Nature's Harvest for AYSI 257

It's recipe week this week at As You See It Challenge. Easy - make us a creation that uses all five of the recipe ingredients. This time round it's: wheat/grass, an embossing folder, twine, gingham and Crumb Cake. 

This challenge (mostly) played right into my hands. I've been busy exploring the Nature's Harvest bundle that includes Nature's Harvest stamp set and matching dies, Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder and Harvest Meadow DSP - among other items. If you haven't already, check out this suite in the July-December Mini Catalogue. If you live in New Zealand and don't have one, message me.

I started with a Crumb Cake base. One of the colours used in the Harvest Meadow DSP is Crumb Cake and by a happy coincidence, there's one that uses Crumb Cake AND wheat sheaves. I die cut the grass die from Cajun Craze and popped it in behind the stamped, coloured and die cut wild flowers.

The background embossing folder is the Timeworn Type 3D folder, which I'm in love with. 

The part of the recipe which caused me some big problems was the gingham element. There are a number of stacks of DSP which include some pretty gingham - and I don't have a single one of them! 😀

Luckily, I spotted this Just Jade Gingham ribbon in my ribbon drawer. It's part of the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon combo. So I coloured the flower stems in Just Jade so there'd be some more coordination. Then a swoosh of twine around it helps highlight the sentiment. I used the label die from the Nature's Harvest bundle (cut down to size) but the sentiment is from Art Gallery.

So, that's it. All five elements included!

We'd love to see what you do with these ingredients. It'll be just like a Masterchef Mystery Box challenge!

  1. I love this Jan - so many gorgeous elements! I am going to have to get that embossing folder, you are making it irresistible and I'm glad it wasn't only me that struggled with the gingham, although I wish I had remembered the ribbon!!
