Earthen Textures - OSAT Pick Two and Something New Blog Hop

 Welcome to Corner of Plaid and Paisley where I have been creating cards with the new Earthen Textures Bundle for the One Stamp at a Time Blog hop!

This month's theme for the blog hop is Pick Two and Something New.   We are to be using two core colors and one new In Color for this challenge. (neutrals don't count!)

I choose to work with the Earthen Textures Bundle with the two core colors of Crumb Cake and Misty Moonlight and the new In Color of Copper Clay.

On the first card I started with a Crumb Cake card base, the next layer is a nice denim/wood look DSP from the Let's Go Fishing DSP pack - by far my favorite piece of DSP!!!  I would make all my cards with this paper if I could!!  Anyone who knows me - knows I like denim!!
Next, I did a mat layer of Misty Moonlight and another DSP piece from the Let's Go Fishing pack of 12"x12" paper - it is a real faint map - this is my background piece to the vases or pots.  Some of the pots are with the Earthen Elegance DSP and some with the Fishing DSP.   I filled the pots with some Early Espresso sticks,  Crumb Cake palm spears, and Copper Clay needle branches all cut with the Earthen Textures Dies.  I used the Natural Wavy Trim to decorate one of the pots and added some In Color Dots to finish off this card.
For my second card I used the Gone Fishing Die for the tackle box lid and cut off the hinge parts to make a curio box display for my pots and branches.
I had to modify the large pot by cutting it down two different ways to get short enough vessels to fit in the top left hand corner!  

Now let's check out what the other creative card maker's have come up with!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.
