Last weekend I held a workshop with my group of ladies and we created two projects – one using the Countryside Inn Suite and Lasting Joy and one using the Circle Sayings Bundle along with the DSP from the Bright & Beautiful Suite. We had a great afternoon crafting together.
The Countryside Inn Suite includes the beautiful Countryside Inn 12″x12″ Designer Series Paper in a range of ‘blues’ – Balmy Blue, Misty Moonlight, Boho Blue and Night of Navy; the Countryside Corners stamp; the coordinating Countryside Corners dies and the lovely Countryside Blossoms Embossing Folder. The stamp is a single stamp and when paired with the dies allows you to create six different border frames or combinations thereof. There are six nesting dies and one banner die in this set – a must to be added to your craft stash even if you don’t buy the stamp. The stamp and dies also come as a bundle which saves you 10%. Now onto our first project.
As mentioned above the Countryside Corners stamp is a single stamp. From the image below you can see it has six different sized border images which you can die cut with the corresponding sized die to give you six ‘frames’.
The image was stamped in Misty Moonlight then with the nested dies on top we ran it through the die cutting machine to get our six frames. Placing the largest and third largest die on our DSP we cut two frames – with the DSP being double sided flipping the inner frame gave us two designs from the one piece of DSP. After arranging the ‘frames’ on top of the DSP this was adhered to the Notecard. For the centre we die cut the smallest frame from Basic White and stamped our sentiment and image from Lasting Joy which coordinates nicely with this Suite. As we no longer have Basic Pearls we used the White Pearlized Enamel Effects for the flower centers.
This design can also be used for a full sized card by adding a mat. I ran a piece of Misty Moonlight cardstock through the embossing machine using the Countryside Blossoms Embossing Folder and adhered the ‘frames’ to the mat with dimensionals.
