The stamp set Painted Harvest is a popular set from the Holiday catalog. For the background, I stamped the acorn and the fern using Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede inks. I used Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape at the bottom of the card. I used Copper Foil Paper to mat the sunflower but first I used the Leaf Punch (bundled with the Painted Harvest stamp set for a 10% saving) to punch the leaf out of the center of my square. The sunflower is stamped with Daffodil Delight, Cajon Craze and Soft Suede ink. I added the copper leaf as well as two more punched from Vellum cardstock behind the image of the sunflower

I bought my first ever paid tutorial for this card! * I was asked if I would provide a link to where I bought the tutorial http://addinktivedesigns.com/shop/) After making this card from the tutorial
I made this one.
I used the Christmas Staircase Thinlits for this card.
I used Garden Green cardstock for the base and Pines. Be Merry DSP for the layer. I used Wood Textures for the staircase. I used Foil Sheets for the small embellishments. Hearts Come Home is the set I used for the sentiment.

Gail is this weeks challenge host.
This card was so easy everything just fell into place.
Sadly the flower punches used are retired but any small flower punch you own would work. For these flowers, I use the small left over strips of Watercolor Paper that I have after cutting Watercolor Paper for other projects. I can't stand to waste such expensive paper. After wetting the strips of Watercolor Paper I drop ink onto them with an Aqua Painter. After the strips dry I punch as many flowers as I can, each with slightly different colors. I store them in containers to use whenever the mood strikes!
The Cardstock used for this card is Thick Whisper White & Peekaboo Peach. The ink is Berry Burst. I used Garden Trellis Textured Embossing Folder and the Stamp is Happy Birthday Gorgeous.
I made a second one trading the peach for Sweet Sugarplum.
