Stampin’ Up! In The Country Sneak Peek

Good Morning! The upcoming January-April 2023 Mini Catalog will be available on January 5, 2023. On the same date, Sale-A-Bration 2023 will be open. I have sneak peek of two stamp sets from the upcoming Sale-A-Bration brochure that I used on today’s card. They are the Stampin’ Up! In The Country cling stamp set and the Sending Support cling stamp set. You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I used a watercolor technique today with water painters and ink pads on Shimmery White card stock to color the pretty country path in the Stampin’ Up! In The Country stamp set. I stamped the image using Black Stazon Ink on Shimmery White card stock. I colored the sky Balmy Blue and the fields in light Garden Green and dark Mint Macaron. The Trees are done in dark Mossy Meadow and dark Garden Green and the path in Crumb Cake. I used dark Soft Suede on the fence. I am not a painter, so don’t be too critical. I kept my water painter just moist enough to spread the color and quickly dry and I like the way it came out!

I cut a panel of Design A Daydream designer series paper with the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to the front of a Crumb Cake card base. I adhered a strip of natural ribbon to the card with Stampin’ Seal on top of the DSP. I cut the country path with the 5th largest Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to a Soft Suede mat with liquid glue. I adhered the layered panel to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the upcoming Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Sending Support, in Black Stazon ink on Shimmery White. I used a water painter to apply a Crumb Cake wash over the sentiment and cut it out with the small Stitched Rectangle die. I adhered it to the card front with glue dots and dimensionals and finished it with a champagne flower trinket.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Sending Support stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink in the lower corner of a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Design a Daydream DSP to the side of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

This little scene reminds me of a hillside farm close to my house with a post and rail fence along the road. I imagine that 100 years ago, the paved road looked like this. I love the way the country path curves so you can’t see around the bend and the little courage sentiment was fitting for this scene. Here are the two Sale-A-Bration stamp sets with today’s card.

Here is the Stampin’ Up! In The Country stamp set. It has two pretty scenic images that are perfect for experimenting with different coloring techniques.

Here is the Sending Support stamp set. It has lots of uplifting sentiments for expressing encouragement and support for friends and loved ones.

Both of these pretty stamp sets will be available on January 5, 2023 as part of the Sale-A-Bration promotion. They will both be FREE with a $50 order before shipping and taxes. They are just a few new items to look forward to after the holidays!
