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

Yes, I know it is NOT December 1st but Laurie at Doodle Pantry decided to release the stamps earlier and have a SALE at the same time!!! How AWESOME is that!! And she asked me to stay on through January as a Guest Designer!! Yippee!! I was so glad because there are several stamps being released this month that I wanted!!

I then got to play with Mustache SVG file. There is also a digital image Mustache Mish Mash if you would rather have it as an image.  I saw the hat/heart/mustache ideal on the internet and liked it. Then I saw the saying on a different site and liked it. So I decided to combine the two into my own unique card! I used the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Sketch #145 as my inspiration.

Mustache - love you

I’m so excited for the Doodle Pantry 40% sale….I have made my list of “really must need” stamps and now I can get more before having to save up more of my allowance! Check out the store I’m sure you will find “really must have” stamps that you can add to your wish list for Christmas!!

It is release day at Clearly Digi Stamps!  I will show you three new release today and one tomorrow! (I was really inspired by all the awesome new releases!!)  I’m going to start with the one that I just had fun with! When I saw Hoppy Frogs Digital Image this ideal popped in my head so I went with it!!


INSIDE: There is one in every bunch!!

I’m sure you can think of one person this card would be perfect for!!

I used Card Maps Sketch March 2010 as my inspiration.


1) Aug Card Sketch Challenge @ – sketch #2

The second card I started to make a school theme card but it just wasn’t working for me. So I switched gears and made it a fall Thank you card. Just goes to show you how versatile digital images can be.  I used Apple Hedgehog Digital Image. I was inspired by MOJO Monday Sketch #275



1) -August Card Challenge – Sketch

The third card is a baby card! A friend of mine needed a baby girl card so I decided the sheep would make a cute baby card. She decided she wanted it to be more pink so I will use this card for the upcoming babies at church! I used New Pastures Digital Image and The Deconstructed Sketch #111 for my inspiration.
