Stamp Review Crew: Country Home Edition

Hello and welcome to the latest Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop!   Our international crew highlights one Stampin' Up stamp set on each blog hop.  Hops are the first and third Mondays of the month and are a great way to get lots of ideas for using a set!   Click on the banner below to see a complete list of Crew members and see all the past hops which we keep active.  So many creative things to see and enjoy!

We have a beautiful stamp set to show off this session.  The Country Home stamp set is part of the lovely designer suite Country Lane.  Whether you have just the stamp set or the complete suite you will have a bundle of ideas once you click through the Crew's creations.

Growing up on farm, harvest was the highlight of year.  I still drive out of my way to find fields of ripe wheat and always am delighted when I see combines harvesting the crop.  I really enjoyed making this harvest themed set!

Blackberry Bliss is one of my all time favorite Stampin' Up colors and I am really enjoying that it is prominently featured in the Holiday catalog.   I love the rich color!   That fact that we now have a Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Blend makes me happy.   I have been using it for Halloween projects too!
I have a tutorial coming soon for making this wreath!
The Braided Linen Trim reminds me of stalks of wheat.
My past tutorial for making this mitered frame can be found HERE
TIP:  After coloring the milk can with Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends
 use the Color Lifter to distress a few areas .

  4. Betty, I always love 3D projects. I really like the framed tin type project. It is such a unique way of using that embossing folder. The clear vase with the belly band around it is also really cool! Beautifully done.
