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.
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.
Here’s the card…
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.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Listed below are the supplies used to create the above project. If the stamp set comes in different types (such as clear mount or wood mount), I link to them both. At the end, I have also linked to other ‘staple’ items you might need to finish the project (such as adhesive and a paper trimmer).
you are an amazing artist! I am a new subscriber after seeing your cards on Pinterest.
Please show more color combinations! I also use these combinations on the butterflies in Watercolor Wings.
Thank you so much for sharing your artistry.
Hi Cris. thank you so very much for your kind words. You’ve made my day! I will work on some more colour combinations to share. I love the Watercolor Wings set too but haven’t used it for a while. Might have to pull it out again. Thanks again! 🙂
Beautiful. That flower looks fabulous all dressed in pinks. I do love these. The rhinestones do give it that little extra, too. Your cards are always lovely. You should pop this into Darnell’s NBUS. Too pretty not to! xoxo
Thank you so much, my friend! 🙂 I don’t think I can add this into Darnell’s NBUS as I’ve used it a few times. I’ll find something else to use. 🙂
