A very warm welcome to the October Artisan hop! This month we are showcasing the beautiful Country Home Suite and I have absolutely loved using this stamp set and coordinating products.
For the first card I have used the Chicken Wire Elements, which are just lovely as they are with the silver or white side. However, I wanted to coordinate this with the cooper look. To do this I have used Versamark on the white side of the chicken wire and added the copper embossing powder. You could also use the shimmer paints, however the embossing powder gave this more dimension.
The copper milk churn was created by stamping on the the copper foil in StazOn on and then hand cutting this out. The background has been embossed with the Tin Tile embossing folder – a new favourite of mine!
The Christmas Tags Thinlit creates 16 little tags in one run through of the big shot, so perfect all year around for cute little tags with any set. Simply cut out the tags in Whisper White and you then have them on hand to add to your projects.
This next card was very relaxing to make. I have firstly stamped the background randomly (in Memento Ink) and then filled the space between with the Petal Pink Blends to make the white images pop. again, I have used a strip of whisper White embossed with the Tin tile folder and added a cute tag from the Christmas Tags Thinlits die.
Last but not least, I have stamp the single tile stamp in the coordinating colours (Gray Granite, Powder Pink and Copper) and cut out the single tiles to layer together along the bottom of the card. The splatters are a touch of the copper shimmer paint one an aqua painter taped over the top off the card – an easy technique to add a touch of sparkle.
I hope you have enjoyed these cards as much I enjoyed making these.
I am now sending you on over to the fabulous Jenni Pauli & enjoy the hop and all the beautiful inspiration from the Artisan Design Team
