Hello and welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne where we have had a beautiful sunny day. We are experience some lovely spring weather right now. For our Around the World on Wednesday blog hop this month we are sharing projects around changing seasons, whether it is nature inspired or centred around events in our lives.
Our Around the World on Wednesday Design Team is made of up a very beautiful, talented group of ladies who love to create with Stampin’ Up! products. Every 2nd Wednesday of the month we join together to bring you creative inspiration from our corner of the world.
I have been immersed in the Harvest Meadow suite this week and can’t stop creating with it. It is so beautiful.
Inspired by this suite and also by the challenge at Sunday Stamps SSC265, I have picked the colours of Autumn for my card today. My chosen colour palette is Bumblebee, Pumpkin Pie, Cinnamon Cider, Soft Succulent and Very Vanilla.
I watercoloured the flowers with a combination of colours using
Water Painters. The sprigs were die cut from Very Vanilla Cardstock and sponged with Cinnamon Cider and Pumpkin Pie inks.
On the card base, I added a panel of cardstock which was embossed with the Timeworn Embossing Folder. This folder gives such a beautiful texture and if you love that vintage look, you need this. (just saying!!)
I followed a video by our Artisan Design Team member, Tammy Wilson, to create the bow. I’ve still got some practicing to do but oh, it it is lots of fun to make. Click here to view the bow making video.
I am creating this card on my Facebook Live tonight so for full instructions and tips please make sure you check that out.
