Oh My !! I knew as soon as I saw the Country Home stamp set that it had to come to my house. But actually playing with it is even better than I expected. And the milk can is my all time favorite. I have an old milk can that my Mother had probably 50 years ago. Another reason I love this set.
I paired this sweet set with the Country Lane Designer Series Paper, as well as the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder. I could not resist using the Cotton in the DSP to pair with the Cotton in the arrangement in the milk can.
A great bonus to his sweet stamp set is that it is photopolymer. This makes aligning images so easy. I was able to perfectly align the flowers on the top of the milk can. Easy Peasy!! I stamped everything in Smoky Slate Ink to have a softer outline. Coloring everything with the Stampin’ Blends is so easy. They leave no lines and you do not need to be a professional to blend them. I thought of dried cotton stems so I went over those with the light Crumb Cake Blend. I don’t believe you can tell from the photo but I used Wink of Stella on the white for the cotton.
