Country Home Cards

1 Comment

Last year I went on a Scrapbooking cruise out of Galvaston, Texas. It was put on by a couple Stampin’ Up Demonstrators. Which I have really never used their products because I’m not a stamper! Well they had some items set up that you could make if you wanted and you were given the products to make them. They had a cute fall hanger but I didn’t need a fall hanger so I took the supplies home and decided I could make cards out of it. So here are three cards I have come up with so far.

I used Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! May 25, 2017 sketch for my inspiration.

Greatful for someone like you

I used Atlantic Hearts Sketch #187 for my inspiration.

Todays the perfect day

Inside: … for thinking happy thoughts of you.

I used My Favorite Things Sketch #318 for my inspiration.

Supplies on all cards:

Stamps: Country Home by Stampin’ Up

Patterned Paper: Country Lane Designer Paper by Stampin’ Up

Cardstock: Bazzill (Cajun, Palo Verde)

Accents/Tools: brads, ribbon, EK Success scallop punch

Just love the 15th of month! No, I don’t get paid BUT I do get to play and show-off  the new fun stamps for the month that was released at Clear Dollar Stamps. This month has been hectic with work and studying for a promotion and life in general so it was nice to take a craft day and play with the new products.

First I played with Angels Digital Image. Our new designer, Austin Owens, sure puts a lot of images and sentiments into her stamps. There was so much to choose from and all so cute… you will be seeing more of this stamp set for sure! I decided to play with the blue and yellow angel. I loved how it turned out….and I already know who I’m sending this to! I used The Deconstructed Sketch #66 for inspiration…love her sketches!


The next digital stamp I got to try out was Leaves Digital Image. I love leaves and fall. My house is done in a leaves theme and color scheme. Makes me happy! Oooohhh, I just gave myself an idea….my something to decorate my house with using this stamp set!!! After life calms down I will have to do just that!!  Okay back to the card I made. This card is special because it is going to one of the pastors our church is praying for. There are actually 2 pastors going through health issues that we are praying for so I wanted to use this stamp to make a card for one of them. I then decided that the “lift” card at the card challenge on would be perfect for this…..and it was. I used the Black and White version of this stamp. To get the leaves the color I wanted them I recolored them on the computer. Here is a tutorial that tells you how to do that.

You know when your husband smiles and nods when he sees it that it turned out pretty good! Now to get it to the church for people to sign!
