Stampin’ Up!’s Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF used with the Galvanized Metallic Paper and the Big Shot gives my card it’s wow factor. I combined it with Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper and Gray Granite cardstock.
This also was one of the cards my club members made in October.
I used Stampin’ Up!’s Abstract Impressions stamp set to make this wreath with the Stamparatus. I used a template I made using the 3″ framelit from Layering Squares Framelits to create the template.
This card is easy to create, however, it isn’t quick! Book a party or privae class with me during November and I will teach you how to create wreath cards with the template and your Stamparatus.

Every time I use this stamp I think of John Denver—-;
Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads
Just saying the name Country Home reminds me of when I heard John Denver sings this song at the Augusta Civic Center a long time ago. Don’t ask!
Another classic Country Home card uses Stampin’ Up!’s Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions folder. Whew that is a mouthful! I just call it the Tin Tile folder. I embossed the Copper Foil sheet with folder and the Big Shot, then sponged the foil piece tile Tranquil Tide ink to give it a little weathered copper effect.
I used Stampin’ Blends to color the images and fussy cut the images. I also used the Corrugated Dynamic folder on the piece of Crumb Cake cardstock behind the copper piece.
I like how this card came together and hope you do, too.
We had a small turnout for October’s Maine Stampers Team Meeting, only 6! So I took suggestions on what they would like to do after the business part of the meeting. The unamious decision was making a holiday sampler with 3″ x 3″ squares. Some had missed last spring’s 3″ x 3″ swap where we all brought our squares, swapped, and made the sampler at the meeting. 9 team members participated. This time we each designed a square and made 6, one for each person attending. We swapped so we each had 6 different squares. They all took their squares home to finish their sampler project. I gave several ideas on how they could finish their sampler and and am excited to see their finished projects. Here is mine:
My original 3″ x 3″ square is the upper right square (deer). I added the middle square in top row and the middle row left rectangle to complete my sampler. Lots of different Christmas stamp sets.
