Simply Sunday: Happy Blessings

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you are enjoying your weekend. I promised to share a sneak peek into the Holiday Catalog so I chose the Country Home stamp set to share with you today.

Just like the name says, this stamp set takes you home to the country. For me, it is the “milk can” that takes me back. Back to my grandpa’s farm and running in the fields on those warm summer days, the smell of grandma’s kitchen as she always had something baking in the oven, and the pretty flowers in the garden … all take me back.

I teamed up the images from the Country Home stamp set with the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series paper. It may be located in the Christmas section of the catalog but I thought it was perfect for my card.  It reminds me of Shiplap!! A little Farmhouse Chic 🙂 What do you think … Will I get a thumbs up from Chip and Joanna Gaines?

I stamped the milk can with VersaMark and embossed it with Silver onto the Galvanized Metallic paper. Next I used the Garden Green Watercolor Pencil and the Aqua Painter to “tarnish” my milk can. The flowers were colored with the Stampin’ Blends, I used the Light & Dark Old Olive, Light & Dark Crumb Cake, Light and Dark Pink Pirouette and Light Crushed Curry. The Stampin’ Blends make coloring so easy and it looks sooo good.

You can see the “tarnish” a little better from this angle … You can also see that I popped up both stamped images (these are two separate stamps). I find coloring very relaxing, and while I was relaxed I didn’t mind cutting out these images and adhering them together. It really does remind me of Farmhouse Chic. The greeting completes the card.

I hope you enjoyed todays card share, and I thank you for sharing a part of your day with me.

Happy Blessings and Have a beautiful day ~
