Home to Roost

Home to Roost Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

This is first time for me to ink up my Home to Roost stamp set.  I know that the colors of my rooster are probably outrageous, but after what I saw yesterday, anything is possible.  Besides, I think he looks handsome and I had fun coloring him.

Peacock in Ohio

You can imagine how perplexed I was when I saw this guy meandering across my yard yesterday afternoon.  I live in Ohio and it was only 30 something yesterday.  Who knew that peacocks could adapt so well.  For being so proud, this guy sure did not want his picture taken.  I followed him all over my yard before I was able to capture this shot of him.

Home to Roost Stampin' Up!

I watercolored my handsome rooster with a wide array of colors.  The blues are Pacific Point, Blueberry Bushel and Night of Navy.  For the greens, I used Old Olive and Mossy Meadow inks.  His comb was colored with Poppy Parade.

When I think of roosters, I think sunrise and loud Cock-a-doodle-doing, so I sponged a sunrise with So Saffron, Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo and Balmy Blue inks.

Did I mention that the Home to Roost stamp set is available for Free during Sale-a-bration (now through March 3, 2019) with a qualifying purchase?

 

Have a fabulous day,

Make Your Dreams Happen

Make Your Dreams Happen

Hello Friends,

In honor of Martin Luther King  and his I Have a Dream speech, I've made a simple, but sweet Make Your Dreams Happen Card.  The sentiment is from the Sunny Days Stamp.  I stamped on vellum so that you could see the fun patterns and shapes through the sentiment.  The Hearts are the Be Mine Framelits Dies and the happy Designer Paper is Gingham Gala Designer Paper from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog.

Stamping on Vellum Tip

Because vellum is a nonporous surface, the ink will dry considerably slower so drying your ink with a heat or setting it aside to dry is a good idea.  Stazon ink is also made for stamping on non-porous surfaces.


Dream Card by Robin Feicht

For a patriot feel, today's colors are Real Red, Blueberry Bushel, Balmy Blue and Whisper White.  For more inspiration using the Be Mine Framelits Dies check out the 2 posts below.

Wishing You Well Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Are you new to stamping and Card Making?  Or have you been around the block a few times, but still prefer the quick and simple, Back to Basics type cards?  You like to stamp, but your time is limited.  Simply seeing what happens when you combine stamps, ink and paper brings you joy.  If that's you, stop back every Tuesday for a Simple Stamping project here at Stamping Country.

One of my very favorite stamp sets for Simple Stamping is the Wishing You Well stamp set.  I especially like to stamp the bow.  Tap, tap, tap your stamp to your ink pad, apply to your paper and watch the magic.  The Wishing You Well bow almost looks 3-D.
