My Favorite Stamp Set - Hopping Around the World!

I am so very happy to be hopping with this lovely group of stampers for the month of November.   And, loving this theme of sharing our favorite stamp set with all of you.  Even though I do not have "one" favorite - I am sharing one of my very favorite stamp sets today.  I love this Country Home set - and have used it many times - the Milk Can really caught my eye, as hubby grew up on a dairy farm and we have several milk cans from that time.
Mostly I have made only Fall themed cards, as it lends itself so well to that - but then I saw a few Christmas cards made with it on Pinterest and fell even more in love!   So really, just by changing up the colors,  you can really extend the use of this set.  I ended up making this one for one of my Christmas card classes.  It uses the Corrugated 3D embossing folder with Real Red Cardstock for the background layer; and Crumb Cake for the flagged banner.  The pitcher and the arrangement in it were colored with Blends, then I fussy cute the bouquet and popped it up - adding a little ribbon for good measure.
Below is how we finished the inside of this card -you can see it opens from the side - which also gives it special character.
I hope you enjoyed this card - but don't stop now - be sure to hop through our group to see all the beautiful projects made with favorite Stampin' Up! stamp sets.  All you need to do is click on their link.  ~Maureen
