Fall Daisies

Fall Daisies

Fall is absolutely my favorite season. Apples, pumpkins, soups and stews, colorful leaves…what’s not to love? Well, hayrides make me sneeze, but I can live with that.

Last Friday, Amelia got out of school early, so Wesley and I took her to a local farm market. We have a lot of farm markets in this area; this is, after all, apple country. The one we went to Friday has lots of kids to do, particularly play areas – a castle, pirate ship, wooden tractor to play on, swings, and of course, the cow train.

It’s kind of hard to see in this photo, but the cars look like Holstein cattle and it’s pulled by a tractor. Two of the cows are large enough for adults in case a child or two can’t (or doesn’t want to) ride alone. The last time we went, Amelia had a blast riding the train, but, sadly, this time, it wasn’t running. She didn’t seem too disappointed, though. She made several friends and enjoyed the apple cider doughnut holes. I was disappointed; I was hoping she’d want someone to ride it with her and I was ready to volunteer.

I didn’t get much stamping done this weekend, but the fun we had made up for it! Here’s a thank you card I made last month.

Good Morning Magnolia, Stampin' Up!, Daisy Lane

I wanted to use the Daisy Lane Stamp Set, but I also wanted it to feel a little like fall. It looks a little more like fall in real life than it does in the photo!

First, I sponged ink on a black and white design of the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper (DSP) in the Stampin’ Up!® Holiday Catalog. I didn’t write down the colors I used and the card has long since been sent. I’m sure I used Petal Pink and Purple Posy. The darkest color is Highland Heather (I believe).

I stamped the large and small daisies using Highland Heather Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, then sponged colors inside. I used a mix of pinks, purples and blues.

After adding the sponged DSP to a layer of Basic Black Cardstock, I added both layers to a Purple Posy card base. Then I added a strip of Basic Black Cardstock to the front of the card and added the punched daisies with a Pretty Peacock Faceted Dot in the center.

The sentiment – from Good Morning Magnolia – is stamped on Petal Pink Cardstock with Highland Heather Classic Ink and punched with the Tailored Tag punch.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!

    Oh, the cow train is exactly how I imagined it! So cute – too bad it wasn’t running! (I loved riding along with my boys when they were little, too!) I love your daisy card – great colours, and the DSP is very cool!

      Thanks, Deborah! The cow train is adorable – but Amelia told me that she, her dad, and Katelyn went to another market/pumpkin patch yesterday. They also have a train (not a cow train, but still…) and she got to ride that. (There are about five markets about one mile from each other. There are lots around here!) They also got pumpkins to carve Wes did a cat and a character from Nightmare Before Christmas. So awesome! I was happy to just have eyes, nose, and a mouth without cutting off my finger.
