Home sweet home
This colorful card is great to give someone who has moved to a new home. By combining stamps and cutting-dies you get this great creation. A sweet card of a sweet home.
Today, I’ve used these fabulous block stamps like a gel plate to give a graded look to the stamped image. Firstly, take three tones of Distress Oxide colours and tap them directly onto the long, thin rectangle stamp, spritz with water and then stamp it vertically and to the left of centre, onto a piece of white card measuring approximately 11x16cm. Do the same with one of the wider rectangular stamps and stamp this one horizontally along the bottom of the card and so it overlaps the first stamped block. As you can see, it gives a nice loose and watery, finish. Dry off your stamping with a heat tool.
Take the large foxglove stamp from the wildflowers set and stamp it in a deep pink Versa Clair ink at an angle as shown, then repeat with the smaller version of this flower in the stamp set.
Cut out the cottage in white card and ink through the die for definition, and also cut the fence in white card. Cut the mini trees and bushes from scraps of green card then play around with the pieces until you are happy with their position and fix in place.
Next, stamp the sentiment in black ink about half way down the piece of card. Now mat this onto a piece of pink card and fix to the card blank and finish off with an enamel dot or heart.
