Harvest Dies Make The Reduce

The wind’s choosing up now and I feel we’re prepared for the storm. Fortunately I used to be in a position to get my weblog put up accomplished too. My undertaking is a reasonably pocket book embellished on the entrance with a watercoloured flower created utilizing the Harvest Dies. I’m happy to have the ability to affirm that the dies and coordinating Nature’s Harvest Stamp Set each made the lower. Which means they’ll proceed to be obtainable after the July to December 2021 Mini Catalogue ends on January third.

I started by slicing out the flower from Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper utilizing a die from the Harvest Dies. Then utilizing Water Painters I started to color within the picture. As an alternative of utilizing ink pads or reinkers as my ‘paint’ I used the comb tip of some Stampin’ Write Markers to scribble on the dry paper. Then I moved the ink round utilizing a Water Painter stuffed with clear water.

For the leaves and stem I began with Comfortable Succulent, after which added Night Evergreen. For the petals I selected Polished Pink. All three colors are included within the 2021-2023 In Colours Stampin’ Write Markers pack. For the highest of the flower I blended issues up a bit. I began with Polished Pink, then added some Night Evergreen earlier than ending off with Cinnamon Cider (from the 2020-2022 assortment).

Between every addition of color I allowed the paper to virtually dry in order that they wouldn’t all mix into one another. As soon as the piece was utterly dry I drew on a couple of Polished Pink traces from the bottom of the petals.

With that carried out I set the piece apart whereas I ready the pocket book.


The pocket book I made a decision to brighten was purchased at Walmart and is 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ with a tough cowl.

I started by including some bling to the entrance over utilizing Gilded Leafing. To do that I squeezed some Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) onto a Silicone Craft Sheet. Then I scrunched up some Saran Wrap (cling movie) right into a free ball and frivolously tapped it onto the glue. Then I gently tapped the ball onto the quilt of the pocket book. I repeated this course of a couple of instances till there have been small areas of glue over the floor. I let the glue dry for a couple of seconds after which coated it with Gilded Leafing, urgent it down nicely. Lastly I gently rubbed my finger over the Gilded Leafing to take away any that wasn’t caught.

Now it was time to create some layers for my die-cut piece.

I began with a 2-1/4″ x 5″ piece of Night Evergreen Card and a 2-1/8″ x 4-7/8″ piece of Polished Pink Card. Then utilizing liquid glue I mounted the 2 collectively. It was solely then that I made a decision to create a background for the flower utilizing the identical Saran Wrap method.

This time as a substitute of glue I might use a Saran Wrap ball to switch ink onto a 2″ x 4-3/4″ layer of Very Vanilla Card. So as to add curiosity I pulled out two ink pads, Balmy Blue and Misty Moonlight. As soon as the background was carried out I glued it to my different layers.

Subsequent got here the dried die-cut flower and I added that on prime of the layers utilizing extra liquid glue.

Whereas I appreciated issues to this point the flower gave the impression to be ‘floating’. So I lower a chunk of Night Evergreen 3/8″ Chevron Weave Ribbon and wrapped it across the layers at an angle. After securing the ends of the ribbon on the again with Tear & Tape Adhesive I added the assembled layers to the pocket book utilizing Stampin’ Dimensionals.


I might have stopped there however I couldn’t resist pulling out the coordinating Nature’s Harvest Stamp Set.

To coordinate with the ornament on the entrance of the pocket book I selected the picture of the three coneflowers. I had no plans to color the picture and selected a pleasant impartial colored ink pad, Crumb Cake, for the stamping.

Opening up the pocket book I turned to the within cowl web page which was a plain vanilla color and stamped the flowers onto it. Lastly I used to be carried out.
