StampinByHannah Thoughtful Thursday New Home Card using Home Life from Stampin’ Up!
Over recent weeks I have had heaps of reasons to send cards to my friends and family, including my younger brother moving house last week. I have a few of this type of card to make over the next few weeks as my brother in law is also due to move very soon too. So, in preparation for them moving, and our house move (yes, it’s still ongoing!) I grabbed the Home Life Stamp Set.
This stamp set is a little awkward, in that it is one of those multi-layer stamp sets. However, Stampin’ Up! have made a handy video to help us… I am really looking forward to receiving my Stamparatus this week to play with this stamp set again!
Now… I post every single card I ever make on this blog. (I do have a stack that I haven’t got to yet, but I always aim to have a supply in back stock, just in case I can’t craft for a few weeks!) and so I wanted to share both the card that I am sending my brother…. and the one that I almost sent! So, I also, almost posted this first card, until I was writing this blog post…
and I watched the video from Stampin’ Up! I really liked this card, but it there was just something not right about it… and I realised that I could use of the mountain of Designer Series Paper that I have accumulated this year….
So this is the card that I have actually sent to my brother and his partner, Becca, and I used the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper (just like SU did!) to replace that busy stamped background! While I would have happily sent the first card, I am SO much happier with this one!
The Home Life stamp set and coordinating dies can be found in the Annual catalogue, and are available as a cost saving bundle. Did you know that bundled products save you a fabulous 10% compared to buying the items separately? Awesome!
Of course I did also add a strip of Designer Series paper into the inside of the card too! I hope that they love it as much as I do…. I am hoping for a nice Wedding Stationary order from the happy couple soon….
