Friendship, General Cards, Seasonal - Fall, Thinking of You

Down Home Country Charm

When I first saw the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog I knew that I would be getting the stamp set that I used on this card.  I shared more about this card HERE.

Even though a lot of people were oohing and ahhhing over all the new Christmas stamps, my mind just wasn’t there yet. As a demonstrator I got to get a sneak preview….and that was back at the end of July!  I just wasn’t ready yet.  But now it’s after Labor Day and it’s time to think about fall.  It’s one of my favorite times of the year…..cooler weather and the almost weekly drive to see my favorite college football team, the Virginia Tech Hokies, play.  And as an added bonus, I get to see the leaves change color!  That doesn’t really happen where I live…it’s too warm, so I’ve got to travel to the mountains of Blacksburg to get my fall fix.

This is the stamp set.  It’s called Country Home stamp set. It features a milk can, a pitcher, and bunches of flowers to color, a cute little square that looks like a tin tile and what I call “thankful thoughts”.C95BAD1D-E86B-44BE-BE40-894277E0E414

And it is partnered with the Country Lane Designer Series Paper that is full of beautiful fall colors.  And there are fun things too like Chicken Wire.  The Galvanized Metal Paper and the Tin Tile Embossing folder combined give you this great look….just like a tin tile ceiling!

I’ve already made almost a dozen cards with the set….which I’ll share in my next few posts. Here is one of the cards I made:

I like the combination of Mint Macaron and Cajun Craze…..and the Designer Series paper really plays off both Colors.  I used Stampin’ Blends to color in the flowersand the Milk can
