Stampin’ Up! Country Home Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today I inked up an old favorite, Country Home stamp set using our color challenge of Pretty Peacock, Cajun Craze and Soft Suede.  Even though we have so many new stamp sets in the annual catalog, I decided to ink up an old favorite.  Please use your older stamp sets in different ways with new paper and products to keep them fresh and new again.  Here is a “new again” old favorite, Country Home with a new twist in using some new products.

 The color challenge:

Stampin’ Up! County Home:

The recipe:

Card base: Whisper White 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2

Stitched Framelit: Cajun Craze (approx) 3 x 4-1/4 (NEW)

Art Piece: Whisper White (approx) 2-5/8 x 4

The details:

the art piece:

  • Stamp your pitcher and floral image from the Country Home Stamp Set onto your Whisper White art piece with Black Tuxedo Memento Ink
  • Color in your floral as follows:
  • Seed pods: Soft Suede Stampin Blends
  • Flower: Cajun Craze Stampin Blends
  • Cotton: Light Smokey Slate Stampin Blend

  • Color in your pitcher with your Cajun Craze Stampin Blends
  •  After your images are colored in, run the art piece through your embossing machine with the Pinewood Planks EF

Putting the card together:

  • Wrap a piece of Pretty Peacock Ribbon (NEW) around the checked Cajun Craze mat
  • Adhere this mat to the front of the card with snail

Finishing touches:

    CASEing! This looks like an arrangement you would have on your table. I think I have only used this stamp set once…time to dust it off! I think your design is great and I love everything about it.

    Just beautiful Kristi! The ribbon is perfect with your rustic flowers and I love the gingham background!
