Stampin’ Up! In The Country CAS Masculine

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. Hope your weekend is going well. Before I get going with my card, I just want to remind everyone that Sale-a-bration ends Tuesday, that’s just 2 more sleeps away. If you haven’t gotten everything that you wanted from Sale-a-bration now is a great time to get that order in. Also, I want to remind you that the 2021-2023 In-Colors will be retiring in April. Don’t wait to stock up on the Cardstock, Stampin’ Write Markers, Stampin’ Blends, Ribbons, Embellishments, etc. Stock up now and get some FREE items at the same time.

I have a super quick card for you today and it’s a masculine one. I don’t know about you, but I struggle with masculine cards all the time. I don’t have the need for many, and I avoid making them. This Sale-a-bration set, that will only be available until Tuesday February 28th makes a perfect masculine card. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! In The Country CAS 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! In The Country Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set along with the Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! In The Country CAS 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Neutrals DSP to a Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the country road image from the In The Country stamp set in Basic Gray Ink.

Using the largest die from the Fabulous Frames Dies, I cut a panel of Basic White and Basic Gray cardstock. I only needed the inner piece from the Basic Gray die cut. I adhered the stamped image to the Basic Gray mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the Basic White frame to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered panel to the inside of the frame using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on a panel of Basic White. I adhered a strip of the Neutrals DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Gray mat then to the inside of the Basic Gray card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the country road image from the In The Country stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Neutrals DSP to the envelope flap.

*********************************************************************************************************

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.

*********************************************************************************************************
