October Simple Stamping Challenge Using Country Home Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. Last week on my blog I featured a quick and easy handmade card using the Country Home Stamp Set (click HERE in case you missed it). It was my submission for the monthly Paper Crafting Blog Hop I participate in with several other Stampin' Up! demonstrators. It is a fun group of demonstrators from the US and other countries and we have a great time showing you (and each other) our ideas, tips and tricks.

Today I thought it might be fun to try a Simple Stamping Challenge by Stamping Up a/k/a #simplestamping. The October challenge is to create a card using stamps, ink, paper, and punches. The theme is "Thank You."
Challenge, Country Home, Punches, #simplestamping
My card features the beautiful floral arrangement on the "inside" of a Whisper White Note Card and I used the 2" circle punch on the front panel to create negative space, i.e. the peek-a-boo effect (hum, really hard to see in this photo though, my apologies). I finished the opening with a frame of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock double-punched with the 2-1/4" and 2" circle punches. Color is added to the floral arrangement with a Blender Pen and several ink pads (see the supplies list below). An alternative would have been to use the Stampin' Write Markers or the Stampin' Blends, however, I was unsure if Markers or Blends would be considered "ink" under the rules of the challenge.

This photo is the original design. It is exactly the same as the card above except it eliminates the Cherry Cobbler Cardstock frame around the peek-a-boo effect and the edges are sponged with Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I hope you have enjoyed my #simplestamping card featuring the Country Home Stamp Set. I know that I have enjoyed sharing it with you. 

Stamp On!!

Hope you were able to subscribe in time for the October Paper Pumpkin kit. It is truly beautiful. Be sure to Like and Follow my Facebook page for discussions with other Paper Pumpkin subscribers. Not a subscriber already? No problem. Contact me and let's get you signed up by November 10 in time for the next kit so that you do not miss out any more! November's kit coordinates with the October kit, but October's kit is not a prerequisite for ordering the November Kit. These kits are going to help us create some fantastic holiday projects.


#1 - Check for new products added to the Clearance Rack. You are not going to believe that The Everything Is Rosy Product Medley is still on the Clearance Rack, available for purchase at 15% off (while supplies last). If you need more information on Stampin' Up!'s product medley, message me for the flyer showing everything that is included. PLUS, those adorable True Gentlemen Buttons from the Spring catalog last year. I most sincerely, highly recommend that you do not delay in placing your order. 

(Sept. 4, 2019 - January 2, 2020)

If you placed an order from me over the past year, you likely have already received a copy of the new 2019 Holiday Catalog in the mail. If you did not receive one, please contact me immediately and let's fix that. If you do not already have a demonstrator, it would be my pleasure to be your enabler (er, I mean demonstrator) and send to you a copy of your very own. Chock full of inspiration and ideas. Did you know that there are 25 products under $25 in this catalog? ...Stocking Stuffers at a price point that makes everyone happy! 

As always, if you have any questions, or need any assistance whatsoever, contact me in your favorite method of communication. :)
