I love the play on words on this stamp set! My wonderful friend Marisela sent me an early birthday present of new stamps! I know, I’m so very lucky! Of course I just had to start playing, and the first set I’ve used is called You Make MISO Happy, by Jillibean Soup.
First, let me apologize to everyone who lives in a southwestern state! This is my interpretation of what I think of in terms of ‘southwestern’ colours – the warm, rich earth tones, with gorgeous blue highlights and of course the greens of nature. Funnily enough, a lot of these colours are in the Gina K. Autumn Collection of Ink Cubes!
I just love these plant pots and various plants! I can identify the aloe on the left, and cactus on the right, but I’m not sure of the middle plant. Any plant enthusiasts out there?
To make this card super easy, use your MISTI or other stamp platform. First, set up your white cardstock in the platform. Next, line up the 3 plant pots across the bottom third. Ink up the 3 pots using Faded Brick, Honey Mustard and Tomato Soup from the Gina K. Autumn Collection. Now, clean & remove those stamps, and line up the plant images with the pots. Use 3 different green inks; the only one I can remember that I used is the Fresh Asparagus from the collection. Sorry – I forgot to write down the other 2! Next, remove the plant stamps, and line up 2 of the medallion stamps in the top corners. Ink them up in Blue Lagoon ink, and stamp.
For the sentiment, line it up on a strip of white cardstock, and ink it in Sweet Corn ink. Cut the strip to size, and layer it onto a slightly larger strip of terracotta coloured cardstock. Attach the sentiment strip across the top with foam tape. Next, ground the pots by adding shadows underneath them, using a gray marker. Layer the card front onto a piece of bright blue cardstock, and then onto the terracotta colour card base.
I think this is so cute! I’m just in love with those little plant pots 🙂
Thank you again, Marisela, for my wonderful & totally surprising birthday gifts! I’m really enjoying creating with them, and will be sharing more projects made with them.
I don’t have an affiliate supplier for the Jillibean Soup stamps, but I will link below for the other products used to make this card. By the way – anyone else find it interesting that MISO is a Japanese condiment, but the name is in the – what I find to be – southwestern image stamps?
