We had a rainy weekend here and that, topped with a sick baby in the house, meant my crafting headed to the basement to create some cards.

I haven’t made cards in ages!  I forgot how much I missed it.

I decided to challenge myself and only bring out a single stamp set – Harvest Berries from Papertrey Ink – to recreate some of the masterpieces I’ve seen on Pinterest.  I know, I’m a plagiarist – but these talented people are the reason I bought the Harvest Berries set to begin with.

I’m a fan of the CAS (clean & simple) look; not too many layers or frills or bling so these were the cards I whipped out with Miss Chloë:

Even the above has more ‘bling’ than I usually like – but I couldn’t resist copying the original.

A little gold embossing on a small wallpaper sample and a few tiny rhinestones for interest.

I loved the colours and angled front piece that Maille shared.

This one might be my favourite; single layer, two colours (and black), and so pretty!

The Harvest Berries stamp set is of ginkgo biloba leaves – famous for helping in memory retention and recollection – so the sentiment with the set is perfect.

I could have kept going for ages – the Harvest Berries stamp set is so pretty for being mainly leaves.

Now that I have a small stash, I might actually get some cards out for all of those March birthdays I missed!

Have a great one!
