Sketch Challenge with Painted Harvest

Welcome to PCC266 – sketch challenge with Painted Harvest! Actually, the challenge is with the Paper Craft Crew; I love this week’s sketch, and chose to use the Painted Harvest set.

The really great thing about the Painted Harvest set is that there is a whole suite of products that all coordinate! You can Bundle the stamp set with the Leaf Punch, and SAVE 10%, and you can also choose as many of the other products (designer paper, ribbon, embellishments) as you want.

Here’s this week’s sketch challenge:

Sketch Challenge with Painted Harvest

I’ll be honest; when I first saw this sketch, I was totally stumped! And seriously intimidated!! But once I decided to use the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper in my focal area, it all came together quickly after that.

I’m so chuffed with how it turned out! (that’s a good thing, in case you don’t ‘speak’ Scottish!)


I used Chocolate Chip cardstock as my base; I would’ve used Early Espresso, but I’ve run out! The next panel is Soft Sky cardstock, cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″.  The Painted Autumn DSP is cut to 2″ x 3″. To create the scalloped piece behind it, I used my Big Shot and Layering Squares Framelits. I die cut one edge of the large scalloped square, and trimmed it down to 1″ x 3″, and layered it behind the DSP with Tear & Tape.

To create the leaves, I stamped the small ones from the Jar of Love stamp set in Garden Green. The large leaves are from the Painted Harvest stamp set, inked in Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green. The Big Shot with the Everyday Jars Thinlits was used to die cut the small leaves; the Leaf Punch used for the large leaves.

The sentiment is from the retired Wetlands stamp set; stamped in Chocolate Chip ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock. It is die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. The oval behind it is Chocolate Chip cardstock, die cut with the retired Ovals Framelits (I don’t have the Layering Ovals Framelits, but you can use those, if you do).

The sentiment and leaves are all layered onto the DSP panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots. After the layering was done, I attached the panel to the card front with Dimensionals. The Burlap Ribbon is attached with Tear & Tape, and the Shimmer Ribbon in Pool Party is attached with Mini Glue Dots.


I haven’t decided what occasion this card will be used for, so I haven’t stamped an inside sentiment yet.  I did stamp the flower image from the Painted Harvest set in the lower right corner. For the flower, I stamped the first layer in So Saffron ink, the second layer in Crushed Curry ink, and the middle in Chocolate Chip ink.

I’ve just started stamping with this set, so I’m really hoping that it will carry over, after the Holiday catalogue period is finished!

    This is beautiful, Deborah. I can see why you’re chuffed. I love the burlap ribbon; it’s perfect for this card.


  1. […] Hello stamping friend! I thought I’d take a little break from Christmas themed projects, and show you one of the sympathy cards I made recently.  I actually made 2 cards with the same layout, but switched the positioning from right to left, and changed the colours and papers. The first cards was a sketch challenge for the Paper Craft Crew.  You can see the first card IN THIS POST. […]

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
