Stampin’ Up! In The Country Birthday Card Sneak Peek With Video Tutorial

I used the Stampin’ Up! In The Country stamp set from the upcoming January-February 2023 Sale-a-bration Brochure to create a birthday card to share with you today.  I also did a video tutorial for this card and you can see it on YouTube here.

Stampin' Up! In The Country Birthday Card

My card design was inspired by The Paper Players PP619.

I started by adhering a panel of By The Bay 6″ x 6″ Specialty DSP (available Jan 5) to the front of a Sahara Sand card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then I used the Stamparatus to stamp the image from the In The Country stamp set ($50 level Sale-a-bration item available Jan 5) in Saddle Brown StazOn Ink on a panel of Fluid 1000 Watercolor Paper.  I cleaned the image and then restamped the image in Jet Black StazOn Ink.

Stampin' Up! In The Country Birthday Card

I colored the image with Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Early Espresso, Garden Green, Cajun Craze, Coastal Cabana and Basic Gray Watercolor Pencils from the Watercolor Pencils and Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2.  I used a Blender Pen to blend the coloring just a bit and then cut around the image with one of the Deckled Rectangle Dies.  I adhered the die cut to a panel of Sahara Sand card stock with Stampin’ Seal and then adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! In The Country Birthday Card

I stamped the sentiment from the Beautifully Happy photopolymer stamp set ($100 level Sale-a-bration item available Jan 5) on the card front in Early Espresso ink and then added two of the Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to finish the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Beautifully Happy stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a panel of Basic White card stock and then adhered a strip of By The Bay DSP to finish the inside of the card.
