Happy to Say It is Staying Around....

Today's card is using the Country Home stamp set as well as the Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper.  While the paper is retiring in a few days (January 2, 2019), the Country Home stamp set is being carried over and I couldn't be happier.  I just love this stamp set.  I made this card for a workshop some time ago and just haven't had a chance to post it here with all the Christmas cards I wanted to share with you over the past couple of months.  Finally, here it is!  This is a great set for working with the Blends markers.

Here's a tip for this stamp set.  When stamping the milk jug or pitcher with the flowers/plants together, stamp the flowers/plants first.  It is much easier to line up this way - at least I think so!
It is difficult to see in the picture of the inside of the card but I stamped the plants on the Whisper White insert and colored the cat tails, berries & sprigs.  The leaves and artichoke were stamped on a piece of scrap white and cut out.  I then raised them up using Dimensionals.  It gave it a great depth.
