Good morning and happy Monday! We’re just T-1 Day until the launch of the new Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog and the Aug-Sep 2021 Sale-a-Bration. Whoo-hoo!!
One of the first things that was on MY list to pre-order was the Nature’s Harvest bundle (and I am SORT of assuming its on YOUR list of first-things-to-grab tomorrow, too!). I used it here – along with a Sale-A-Bration Host-Exclusive set called In Your Words. And…I pulled the wonderful Peaceful Moments set (in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog) off the shelf, too. Take a look-see:
The layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
I started with a piece of Crumb Cake that I placed in my Stamparatus. Using the two floral images from Nature’s Harvest, I stamped them a couple of times on the panel in Early Espresso Ink. Then I cut them into their individual panels.
I used the splatter image in Nature’s Harvest – in stamped off TWICE (that means to ink – stamp on scrap paper – stamp again on scrap paper – stamp on your cardstock) Evening Evergreen to stamp the corners of each of the small panels.
Using an Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Write Marker, I added faux stitches around each panel, then used Liquid Glue to adhere them to an Evening Evergreen mat.
I used the Harvest Dies to cut an Early Espresso “branch”, an Evening Evergreen “wildflower” and a bronze Brushed Metallic cardstock “grasses”.
Arranging the die cuts on the card front – I adhered them with Liquid Glue.
I tied a small bow from the Crumb Cake baker’s twine in the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.
My sentiment, from Peaceful Moments, is stamped in Evening Evergreen on Crumb Cake and cut with a Tasteful Labels die, then popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I added a few bronze Brushed-Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots and the card front was done!
On the inside, I stamped a really good sentiment – one of many! – from the new In Your Words stamp set – in Evening Evergreen on Crumb Cake. I added the “splotches” in the corners – in stamped-off-twice Evening Evergreen and the small floral from Nature’s Harvest in stamped-off-twice Early Espresso over the sentiment itself. I adhered another of the Brushed-Metallic dots and added the Evening Evergreen faux stitches, too! 🙂
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and a Crumb Cake mat, then into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.
My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the stamped-off-twice Evening Evergreen splotches and full strength Early Espresso floral on the front…
…and the Nature’s Harvest floral on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! As I mentioned – this Nature’s Harvest bundle – well, the whole Suite, really! – was #1 on my list to get from the new Jul – Dec 2021 Mini and you’ll be able to do the same tomorrow! In Your Words is too cool – during Sale-A-Bration, you’ll be able to get it for FREE with a $300 (before shipping & tax) individual order or as part of a workshop (I can help you do that easy-peasy, just ask me how!)!! I just LOVE the sentiments – take a gander at it down below in my Special Bundles section – yep, THOSE can earn that set (and a bunch of SAB goodies) for you, too!
I hope you like!
