Thoughts for You (Painted Harvest)

Happy World Card Making Day! Don’t you just love that we have a day especially for us! A time to celebrate our hobby for it really is an amazing one. We get to be creative, no matter our skill level (or rather, our perception of our artistic abilities), and we get to share something we have made with our own hands (and made with love), with those around us. I love it!

Today, I have another of my Painted Harvest cards to share. I thought I should share a card which was created with a more traditional sunflower colour combination.  I didn’t quite get there but since I’ve used shades of orange, I am getting closer!

You’ll notice the card background is quite busy and bold so I needed to find a way to make the centre sunflower pop up against it. The stitched square (from the Stitched Shapes Framelits set) was the perfect way to put some separation between the background and the flower. I then used Stampin’ Dimensionals (either size will do) to pop up the flower. It is a busy card but I think this helps pull it together. You could also place a sheet of vellum over the background to really soften it if you still think the background is too much.

Here’s the card…

Thoughts For You

What are you all doing for World Card Making Day? I am experimenting with the new Stampin’ Blends (currently only available to Demonstrators until October 15, 2017 so if you want to be one of the first to use these fabulous new markers, please consider joining my team). I hope to start sharing some projects using the markers soon. Unfortunately, no general release date has been announced as yet but hopefully, it won’t be too long!

And with that, I am off to create! 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope you all have a fabulous World Card Making Day!

Oh wait, don’t forget the fabulous World Card Making Day specials which are still available until October 10, 2017 as well as the Designer Series Paper special which is running until the end of the month.

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
