Bountiful Harvest

The new challenge starts today at Frilly and Funkie and Nancy, our hostess for this one is calling it Bountiful Harvest.  She describes it this way:

"Create any vintage or shabby chic project celebrating the bounty of the season in the rich hues of Autumn."

I began with some Bazzill card stock for the blank and added a full panel of paper from Graphic 45 Voyage Beneath The Sea for the background. Next came a vertical strip of paper from the same pad along with a wider strip of paper from Prima's Vintage Emporium pad. All panels were distressed with my scissors and inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

I used the Prima crochet doily die and some scrap master board that I had to cut the doily.  The chevrons are scraps from the Graphic 45 pad.

Next I found a freebie cornucopia online at and coloured it with my Prismacolors before I inked it all over with Vintage Photo DI and mounted it on a scrap of card stock.

The flower was made from vellum using the Shabby Posies die from Tammy Tutterow and coloured on the back with Candied Apple, Rusty Hinge, Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmelade Distress Crayons that were blended with a water brush. A carved shell button was added for a centre and some leaves were die cut from the Kraft Core Shattered Collection and his Garden Greens die.

The following products used to create this card came from The Funkie Junkie Boutique:


  1. Very beautiful Cec. Love that big blossom, what a great accent piece. Lovely images and papers. :)

  2. Beautiful card. This is exactly what I think of when I think of bountiful harvest a beautiful cornucopia!

  3. Cec, that vellum posy is a show stopper! But I also love the lacy doily behind your pretty cornucopia image. Just a gorgeous card!

  4. A perfect portrayal of Thanksgiving festivities as I remember them. Mom would always get out the cornucopia and fill it with whatever fruits and veggies we had. This is such a festive card, and I love the addition of that beautifully made flower. It amazes me how you used papers from different makers, yet they all work so perfectly together. Hugs!

  5. Love the cornucopia for harvest and that gorgeous doily which works so well with the papers! xx

  6. Your card is soooooooo lovely, Cec!!! I adore your cornucopia overflowing with the bounty of the harvest. Your handmade vellum flower is a show stopper for sure! I never have good luck working with vellum but you've done it expertly. The shabby layers with the lace doily all come together in such a fabulous autumnal creation!
