Welcome to the Joy of Sets Blog Hop for October where we are showcasing projects featuring Harvest Time. I just love all the colours that this brings to my mind – the colours of Autumn. There’s something warm and homely about those shades of orange, yellow and rust brown.
I couldn’t go past the Stampin’ Up! Country Home stamp set which I just love and I don’t think I’ll ever get rid of. Those cans …… I find a use for them all the time. I coloured this can with a combination of Soft Suede, Cinnamon Cider and Bronze Stampin’ Blends. Being such a simple colouring medium to use, it’s easy to create a customized colour by blending different colours together.
To create the wheat, I started off by dabbing Cinnamon Cider and Bumblebee inks with a sponge on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. This gave a lovely speckled look. Then I die cut it using the Sunflowers Dies.
I loved the look of the striped sheet of paper in the Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper but it didn’t quite match my card. So I set about creating my own using the brush tip of my Stampin’ Blends. I used Poppy Parade, Soft Suede, Cinnamon Cider and Just Jade and really loved how it turned out. Having coordinating colouring tools and inks makes the creative process so much easier.
Some fussy cut pumpkins and stamped images from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set add to the harvest bounty of this card.

Welcome and I’m glad you have had a chance to visit me at my blog, Stamping Flair today. The Joy of Sets Blog Hop participants are showcasing Easter and Spring projects this month so I’m sure there’ll be lots of pastels, bunnies and other cute projects.
I combined both themes by creating flowers for spring with a sentiment for Easter.
The two-tone tulips from Timeless Tulips were created by inking up the stamp in Mango Melody. Then I used a sponge dauber to ink around the edges in Lovely Lipstick. The leaves used the same technique with Granny Apple Green and Call me Clover,
The Country Home stamp set is a favourite of mine and I think this tin can makes a really great vase for the tulips. I stamped the can in Smoky Slate and then coloured it in Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends. A panel of black and white striped Honey Bee Sale Specialty DSP from the Sale-A-Bration range adds a nice contrast against the scalloped frame.
Extra texture was added by embossing the larger panel of Whisper White cardstock with the Tin Tile embossing folder. The Smaller panel was embossed with the Subtle folder. As I didn’t have any ribbon to match the colours on my card I created my own by colouring it with the Pool Party Stampin’ Blend. I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set and cut out the ‘Happy Easter’ section as the rest of the sentiment which said said ‘happy spring’ didn’t quite work for us Down Under!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have been inspired to share your creativity by giving out some Easter cards. Click on the Next button to be directed to Annette Ball’s blog to see what inspiration she has to share with you. Keep following the hop through for lots of creative ideas.

Look forward to seeing you back here soon.
My card today has been inspired by the colour challenge at TGIF Challenges. The challenge was to use Purple Posy, Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray which are 3 of the 5 new In-Colours. I chose the Country Home stamp which is one my favourites as it encompasses a warm homely feel with it’s rustic cans, country tile and wild flowers.
I started off by stamping a 14.8cm x 10.5cm piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Buffalo Check stamp in Rococo Rose. Using my Stamparatus, I stamped it over the entire piece. As it is a large stamp, the use of the Stamparatus gave me the ability to re-stamp the image if parts of it didn’t stamp through the first time.
Using a larger piece of cardstock with the Stamparatus gives you space to place your magnets and to get full coverage with your stamped image.
Then I cut this piece of cardstock down to 5.2cm x 13.2cm and punched the end with the Delightful Tag Topper punch. I used the balance piece to decorate my envelope.
The can has been coloured in Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends and the flowers in Rococo Rose and Purple Posy. The leaves have been coloured with Crumb Cake to add a neutral tone to blend in with the colour scheme.
I have layered the sentiment on a doily cut out of the Botanical Tags dies and sponged with Rococo Rose. Then I added a strip of Whisper White cardstock stamped with one my new favourite texture stamps – Very Versailles. The sentiment is also from this stamp set and I love the font. I stamped this on Crumb Cake cardstock to bring in the leaves from the coloured image.
The Botanical Bliss stamp set was used with the Stamparatus to create a border for the inside of the card.

Please leave me feedback or contact me with any queries. I would love to help you and be your demonstrator.
So nice to have you here today. I really value your support and visits. I also have a Facebook and Instagram account in which I post a few different items so would love for you to stop by there and have a look.
How has your week been? They seem to be going really fast for me. Less than 4 months for Christmas – how fast did that come around? Timely that our Holiday catalog is here and we can get a headstart on all our Christmas preparations.
Today’s Step-it-Up Sunday is featuring one of my favourite stamp sets in the Holiday Catalog – Country Home. Are you getting a bit of an idea that I like ‘country’ things? It has a couple of options with flowers and cans so you can mix and match I used the Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper layered on Tranquil Tide and Crumb Cake card stock to form the base for my card.
This is a very quick card to make but effective. Stamp the can and flowers in Crumb Cake on Whisper White cardstock and layers on to a Tranquil Tide panel. The ribbon has been attached with Tear & Tape adhesive.
To step this card up, colour in the can with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. The flowers have been coloured in with Stampin’ Write markers – Tranquil Tide, Pear Pizzazz, Mango Melody, Blackberry Bliss and Powder Pink. Add a section of Chicken Wire behind the can. I really like the rustic look of the Chicken Wire elements. As it’s silver on one side and white on the other, you can colour it to suit any project.
The sentiment has been inked up in Versamark ink, then immediately in Blackberry Bliss ink and then stamped. Pour Clear Embossing Powder over and heat emboss.
For the next card, I created a panel of Tarnished foil with Blackberry Bliss ink. I loved how the rich tones of the Blackberry Bliss ink work with this beautiful Tin Tile Embossing Folder. This is a really popular Embossing Folder. I saw another demonstrator had embossed their Thanksgiving serviettes with it. It looked amazing. So there’s another use for your embossing folders.
These are the steps to achieve the look. You need to heat emboss between each step.
- Run the Stazon ink pad down the Champagne foil cardstock. Do this from both ends. Use heat setting 1 to dry it.
- Emboss in the Tin Tile embossing folder
- Apply Versamark to sections of the cardstock and add Copper embossing powder
- Repeat Step 4 using Silver embossing powder instead
- Add Blackberry Bliss ink to sections of the cardstock and pour Clear embossing powder over the panel. This seals in the Blackberry Bliss ink.
- Repeat Step 1
I love this technique and the colour just adds a little bit extra to tie in the rest of the project.
To complete add a bit of tulle ribbon using Tear & Tape.
If you would like to get these products and have a look at the rest of the Holiday Catalog, please contact me. I will send one out to you. I would love to help you in your creative journey.
Have a lovely week and keep on crafting.
