Country Lane Suite Card #4

Let's keep it simple and bright. 
Sometimes a simple Hello is all we need. This card allows you to say whatever you want inside. No need for labels, just say hi!


This card is they type that someone would love to get in the mail and know that you are there for them. It makes them feel safe and makes any worry go away. 


When I first made this card I was all about he coloring that adding even the Hello was going to be too much. But wit this color scheme it just worked out so well.

Country Lane Suite Card #3

I love making unique fun cards. It's not easy. It's easier to make just your standard card so it can fit in a standard envelope and your more encourage to send it. Making a fun fold card and be challenging and sometimes you can't send them in the mail. 


This card is the same size as a standard card and can fit in an envelope to be sent with no problem. I love how this card came out. I wanted to make it more muted in color and not be so bright. This way I can show you how versatile this stamp set can be. 


This would be a great card to give to someone whom is hosting Thanksgiving dinner. Or to a guest that is coming to your table and that you are thankful in celebrating with them. 


Measurements: 
Card Base  8 1/2 x 5 1/2
score  2 1/8 and 6 3/8
Whisper White inside  5 1/4 x 4

Country Lane Suite Card #2

I am not a purple person what-so-ever!
I love pink and stick with pink in all I do. However since Stampin Up updated their colors and added a few purple colors I have been a little submissive. 


Blackberry Bliss is a beautiful color. It is a deep purple that I can get used to. 
(Gorgeous Grape had me last month)
This color is very fun to use with this stamp set. 


I wanted to make a different fold for this card. I cut my paper and scored it like any other card but ended up cutting off  1 3/4 from the front to be able to show off the beautiful Country Lane Designer Series Paper (147804).
I really love how this card came out. 


Measurements:
Card Base  8 1/2 x 5 1/2
score 4 1/4 - cut off 1 3/4
Designer Series Paper  1 7/8 x 5 1/2
Galvanized Metallic Paper  2 1/2 x 5 1/2
Largest stitched square
scrap for stamping  4 1/2 x 2 1/2

Country Lane Suite Card #1


I love this stamp set. I didn't think that I would. I first saw it in the catalog and thought "oh that's pretty", but the more I kept looking at it I knew I loved it. 


It is such a refreshing stamp set. It can be brightened up or toned down, it all depends on how you want to color it. And the Tin Tile Embossing Folder (147906) is beyond perfect. 


One trick I used on this card is I inked up the front of the embossing folder. The front is the side with the Stampin Up logo. (see picture)
This allowed for a darker tint to the paper and helped the embossed side really pop. The ink will wipe right off your embossed folder with no problems. 


Measurements: 
Card base  8 1/2 x 5 1/2 
score 4 1/4
Old Olive Card Stock   4 x 5 1/4
Thick Whisper White  4 x 3
Largest Stitched Oval - scrap for cutting out thankful sentiment
1/3 of Chicken Wire
