Well, the Occasions catalog and SAB have been in full swing for a couple weeks now, and we just can't get enough of the awesome new products! I'm first on the Tour de Freaks blog hop, but you may have landed here from Wendy's Wickedly Wonderful Creations blog. Weren't her creations awesome?! Just follow the links to see all five participating blogs.
I knew immediately which set I wanted to use - HOME TO ROOST. It's in the Sale-a-Bration flyer on page 11. You see, I'm a crazy chicken lady even though I don't have any chickens....YET. I used to have them about 30 years ago, and I WILL get some this year, by golly!
Anyhooo, I loved the rooster image and knew it would be fun to color with Stampin' Blends. I managed to get the iridescent look on his tail feathers by starting with Bermuda Bay, then adding Night of Navy and Basic Black over it. He sure is a handsome 'roo!
For the next card, I just wanted to use the wheat image. It was stamped in Pear Pizzazz, with Mossy Meadow stamped over. The greetings included in this set are a lovely group of "just because" stamps, don't you think?
The Old Olive Linen Thread and Braided Linen Trim worked well together. I thought about coloring the Braided Linen with a Mossy Meadow Stampin' Blend, but then thought it looked fine just as it is on the Crumb Cake DSP.
Up next is Kelly Acheson, at A Stamp Above. I can't wait to see what she's made!
