Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog Country Home

Another favorite stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog is the Country Home set.  I used it for a recent card swap and totally enjoyed using my Stamparatus and Blends Markers to create duplicates of this beautiful card.

You can download free copies of the Stampin' Up! Holiday and Annual catalog, at this link.  

The Stamparatus stamp positioning tool made creating a large number of cards so much faster than free-hand stampin' each image.  There were also no "mistake" -- half stamped images or sentiments; no misaligned flowers and milk can.   If you haven't invested in a Stamparatus yet, get one before you start your Holiday cards.  You'll be so happy you did!  I made over 55 swap cards in less than a week,  This was one of the card 5 designs I made.  Normally my wrists would require ice and several days of rest after that much stamping.  The Stamparatus made it possible for me to finish 5 different sets of cards in record time, with far less strain on my wrists!  My Stamparatus is one of my best stampin' investments yet!

If you order this stamp set, I also recommend you look at the coordinating Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I used it to dry emboss a piece of Silver Foil Sheet to add an accent along the left edge of my card.  You'll love the stunning results you can create with this embossing folder.  The Holiday catalog also includes several new Blends Marker colors.  You'll want to add  them all to build out your Blends colors collection.



Directions for today's card:
  • Mint Macaron basecard  
  • Next layer is a dry embossed section piece of Silver Foil sheet using the Tin Tile embossing folder.
  • The next layer is Cajun Craze.
  • The final layer showcasing the image is Whisper White.
  • The image is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink
  • The image is colored with Light Smoky Slate Blends, Light & Dark Old Olive Blends, Light Cajun Craze Blends, and Light Crumb Cake Blends

  • The sentiment is also from the Country Home stamp set.  Its stamped in Cajun Craze ink.
  • Three Silver Metallic Pearls were added around the image.  
This stamp set includes 8 different sentiments in addition to the lovely images.  You'll find yourself reaching for this set to create cards and packaging over and over for different Fall occasions.  You'll find more ideas for using the entire Country Lane Suite on pages 42-43 in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Holiday Catalog. This was one of the first sets to go on my Holiday Catalog Wish List, and it hasn't disappointed.
