Stampin’ Up! Countryside Corners “Love You” Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

It’s Thursday and that means it is time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I’m looking forward to seeing the projects that my team members have created for the Hop this week! If you are hopping over from Terry Lynn’s blog…welcome!

I used the Country Corners Bundle and the beautiful Countryside Inn 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper to create my card for the Hop today! I also used components from the Timeless Arrangements Bundle. These are all upcoming products from the new 2023-2024 Annual Catalog which goes live for customer orders beginning on May 2. Do you love shades of blue? If so, you’ll love this collection!

We have a sketch challenge for today…here it is.

I will be very honest. I knew I wanted to create this week’s Hop card using the Countryside Corners Bundle and the Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper but I had a really difficult time selecting the paper I wanted to use! The pieces of paper in this pack are all so beautiful and charming! I ended up selecting a print with small bunnies on the background and a Night of Navy print with a subtle flower background.

I adhered the bunny print paper from the Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper to a card base in Night of Navy. I then adhered a 2″ wide strip of a Night of Navy print from the Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper down the center of the card front. This strip measures the full length of the card at 5-1/2″.

The Country Corners Stamp Set consists of one large octagonal shaped stamp. Using my largest stamp block, Block F, I stamped the image onto a piece of Basic White cardstock using Boho Blue ink. Using the 2nd to largest octagonal die from the Countryside Corners Dies, I cut out the stamped image. The octagonal shape was then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and was centered from top to bottom and left to right.

Also from the Countryside Corners Dies set, I cut out the largest sentiment label from Basic White Cardstock and the smallest octagon from Night of Navy cardstock. These serve as the sentiment label and mat. I selected the “You’re my everything” from the Timeless Arrangements Stamp Set and stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink.

The Timeless Arrangements Dies set contains some fantastic dies – including flower sprays that are creatively engineered with a bar that can be glued to the back of one of the three sentiment label dies included in the set! Here are the two dies I used to drop behind my sentiment label. The larger die was used to cut a flower spray in Misty Moonlight cardstock and the single flower spray was die cut from Boho Blue cardstock. I then adhered the die cut pieces to the back of my sentiment label.

I applied a small bit of Stampin’ Seal onto the octagon on my card front – about two-thirds of the way down and slightly left of center. I then used a length of Balmy Blue & White Variegated Ribbon, folded the ribbon in half then adhered it to the Stampin’ Seal. The sentiment label was adhered over the ribbon and flush with the left card edge using a combination of liquid glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside panel, I stamped the sentiment “Just can’t…enough” in Boho Blue ink, then stamped “Love You” in between the first stamped sentiment. The “Love You” was stamped in Night of Navy ink. I used the small flower cluster image to stamp several flowers on the lower corner of the panel. The inside panel was adhered to a mat in Boho Blue then adhered to the inside of the card.

A piece of Night of Navy floral print paper was adhered to the envelope flap and I trimmed the excess paper away from the flap to finish off the envelope.

I hope you enjoyed my card for today. I really had a GREAT time creating it for you! What a lovely bundle and paper! Thanks so much for stopping by!
