Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a fun little card to share with you using the Nature's Harvest Stamp Set. This beautiful stamp set and bundle is a returning favorite from the 2021 July - December Mini Catalog from Stampin' Up! which made it's way into the 2022-2023 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog, and I couldn't be more happy about that. My card design today is based on one of my Crafty Card Sketches for the month of July. Here's a look at the project I created to share with you today.
At the first of each month I send out my Creative Crafty Calendar to my email subscribers. On my Creative Crafty Calendar I have a new creative prompt each day to help inspire you and to get your creative mojo going if you are in a rut. On some days I have a card sketch which I also send in that same email each month. This is my Crafty Card Sketch #6 which is one of the ones I have for the month of July. So, if you are not on my email list now is a great time to get on it. You can click the link above to join my email list.
Nature's Harvest & Rays of Light:
The Nature's Harvest Stamp Set is perfect for sending heartfelt messages of love and support to the people you hold dear. Along with touching sentiments that have a classic font style, this stamp set also includes botanical images that have a timeless feel. The neutral and classic designs are perfect for everyone in your life.
I used the Rays of Light Stamp Set to the layer above the DSP layer to add a little texture to the card. The Rays of Light Stamp Set allows you to brighten your crafting. The bold rays emanate from an offset open circle to create a sense of light and shadow. To create a quick card, use this stamp to stamp the background on your card base, then stamp a sentiment over the ray image. Done! If you want to step it up, layer punched or die-cut pieces over the rays.
