New Home

Today's card is for friends of Jer's, who have just moved into their first home together.  I'm so happy for them!!  I believe they'll enjoy this whimsical card that I made using a fun digital stamp from Bugaboo.

This card is for two challenges:  Paper Players #109 (paper piecing), and SCS Featured Stamper (FS289) - mamamostamps).  I used this card by Maureen as my inspiration, keeping her layout and changing up the other elements.  Hope you like.

"Congrats on your New Home"

Stamps:  House (Bugaboo digital stamps); Sentiment Sampler (Paper Smooches)
Paper:  Whisper White, Real Red, Kiwi Kiss DP, Autumn Traditions DP (SU!); yellow gingham (Making Memories); heavy white cardstock (Neenah)
Ink:  Black (SU!)
Accessories & Tools: Maraschino Twine (The Twinery), glue

I copied the digital stamp into PowerPoint, resized and printed it onto a Whisper White card front.  I printed the image again onto computer paper and used that as my "master", adding cardstock over top and printing again in all the different colors.  I cut out and glued the pieces onto my card front.

I stamped the sentiment in Basic Black ink and added two pieces of twine wrapped around the top and tied in a knot off center.

For the inside of the card, I added a 1 1/4" strip of Real Red cardstock along the bottom, topped with 1 1/8" strip of the brown polka-dot dp (Autumn Traditions).

What a cute card and so perfect to celebrate a new home! That sweet, little house just pops on the clean background and the baker's twine is a fun touch. Thank you very much for playing along with my challenge this week at the Paper Players! :)
