Joe and I have been on a remodeling kick and I have to admit the whole Modern Farmhouse craze rocks my world. It's clean! It eclectic! And it's beautiful! The Modern Farmhouse look is humble, welcoming, polished and cheerful all rolled into one. The modern farmhouse look mixes old and new, vintage and modern with a healthy dose of shiplap thrown into the mix. So how can the Modern Farmhouse look be achieved in Paper Crafting and Card Making?
Short Answer: Texture with lots of White Space.
What creates texture best in the Paper Crafting World? Embossing Folders, dies, embossing paste and dimensionals. Don't forget the dimensionals. Just a little bit of pop can add so much to a project.
While the texture is fun and beautiful, don't forget to leave lots of White Space for that clean, fresh look.
Does the stamp set look unfamiliar to you? It's new and it's free starting February 15th with Sale-a-bration. It's the Painted Seasons stamp set included in the Painted Seasons Bundle. On February 15, Stampin' Up! is offering a 2nd Release of fabulous Sale-a-bration products. Note: These are in addition to the previously released products.
I stamped the ferns and the sparkle dots in soft subtle colors (Petal Pink and Soft Sea foam), but I couldn't resist a splash of sunshine when I stamped my flowers, so I ink them with Pineapple Punch Ink. I fussy cut my flowers, but in March you will be able to purchase coordinating dies.
I needed 2 more sets of dies to complete my card. The first is the wildly popular Be Mine Stitched Framelit Dies. You guessed it, I cut my hearts with the Be Mine dies. The second die set is available with a coordinating stamp set and it's all about words. It's the Well Said Bundle. With my Well Said Bundle I cut the Soft Sea Foam "miss" and foliage. I also stamped the word "you".
After stamping on my card base, I added "shiplap" by embossing my card base with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder.
Have a fabulous day,
