#tgifc176 Color Challenge – Meet Country Home

Sep 7, 2018 | TGIF Challenges, Thank You | 11 comments

TGIF! It’s time to meet Country Home!
Welcome to another TGIF Challenge, this week it’s time for some amazing color!  Early Espresso, Coastal Cabana, and Pumpkin Pie make for a fabulous country color feel!  I immediately thought of the new Country Home Stamp Set from the 2018 Holiday Catalog when I saw the challenge!

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Using a Stamparatus and Early Espresso Ink, stamp the Buffalo Check Background Stamp onto Coastal Cabana cardstock.  Cut down to 4″ x 5 1/4″.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Trim the excess edges with a Paper Snips so they line up with the card base.
  3. With a Paper Snips, cut a Chicken Wire Element to 7 loops wide.
  4. Stamp the sentiment (from the Country Home Stamp Set) in Early Espresso onto Coastal Cabana Cardstock two times.  Snip the Thankful out, closely, with a Paper Snips. Adhere over the top of the 2nd stamped image with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Crop, slight offset, with a Big Shot and the large Stitched Oval Framelit Die.  Adhere to the Chicken Wire and card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  5. Stamp the Milk Can & Flowers in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White Thick Cardstock.  Color with the following Stampin’ Blends:  Soft Suede Combo, Bronze, Smoky Slate Combo, Pumpkin Pie Combo, Light Pool Party, Light Bermuda Bay.

If you haven’t noticed, I love to fussy cut…I would say it is my therapy.  So this card I decided to fussy cut the milk can and floral image, and also snipped the thankful from the sentiment!  I gave it a pop by adhering it with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I highly recommend the Stamparatus (stamp positioning tool)!  It helps ensure you get a perfectly stamped image by allowing you to stamp multiple times..  I stamped the Buffalo Check image three times to get the coverage I needed.

Country Home is a photopolymer stamp set that is part of the Country Lane Suite of products from the 2018 Holiday Catalog.  Pairing it with the Buffalo Check Background Stamp is a match made in heaven!  I am a country girl at heart and also #madforplaid so both of these stamps sets speak to me in so many levels.

    Stesha, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this card! Love everything about it, the layout the colors! I bought this set and enjoy it myself, but haven’t been super excited about many of the samples I have been seeing, but your card today just made my whole purchase worth it!

    Okay ….why did I not think of using The Stamparatus with this big boy stamp ?
    I love this background stamp, .but have not gotten it because of the problem of good coverage on an image this size ! Love the color and this is the prettiest card I have seen using this country set !!
    Wowzer !!
