Art Impressions Harvest Try Fold

Hello friends!! I’ve got a few things for you today. First, today is the FIRST! If you don’t know what that means… it means today is Anything But A Card’s FIRST challenge! Please head over and check it out!

Second, I wanted to share this really awesome card that I made using Art Impressions Harvest Try Folds. Currently this stamp is available in stores only, but should be available online soon.

I didn’t use the stamps as they were originally intended. Instead I stamped all three stamps onto one layer. I did however create a video to show you how to use them properly. Leave it to me to break the rules! :)

I took photos as I colored, so you could see the colors I used, and so you could get an idea of how I colored… and what it looked like as I went along. I colored this while camping with my family, or else I would have just taken a video for you! There are several photos, so I’ve uploaded them as a gallery so it doesn’t take forever to load. If you want to look at them individually, simply click on a photo. If you want to view them in order, simply click on the first image, and it will open as a slideshow.

I used Rose Peach, Pumpkin, Mandarin, Sunflower, Pink Lavender, Wild Orchid, Red Violet, Light Fawn, Nutmeg, Auburn, Rosewood, Apple, Chartreuse, Sea Green, and Lipstick Red to color the image. You can purchase Letraset FlexMarkers from Simon Says Stamp, or directly from Letraset (you can find their link on my sidebar). Once it was done, I used a stencil from The Crafters Workshop to add the clouds.

Hope you’ve enjoyed todays card! Happy Labor Day, hope everyone has a great Labor Day!

Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Good Friday morning to you! Can’t believe Thanksgiving is already over! The drive, the preparation, getting to spend time with friends and family. It was all so worth it! And here we are. Black Friday! Be sure to check out the giveaway by my dear friend, Rebecca of i am cared for. She’s giving away a pair of gloves, and with this cold Michigan weather, they sure came in handy for the kids and I! (She can make smaller sizes for children, isn’t that fun!)

For this card, I used On Ice.

I used Autumn Leaves Ponderosa Pine Olive Starburst Stain on the flower.
The stains are from Lindy’s Stamp Gang.
