Fall Clean Up by Shady Tree Studio

Cornish Heritage Farms has several different lines, each created by a different artist. My very favorite is the Shady Tree Studio line. This beautiful scene is called Fall Clean Up, and you can see it soon on CHF. All of Nancy's other gorgeous stamps are here.

I colored this with pencils and OMS, then added Aqua Stickles to some of the green parts, cut out a few apples and popped them up, then added some Diamond Glaze to the popped up apples.

Let's take a moment to talk about Judikins Diamond Glaze. It's a stamping must have, I use it for so many things! First, it adds a beautiful, glassy sheen to images you want to highlight, like the apples on this card. Second, it is an incredible glue! I use it to glue down skittles, flowers, ribbon, anything, really. It will NOT come unstuck if you use Diamond Glaze. Third, you can add color, like reinker, to it to make a colored glaze. If you add a little glitter to that, voila, you have home made glitter glue! Diamond Glaze is one of the items that never leaves the top of my desk-I just don't ever want it to be too far away!!

The base is Bazzill, and all the rest is Cosmo Cricket Love Notes {06}. I added some Copper Stickles, it goes so perfectly with Love Notes, is it any wonder I love this line so much? It looks awesome with copper!!

Pretty card. Hey how long have you been on the Doggone stamps DT? If you tell me a long time I'm embarrassed, if it is new- good for you!

So pretty, love the way you colored this one, very soft. Loving that fun flourish on the side brings out a very shabby chic appearance
