CASE the Catalog – Country Lane Suite

Happy Monday and time for CASE the Catalog featuring the Country Lane Suite from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog (page 42-43).  The suite of products offers lots of options using the Country Home Photopolymer stamp set, the Country Lane Designer Series Paper (DSP), the Tin Tile Dynamic Texture Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF), as well as, the different embellishments.  The project that I recreated uses the Chicken Wire Elements and the Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF to add an extra touch to the card.  There are so many wonderful suites in the Holiday Catalog, it’s hard to select which is my favorite but this suite is one that will definitely get lots of use! 

CASE the Catalog - Country Lane Suite

Materials:
  • Mint Macaron card base: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ (score at 4-1/4″)
  • Country Lane DSP: 4-1/2″ x 2-1/4″
  • Whisper White:  3″ x 4-1/4″ for front, 5-1/4″ x 4″ for interior, small scrap for stamping Hello
  • Chicken Wire Elements: 4-1/2″ x 2″  – NOTE: cut in 1/2 before attaching to card front
  • Ink: Memento Black, Crumb Cake
  • Stampin’ Blends: Cajun Craze, Blackberry Bliss, Smoky Slate, Old Olive, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake
  • Everyday Label Punch (to cut notches on edges of the Whisper White front piece)
CASE the Catalog Steps:
  1. Use the Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF to texture emboss the card front and then using Sponge Dauber lightly sponge the front using Crumb Cake ink.
  2. Stamp the milk can image and the floral spray onto the Whisper White card front using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink – NOTE: stamp off center toward right as shown on sample.
  3. Color the image using the blends.  Swish Crumb Cake below the milk can. You may spritz color below the milk can or add dots  (as I did) using the tip end of the Soft Suede Stampin’ Blend.  Stamp sentiment and color with Cajun Craze stampin’ blend, then fussy cut to add to front of milk can.
  4. Assemble card by layering the Country Lane DSP and adding the Chicken Wire Element pieces at an angle ensuring that pieces will extend past the stamped image layer.
  5. Add the stamped image layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Yummy Holiday Products

Yes, so many yummy holiday products from the new catalog.  Have you had time to look through your catalog?  I am so excited to share a few quick videos from Stampin’ Up! that also give you an up close look at three bundles.  Just another great feature from Stampin’ Up!

The Merry Christmas to All bundle is definitely a favorite.  Just watch how quickly this little tag (or card front) comes together and think about how fast you can create a bunch. 


Take a look at the beauful tag created with the Peaceful Noel Bundle.

 

The Falling for Leaves bundle makes me want to get out that warm winter quilt and sip some hot chocolate next to the fire while working. 

 All these bundles, along with many others from the Holiday Catalog are available in my online store here. If you are still in need of a catalog, contact me and we can get one sent out to you.
