Suite Showcase #10 - Countryside Inn


Hello again,

Thank you for stopping by, as I type this blog it is a lovely sunny day and summer seems to be really on it is way, so let’s just hope it’s nice and long as I am not a fan of a cold and wet winter.

For this blog we chose to use Stampin’ Up!’s Countryside Inn Suite and what I truly loved about this suite is that the stamps and dies are not your typical style of dies, these stamps and dies are border stamps and dies and each shape has its own design so it will add extra dimension to your projects.

I could not wait to get crafting with this suite, I even used this in my Stamp-a-Stack class as soon as I received my order with it in, the ladies loved it.

We made these three cards in class:

I loved cutting out an aperture with one of the Border dies and attached the Country Bouquet embossed card on the inside of the card, then I decorated the front using a variety of Petal Park stamped and punched out flowers with the greetings from Sentimental Park as the finishing touch along with some beautiful embellishments.


With this card I wanted to show off the embossed Boho Blue card and incorporate some more punched out flowers with some white and gold heat embossed flowers too for extra detail.


On this card, the Designer Series Paper (DSP) is rather busy so I didn’t want to hide its beauty, so I added a gold frame and then even more flowers.  As you can see I got carried away making so many different flowers, but the fact that there is a punch for these made them so easy to make.

Whilst crafting for this Suite Showcase, I made some extra projects.  I love stationery and for ages I have wanted to start making Travellers Notebooks again, these gorgeous papers allowed me to start making them again.


As you can see, I have embossed the inside vellum sheet so it matched the Boho Blue front cardstock, then used even more flowers to give that little extra.  I have decided to create two more Travellers Notebooks and at some point, create a new co-ordinating cover too. 

With the leftovers, it would be rude not to make a little 10cm x 10cm Thank You card  and a 10cm notebook as I really enjoy making these because they are fun to make.

I have you have enjoyed looking at what I made, I have listed the products used below for you to have a look at:
