In my last post I said that one of the things I really love about this range of stamps is how they can be used together.  To demonstrate, I've chosen some of the most recent stamps and used them in a picture with stamps from a winter themed collection to show what I mean.

So the gate, wellies (love the wellies!!), hot air balloon and light bulbs were all released just before easter 2017.  The big top tent, fir trees and ferris wheel come from a winter collection released (I think) just before christmas 2016.  There's no reason you can't mix and match.  And it works.  

The grass is from "Hedgerow" from a different company, Craftwork Cards.  Although Card-io have a few foliage stamps you can use to build up the foreground, I like this tall grass stamp.  It applies nice and quickly and you can add variation by using a couple of different greens when you are inking the stamp up.  Here I used the mini Green Tea and Pinecone from Versacolour.  You can see how in the video below.  Enjoy!
