Home Sweet Home x 2


Not long ago, I made two New Home cards using patterned papers from Pink Paislee's Sweetness collection. My favorite is the one above, with those pink cabbage roses under the house. 

I used a favorite stamp set of mine on both cards, as well:  Boards & Beams by Papertrey Ink.  The images are great for coloring, but I also like them uncolored.  There's plenty of detail to keep them from looking bland.

Stamps: Boards & Beams - Papertrey Ink Paper: patterns - Sweetness - Pink Paislee; blue polka dots (clouds) - Stampin' Up! Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black - Tsukineko Fibers: natural twine - American Crafts Accessories & Tools: Cloud 1 & 2 dies - Papertrey Ink; paper button sticker - K & Co.

The next version uses a different colorway, also included in the Sweetness collection.  The ledger look to the yellow paper made a neat backdrop, but I added something subtle to it.  See the faint words, like an old-time advertisement, near the top right quadrant? That's a stamp from Pink Paislee's London Market / Vintage Impressions set.  I used Frayed Burlap Distress Ink for it, so that it is just ever-so-slightly noticeable.

I added a sweet little pink button, tied with pink ribbon, to give it that little extra something.

The clouds are from Inspired By Stamping's The Sky's The Limit, stamped in two shades of pink and trimmed closely.

Thank you SO much for coming by today!
