Stamp Review Crew Painted Harvest warm weather style

Welcome to my stop on the Stamp Review Crew blog hop! Today, I'm sharing a fresh card using the leaves and one sentiment from our featured set - Painted Harvest. Truth be known, when I was working on my project, it was 85 and sunny… I just couldn't get fully into 'fall'. (That's what I get for living in Florida, I suppose. lol) I hope this lighter take is okay with you!

I was looking for just the right shade of green for the leaves stamped in the background. It was somewhere in between Lemon Lime Twist and Wild Wasabi. So I smeared some of those inks onto a craft pad and then tapped/smooshed my stamp onto that. Once inked up, I stamped the leaf three times without reinking to get one bold and two lighter images. You can see how the color changes a little each time you stamp. (It's fun… try it!)

And here's a closeup of how it looks once layered and finished.

Aside from our featured set, I also used the following Stampin' Up! products:
