Stampin' Up! Country Home card samples from the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday CatalogThe Stampin’ Up! Country Home card samples shown on page 42 of the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog are quite appealing. So much so I wanted to make the one with the pitcher. Make it but make it much easier.

My easier version eliminated two challenges. The first is you won’t need to hand trim around the delicate details of the flowers. That will save you a lot of time. The second is the flowers in the sample go over the top edge of the card and will probably get bent. It would be a shame after the time it took to cut them out.  

Stampin' Up! Country Home card designed by Shelly Godby with Stampin' Up! Country Home Stamp Set

My Country Home card remake was easy to make and still looks fabulous.

Stampin' Up! Country Home card designed by Shelly Godby with Stampin' Up! Country Home Stamp Set

The vibrant color and shading are all courtesy of Stampin’ Blends Markers. I was talking with one of my sweet stampers this week and we were both gushing over how much we love our Stampin’ Blends Markers, alcohol markers in exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors. They simply make us all look like we’re highly skilled. 

There’s one more thing I want to point out about my Country Home card and that’s just how cool the Everyday Label Punch is. The look was altered a bit for the greeting layer. The round part was trimmed off. This will make it especially good for masculine greeting cards. AND, it was used to make the corners for the Whisper White Cardstock layer. This punch just gets better and better.

I hoped Stampin’ Up! would offer a way to store our Stampin’ Blends that would make it easy to see the colors and grab the colors you want. I haven’t given up on that happening, but until then check out this inexpensive Stampin’ Blends storage solution one of my sweet downline found on Amazon.

Stampin' Up! Blends Storage Solution by Shelly Godby of www.stampingsmiles.com

The Crafter’s Companion has six trays with room for 12 Stampin’ Blends Markers per row. That’s enough room for all the Stampin’ Blends available to order in the 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! Catalog, 2018 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog and (hopefully) new colors available in the 2019 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog. 

And, when the six rows are filled because Stampin’ Up! makes me one happy cardmaker by offering Stampin’ Blends in more and more colors, we can add another set of six to this inexpensive Stampin’ Blends storage solution you can order HERE.

An inexpensive storage solution means we’ll all save money to spend on more Stampin’ Blends Markers! Order Stampin’ Blends in my online store www.shopwithshelly.com.
