Country Home - Thanks Card using In Colours - Video Tutorial

I think these cards are so pretty and I really enjoyed creating them. You can find a Video below showing you how I made them :o)

I used the Country Home stamp set which is a really lovely set for Autumnal cards. As I don't know yet if this one will be carrying over into our new catalogue in June I thought I had better get on and have a play with it - which I have been doing all this last week!

I used some of our retired papers for this first card. I wanted to keep it bright and use some of our soon to be retiring In Colours. The orange paper is Grapefruit Grove and comes from the Gingham Gala pack and the blue is Blueberry Bushel and comes from our previous designs 2018 - 2020 In Colour pack.

The images were coloured using the Stampin' Blends Alcohol markers. I used Lovely Lipstick, Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch. We don't have Grapefruit Grove or Blueberry Bushel in the Blends, so I used Pumpkin Pie, Dark Balmy Blue and Light Night of Navy instead.

This is the card I created in the Video. I used our more recent 2019 - 2021 In Colours for this one. We don't have Terracotta Tile Blends, so I used Cajun Craze instead.

The papers come from the Woven Threads 12" paper pack.

The bottom of the larger paper mat was cut using the edge die from the Magnolia Memories set.

Here is the Video ...
