Home Sweet Home

December 18, 2008

Sandy from Crafty Secrets is releasing a new stamp set today called Home Sweet Home. Check out the Heartwarming Vintage Blog for more details and some great give-a-way news. She will also be posting some of the projects the design team have made using this stamp set.

Here are a few cards I made using this sweet new stamp set.

The first one is called Home Sweet Home. Image was stamped on white cs with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored with copic markers. Cut the image with a scissor and mounted it onto cream and blue scalloped circles. Placed a strip of cream and blue cs below this, then a retangular piece of the same cs, then onto the background DP from the Classic Paper Design collection of Crafty Secrets. Added pearls to the corners of the card which were colored in blue using a copic marker.
The second card is 'The road to a frinds' house is never too long". The image was again stamped on white cs with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored with copic markers. Added some glitter on the pond with a Sakura glitter pen. Cut the image with scissors and them mounted it on to a square scalloped blue cs that was outlined with a metallic blue sakura pen. Background DP is from The Pastel Paper Desings collection of Crafty Secrets. Used a MS scalloped border punch on the pink DP. Sentiment was stamp on the pink DP and added some Prima flowers, punch ferns and half pearl to the 2 ends of the sentiment. Card based was outline with a blue metallic pen and then dotted all around.

The third card is an ATC. Image was stamped onto white cs and colored with copic markers. Just love these markers. Coloring comes out so even. Cut out a blue cs to the size of an ATC card and distress it with Faded Jeans and Walnut stain distress ink. I also sponged some metellic blue ink on the background to give is some shine. Stamped the sentiment to the bottom on the ATC. Stamped the key image with Sky Blue Pearlescent Brilliance ink and Faded Jeans and cut it out with scissors and a scalpel. This was mounted on top of the ATC with double sided foam tape. Added 3 half pearls to the right of the image which I colored with a blue copic marker.

Hope you all are excited for the coming Holidays. I wish you all a Very Happy Christmas and Joyful New Years.
