Harvest Coneflower - Stampin' Up! Nature's Harvest

  Happy Sunday stampers!  Are you ready for a new challenge from The Paper Players?  Jaydee has given us a beautiful set of colors to work with this time.  I thought at first look that I would go to a masculine theme but the colors ended up having a different idea!

 My Stampin' Up! July-December mini catalog preorder arrived just in time for me to use a number of new products for my card today.  The catalog goes live to customers on August 3rd (it was delayed from July due to all the shipping port problems around the world!) and I think there is something for every stamper if the size of my preorder is any indication!

  I used the Harvest Meadow suite for this card with a few other items thrown in for good measure.  I just kept adding and adding until it looked complete.  You know when you know right?

  This one starts with a Crumb Cake base topped with a piece of the new Harvest Meadow DSP in a lovely Misty Moonlight pattern and edged with a length of Very Vanilla scalloped trim.  

  Then I just built up each layer with a square vellum doily in the way back.  The Misty Moonlight label is cut with the new Seasonal Labels dies and stamped with the small flower stamp in Nature's Harvest stamp set.  The next layer is a Crumb Cake die cut and then the coneflower die cut.  I used watercolor paper to cut out the flower and then added the colors with an Aquapainter and ink pads.  The stigmas are colored with layers of Soft Suede, the petals are done with Bumblebee and the stem and leaves are Just Jade.

  The label is stamped in Soft Suede and die cut and popped up with dimensionals across the other layers. I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems for good measure to to add a tiny bit of sparkle to this vintage-y card.

  Check out The Paper Players Design Team samples and then play along with us!
