I grew up on a farm, so the love of all things farm related has been ingrained in me from birth. When I saw this stamp set from Raisin Boat (after I was done swooning), I knew I had to have it! Homegrown is such a beautiful stamp for all things farm! I most definitely plan to use this on some scrapbooking layouts in the future, but for now, I was inspired by the corn stalk.
Here in the midwest, I believe corn harvest is about wrapped up. We've seen so much corn lately, that I thought I'd capitalize on that natural beauty.
I started by stamping my corn stalk in multiple colors, even using some second generation stamping. Once I was happy with my arrangement, I cut an oval shape, and then an additional oval shape for matting.
I added some natural colored twine near the bottom of the corn stalks, and finished that off with a bow.
Inking the edges made the corn pop more off the paper; so I inked all the edges of the cream colored paper in coordinating colors.
I like the sentiment Heaven on Earth as I think it will make the card very versatile. I can see using it for many different occasions.
I added a patterned paper as the background on this 5"x7" card, and then I finished it with some matching brown brads.
Have you seen our new mood board? It's a beautiful one! Join in on the fun for All Tied Up.
Thanks for joining me today!
