It's time for the August Ink & Share Blog Hop and this month we are sharing a preview of the new products from the 2018 Holiday Catalog, which will launch September 5th. This blog hop features projects from Stampin' Up! demonstrators all over the world and we hope that our ideas will help inspire you with your own creative projects. You may have just visited Karen's blog or perhaps you are beginning your journey here with me. I hope that enjoy this month's projects.
With Fall just weeks away, I thought I would share a card created with the new Country Home stamp set, which is just one of the wonderful new products in the Country Lane Suite. I just love the vintage feel of this stamp set and the images are perfect for coloring with Stampin' Blends Markers.
For this card design, I chose Mint Macaron cardstock for the card base and added a layer of Blackberry Bliss cardstock that I embossed using the Tin Tile Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder. To create a vintage, distressed feeling to the card, I added Copper Shimmer Paint to the raised areas of the Blackberry Bliss cardstock with a sponge dauber to bring out the embossed detail.
Using a strip of Mint Macaron cardstock, I embossed it with the Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and added the Copper Shimmer Paint to the raised edges for a distressed look. For added texture, I added 2 pieces of 3/16" Braided Linen Trim and attached it to the card front.
The focal image has been created from a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock die cut with the Stitched Seasons Framelits. I stamped the floral image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the image with Stampin' Blend Markers.
The milk can was stamped onto a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with the Stampin' Blend Markers and then fussy cut with Paper Snips. Using Very Vanilla Solid Bakers Twine, I wrapped the twine around the top of the milk can twice and tied a basic knot. I then attached the milk can to the die cut, lining it up with the floral image, using Stampin' Dimensionals.
I had so much fun creating this card design with the products from the new 2018 Holiday Catalog. The Country Lane Suite has a wonderful array of products to create beautiful Fall themed projects and I can't wait to explore new possibilities with them.
