Blog Hop Banner - Share it Sunday

Hi there! Today I want to share an easy Thinking of you card that you can make using the Nature Harvest Bundle from Stampin’ Up!.

This is a new bundle that has beautiful flowers images as well as dies. The dies are particularly amazing as this set has images that can be used as stand along dies.  Which means, the die cuts can be used as the embellishments for your cards.

This die set design is very similar to the Quite Meadow Bundle.

You can use this die set to create fun cards mixing the images in the stamp set with the dies cuts like this one.  And what is even better is that this type of die set can be used for so many techniques. In fact I actually created a card class around the techniques, just because I know the potential on these dies!  You can check it out here to learn more. 

Also please know that today’s post is part of an amazing blog hop where we are going to be sharing with you projects to keep you crafting, our hope is to inspire you and to keep you crafting, so make sure you check below the full line up of participants and visit their blogs. 

But let’s talk about the card I want to share with you today!

Thinking of You Card

For the card today, I paired the Nature’s Harvest Stamp set with the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper (DSP) a.k.a. patterned paper, mainly because I love the colors in it! check both of these products below!

I love purples and rich fall colors and this paper pack has the perfect mix of colors for fall with some hints of Purple (Blackberry Bliss / Rich Razzleberry).

By the way, did you know that during saleabration you can get this bundle for FREE? Yes, you are reading that right! FREE!! During August and September, when you purchase the starter kit you get a FREE bundle from a selected list, and the Nature’s Harvest is one of those bundles.  If you are interested in learning more about the starter kit, I have added a section below! 

So here is my card, what do you think? Do you like it?

Color Combination 

Since I love the color combination on the DSP, I definitely used it as my inspiration!  See below!

I find that this is the easiest way to get the color combos for my cards, so give it a try! Pick a sheet on a paper pack and pull the colors from it to get your color combinations. You will see this is super easy, and your cards will look perfectly color coordinated every single time! 

Thinking of You Card Details & Sketch

This time I actually got the full card idea from a fellow demonstrator Julie Davidson who showed a card like this in a video,  but using a different color combination and the Nature’s Meadow DSP. I fell in love with the card and wanted to make my version of it! 

I created the sketch to help me remember the card and from there I just changed colors and added a few embellishments. 

Here is the sketch if you want to save it for future reference. I love using sketches for my cards, and I am sure I will be using this sketch again soon!

As far as coloring, I stamped the image of the flowers using the blackberry bliss and then color the image using the stampin’ blends a.k.a. alcohol markers. This is one of my favorite ways to color, cause you can blend the colors so you dont get the strokes of your coloring in the image! It always looks really vibrant and perfect! 

For this card I colored the flowers using dark daffodil delight for the centers, and Rich Razzleberry (both light and dark) for the petals. And for the stems I used Cinnamon Cider both shades as well. 

The sentiment was stamped in blackberry bliss onto Cinnamon Cider and cut it out with the dies from this bundle. 

And the panel where I put the flowers was embossed using the Timeworn 3D embossing folder. This adds a really cool dimension and texture, giving it a lot of interest. Don’t you think?
