Tuesday Trigger–Farm Fresh

When I looked at this week’s trigger I wanted to make a white card with outlined images in orange and blue (no surprises there!). So I thought very hard about which images to pick but somehow the stamps I had didn’t seem right for what I wanted to do. After much thought I decided to take a risk and picked the small clock from the Hero Arts Cuckoo set. I then stamped a border of orange and blue clocks; but I wasn’t too happy with the result. Instead I took a strip of Spring Rain CS and stamped a border of clocks in black. Now I wanted to pop one of the clocks not just with dimensionals but also with color. This clock which seems to have it’s alarm on supports the “it’s time to” part of the sentiment. Earlier I wanted to put the sentiment inside to create more emphasis on the alarming clock but the outside looked too bare without it.


All the images and sentiment are from Hero Arts Cuckoo stamp set. I love that the set has enough matching sentiments. To stamp the clocks in a straight line, I used a sheet of paper and for every clock I made sure that one of the two knobs on the top of the clock aligned with that paper. The focal image is covered in glossy accents. Yes it looks like I’m on a roll with glossy accents SmileThe lines around the focal image are hand drawn.

  • Stamps: Hero Arts Cuckoo
  • Paper: Papertrey Ink White, Spring Rain, Orange Zest
  • Others: Brilliance Ink, Black pen, Glossy accents, dimensionals.
