Stamping Inkspirations October Blog Hop Harvest Time

Welcome to the Stamping Inkspirations October Blog Hop as we showcase projects with the theme "Harvest Time". As the days get shorter and cooler and the leaves change color, it makes me think of warm Fall colors and wonderful natural textures that come with this wonderful season. Join us on our blog hop as we share our projects and ideas to help inspire you to embrace this theme in your own creative projects.
The Harvest Meadow Suite has so many wonderful products for creating beautiful Fall projects. For my card design, I chose to use the Nature's Harvest Bundle with the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper to create this peaceful Get Well card. I added texture to the background of the circle die cut with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder and I added several of the Gold Dots from the Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots that are also in this wonderful suite. I love the way these products coordinate to take the stress out of creating.

This beautiful card has all the elements that remind me of Harvest Time and Fall. The wheat patterned background of the designer series paper makes me think of the farms near where I grew up and the colors I chose are warm and comforting, just like I would feel bundled up against the cold on a crisp Fall day. I love that the Harvest Meadow Suite provided me with the products I needed to create this card design. I stamped the images and sentiment with Early Espresso Classic ink to coordinate with the card base. I used Gold embossing powder to distress the embossed background of the Early Espresso circle to create texture and to bring out the detail in the embossing. The Gold dots were the perfect finishing touch for this card design. I would like to think that this card would bring comfort to the person receiving it and help them on the road to recovery. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to explore the wonderful colors and textures associated with Fall to help you create your own beautiful projects.
