Bluebird and Apples


Another little peek at a new set that will be released on September 1 by Cornish Heritage Farms. This one is called "Can It" and is from their All Things Considered (ATC) line. The main image actually uses two stamps from the set - the vintage apple label and the apple basket with the bluebird. (Okay, I don't KNOW that it's a bluebird, but as we established in a previous post, if I color the bird blue and call it a bluebird, then that counts, right? LOL!! You could just as easily color it brown and red and call it a robin, *wink*.) Anyway, I stamped the images close to each other so that they looked like a single image, then colored them with Copics. For the other panel I used the Newspaper Ads Scrapblock from CHF. I liked the way both of these panels had that same rising sun motif in them (you may have to click on the photo to get an up-close peek at that - I know, it's a tiny little sun... am I obsessive or what LOL!). The patterned paper on the bottom is from Basic Grey's June Bug 6x6 tablet. I made the apple paper by repeatedly stamping the little apple from the School Primer set (ATC Collection from CHF), and coloring with Copics. Just a fun little card for anytime.

Very cute card, but of course I would be coloring that bird in the brown and red combo you mentioned ;-)

Love the autumn feel! (You re-affirmed my recent decision to order the newspaper ad scrapblock--it looks so good here)
