Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today we had a sketch challenge and I decided to play with the Painted Harvest stamp set coming to you September 1st.  Can I say “I love this set” The combinations of flower colors are endless.  Think fall, golds and yellows then change is up for the holidays to make a mock red poinsettia.  Continue into spring with pinks and lavenders.  Isn’t it fun when a stamp set can be used in so many ways!

    I put this on my to try list because I love it so much! Your fussy cutting is always perfect and you make it sound easy but I doubt it is! Love all your cards!

      Please do try this card. Since the sunflower is so ragged on the edges your cutting won’t really matter because the image is not a perfect straight image, so give it a try. Also a tip when cutting, move the paper not your scissors. It makes it quicker and you do get better cuts. Let me know if this tip works. Happy Stamping
