Here it is Wednesday and in just two days I’ll be attending Stampin’ Up! Convention in Jacksonville. Of course a storm is headed there too… so I’m just a bit anxious. Keeping tabs on everything but definitely excited about the convention. It’s always a positive, upbeat experience. The atmosphere is ….. well, you gotta be there 😁

A couple of days ago I was using the Kraft Note Cards & Envelopes and there were two left in the package – so my thought was, use them! So I paired them with Nature’s Harvest stamp set & Memento ink.

Stampin' Up! Kraft Note Cards & Nature's Harvest.1

Stampin' Up! Kraft Note Cards & Nature's Harvest.2

The first card is done with a Water Painter & Whisper White Craft ink for the flower heads. They are definitely brighter & more intense in color. The stems and leaves are done with Watercolor Pencils. The second card is done with Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen, so softer. And of course the Tailor Made Tag Die brings direct attention to the tag, not so much the flowers. I think I prefer the first card. The bow is Baker’s Twine Essential Pack, white. I cut a length and pulled the strands apart. It’s attached with a folded over glue dot. These cards are for someone moving, so the sentiments are perfect on both cards – and they come from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set.

Both of the insides of the Note Cards are the same: the small floral bouquet is from Nature’s Harvest stamp set stamped in Memento Black ink. The color blotch is also from Nature’s Harvest and is stamped in So Saffron ink. The Basic White panel was added with liquid glue and the card was complete.

For the envelope, I added a Subtles 6×6 DSP in So Saffron to the envelope flap and trimmed it to fit for both envelopes. So, tell me, do you have a preference on cards? Do you like one better than the other?
