Happy Harvest for Frantic Stamper

Monday, August 29, 2016

Hello -- I had so much fun making this card. I wanted to use this fun Wooden wheelbarrow die from Frantic Stamper so I looked through my stash to see what I had that would work well with it and I found the super cute Happy Harvest stamp set from Lawn Fawn. 

I started by stamping my corn stalks in various inks and heights. I then sponged in a bit of sky. I stamped and colored my pumpkins and then tucked them inside that fun wheelbarrow. Lastly, I added a stitched border for some grass that I sponged with some various green distress inks. 

I'm wishing now that I would have used a different ink color for the sentiment -- perhaps a Kraft ink or dark brown. The black is such a contrast to everything else on the card but I suppose there is no changing it. :)

Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow.

Lovely card, Alanna. Just right for the upcoming season. I really like the stamping of the corn stalks. Those colors are perfect. The inking on the ground adds depth. Your pumpkins are stacked so nicely in the wheelbarrow, too. You could always add stamp the sentiment in brown on a kraft or green banner to cover up the black sentiment if the black isn't too your liking. Just a thought. :) Have a great start to your week. :) Hugs!

Wonderful card, Alanna! We drove back-roads in MN yesterday and saw many fields of corn ready to pick! It looked much like your darling card. I think it is perfect the way you made it. Hugs!

Oh that is sweet as can be Alanna! I love the little corn stalks for the background! I think the sentiment is fine in the black, but I know what you mean. I sometimes think the same thing when I used black!
