Harvest Blessings


Today's Ways To Use It Challenge 241 called us to use patchwork in our designs. I chose a simple nine grid patchwork, stamping the four corners, and using K & Co. Que Sera Sera designer paper for the other squares. I ran each section through the Cuttlebug using the Herringbone embossing folder.

I used Verve's Harvest Blessings, and stamped each leaf with Kaleidacolor Late November ink. I sponged the edges with Papertrey Ink's Chai and Chamomile Distress ink, then layered on VersaColor Pinecone and Paprika. The wreath was stamped with Pumpkin Pie, and before stamping I added Old Olive and Summer Sun to the mix. Diamond Stickles accent the wreath. The sentiment is stamped with VersaColor Pinecone.

Background layers are Memory Box Twlight designer paper. I added brads and organdy ribbon, which I heated to curl - all done!

I think my mojo left with the leaves on the trees last week -- it's been a whole week since I stamped~ changing of seasons or something, I guess! Thanks for taking a peek~

If your mojo left, I want mine to leave like yours, because your "missing mojo" created a beautiful card. I mean GORGEOUS. I don't have any Verve, but I see so many great examples, this being one of them.
