The Artisan Design Team is back again to share projects using the Country Home Stamp set. This is a beautiful stamp set perfect for fall. I’m sharing two projects today
My first card uses Stampin’ Blends to color the stamped images from Country Home. This card also features the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions folder and Champagne Shimmer paint.
I’m really digging Shimmer paint. I find you can make a little go a long way when you dilute with rubbing alcohol. I added the diluted Champagne Shimmer paint directly to the embossed Pool Party card stock with a sponge dauber in a circular motion. The paper soaks up the paint quickly but also dries quickly.
I paired the pitcher image with the cattails flower arrangement image. After stamping and coloring I hand cut out using a hobby blade. I wanted to get a super close trim on this image and a hobby blade allowed me to get into the nooks and crannies of the leaves. I outlined the cut out image with a black Stampin’ Blend to finish off the look.
This next card features the cattails image colored with Stampin’ Blends. I stamped two the images back to back to create a floral swag and trimmed out. The greeting has been stamped in black ink and die cut using an oval from the Stitched Shape framelit dies. The outside edge of the oval and the perimeter of the card has been painted with Champagne Shimmer paint using a sponge dauber.
Have you had a chance to play with, or check out, the Take Your Pick tool? This multipurpose pickup and precision tool simplifies meticulous tasks. There is a tacky putty end to easily pick up sequins, paper accents, and other small objects; twist to dispense more putty. The other end has 2 changeable, double-ended tips with paper piercer, mini spatula, small stylus, and large stylus. I find the putty end indispensable and have been using it non stop to place small embellishments. It’s so easy to use! Refiles are available for the putty end. The tool retails for $10.00 USD. The two-pack refill retails for $3.50 USD. A list of additional project supplies can be found at the end of this post.
