothing but the best for each and everyone of my hop friends. I'm grateful for the three years we had together, which I think is pretty darn good and I hope Rick continues on! XO, Crystal
