COUNTRY HOME WITH TIN TILE EMBOSSING
If ever there was a match made in heaven (or I guess the Stampin’ Up! home office) it’s the Country Home with Tin Tile embossing. I guess that’s because you usually see the tin tile as a feature in older country farmhouses, used in ceilings. It really is a gorgeous feature. Whether you use the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impression Embossing Folder (DTIEF) with cardstock or foil paper, you’ll love the look.
It’s also Thanksgiving Day here in Canada! I think the rustic look of this card fits the occasion. So if you’re here in Canada – Happy Thanksgiving to you! I hope you enjoy the day, however you may celebrate. We had our big ‘turkey day’ yesterday with family. Today we’re all recuperating from the turkey-induced stupor LOL!
I’m still colouring with my Stampin’ Watercolour Pencils and Blender Pen. I love the look it creates. Next I’ll be moving on to using my Stampin’ Blends Markers. So no, you haven’t seen the last of my sharing this Country Home stamp set yet!
My other new favourite, besides this stamp set and embossing folder, is the new Gorgeous Grape colour in the Brights collection. I decided to use it in the cardstock, and pair it with silver highlights.
For a card base, use one of the new Foil-Edged Cards in Silver. They’re available in either Silver or Gold, and come with foil edged envelopes, as well! You’ll want to pick up at least 1 pack of each – that’s what I did! They easily step up the look of any card you create.
Use the Big Shot with the Tin Tile DTIEF and emboss a panel of Gorgeous Grape cardstock, and a strip of Silver Foil paper. Attach the foil strip to the embossed cardstock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, then attach the cardstock panel to the card base, with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On a panel of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the milk jug image in Versamark ink. Cover it with Silver Embossing powder, and set with Heat Tool. Colour in the can with the Gray Granite Watercolour Pencil (from the 2nd assortment, no longer available) and Blender Pen.
Stamp the floral arrangement in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Use either the Stamparatus, or ‘eyeball’ the lining up of the image stamp. Use Watercolour Pencils to colour the image. I used Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Old Olive, Garden Green and Early Espresso, along with a Blender Pen. Use the 1″ Circle Punch to remove each corner of the cardstock; this is to mimic the look of the Tin Tile.
On a smaller piece of white cardstock, stamp the sentiment from the Country Home stamp set in Gorgeous Grape ink. I used my retired Tags & Labels Framelits to die cut the sentiment and the larger Gorgeous Grape cardstock layer behind it. If you don’t have those, you can simply cut the 2 panels, then use the 1/2″ Circle Punch to punch the 4 corners of each panel.
Attach the focal image panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals over the base, then add the sentiment panels to the lower right corner, as in the picture above.
LOTS OF LAYERS
I admit – there’s a few layers to this card, but I think it’s worth the extra postage!
