Country Lane

Hi stampers!  It's been quiet around here.  We've been busy with Ian's birthday last week and my parents were here who also always keep me busy :-)  I suppose using the Country Lane suite is appropriate today because Ian went home with Granny and Grandpa to the farm!  I'm ALONE for the first time since we moved to Oklahoma (and longer than that lol)!  I thought I'd get a lot of stamping and blogging done but of course, that's yet to many things on my to do list lol!  But I had to post today, an IG follower asked to see something from this suite so here it is!

I stamped and colored this as soon as I got my order but the one side is cut off a little so I set it aside but I decided it was too pretty to not use!  It's made for the Blends'll see some new colors from the Holiday Catalog.

I also used the new Galvanized Metallic Paper and it's so cool!  I was a little skeptical since we already have silver but this is so different!  It's shiny yet more matte at the same time and really does look like galvanized metal!  Pair it with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder (say that 10 times fast lol) and it's amazing!  I also dabbed it with a little Copper Shimmer Paint which is new!  We have had it in the past (and I still have mine) but not in this color!  And here's a tip; if your paint daubs on too heavy, just use a paper towel to blend it around a little bit.

I'm trying to limit my DSP purchases because I never use enough of it so I actually didn't get the paper that coordinated with this suite, but it IS so pretty!  Instead, I used some of the Share What You Love DSP.  Don't forget to mix and match in your suites!

I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek and I hope I get some time to sit down and create today ;-)

Happy stamping!

Thanks for your comments. I probably won't respond unless you ask a direct question (because I know my limits, lol) but I read and appreciate every single one <3
