Hello and happy Wednesday! Just a quick look at another project using the Country Home stamp set. This is actually one of the first cards I made with this set. In fact, I didn’t even realize that it had Blackberry Bliss in it!! oops! lol Here are the measurements for my card:
- Card base in Fresh Fig cardstock cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
- Country Lane DSP cut at 2″ x 5 1/2″
- Whisper White cardstock cut at 2 3/4″ x 4 1/2″
Yes, I am guilty of not looking to see what the coordinating colors are on the back of the DSP package!! But you know what? The Fresh Fig works just fine!!! If you look close at the DSP, there are some shades of Fresh Fig in there with the Blackberry Bliss, so it’s all good! I stamped the images in Basic Gray and colored them with my Blends markers. When you use any ink other then Tuxedo Black Memento, you need to be really careful when coloring because the ink you stamp the image with will bleed. As you can see, I was careful and got the job done. The sentiment was stamped in Fresh Fig ink and just brings all the colors together. And of course I had to add bling! This is a really simple card, which when you’re in a hurry, works every time!
I hope you like today’s card. It’s one of those that I think “eh, I could have done better”, but I think I need to share the bad with the good. I hope you have a great Wednesday afternoon and I thank you for stopping by!
