Hello friends and welcome back! Thank you for understanding my much needed break from blogging these past 10 days. I debated about posting in advance of my planned absence, but, ultimately decided a break from everything was just what I needed! H-E-A-V-E-N it was, by the lake in Maine! I promise you'll be seeing LOTS of creations that I made while on vacation in the upcoming weeks. . .
OMG! Squeeeeeeeal! Rememberin this recent post, how I said Papertrey Ink was killing it this month with their latest release? Allow me to introduce you to "Kind of Corny," another fantastically fall themed stamp set and coordinating dies. When I was growing up, my mother always decorated our front door with corn stalks and Indian corn, so when I saw this stamp set, it was the perfect stamp to re-create my
childhood memories. . . on paper! Now if I could only find the perfect scarecrow. . .
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Crumb Cake cardstock. The first 5 3/8" x 4 1/8" sheet of plaid paper is from the Lawn Fawn Fall collection. I die cut an oval from Crumb Cake cardstock using this Stitched Scallop Oval die from Gina Marie Designs. I die cut an oval from Whisper White cardstock using the Stitched Oval die from Gina Marie Designs and ran it through my polka dot embossing folder (retired). On a sheet of So Saffron cardstock, I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso ink and die cut it using an unknown ribbon banner die.
On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Indian corn in three layers. The first layer of corn was stamped in Daffodil Delight ink, then a layer of Cajun Craze ink and finally a layer ofSoft Suede ink. I stamped the corn husks first in Crumb Cake ink and then in Soft Suede ink.. I then die cut the corn using the coordinating PTI Kind of Corny die. The bow was stamped on Whisper White cardstcock first in Pool Party ink and then in Bermuda Bay ink. I die cut the bow out and adhered it to the corn using Stampin' Dimensionals.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
