Vegetable Garden...

Welcome to the first group post of the June 2013 Papertrey Ink countdown.  In case you're not familiar with group posts, it's a day that all of the Papertrey Ink team members create projects using one (or more) of the new sets being released this month.  Today we are featuring a new set called Vegetable Garden.  If you're familiar with the Garden Variety or Garden Variety II sets, this is a vegetable addition to those great classic floral/seed packet sets.  This set is designed by Nichole and contains several beautiful vegetable images.  It will be available for purchase from the Papertrey Ink website on June 15th at 10pm eastern time.  

Nichole challenged each of us to create two projects, one project using one of the seed packet dies, and a second project that combines Vegetable Garden with an older set. First up, let me show you my card using Vegetable Garden along with one of the seed packet images.  

I used the seed packet from Garden Variety II along with the radishes from Garden Variety.  I love radishes...they scream summer to me, both their color and flavor.  I remember my mom growing them in our garden and loving their spicey-ness.  Now I'm the only one in our house that likes them, so once in a while when our neighbors bring some from their garden I get them all to myself.  :-) 


I inked the radishes with two ink colors - Pure Poppy and Scarlet Jewel for the redish one and Raspberry Fizz with Plum Pudding for the pinkish one.  I even added a bit of Rustic Cream twine to the tips of the radishes to mimic their roots.

Up next is my project that combines Vegetable Garden with a previously released set.  I chose to combine it with Comfort Food for a fun get well card.  What's better when you're sick than some hot vegetable soup?


I used the large frame die from Fabulous Frams as the base for my foody concoction.  The paper behind it is from Jillibean Soup's Fresh Vegetable Soup collection and it's perfect for this new set!  The sentiment is from Think Big Favorites #22.
