Crochet Trimmed Painted Harvest

Welcome again to our Stampin’ Up! Product Spotlight Blog Hop.
The Autumn/Winter catalogue (Holiday Catalog for those in the US and Canada) has such a lot of great new products you may be having difficulty choosing what to buy first 😉  To help you with your shopping decisions I’ve got together with some of my fellow SU! demonstrators to bring you several days of blog hopping, focusing on a different product each day – so you’ll get to see different projects from each of us but all using the same product on that particular day. Today we’re all using the Vintage Crochet Trim.

The Vintage Crochet Trim may be part of our Halloween suite but it also works well for adding a dainty contrast to bold colours.

The card base is an A6 portrait of Flirty Flamingo. A wide panel of the same Flirty Flamingo card had a Layering Circle (a little larger than the Painted Harvest flower) die cut from the upper centre of the panel before running it through the Big Shot with the Petal Burst embossing folder. The Painted Harvest flower was stamped onto Whisper White card with Flirty Flamingo ink for the base flower (twice, offsetting the petals), Cherry Cobbler ink for the shadowed flower layer, Daffodil Delight for the flower centre and Memento Black for spots. This stamped piece was adhered direct to the card front, directly below where the Circle aperture would sit. Vintage Crochet Trim was adhered with Tear and Tape behind the embossed panel so that the Trim just peeks out. The panel was then popped up on the card front with dimensionals. A sentiment from Happy Birthday Gorgeous was stamped onto a small panel of Whisper White with Memento Black ink. More Vintage Crochet Trim was adhered all round the edges of the panel with Tear and Tape before popping it up on the card front. Some Black Rhinestone Jewels were added to the centre of the flower to finish.

On the Whisper White insert, another sentiment from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set was stamped in Memento Black ink. The two sizes of the many petaled outline flowers were stamped in Cherry Cobbler and then the corresponding solid flowers were stamped with Flirty Flamingo ink.

The Black Rhinestones partner well with the Crochet Trim don’t you think?

Thanks for stopping by.
