Bushel and a Peck

Did you get the stamp of the month for June yet? Oh, she is a cutie and the pie is delicious! You will have so much fun using the images from this set and will find the perfect sentiment as well. Take a look at all the different uses I've found.

I mixed all sorts of the new papers with just a little bit of some old papers with cardstock. I found that the images looked wonderful using both alcohol markers and a waterbrush pen with ink pad. You could also use watercolor pencils, whatever you wish to experiment with. {Just remember to stamp in archival or memento black ink so there will be no bleeding.}

I used some Beautiful Friendship paper for this one. I stayed a little stronger on the pink side of it.

How about a pop of light glacier blue with some brick pattern from the Documented collection! Cute!

Here are some more documented papers, but what's that? Did I sneak in a stamp for the August Stamp of the Month! {I love crafting}

This background paper looks like watercolor which I could have done myself, but the older Chelsea Gardens paper is already done for me. So soft and pretty with those vibrant green apples and leaves!

I love the pop of red on the subtle blue and green, plus that lacy ribbon gives it a vintage vibe.
{papers: Fresh Air, Documented & Postcard Perfect}

Here is the Beautiful Friendship paper again, but it really comes to life when popped with the canary yellow!

An old wood grain paper really makes these red apples pop, but all together it is a nice simple thank you card!

Lastly, when paired with the Fresh Air papers she is ready for Fall! I hope I remember to get this stamp out again when creating some autumn inspired cards. That means if you don't get it now, you won't have it at all for your fall projects either!
