Summer Garden release at Colorado Craft Company

 


Hello there!

I'm excited to be joining this month's new Summer Garden release blog hop with Colorado Craft Company. The new collection features nine stamp sets by Anita Jeram, as well as their coordinating dies, all focused on the fun gardening theme. To celebrate this release 3C is giving away a new stamp set from each stop on the hop, so the more you comment the more chances you have to win. Not only that, but they will also be giving away a stamp set to three random commenters over on Instagram. Entries will be accepted until midnight mountain time March 19th and winners will be randomly selected by 3C and announced on their blog March 21st. They are also doing a HUGE complete bundle giveaway to ONE lucky winner. To be entered for that you have to use one of the designer's affiliate links when you place an order. Those links can be found on the 3C blog and will be included in one of their emails as well. In the mean time, here's the complete list of hop participants for you to check out:

I've got three cards to share with you today. The first features adorable bunnies from the Carrot On and Veg Out stamp sets. Together they are harvesting a bumper crop of their most favorite crunchy garden treat. I've also stamped one of the border lines of grass from the Greener Grass set behind them to help separate the rich garden dirt from the field beyond. The sentiment was pulled from the Garden Therapy set because it was too perfect not to use with these happy gardeners. 

 

For my second card I paired the sweet guinea pigs from the Peas Forgive Me set with some extra heads of lettuce from the Veg Out set. These friendly farmers love their leafy greens and they take great pride in the blue ribbon worthy produce that they grow. Once again, I added another border of grass in the background from the Greener Grass set, as well as a couple tufts up front to help add depth to this cute scene. Anyone else craving a salad now? LOL

 

Finally, the bunny from the Rooting For You set is busy digging up all of the turnips, potatoes and onions from her garden. She's been patiently waiting all season for this day and now she can't wait to create some magic in the kitchen using all of these delicious ingredients. Once again you will find the Greener Grass set making an appearance bordering the fence line that I sketched into the scene.

Ok, time to send you on your way. I hope this new release has you excited about getting a little dirt under your nails or at least making a card or two about it.  ;)
