Stampin’ Up! Wishing You Well on a Country Lane

Mornin’, y’all!  Welcome to the weekend!  I’ve got three more sleeps and then Amy and I will be road-tripping our way to Orlando for OnStage!  Whoo-hoo!

Until then – busy getting ready to be gone!  And enjoying Fall in the South!  It’s truly our best time!

My card for today is an easy-making card suitable to send to anyone who just needs a little note from a friend.  I used the wonderful Wishing You Well (really really hope this one carries over!) stamp set and a little Country Lane DSP.  Take a look-see:

This layout is from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

And the color scheme is from the TGIF Color Challenge.

I made the card front by adhering a piece of Country Lane DSP to a Cajun Craze mat with Liquid Glue for the card front.  Then I wrapped some Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with a couple of Glue Dots.

I trimmed a Chicken Wire Element down a smidge and adhered it with little teensy bits of Liquid Glue.

I stamped the pretty bouquet from Wishing You Well in Crumb Cake ink on a piece of Crumb Cake card stock.  I stamped the flowers image in stamped-off-once Merry Merlot.  And the ribbon in full-strength Merry Merlot.  Then I cut it with the largest oval in the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

I popped the image onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the Wishing You Well sentiment in Cajun Craze on a piece of Crumb Cake and cut it with the Classic Label Punch.  Then I added faux stitches in Merry Merlot with my Stampin’ Write Marker.  The sentiment is adhered with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional on the left side and Liquid Glue on the right.

To finish off, I stamped the ribbon again on a piece of scrap Crumb Cake and fussy cut it.  Then I popped it over the stamped ribbon image with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I brushed it with Clear Wink of Stella – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a stamped-off-once Crumb Cake bouquet to a Crumb Cake panel.  Then I added Merry Merlot faux stitches.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Merry Merlot mat (oops – that should have been Cajun Craze!!) and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a full-strength bouquet in Crumb Cake and Merry Merlot on the front…

…and I added more Country Lane DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wishing You Well has got to be one of my very favorite stamp sets in the Holiday Catalog!  I just think it’s gorgeous!  I hope you like!

Yep.  He’s a jelly-belly!!

Also – he has a very strong sense of fair-play.

Cat sleeps on sofa?!?

Dog sleeps on sofa.

Cat lays on Mom?

A sweet purring cat asleep on your lap and a sweet not-purring dog resting his chin on you arm while you watch a little screen on a chilly Fall evening.

It’s not awful!

    Love this card. Love this set. I don’t do Christmas cards this year since a friend moved and graced me with a 2 year supply of cards, so I am living this Country life set to the fullest! Thank you for keeping it fresh and different for me.

  2. Well, here’s my take on your card…when you retire from your government job, Stampin’ Up! should place you on their payroll! Love the lappers too!

      Gosh – if they would then I could just go ahead and retire now! Thanks, Karen – that’s very sweet of you to say! 🙂

  3. Love the fall colors on your card! Perfect way to use that pretty stamp set. 🙂 That’s a pile of fur keeping you warm!! Felt like I needed that last night, it got COLD all of the sudden!

      Yes – it was a bit nippy this morning! Brrr! Thanks, Amy! 🙂

    Beautiful card, Mary. I think this may be one of my all time favorite stamp sets, especially that bow!
    This is the best time of year to snuggle with our furry best friends!
    Safe travels to you and Amy.

      Thanks very much, Pat – yes. That bow. That bow is simply the best! Appreciate the well wishes for a safe trip! 🙂
