Happy Home

I was so happy to see another stamp set in the Occasions catalog that works with the Hearth & Home Framelits that premiered in the Holiday catalog!  These images are darling with the flying kite, tree and bench being highlighted throughout the “window” of the Framelits.  Today’s card is one that I used for my Go Diva’s swap last month!  It doesn’t use the Framelits, but I liked how it looked alone with just the Miss You greeting!


Happy Home

Here are the details:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Pool Party cardstock, folded in half.
  • Punch the bottom of the 2 x 4 Botanical Gardens Designer Paper with the Triple Banner Punch and adhere across the center of the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White.
  • Adhere a 3″ strip of Pool Party Glimmer Ribbon under the DSP and to the back of the right side of the Whisper White layer.  Adhere to the base card.
  • Stamp the bench image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Pool Party cardstock, punch with the 2-1/2 Circle Punch.
  • Use the AquaPainter and Mossy Meadow Marker to watercolor the “grass” area under the bench.
  • Use a Blender Pen and White Craft Ink Refill to color in the clouds.
  • Add the 2-1/2″ Circle to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Use the Blossom Bunch Punch with Hello Honey and Cajun Craze Cardstock to make the flowers.  Add to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  (GOOD TIMING!  This punch is on SALE for $13.50 US with the Weekly Specials until Feb. 15th!  Contact me to order it!)
  • Add Perfect White Accent to the center of the flowers.
  • Stamp Missing You from the Happy Home stamp set with Tuxedo Black Ink under the DSP.


That’s it!  Isn’t that a cool image?  I do love it!  Hope you do, too!
