Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. Did everyone have a nice Valentine’s Day? We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend already.

It’s time for an inspiration challenge from The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo #189a is Cozy Comfort and inspiration photo 189b is Vintage Hearts.  There are 2 photos this week and you get to pick which one inspires you. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

Stampin' Up! Country Bouquet 1

I used the Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet Bundle, the Country Floral Lane Designer Series Paper and the Vellum Layering Designs Paper for my Clean and Layered card today. I was inspired by the hearts and colors from inspiration photo 189b.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge 189.  How are you inspired by the photo, and which one inspires you more?

Stampin' Up! Country Bouquet 2

I started by stamping the large heart image from the Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sweet Sorbet Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the stamped image to a Vellum Layering Designs Paper card front using Stampin’ Seal. I cut a strip of Country Floral Lane DSP using the Marigold Moments Dies. I adhered the scalloped strip just under the artwork using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the Vellum Layering Designs card front to a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock using Stampin’ Seal under the artwork and along the top under the ribbon. I wrapped a piece of Burlap Ribbon from the Real Red & Burlap Ribbon Combo Pack, around the top of the panel and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Country Bouquet stamp set in Sweet Sorbet Ink to the right wide of the strip. I stamped the small heart image from the Country Bouquet stamp set in Sweet Sorbet Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the left side of the strip. I cut the small heart out using the Country Bouquet Punch. I cut the sentiment into a banner using the Banner Pick A Punch. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the small heart under the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I added a few Matte Black Dots to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Country Bouquet stamp set in Sweet Sorbet Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the heart image from the Country Bouquet stamp set in Sweet Sorbet Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sweet Sorbet mat then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the heart image from the Country Bouquet stamp set in Sweet Sorbet Ink on the envelope front twice. I adhered a panel of the Country Floral Lane DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!


If you need any stamping supplies, I’d love to be your Demonstrator. Just click HERE to go directly to my online store or drop me an email if you have any questions. 


Use this host code when placing an order with me. When you order $50 or greater you will receive a free gift from me! If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift is your choice of any 1 item valued up to $10.00 from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog or the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog!  Unfortunately, packs of cardstock are no longer an option for a free gift. Shipping has become too expensive to ship and it’s costing me as much to ship as the cardstock costs. For any orders $50 or more I will also send you my monthly class tutorials.  Click HERE or go to my Customer Rewards for more details and to see what this month’s tutorials are.

Please remember to use my current Host Code and make sure that you can see my name on the final checkout page listed as your Demonstrator when you order so that you know that you’re ordering with me, and you’ll get my rewards! 

Happy Stamping, Karen


In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.


Stampin’ Up! has some new items to pick from at the $50 level and $100 level during Sale-a-bration!  They are all items from the current catalog and they’re all available in addition to the Sale-a-bration exclusives from the Sale-a-bration 2023 Brochure!

Please note that you must use the item numbers included on the linked flyer in order to redeem these items as Sale-A-Bration items.


Coming on March 1, 2023, Stampin’ Up! is going to be having Online Exclusive Products and the first will be available starting March 1st. Click Here for a printable PDF flyer with the items that will be available. If you like what you see, there is a way you can get them NOW. If you join Stampin’ Up! before the end of February, you can either add the items to your starter kit, or you can pre-order them once you join. This is just one of the perks of being a demonstrator.

  1. I love everything about this beautiful card! The combination of the specialty vellum, the use of Sweet Sorbet against Crumb Cake, and the perfectly-tied ribbon makes this card so unique.
