For today’s card I was inspired by the card on page 159 of the 2017-2018 annual catalog featuring the fabulous and new Wood Crate Framelits #143730. I love this Framelit and thought I could do without the stamp set so I did not buy the coordinating Wood Words set. Big Mistake! It always seems like when I don’t buy the bundle I regret it.
For this card, I stamped the background with an image from a stamp set that has been retired for years. I think it is called Home Grown. I then used the Wood Crate to cut it out from the Wood Textured DSP #144177 and made the crate. I added the hand cut carrots and added carrot tops using the retired bird builder punch. I finished with a tag tied with linen thread.
Sometimes the Stampin Up paper is just too pretty to cover up. For today’s post this Farmers Market DSP #138448 speaks for itself and can stand alone to make a beautiful card. I just added a piece of ribbon and a layered element using the retired Homegrown stampset. This card was one of many simple Farmers Market cards.
Once again I went to the Stampin Up Farmers Market DSP collection to make this card. The DSP is so fantastic that it really does not need much to make a nice card. I added the artichoke stamp from the now retired Home grown stamp set.
For similar card. I used the now retired DSP and randomly stamped artichokes from the Homegrown stampset and then added a strip of always artichoke cardstock and the Fabulous Four stampset #134171
I love to mix patterned paper and Stampin Up DSP collections take the guess work out of the equation. Nothing says down home like gingham from the Farmers Market DSP #138448. I added a strip of polka dot from the same collection and then used the now retired Stampin Up Homegrown set to add a country flair with a homegrown tomato for a simple thanks.

The homegrown stamp set #120486 was one of my favorites from the Stampin Up IBC but one that I seldom use. Today Cammie used the homegrown stamp set using black and white images and then layered it on top of a black top note #113463 and then onto a crumbcake card base. She finished the card with a piece of crumb cake 1/2 inch seam binding #122332. Love this clean and simple card that I just may go dust off my homegrown set and play.
Today’s post is the first of the color coach challenge using More Mustard, Cajun Craze, and Night of Navy. I selected this color combination so I could use the beautiful Sunflower background stamp that I won in July at Convention. I could not believe that Cammie had the same stamp set in mind and the cards look so different. Yvonne’s twist on the color combination was also a fall like theme. Three cards using the same combination and all look equally great!. Tomorrow’s color coach challenge will reveal the cards using Tangerine Tango
