Hello, Stampers!
     I'm sharing here one of the cards we will be making today when a few of us get together to stamp.  I love copper, I love Tin Tile and I love Country Home!  Let's get started.


Happy Stampin’!

SU! COUNTRY HOME, TWO FOR TUESDAY

COUNTRY HOME WITH TIN TILE

COUNTRY HOME WITH BUFFALO CHECK
Hello, Stampers!
     Thought I'd share the fruits of my play time this weekend with my new goodies from the Holiday Catalog.  With the exception of the "walls," there aren't many obvious differences between them.  My milk can is supposed to look like it's standing on the wood plank floor - does it?
     A couple of notes:  I colored the cattails with Copper Shimmer Paint and the cotton on the other card with Frost White Shimmer Paint, and on each added a little Wink of Stella here and there.  Let's get started.

Measurements (same for each card unless noted)
Thick White Card Stock base; score at 5-1/2 for vertical or 4-1/4 for horizontal card
Balmy Blue Card Stock base for Tin Tile card, 5-1/4 x 4 piece for inside
Whisper or Shimmery White scraps for milk can and flower arrangement (and for sentiment on Buffalo Check card)
4 x 5-1/4 Daffodil Delight Card Stock for mat on Buffalo Check card
4 x 5-1/4 Whisper White for Tin Tile card (3-7/8 x 5-1/8 for Buffalo Check card)
3-7/8 x 2 Wood Textures DSP of your choice (4 x 2 for Tin Tile card), plus a 1/4" or 1/2" strip for "baseboard"
Light wood pattern from Wood Textures DSP for sentiment on Tin Tile Card.

CAN"T WAIT TO TRY THIS DYNAMIC TIEF WITH THE COUNTRY LANE SUITE FOR FALL

Hello, Stampers!
     Where have you seen this pattern before?  Look up!  Is there a tin ceiling in one of your favorite restaurants?  I know of at least one here in Mooresville,  I love this Dynamic Embossing Folder, Tin Tile.  It is great with regular cardstock, foils and,especially with the tin-look Galvanized Metallic Paper on p.43 in the Holiday Catalog.  (I don't generally spray my cardstock first, as shown in the video above, and  it seems fine - try using an acetate shim instead.) 
    Here's a little $-saving tip for you:  Do you still have SU!'s Brushed Silver, Gold or Copper cardstock from years ago?  The Brushed Silver especially provides a very similar look to the new Galvanized Metallic Paper!  I'm looking forward to experimenting with it, the Country Home stamp set (perfect for Thanksgiving) and the Chicken Wire!  Stay tuned.
