Artsy Painted Harvest: Video Tutorial

I posted a few "artsy" looking cards last week using the Painted Harvest Bundle from the new Stampin' Up! 2017 Holiday Catalog. (click here to see the post) Below are a few more samples using the same technique and similar layout of one of them, along with a video showing how I created the cards. 

  
I used Berry Burst Classic Ink and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink for the card above. 


I used Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink for the card above. I dyed a piece of Emerald Envy Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon with Basic Black Archival Ink so I could have black crinkled ribbon for this card. (I will be posting a video soon of the quick process I used to dye the ribbon) I punched the leafy piece using the punch that is in this bundle. I punched the leaves from Basic Black cardstock and colored them with Clear Wink of Stella. 

In the video below, I show how I created the Pumpkin Pie version of this card. 


I used a tiny bit of ordinary cheese cloth placed under the sentiment to add interest to the card below. 



Look how the black ink sinks in to the crevices of the embossed image on the card below!

2017 Holiday Catalog: A Few Of My Favorite Things


I don't know about you, but I am ready to get going on my fall and holiday crafting projects! Lucky for me (and you), the new holiday catalog is filled with tons of great products and ideas. This is by no means a complete list of my favorites, just a few I am currently completely enamored with. As I have a chance to work with more of the products, I will send out a part 2. 


If you haven't had a chance to browse the catalog yet, click here for a pdf version of the catalog. 

Here is a handy wish list to keep track of your personal favorites. 

First on my list? This probably won't shock you, but it is the Painted Harvest Bundle


I think this stamp set and punch are very versatile. This is a sneak peek of a card I've made using this set that I will be posting a video tutorial on in a few days. I have also had two other blog posts using this stamp set. See them here and here


Look at the wreath card made with this set in the photo below! I haven't made a Christmas card with this set yet, but I know I will. There are also coordinating embellishments, trim and Designer Series Paper. 


One more card below using the same technique that will be featured in the upcoming video tutorial. By now, I'm thinking this bundle should be on your list!






Next up: metallics. To be more specific, let's talk MIXED METALLICS. If this hot trend is right up your alley, Stampin' Up! has you covered!


The suite includes quite a few options for making your projects shine. This video from Stampin' Up! shows the suite in greater detail. 







Get the Merry Patterns Stamp Set Free!


Is your wish list as large as mine?  Earn this EXCLUSIVE, limited-edition Merry Patterns Stamp Set  when you place an order of $300 or more (excludes shipping and tax). This promotion includes on-line orders! Just an idea: You don't have to host your own party or place an order by yourself for that amount. If a group of your friends all ordered together, you would have this set to share for the holidays!

Watch the video below for some great examples of how to use this set. The deer makes me swoon!
