Combining Old & New with Joni

Hello everyone, Joni here sharing a project today that combines old and new stamp sets. I combined the newly released Garden Buddies with an old time fave Happy Harvest. Sometimes, with so many new stamp sets releasing, we tend to forget to use the old ones that we used to love. With this card I also used the Garden Buddies and Happy Harvest Companion Dies.

I started by distressing a white cardstock panel using Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap for the ground and Colorbox Ocean for the sky. For added interest, I added some dots using Copics for the ground and a few "flicks" to create some grass. I stamped the sunflower image from Happy Harvest directly on the card panel as well the sentiment.

The girl and and boy from Garden Buddies were stamped onto a separate piece of card stock, colored with Copics, and then die-cut with the companion die. Same goes for the wheelbarrow.

I adhered each one to the card front using foam tape for dimensions.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Really neat card! Great reminder not to abandon our older supplies, too. :) Love the coloring on the boy & girl. Tfs! ~ Andrea

  2. Really cute ca d Joni! The ground is awesome, I love how detailed it is. Yes, sometimes I want to sell some of my stamps, but then someone makes a card using them, then I want to make a card. If I had sold them I wouldn't be able to. I tell myself that, so I don't call myself a hordes, lol. Thanks for inspiring.

  3. Joni, so fresh! and new combined with old = plenty of sweetness!

  4. This is so adorable, Joni! Love your sweet scene! I haven't had Happy Harvest out in ages. Thanks for the reminder to bring out some of the old favorites.
