Jar of Pink Buffalo

Pretty catchy title for my post, isn’t it? I needed to show this photo to someone, so I was searching my previous posts. I was just so sure that I had already blogged it…but I guess not! So, here it is…in all it’s pink glory. I just love the Buffalo Check background stamp and I am tickled pink (haha…see what I did there?) that it is carrying over from the Holiday catalog! Yay!

Country Home with a Coastal Twist for the Joy of Sets October Blog Hop

Banner

I am super excited to be participating in my second The Joy of Sets Blog Hop.  This month’s blog hop features the Holiday Catalog. You undoubtedly are joining me from Kim Oliver’s page and after mine, you’ll head over to Alejandra Gomez’s page. Links are below to help you hop along.

I adore so many products in the new catalog, but I have been absolutely in love with the Country Home suite since the moment I laid eyes on it. I knew I would feature that suite for this blog hop. I’ve made several cards already using autumn colors. You can see those posts here:
Grandma’s Galvanized Country Home
Tin Tile Country Home
Country Home with the Watering Can
Country Home with the Milk Jug

This time, though, I wanted to brighten it up and show that it is a beautiful set that can be used all year long. This is perfect for the spring or summer time as well.

Coastal Country Home
Here’s a close up of the flowers so you can get a better view of the Wink of Stella I added to them. The shimmer from that, along with the silver detail in both the Galvanized Clips and the Silver & Pool Party Baker’s Twine  really makes it stand out.

Tranquil Buffalo

Another first inking of a stamp from the Holiday Catalog. This Buffalo Check background stamp is so much fun! It reminds me of all the plaid flannel shirts my dad had. And I’m going to take a brief moment to show one of my favorite photos of my 3 children and my niece. We were visiting my niece and all 4 of them just happened to put on plaid shirts the same day! Kinda scary, huh?

Tranquil Buffalo Cousins
This card is a quick and easy one that will have no problems being sent to a friend in Canada. I try to make cards as flat as possible when sending them outside the U.S. To keep it special, I added some of the silver stars from the Twinkle Adhesive Backed Sequins pack. I love doubling up on the Happy Birthday die cut and having the bottom dark color off-set to look like a shadow.

Tranquil Buffalo
Stamp Set:  Buffalo Check
Cardstock:  Balmy Blue, Tranquil Tide
Ink:  Balmy Blue
Lovelies:  Twinkle Adhesive Backed Sequins
Tools:  Happy Birthday Thinlits, Big Shot, Precision Base Plate, Big Shot Die Brush

Grandma’s Galvanized Country Home

My stamp club met last night. I knew I wanted to share my love of the Country Home suite with them, so this is the card I had them make. I had not used the Galvanized Metallic Paper prior to making this card…and WOW! I wish I had opened the package sooner! It is absolutely gorgeous! Using the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder is awesome, too. It reminds me of an old-fashioned kitchen backsplash you’d see in Grandma’s farm house!

Frosty Tiles & Winter Trees

I am so excited about all the fun new products in this year’s 2018 Holiday Catalog! When I spied the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder, I knew it would be mine. The Winter Woods bundle, though, was not on my radar…until Miss Hunter said I needed it because the trees are different than the trees in the sets I already have. She’s such an enabler! I am so glad I did, though, because she is absolutely right…and who doesn’t love it when there are coordinating dies so there’s no need to fussy-cut?

Shimmery Winter Trees

Another new product that caught my eye is the Shimmer Paint. If you flip through the catalog too quickly, you just might miss it on page 38. There are 4 colors to choose from. I picked Frost White, but I am most definitely adding the other colors to my list! I shook the bottle, then used a sponge dauber and tapped it into the lid so I wouldn’t get too much paint on it. I sponged it onto the background layer after embossing it with the Tin Tile.

Shimmer Paint with Close Up

I am all-around thrilled with this card and the blending of two bundles – Farmhouse Christmas on pages 12-13 and Winter Woods on page 27.

Tin Tile Country Home

I hope you aren’t tired of this stamp set yet, because I am addicted to it! I just love coloring it with the Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers. The blending is so easy! This card features an awesome background impression that is achieved with the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder. It’s the perfect backdrop for this milk can of flowers. I am counting down the days until I can share pictures of the suite online!
