Painted Harvest Colour Combinations

Hi, over the last week you’ve seen some of my favourite colour combinations when creating with the Painted Harvest Stamp Set (and bundle).  There are, however, many, many other combinations you could use.  Today, I am sharing a few more you may like to consider when creating.  Please note, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the different colour combinations you can come up with.

I have categorised the combinations based on the base stamp colour.

Painted Harvest Tips and Tricks

Stampin’ Up! has offered the following tips and tricks for using the Painted Harvest Stamp Set:

* Stamp all layers of the image
* Make sure your ink pads are well inked
* Use nice, even pressure when stamping
* Use the Stampin’ Pierce Mat
* Keepin mind that lighter colours won’t show up as deeply as darker colours
* Play around with saturation levels (e.g., stamping full strength vs. stamping off) to get your desired look
* The stamp is not supposed to match the flowers on the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper

I hope you take time to really experiment with the different colour combinations. Some will look amazing! Others…not so much. It’s all just trial and error, and part of the fun of creating!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Joy to the world (Hearts Come Home)

Hi, the Hearts Come Home bundle from the new catalogue is one of my favourite of the Christmas themed stamp and die sets from the new Holiday Catalogue. The sample card featured in the catalogue looks amazing and I really wanted to try my hand at re-creating it. Please note, this is NOT an original design. All credit goes to the Stampin’ Up! designers.

I think the original designer used gold glimmer paper for the gold lights in the windows of the buildings. Unfortunately, I don’t have any gold glimmer paper so I needed to find an alternative. In this case, washi tape and embossing powder came to the rescue! I adhered the washi tape to the back of the building so that the sticky side was facing up. Next step was to sprinkle over the gold embossing powder. Wipe away any excess and then use your heat tool to melt the embossing powder. I think it came up a treat! Any washi tape can be used as it won’t be seen from the front of the card. Don’t forget to use your embossing buddy before you apply the washi tape. If you use it after you will affect the stickiness of the washi tape.

Here’s the card…
Joy to the world

I love this card and had so much fun re-creating it. The original designer has a great eye for design! Never be afraid to re-create a card you’ve seen in the catalogue. They are there to inspire. The only stipulation is that you must give credit where credit is due, especially if you post the card online.

Happy Birthday (Painted Harvest)

Hi, I very nearly didn’t share this card with you all today. There’s just something about it which doesn’t work. The reason I am sharing it is that I wanted to show you that not every card is a ‘work of art’ but that doesn’t mean it should be packed away or destroyed. I think someone would still be happy to receive this card. I also have it in the back of my mind that I might be able to re-create it at some stage but in a way which really improves the original design. The card is made using the wonderful Painted Harvest stamp set and coordinating punch.

TIP:
Don’t forget that you don’t have to stick to using the stamps which come in the set; you can mix and match with other stamp sets. That’s what I’ve done for this card. I’ve used the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set to make this a birthday card.

Here’s the card…

Your kindness means so much (Painted Harvest)

Hi, my love affair with the Painted Harvest stamp set continues. If you’ve ever wanted to make your own background paper, this stamp set is a great one for you. I stamped the flower repeatedly on Whisper White cardstock. Using a stamping sponge, I added some more Blushing Bride ink to the edges of the centre panel. It gives it a more rustic look. I did toy with the idea of adding a separate flower and popping it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals but thought the card would look too busy. Instead, I popped up the sentiment and added some punched out leaves. I did want a touch more texture on the card so I put a sheet of Chocolate Chip cardstock in the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impression Embossing Folder and ran it through the Big Shot. You don’t get to see much of the pretty pattern it creates but I think it adds a nice touch.

Here’s the card…

Thankful for You (Painted Harvest)

Hi, the “Painted Harvest” stamp set (and coordinating punch, which can be purchased as a bundle) continues to be one of my favourite sets from the new Holiday Catalogue. One thing I am enjoying playing with is the sunflower and trying out different colour combinations. One of my current favourites is Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo, Chocolate Chip with Pear Pizzazz leaves.

TIP:
Don’t forget to try second generation stamping when playing with solid images as it will really increase the number of different looks you can create. In the photograph below, I’ve used Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo, and Chocolate Chip. For the first example, I ‘stamped off’ before stamping the final image. I repeated this for all of the colours. For the second example, I stamped the Blushing Bride base but then ‘stamped off’ with the Melon Mambo. And for the last image, I stamped all colours ‘full strength’.

I’ve used the 2nd example of colour options to create two very simple but very pretty cards.

If you want to ‘step up’ the card a little, consider adding a few rhinestones. They are a very simple way to step your card up a notch and who doesn’t like a little bit of bling?

Do you have any colour combinations you are loving using with this set? If so, I’d love to hear your favourites! If you would be interested in seeing some more colour combination charts, like I shared above, please let me know as I’d be more than happy to create and share some more.

Painted Harvest

Hi! What do you all think of the new stamps and dies in the new Holiday catalogue? There are some amazing products available. The Painted Autumn set was one suite I loved as soon as I saw it.  The Painted Harvest stamp set is gorgeous!! (Remember, it comes as a bundle with the Leaf Punch so you can get both products for a 10% discount!)

Today I am sharing a trio of cards using the Painted Harvest stamp set. They are all super simple but I wanted to show you how these stamps shine! I also wanted to show you that you don’t have to use things in the traditional way – part of the joy in being arty crafty is experimenting with colours and designs. Years ago, I was a kindergarten teacher. I was away from kinder for a few days as I was unwell. I came back and one of the parents said to me, “Kylie, I’m so glad you’re back. The other teacher told my child she couldn’t colour her elephant purple”. My reply, at the time, was, “My goodness, surely Kinder is the perfect time for elephants to be any colour the child can imagine”. Now that I am older, I say, there are no age limits – let your imagination take you wherever it wants, whenever it wants.

For my first card, I was dying to try a blue and gray combination and I *love* the result.  I used a base of Soft Sky ink, followed by Marina Mist and completed it with Smoky Slate centres and leaves.  Very pretty!

Here’s the card…
Your kindness means so much more than you will ever know
Your kindness means so much more than you will ever know

For the second card, I was curious as to how the flower might look in shades of green so I tried out Lemon Lime Twist for the base and Old Olive for the second stage.  I finished off the card with the Smoky Slate (I *love* this shade of grey!)

Here’s the card…
I am thankful for you

For the last card, I really wanted to try out some reds and Cherry Cobbler and Real Red looked like they would be a perfect combination.  I finished off the card with Sahara Sand.  So pretty!

Here’s the card…
Your kindness means so much more than you will ever know

I added a little bit of Wink of Stella in Clear to the petals (be careful as they ink will move if you aren’t careful!).  I finished the card with a simple sentiment and some rhinestones.  Very easy to do and I love the look.  Just imagine how many different colour combinations you could come up with!?!  So much fun!
