Country Floral Lane Samples

Country Floral Lane Sample

Can you believe it’s time to think about creating your handmade cards for Valentine’s Day? It’s less than a month away! In today’s post, I share a sample of Valentine cards made with Stampin’ Up!’s Country Floral Lane Suite of products. Find this suite beginning on page 8 of Stampin’ Up!’s January-April 2023 Mini Catalog

The suite includes: 

  • Country Bouquet Stamp Set
  • The Country Bouquet Punch (purchase these first two as a bundle and save 10 percent)
  • Country Gingham 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper
  • Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins
  • Country Floral Lane 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper
  • Real Red & Burlap Ribbon

In the handmade greeting card at the top, I also use the heart frame from the Framed Florets Dies. It works perfectly here for Valentine cards. I also love that the Country Bouquet Punch coordinates with the Country Floral Lane Designer Series Paper. You can punch the images directly from the paper in addition to punching the stamped images.

The next card uses the two-step feature of the Country Bouquet Stamp Set. I stamped with both Sweet Sorbet and Mint Macaron (using the Stamparatus) and then punched the image with the Heart Punch Pack. Look at those Heart Pearls! I colored them with the Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends and added them to the card. Be sure to watch the video at the end of this post to see how these cards are made.

This final card uses strips of Designer Series Paper (each measuring 1 x 3) from both the Country Gingham 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper and the Country Floral Lane 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper.

Who needs Valentine card ideas? It’s about a month away! Stampin’ Up!’s Heartfelt Bundle offers a perfect combination of a stamp set and two punches to get the job done. Add a package of the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper and you’re good to go. I love that the DSP has a couple of sheets of heart images that can be punched directly from the paper. This card features one of the hearts, and I layered it on a scallop heart punched through Silver Foil.

Purchase the Heartfelt Bundle for $45.75 (that’s 10 percent discount for purchasing the stamp set and punches as a bundle) and add the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series paper for $14.50 and you qualify for one free item from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. Choose your favorite from among exclusive stamp sets, Designer Series Paper, a punch, framelits, shiny baker’s twine, a card kit, and more.
