Feels Like Home – Project 1

Happy Stampin’ Monday!

I hope everyone had a relaxing and wonderful weekend! I had fun with all of you at the Virtual Party on Saturday and loved the DCMS session on Sunday too! If you don’t know, these two events happen on the LISS FB Group. DCMS (Drink Coffee, Make Stuff) happens every Sunday at 10am CDT.

This week’s stamp set is the Sale-A-Bration Feels Like Home set. (It is not available for purchase, but you can earn it as a FREE reward with any $50 purchase until September 30, 2021.) I have seen so many beautiful cards made with this set. Most of them have been expertly colored in with different types of mediums – pencils, markers, chalk, etc. However, today I wanted to create a black and white card and this beautiful porch looked so welcoming.

Instructions

Begin by folding and burnishing your card base with a Bone Folder.

Adhere Designer Series Paper layer onto the front of the card base.

Emboss the larger Basic White layer with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder and adhere it to the card base on top of the DSP.

Today I used my Stamparatus to stamp my image. Such detailed stamps sometimes have a hard time stamping completely the first go, so I always use my Stamparatus for them. If you would like to see how to use the Stamparatus CLICK HERE.

Stamp the image in Momento Tuxedo Black ink.

Now, adhere the stamped image onto the Basic Black mat.

Then, adhere it to the card base.

Stamp the sentiment on the small piece of Basic White cardstock using Tuxedo Black ink.

Adhere the sentiment onto the small black mat and adhere to the card front on the upper right side.

To finish off the card, stamp the potted plant image on the inside panel and adhere to the inside of the card.

You can always add rhinestones or pearls to bling it up a bit, but today I wanted to stay simple and I am happier for it. What do you think?
