Painted Harvest

Hello & Happy Saturday!

Up early this morning to run a few errands then tackle reorganizing the storage room in the basement. With all the boxes/totes full of Ceramic Christmas Trees we really need to get things better organized and just straightened up. We usually try to do this every Fall/Winter. Shawn also needs to look at the one sump pump down there. Something odd going on with it. 

Last night was my stamp get together with friends.
We had such a great time and they all loved the cards I created for it and that always makes me happy to hear! Miss Emily said she could not pick a favorite because she loved them all!! 
We are going to try to get together again on October 6th for World Cardmaking Day and do some Halloween projects! Can't believe we are talking about October already!!!!

Today I am sharing one of the cards I created for our get together using the VERY loved Painted Harvest set.

I am thinking of seriously buying another Painted Harvest set before it would ever retire just so I have a backup! My set has been used SO much in the last year that the stamps do not want to stick to the acrylic blocks anymore. They say a bath in hot soapy water would remedy that issue but I have not tried yet. If you have any suggestions let me know.

Card Details:

Stamps: Painted Harvest, Itty Bitty Greetings, Stitched All Around
Ink: Fresh Fig, Crushed Curry
Cardstock: Fresh Fig, Crushed Curry, Whisper White
Accessories: Stitched Labels Framelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Basket Weave EF, Classic Label Punch, Fresh Fig 1/8 Ribbon, Crushed Curry Enamel Dot, Glue Dots, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

I wanted something with a Fall feel to it and I think the color combo of Fresh Fig & Crushed Curry nailed it. The Basket Weave EF just adds so much texture to this. 
Definitely one of my favorite cards too!

Here is a Letter Board I have hanging in my stamp room above my light box.
I picked it up at Goodwill over the summer for $3.00...Brand New!
It serves me well and keeps me reminded of when I have a class with friends!

My thoughts today....

That is all for now!
Thanks for stopping by & make it a great day!

This card is just gorgeous in those fall colors! I love both the inside and outside too! Love your letter board too - what a great find for reminders! I need one in each room nowadays :)
Enjoy the sunshine and have a great weekend too!

That embossing worked perfectly on this gorgeous card. I have been keeping my Fresh Fig ink pad real close, lately....LOL. I love that color!

Man do I ever like that basket weave folder!! I LOVE the inside of your card too, so pretty! I never have luck with SU stamps sticking good to blocks so I don't use the stickers they send along and it works MUCH better.
