Patience, grasshopper.


Today I'm going to show you a card I made using the new Kim Hughes Summer Trees set from Cornish Heritage Farms. But you'll have to be patient because the stamps won't be released until May 7th!!

On this card I used the new Basic Grey Lime Ricky papers and did some paper piecing with the stamps.

Today's tip: Add some shading to your patterned paper using Copic markers or pencil crayons. As you can see on both the tree and the grasshopper stamp I used a green pencil to add more dimension.

Check back later this week for a few more designs I did with this super cute set.

Supplies:
Stamps: Kim Hughes Summer Trees by Cornish Heritage Farms, Kim Hughes Collage Elements by Cornish Heritage Farms
Papers: Basic Grey Lime Ricky
Accessories: Nestabilities dies, Kohinoor pencils (for shading)
