Stampers by the Dozen Blog Hop August 2017

Welcome to the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop. We are a wonderful group of 12 creative Stampin' Up! demonstrators, from all over the world, sharing our creations to help inspire you. This is our first blog hop and to start things off we thought we would share just some of the amazing products that will be available in the 2017 Holiday Catalog, which will launch September 1st. Please take the time to visit each of the blogs by clicking the next button and we would love it if you would leave us a comment to let us know what you liked about the projects we share.

With so many amazing products to choose from, it was tough to decide what I would showcase for this blog hop. Finally I decided to that with Fall just a few weeks away, I would share with you a stunning new stamp set, Painted Harvest, that combines the look of watercolors with the ease of two-step stamping. I had fun playing with various color combinations for the sunflowers and leaves before settling on my final combination. For the petals, I chose Daffodil Delight and Peekaboo Peach for a soft watercolor wash look. For the center I went with Soft Suede to give depth and dimension. Finally for the leaves I chose Pear Pizzazz to help the sunflowers come alive.
I decided to emboss the sentiments on both the card and bookmark with Copper Embossing Powder. To add a little texture, I used the 5/8" Burlap Ribbon on both the card and the bookmark and I tied a bow on the bookmark with the 3/8" Old Olive Mini Chevron Ribbon. To frame the sentiment on the card, I used the new Everyday Label Punch and punched twice out of Early Espresso cardstock. I cut one in half horizontally and the other in half vertically and pieced them together behind the sentiment.

The Painted Harvest stamp set has a coordinating punch (Leaf Punch not shown) and can be purchased as a bundle with a savings of 10%. This stamp set is so versatile and the color combinations are endless. I predict that this will be one of the hot bundles of the Holiday Catalog and I recommend that you add it to your Wish List. I hope my projects help inspire you to with your Fall creations.

Now it is time to visit the talented Lyndsay Carara and see her wonderful project.
