Happy Thanksgiving

On any other year, Thanksgiving comes & goes in Australia without it featuring as part of my holiday calendar.

This year, I have been invited by friends to a Thanksgiving dinner!

I am totally out of my depth for making Thanksgiving cards – so I went searching in the catalogue for inspiration.

The card on the bottom left of the photo was my inspiration.

This is how my card turned out…

I kept with the Painted Harvest stamp set and Painted Autumn DSP but added in a Crumb Cake layer, changed the Garden Green to Tranquil tide, added some vellum leaves and finished with some pearls!

Same, same but different!!!  Don’t forget that the beautiful pages of the catalogue are your friend when you need spark of inspiration or a guiding theme for a stamp set or product.

I am thankful for having a wonderful support network of not only my family, but friends that are as important to me as family!

I hope you have a long list of things that bring you happiness!

Painted Harvest

It is my mission for every new catalogue that Stampin’ Up! releases to buy the set that everyone is raving about.

Not only because if the masses like it, then chances are that I will too, but because there ends up being a tonne of inspiration available on Pinterest & Facebook!

So, this catalogue, my ‘peer picked’ stamp set is Painted Harvest. It comes with a coordinating punch – a very versatile leaf shape.

And, one of the best features is that bundled together, the stamp set and punch are only $58.50 (Australian pricing).

You can buy the bundle in my online store, click here to be taken there!


When my Stampin’ Up! box arrived this morning (mostly filled with customer orders and just a few goodies for me…. or at least that’s what I’m telling Mr Papercraft), Painted Harvest was the first thing I unpacked.

The sunflower looks amazing in a range of different colours, and I’m looking forward to experimenting, but for my first inking, I was all about the traditional…

A clean and simple design to let the sunflower shine!

As usual the Painted Harvest coordinated well with other products in the Stampin’ Up! range.  I’ve paired it with the Layered Leaves embossing folder.

Thanks for visiting today!  Be sure to check in tomorrow and Thursday for some design team cards!
