Wouldn’t this Country Home easel Post-It note holder be the perfect somethin’ somethin’ to brighten someone’s day? It’s so easy to create (and I’ll have a quick WOW! video for you tomorrow). I’m also giving you a sneak peek of the Country Home stamp set & Braided Linen Trim which will be available for purchase starting Sept. 5, when the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog begins.
If you plan to place your next Stampin’ Up! order through me and live in the U.S., you can request a FREE copy of the holiday catalog here. Customers who have ordered through me in the past year either have received or should be receiving a copy soon! It’s one of the benefits of being a Stampin’ Pretty Customer.
STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:
Start with a 3 1/2 x 11 piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock. Score with the Stampin’ Trimmer at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2.
Create the easel. As shown below, fold the scores “in” and adhere a 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock to the front, partial panel with Tear & Tape Adhesive. Adhere a Post-It pad to the longer portion that forms the base using Tear & Tape Adhesive (for extra hold).
Using the Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus for precise placement and crisp images (read more here about the Stamparatus), stamp the pitcher, floral group and “hello” sentiment from Country Home Photopolymer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
Color images with Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Smoky Slate light and dark Stampin’ Blends markers. TIP: I used the Color Lifter to soften the coloring and add a rustic, weathered look. Here’s my WOW! video with simple tips on coloring with Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Blends alcohol based markers.
Crop the image using the largest of the Layering Ovals Dies, the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and Magnetic Platform (for keeping the image in place).
Adhere a 3 x 4 1/4 piece of Whisper White card stock to a 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 piece of Old Olive card stock. Wrap with Braided Linen Trim around the layers and tie in a bow. Adhere the oval from above with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere ALL with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the front of the easel. TIP: It’s easiest to adhere if you lay the easel down flat.
For a little glossy pizzazz, add a tiny drop of glue from the Stampin’ Up! Fine-Tip Glue Pen to each of the berries. Allow to dry.
