For today’s card I wanted to create a little scene with the houses in the Hearts Come Home stamp set. As these are quite small I decided to use the largest Stitched Circle Framelit to create a focus point.
I stamped the greeting “All Hearts Come…” in Smokey Slate. I then stamped one of the small houses in Smokey Slate and one in Real Red and then cut them out. I cut the roof off the Smokey Slate house and adhered it to the Real Red House. I then stamped two trees in Garden Green and cut them out too.
To create the snowy rifts I cut out another circle in Dazzling Diamonds and cut two curved sections to sit the house and trees on.
For the background of the card I cut a matt layer in Real Red measuring 10cm x 14cm and another layer measuring 9.5cm x 13.5cm from the snowfall paper out of the Christmas Around the World DSP.
To finish the card I added a strip of Real Red down the left side to attach the circle scene onto. I then added six silver dots from the Metallic Enamel Shapes pack. I really love how this card turned out.
For today’s card I wanted the lovely Santa and his sleigh stamp from the Hearts Come Home stamp set to be the focus of the card and what better way to make him the focus than to have him flying across the moon. Surely one of the most iconic images of Christmas Eve everywhere.
To create the card I cut a layer of Night of Navy to 10cm x 14cm and a matching layer of Window Sheet. I then put the two layers together and cut the circle out of the 6cm diameter circle from the Layering Circle Framelits.
I then fixed the window sheet layer temporarily to the front of the card with washi tape. I then took some Crumb Cake ink on a sponge and very lightly inked the bottom left edge of the circle. I then stamped the Santa in the middle of the circle with blank memento ink.
Next take the Night of Navy layer and stamp Joy to the World and some random small stars in Versamark. Heat emboss this with Silver Stampin Emboss Powder to finish the layer.
To complete the card line the Night of Navy layer over the top of the stamped images on the Whisper White card base. The Crumb Cake ink should look like a shadow at the bottom of the moon.
Inside I just stamped a quick greeting in Night of Navy. Join me tomorrow for another card using the Hearts Come Home stamp set.
This week I’m working with the Hearts Come Home bundle which was one of the sets on my first order from this years Autumn/ Winter catalogue. Who can resist those cute little house dies and the Santa in his sleigh with his reindeers is a winner for me. For today’s card I focused more on this dies in this set as I was desperate to have a play with them. Continue reading “Little Sparkly Homes Christmas Card”
