To celebrate, I made a little 3D project using my favorite set right now, Painted Harvest.  I have a lot of these little 3×3 Note Cubes and they make a special little gift when I need something quick!  I usually will tie a matching stamped pen on top…but right now the pens are downstairs and since my knee surgery, I try to limit the number of times I go up and down the steps each day.  On Friday, I did get released from the doctor to drive!  Hard to believe it has been a month!


Here’s a view from the top:



  • The two-step sunflowers from Painted Harvest were first stamped with the background image in Crushed Curry Ink, then the top layer stamped with Pumpkin Pie Ink.
  • The centers and the dots in the centers were stamped with Chocolate Chip Ink.
  • The two step eaves were stamped with the solid image in Lemon Lime Twist Ink and the veins with Garden Green Ink.
  • To fill in a little, the dots were randomly stamped with Lemon Lime Twist Ink in the open spaces.
  • Some Crushed Curry Mini Woven Ribbon was wrapped around and tied in a bow at the top.
  • The “Gather Together & Give Thanks” greeting from Painted Harvest was stamped with Chocolate Chip Ink on the top page.


OK…don’t forget…it’s not too late to join us over on Create with Connie and Mary for some great new projects featuring stamps and bundles in the Holiday Catalog!

I love this idea, but WHERE did you find affordable cubes? These look beautiful with the Painted Harvest stamps and pretty inks.
