Stampin' Addict 2015 New Catalog Blog Hop: Market Fresh
Well, we are just over a month in to the new catalog, which has given us a chance to whip up some great projects with  the new goodies to inspire you! Me and some of stampin friends at Stampin' Addicts have come together to put on this hop and can't wait to share our creations. There is a chat thread set up if you want to share some thoughts over on

If you are following along in order, then you just came from Carmen's blog where she featured Watercolor Wings. Fantastic, right?!

The set I chose to feature just screams summer to me! Market Fresh is full of lush produce, and some punny sayings ;)

Let's start with a couple of lovely wine bottle tags. Both images are stamped on Very Vanilla with a waterproof ink, such as Stazon, and then colored with a blender pen. For the one on the left, I also created a mask for the image, then using the new masks from the catalog, sponged the background of the entire tag.

I was on a roll making tags, so here are a few more. These are made out of watercolor paper and colored with an Aqua-painter. More sponged backgrounds with the new stencil pack.

You  will also notice that the sentiment on the strawberry image is not the one on the stamp. Lots of people have commented on the possible interpretations of "Just Ripe for You", so I decided to carefully cut that part of the stamp out with my Snips to start the hole, and my rubber scissor to finish the job. And guess what? There are loads of sentiments that fit in the banner! Anything from And Many More...and Teeny Tiny Wishes, one from Watercolor Wings, several from Sprinkles of Life, and so many more!

Then, since this set is so Farmers Market, I had to:
  1. Make a berry basket and stamp some grapes on it.
  2. Use the Farmers Market DSP!
This little basket is full of cute little 3"x4" cards with matching envelopes. You could fill it with any kind of goodies, but since I was creating for a hop, why not more cards?!

Here are the first three of the six cards I made. The images are all on watercolor paper, colored with Aqua-painters and ink squeezed off ink pads, then fussy cut.

And here are the last of the cards I made. I love to watercolor, so this was such a fun set for me to play with! And you can see, these make adorable cards, especially when paired with the coordinating DSP!

That's all I have this time. Head on over to Holly's blog where she will show her stuff with Garden in Bloom!

Great projects as always! Very pretty and water-coloring is awesome. The berry basket is so cute with the image stamped on it. :)

LOVE your designs!! Beautiful watercoloring and details. And yes, I had no intention of buying this set because of the "ripe" thing, but of course--change the sentiment. Great idea!

Pam said...

Love your cards and basket, super idea to cut the sentiment out too!!!

Natalie Kennedy said...

Such beautiful cards and tags, Tanya! I loved your clever tip about the sentiment.
