I have another Country Home stamp set card today. I really am loving this set. For today I combined Country Home with Love What You Do stamp set. I almost named the post Country Pitcher, LOL! The pitcher reminds me of the old blue metal dishes that were speckled and usually had a tad of rust on them. Am I dating myself? HaHa. Anyway, I turned it into a vase.
Isn’t that Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper just beautiful? Stampin’ Up! continues to top themselves on the beauty of the DSP. This pack has each sheet with one side that is either pearly or copper. It is just “WOW!!
Because I wanted a blue pitcher, I chose to focus on the blue of the DSP. My base card is Blueberry Bushel. I have used it before, but when I put it with this DSP it just seemed to brighten. My coloring is with the Stampin’ Blends. I love how they seem to blend themselves and do not leave lines. I am definitely not a great blender!
To finish off the card I knew it needed something but I did not want to cover up the DSP. So I added the Pearlized Doily. It sort of blended into the paper, so I backed it with a Blueberry circle. The sentiment is stamped and backed with Blackberry Bliss. I added just a single pearl to go with the pearlized paper and doily.
Thank you for visiting today! I very much appreciate it. I have a complete supply list at the bottom of the page. Also I have included the measurements just below. Thanks again and please stop back tomorrow.
