So, I thought I would step out of the box a little with some fresh vibrant colors using the Country Home stamp set. As you know this is my favorite fall set in the Stampin Up Holiday Catalog. I'm addicted to this set and don't want to put it down!
For this lovely card I used mango melody , blueberry bushel, blackberry bliss and whisper white cardstock. I guess I used a little scrap of old olive cardstock for the little tag, as well.
I love how these colors compliment each other.
For the background I used the new Buffalo Check background stamp inked in blueberry bushel and stamped onto blueberry bushel cardstock. I love the country look of the Buffalo Check stamp- it reminds me of a cozy flannel shirt.
Of course I had to use my Stampin Blends alcohol markers to color it in. I love how the markers glide like butta! They blend so beautifully. I used crumb cake, mango melody, night of navy, old olive and blackberry bliss markers. Always use a memento black ink pad to stamp your image when using the alcohol markers so they don't bleed.
The smaller strip of mango melody cardstock was emobossed with the new Tin Tile emboss folder. Perfect match for this stamp set! A few Galvanized buttons were attached with glue dots and I also threaded them with our rustic linen thread.
Don't forget to stamp the inside... don't you just love the vibrancy of the blueberry bushel ink? So gorgeous!
The shiny silver piece is the new Chicken Wire embellishment sheets. It adds the perfect touch to this country card and plays off the buttons so nicely.
If you look close you can see that I shaded the pussy willows with a tiny bit of the crumb cake light marker.
The whisper white cardstock was cut 2 1/4 x 3 inches and I always keep my image straight when I layer angled layers behind. It makes it easier to look at and the angled layers show more color and interest toward the focal point. The blackberry bliss and mango melody cardstock were cut at 2 1/2 x 3 1/4 each.
The whisper white cardstock was attached over the card with stampin' dimensionals to pop it up a bit.
So, how do you like these out of the box colors? I love experimenting with colors, there's always a new combination to discover.
Thank you for checking out my blog today.
Until the next time...
Keep on Stampin and Come back again soon!
