Hearts Come Home

September 19, 2017

Hearts Come Home is one of the stamp sets in the Holiday Catalogue.  When I saw this stamp set, I had an idea of what I wanted to do with the Santa’s Sleigh image.  I often struggle to use the window die in the Hearth and Home Thinlits Dies because you can’t have a window without a view.  Do I make it a looking out or a looking in scene?  Anyway this image gave me the idea of looking out the window.  I started by embossing Sahara Sand card using the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.  I attached it to the bottom of Very Vanilla card.  I embossed a narrow strip of the same card through the same embossing folder and attached it across the top of the previous embossed panel.  I stamped the Santa’s sleigh image onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I punched a post-it-note using the 1-1/4″ circle punch and attached it over the image.  I sponged all over the Whisper White card using Pacific Point ink and then went over the outside of the image using Night of Navy ink.  I cut Crumb Cake card using the window frame from Hearth and Home Thinlits Dies and attached the stamped scene behind it.  The window frame is attached to the top left hand corner of the card front.  I cut the tree from Always Artichoke card using the Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits Dies and wrapped it with the Real Red Mini Tinsel Trim before attaching to the card front using dimensionals.  I punched Silver Glimmer Paper using the Owl Builder Punch (retired) and added the circles to the tree.  I also used the Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits Dies to cut the star from Gold Glimmer Paper which is attached to the top of the tree.

To decorate the inside of the card I stamped the greeting from the Watercolour Christmas stampset onto Very Vanilla card using Real Red ink.

Lots of product used to make this card but I think I pulled it off.  What do you think?

Bye for now,

    Gorgeous Kris, especially that it would suit our Christmas in OZ. I’ve just done something similar, but not the same, (if that makes sense) for our class today.
