Stamp Simply Harvest

It's Harvest Time for this week's Stamp Simply Challenge Nov. 19 --ssnotime166--Well Preserved--"Is anyone out there still canning, or freezing or drying your summer harvest? Or is anyone preparing those previously preserved goodies for Thanksgiving or Christmas gifts? Today is all about preserving our fruits of the harvest. Take this food related theme wherever it brings you -- use food type stamps, papers or embellishments on a card, decorate a jar of canned goods, or even wrap and decorate a chocolate bar -- we're easy! Let's just see some lovely fruits, veggies or any type of edible in today's creations!!!"

My design features JustRite's new cling stamp set "A Day in the Country." What a great image to color! JR's new cling stamps are deeply etched red rubber and come on a handy dandy storage card! I've yet to purchase the storage boxes, but will do so very soon.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored it with Copic Sketch markers, then die cut it with Spellbinders Classic Oval dies.

Take a gander at the fabulous Cosmo Cricket "Wanted" decorator papers! The colors and prints are subdued and worn...second hand GREAT! A bit of stitching, distressing and sponging make for quick texture and interest.

May Art's Natural Twine with vintage button wrap up this design!

All supplies used today are from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.
