Today’s Suite for Sunday Suites let’s check out the Rustic Harvest Suite.

Now we don’t have Thanksgiving or use pumpkins like this in Australia. And Autumn is behind us and nearly Spring. YAY! BUT, there are some little gems in this suite that you really want to see wherever you are. So let’s take a look.

This is the full Rustic Harvest Suite Collection.

This Suite includes:

  • Hello Harvest Bundle (Stamp Set and Rustic Pumpkin Dies)
  • Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper (12 12″x12″ pack)
  • 12 sheets of 12″x12″ Black Cardstock
  • Leaf Label and Amber Gem Combo Pack
  • Embossing Additions Tool Kit

A Closer look at the Hello Harvest Bundle. You have the little vine dies features that add squiggles to any projects. And also swirly shapes in the stamp set. They make great additions. The flower and leaf images are gorgeous to create on your projects.

The Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper isn’t all pumpkins. There are lovely flower images and pattern prints. Colours in this pack are Basic Black, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow.

The Embossing Additions Took Kit ($47AUD) includes some great tools for your heat embossing. This includes the Embossing Buddy, Powder Pal Tray, Crafting Tweezers and Crafting Brush.

The Leaf Labels and Amber Gem Combo Pack includes – 25 kraft leaves: 6.4 x 5.7 cm (2-1/2″ x 2-1/4″) and 50 Amber coloured gems, 25 each of 2 sizes: 4 mm, 5 mm.

Let’s check out some ways of using all these lovely products.

(Projects created by Stampin’ Up! artists).

By stamping the flowers twice and layering they create quite a gorgeous display on this card. The extra addition on the card below is the chalkboard effect on the black card. It looks cool.

A way you can use the lovely leaf tags. They are a sweet addition to a gift or other project.

Such pretty paper you don’t need to do too much with it. And stamp the sentiment on some of the paper for an added touch.

Also check the side of the flower paper. It uses the Woven Ribbon. Cut the edge off the ribbon and pull the threads to get a fringed effect. It’s cool! And also it adds some Amber Gems.

Sunday Suites today looking at the Lovely in Linen Suite Collection available in the Annual Catalogue.

This suite with the stamps and punch, Paper and Embossing Folder will create projects with a rustic style to a more elegant style. It’s a very versatile one.

The sentiments in the Lovely and Lasting stamp set would be useful for many different occasions. The Lasting Label Punch has a very unique shape but is a good size that would work with many of your other sentiments.
