It's Time for a Hayride

Today is release day for Artistic Outpost new September Release. The new sets include Hayride and Christmas Chalk

I am sharing a tag using the new Hayride set::
I started with a wood grain misted background.  I added the windmill from The Outpost and repeated the grass to finish the grass line.   I stamped the tractor and popped it up in the foreground.  I added the sentiment from the Old Grist Mill plate.

I was having fun with the plate and decided to create a pumpkin patch:
I used the boy image and pumpkins from the Hayride plate.  I added the farm from the Country Life plate.  I stretched the fence to the left.  I added the sentiment from the Typography plate.

The Christmas Chalk plate has some beautiful sentiments that make beautiful tags and easy Christmas cards::

I stamped the sentiment and other images on a wood grain pattern paper using Versamark.  I embossed the images  with white embossing powder.  I cut it out and layered the the image onto white cardstock. .  I added a touch of raffia and was done.  A quick and easy card for my holiday cards.

Hop along to see all the wonderful inspiration from the rest of the design team:

Have a fabulous day!
