Homegrown Harvest

Yesterday, the goodies I had ordered from Stampin' Up! arrived.  We all know that feeling - new toys to play with!  This fun stamp set called Homegrown is awesome.  I love it. 


I used this Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #9:

And the colors in this photo as inspiration, from The Shabby Tea Room #22:


Because of the oval sentiment and shapes of the tomatoes and the artichoke, I was also able to play at Alphabet Challenge Blog's "O is for Ovals". 

Can't wait to play with more of my new stamps!
Have a wonderful day, and thanks for joining me.  I really appreciate your time.  :)

Happy Stamping,
Colleen

Oooooo, how fun--new goodies to play with!!! And I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the first card you made with them. That homegrown set truly IS awesome :) I was just thinking yesterday that I don't have any veggie stamps, and I think I should (have some, that is). Wouldn't this be a great candidate for me?? Hmmm . . . Anyway, super job on all of these challenges. You are definitely getting the hang of combining them! Colleen Dietrich, professional challenge combiner :) Love your color scheme--makes this look truly old fashioned and homespun.

O.K., this is just a simply gorgeous card. I love the images and I can imagine that it took a while to cut, even with the sharp scissors.

What a great card! I love how you layered the veggies on the fence and the gingham is the perfect background! Thanks so much for playing in the Tea Room this week!

What an adorable card! I love that checked paper and the scalloped edge and the wonderful picket fence, and how awesome are those stamps? I adore the collage you created with them and love the wrapped twine, too. Great take on our challenge this week in the Tea Room. thanks for playing along with us.

So lovely! What a fun use of the veggie images -- and they must have taken awhile to cut out! Totally worth it though! Fab card! Thanks for playing along with the WMS sketch this week!
