Painted Harvest Thank You Packs - Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to our first hop of the month - September is almost half over and I can hardly believe it! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen our little announcement that we welcomed our fourth child (and first daughter) last Tuesday.  She is beautiful and a great baby!  We are all adjusting well and surprisingly getting some rest.  I was able to snap a few pictures of her on Monday and can't help but share!

She melts my heart!  Thank you for letting me share with you!  I'm quite the proud momma :)

Now, let's talk stamping - since that's why you're really here.
If you are hopping with us for the first time, welcome! We are a group of 20 Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the globe that are fortunate enough to be on the Artisan Design Team for SU! and represent the company and their gorgeous products.  Today we are featuring one of my favorite sets from the holiday catalog - Painted Harvest.  Fall is one of my favorite times of year and one of the main reasons is the colors.  

The coordinating Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (DSP) has such beautiful designs and patterns and the colors really showcase the beauty of autumn.
I created 12 cards for today's hop - showing each of the 12 patterns in the DSP pack.

I fit 6 cards and 6 envelopes in the new Acetate Card Boxes.  I tied each box with some Jute Twine and added a little tag from the Wood Crate Framelits.

I used a variety of punches - including the new Everyday Label Punch from the Holiday Catalog, Stitched Shapes Framelits and Lots of Labels Framelits for the sentiments.

I also used a variety of the gorgeous ribbon Stampin' Up! offers.

You can bundle and save by purchasing both the stamp set and the Leaf Punch.  The sunflower image in this set is beautiful but I think the sentiments are great on their own (as you can see from some of the cards I made without the sunflower).

I hope that you have been inspired by my cards and by the others on the hop so far.  Next up on the hop is the very talented Jennifer Sootkoos from New Jersey!  Make sure to make your way around the entire hop and see all of the lovely creations from the team!

As always, below are some of the items featured on my projects along with the full list of ADT members at the bottom.
