Hi Crafty Friends,
The new Holiday catalog is so chocked full of wonderful new stamp sets it is very hard to decide what to use next! One very popular new set is the Country Home stamp set. If you do a search on pinterest you will find loads of wonderful creative ideas already available to CASE. Here is my first creation using this set:
This stamp set offers you many ways to truly make a pretty, country inspired card. The new Tin Tile Embossing folder is AWESOME! It looks just like that old fashioned tin tile roof we used to see in the stores of yesteryear. I have seen so many truly amazing creations to get a distressed look on this. I used the new Galvanized Metallic Paper with the embossing folder and then adding some Gray Granite over the top with a dauber to give it only a slight tinge of being worn. It is hard to see it in this photo. The old style milk can was stamped in memento ink and then colored in with Smoky Slate light and dark Blends. I tried to make it appear the light was hitting the can from the left and added more shading to the right side. The thanks sentiment is one of 4 options that fit in the oval label stamp. There are two different flower arrangement options in this stamp set, but I chose the one with plenty of leaves. I colored those in with Old Olive Blends and the Flower was colored in Rich Razzleberry Blends. The Cat Tails were colored in with Crumb Cake Blends. I decided to add a doily to the back o the stamped image and finished it off with the new Galvanized Metal Buttons and some Linen Thread.
If you get this stamp set you could easily make it rustic, country and maybe even a little elegant.
I hope this helps you find some inspiration in your crafts!
