New Home stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

I have a new home card to share with you using the Flying Home stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

Flying Home from Stampin Up

When I saw this cute bird and babies in a nest I thought of ‘flying the nest’ so I felt it lends itself to a new home card.

I used the greetings from the Home Life stamp set which were perfect.

Here is how I made the card

  • Stamp the bird and nest onto whisper white in Black Memento Ink.
  • Colour the image with Stampin’ Blends (not shown in the photo below).
  • Punch out a circle using the 2″ circle punch and with the relief I framed the image but left some of the stamp overhanging the outside of the circle and drew a pencil line.
  • Cut around the over hanging parts of the image with scissors.
  • Position the image into the punch and made sure to have the overhang inside the base of the punch so it was not cut off.
  • Simply rub out the pencil line and mount onto a scallop circle from the layering circle framelits and a large smoky slate circle.

The cloud background was created with the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and Smoky Slate and Soft Sky Ink and a sponge.

The greeting from the Home Life stamp set was stamped on Basic Grey ink and I used my new stamparatus to position the greeting perfectly!  It is amazing, I cannot wait for you to get your hands on one!

Hearts Come Home from Stampin’ Up!

I think my favourite stamp set/bundle from the Autumn/Winter seasonal catalogue is the Hearts Come Home Bundle.  It screams Christmas but as it has houses I knew I wanted to be able to make a New Home Card.

New Home Card using Hearts Come Home

I stamped the little houses in a row and used a piece of washi tape as a guide to stamp my houses straight.  I stamped them in memento black ink and used my stamp-a-majig to get even spacing.

I heat embossed one of the houses and cut around it and raised it up with dimensionals to add focus to one house.

The greetings are from Home Life on page 148 of the annual catalogue.  I love it has a ‘on your new home greeting’ and ‘on starting a new home together’ and I decided to heat emboss the greeting.

Congratulations was stamped onto the banner and raised up with dimensionals.

I even went mad and stamped more houses inside….
