The Holiday Catalog is chock-full of delightful suites of products. Christmas is the first and formost (which you know I will be featuring soon!), but it also has gorgeous fun new stuff for fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving!
The "Orchard Harvest" Suite is one such example. This card features the "Orchard Harvest" Designer Paper, along with the "Perfectly Preserved" stamp set and matchng "Cannery" Framelit Dies. This swap, which is nameless, also uses the "Little Labels" Punch Pack and "Lovely Little Labels" stamp set. The "thank you" is from "Perfectly Preserved", cut out with the small oval Punch and backed with an Itty Bitty Banner. The Scallop Oval doily under the jar is embossed with the new "Lacy Brocade" folder. The Island Indigo mat layer was embossed with the "Woodgrain" Embossing Folder.
This card by Rene Watson uses some of the same images from "Perfectly Preserved", but with the pear image instead of the appple! Using More Mustard cardstock gives this card a whole different flavor, doesn't it? Rene used the "Window Frames Collection" framelit dies to cut the Old Olive mat for the canning jar, with some simple Whisper White Baker's Twine to "tie" the top of the jar!
Cherry Cobbler and Island Indigo are the featured colors of this card by Karen Kurz! Karen and Rene are both demonstrators in the monthly swap I participate in. Karen used "Orchard Harvest" Designer Paper, along with the "Window Frames Collection" Framelits to cut the Cherry Cobbler mat. She complemented the window frame shape with paper piercing using the "Festive" Paper-Piercing Pack and our new, ergonomically designed Paper Piercing Tool. A bit of Early Espresso Baker's Twine finishes off the top of this canning jar!
Here's another card using products from the Orchard Harvest Suite, this time by Ann Lohmeyer. Ann used the "Woodgrain" Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to emboss the Soft Suede layer after applying the leaves cut with the "Autumn Accents" Bigz Die. The result is a look of the leaves being embedded in the woodgrain! "THANKS A BUNCH" is from the "Friendship Preserves" stamp set and has been cut out once again with the "Window Frames Frames Collection" Framelit Die. She applied clear "Dazzling Details" last thing to the "THANKS" letters, and sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink.
Last but not least, Ruth Bingle, another monthly swapper, created this beauty with the "Autumn Accents" Bigz Die, a strip of "Howlstooth & Scaringbone" Designer Paper, a "Brushed Bronze" Designer Button, Linen Thread, and Basic Black/Basic Gray 1/2" Striped Satin Ribbon. The sentiment is from the "Day of Gratitude" stamp set found in the Annnual Catalog on page 27. A beautiful card!
Hope you have enjoyed today's samples as much as I have enjoyed selecting and showing them to you!
I'm not sure what I will have for you tomorrow, but please come back to find out!
