Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is “Wonderful Cards/Projects from the Garden” where our design team showcase projects from things found in a garden, such as flowers, vegetables, fruits, or even a garden scene. We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. Once you finish here, you will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
Today’s cards are Sneak Peeks of the Nature’s Harvest Bundle. Wow! That about sums it up. This Bundle caught my eye and was at the top of my list. The matching Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper is my color and design inspiration today. I couldn’t put these gorgeous dies away, so I made a second card.
Both card designs are identical except that I added much more ink to my first card. (Which is also below).
Here’s How I Did It!
Included in the Nature’s Harvest stamp set is a background stamp which I used to spread some Misty Moonlight ink behind the die cuts. With my Blender Brush, I created a Misty Moonlight “shadow” around the die cuts. I inked the edges of the DSP layer, the white flower spray and the sentiment tag using a sponge dauber. Adding in the Misty Moonlight ink really gives this design a good amount of depth. My cards are usually “cleaner”, but I really liked the contrast in the inked version.
Below is my original, clean version of the same design. The Misty Moonlight wheat and Soft Succulent branch are perfect behind the crisp, clean flowers picked right from the garden for the Pals.
The sentiment is a beautiful get well, encouragement or sympathy message. The font in the sentiment matches the penned font in the Designer Series Paper. This is a perfect pattern repeat.
Both cards are embellished with the upcoming Matte Decorative Dots. They’re in three sizes and so much fun to use.
So, find some inspirational Designer Series Paper, ink it up, attach a few amazing die cuts and create something thoughtful!
…the only limitation is your imagination!
More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team, because the Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on August 11th. Our theme will be “My Happiest Season” when our Design Team creates a project showcase inspired by their favorite season of the year. Until then, have fun in your craft space.

Gorgeous card, Debbie! I love what you did with this bundle!
I usually prefer a cleaner look, but the shading makes the bouquet pop! Both equally beautiful, Debbie!
You have created a great card. The flowers are perfect for the beautiful background paper. I want it all!
Such a pretty card, Debbie!
Lovely card, thank you for sharing.
Both cards are beautiful and so soft! Love the background!
Love your cards, Debbie! Beautifully done!
Deb, I was doing perfectly fine to wait till August to order. You have to create this gorgeous card that makes me want to order immediately! LOL Perfectly done! Thank you for joining the blog hop this month.
Such a subtle and gorgeous color combination. Both cards are stunning! How did I miss the matte dots? Must have those!
You did a great job showcasing this beautiful new bundle.
Gorgeous cards, Deb! I can’t decide which one I love the most!
I can’t figure out the background stamp that you used. I looked at Nature’s Harvest and don’t see it. Can you give a little help figuring this out.
Hi Margaret, the background on this card is one of the patterns from the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper that is part of this Suite of products. I hope this helps you. Thank you for your question. Debbie
These cards are so pretty Debbie! Love the extra ink of the first card.
