Country Home Thankful & Grateful Cards

Hi Stamping Friends!

I spent the past three days hanging out with some amazing demonstrators at Ronda Wade's Creative Convention! 

Cc18 - too cool ronda 2

We had a group of 9 Too Cool Stampers attending the 80-person event, so our team was well-represented.  It was so much fun stamping and hanging out with these amazing ladies all weekend!  My team rocks!  I'll be sharing some photos from the event on my Too Cool Stamping VIP Facebook Group today!

For today's projects, I'm sharing a pair of cards from my Country Home Class-To-Go kit! 

But first, my local stampers will not want to miss this week's "Last Thursdays" class for a sneak peek BOGO PreSale at the class!

Country Home Thankful & Grateful Cards

I'm having lots of fun coloring the pretty harvest bouquets from the Country Home stamp set.  My Class-To-Go Kit gives you lots of opportunities to color with your favorite medium.  My favorite is using Stampin' Blends, so most of my sample class cards are colored with those markers.

Background Basics—I started with a Mint Macaron card base, then adhered a 5-1/4" x 1-3/4" panel of Country Lane Designer Series Paper along the top and a 5-1/4" x 1" strip along the bottom.

Sweet SentimentNext, I stamped a Country Lane sentiment in Early Espresso onto a 5-1/4" x 1-1/2" strip of Crumb Cake.  I stamped it close to the right edge, leaving plenty of room for the focal point.  I wrapped some Braided Linen Trim around the card front and tied it into a double knot.

Focal Point Coloring—I stamped the Country Home jug and cotton bouquet in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a 2-1/4" x 3-1/2" piece of Whisper White, then colored in the image with Stampin' Blends. I colored the jug with a combination of Smoky Slate and Crumb Cake.  The bouquet features Mint Macaron leaves, Daffodil Delight & Poppy Parade flowers and a little Crumb Cake on the cotton.  It's mounted onto a 2-3/8" x 3-5/8" piece of Mint Macaron, then popped up with Dimensionals.  I finished it with a couple of silver Metallic Pearls (which happen to be my September Thank You Gift for orders above $75 using the Host Code: JCZEWNUJ.

Two Cool—For the second card, I did a similar design in a different color combination.  The card base is Blackberry Bliss, then I added a 5-1/4" x 2-1/2" piece of striped Country Lane DSP on the top and a 5-1/4" x 1-1/2" piece of Rich Razzleberry Country Lane DSP along the bottom.

Sweet Sentiment—I selected a different Country Home sentiment, stamped in Blackberry Bliss onto a 5" x 1-1/4" piece of Crushed Curry.  I fishtailed the end with my super-sharp Paper Snips before adhering it to the card front with SNAIL adhesive.

Coloring—I changed the leaves to Old Olive and the flowers to Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blends on this focal point.  Otherwise, it's pretty much the same.  It's matted onto Blackberry Bliss and I added gold Metallic Pearls for the accents.
