Harvest Birthday

This is the brand new Harvest Oval Frame. It's gorgeous.  I can image it in rich fall colors. You could watercolor it or marker it or brush/sponge it to add those vibrant colors. But one of the main things I adore about Poppystamps dies is that they are so detailed, they can stand alone. Of course, it also helps to have a fabulous sentiment - this one from the Say It Big clear stamp and die set.

I do adore the vibrant colors of fall and I especially love them against a backdrop of gray skies or morning frost. The contrast between the cool neutrals and the rich colors is simply incredible so many of my fall cards include gray.  This one is heavy on the gray, but I added the fall colors in the various gems on the berries. This is a variety of colors from the appropriately named Autumn Fairy Jewels.

The sentiments comes for Say it Big clear stamp and die set.  The set includes seven different bold sentiments all with the fun font, swooshes and banners. They really stand out on a card and fit the oval center of this die cut perfectly!

I played around for quite awhile with more colors. I wanted the sentiment to really pop so I tried colors in the oval area - I even created a striped oval - but I kept coming back to the simple gray colors scheme.  So to highlight the sentiment, I added a simple piece of sheer ribbon. It's just enough to point the eye toward that sentiment.

I hope I've given you some ideas for quick and easy uses of this die. I know you'll enjoy adding fall colors to it, but it also works for a clean and simple card!Kim Floral Signature copy
