Home Sweet Home Card

I spent the last week writing and sending my birth announcements and thank you cards to friends and family. My Aunt has recently moved house so with her thank you note I also wanted to post a New Home card too. I had a quick look on Pinterest and found a card very similar to the above. I used it as my inspiration to create a Stampin' Up! version.

For this I used scraps from my Brights Designer Series Paper Stack (Tempting Turquoise, Read Red, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry) and cut squares using my square punch. I cut some of the squares in half to make the roof triangles. I cut a Real Red scallop edging using the scallop punch and the grass was cut from Pear Pizzazz using my Edgelit Die (one of the best new products from the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalogue). I couldn't lay my hands on a New Home sentiment but I did come across a card I had been given when I moved into my house (5 years ago!) so I cut the sentiment from that to finish this card along with a length of string I found in my Mum's craft tote (I was looking for linen thread and came across this instead).

This is my first official bit of crafting since having Summer and I am pretty pleased with the result.  I am now busily prepping all my card kits for my card class on the 23rd June. If you'd like to book your spot i still have a couple of spaces, get in touch on 609249 or

Happy Crafting ;0)
