HOME TO ROOST
I decided to use the FREE Sale-A-Bration Stampin’ Up! Home to Roost stamp set on my card in a little different way! This set was one of the first SAB sets to catch my eye, but I haven’t used it all that much…so many FUN sets to use! lol! And, again I’m using the black gingham check from Botanical Butterfly DSP…what will I do when SAB is over? I LOVE that print!
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Merry Merlot cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- On the 3-1/2 x 4-3/4 piece of Crumb Cake cardstock, the 1-3/4 x 3-1/2 piece of black gingham from Botanical Butterfly DSP was adhered to the bottom.
- The grass image from Home to Roost was stamped with Crumb Cake Ink on the background above the DSP. The greeting was stamped with Merry Merlot Ink.
- A piece of 1/8 Braided Linen Trim was tied around and knotted on the front, then the ends frayed and added to the base card.
- The upper left corner was rounded with a Corner Rounder Punch.
- The rooster from Home to Roost was stamped with Memento Black Ink and colored with the Cajun Craze, Poppy Parade, Night of Navy, Smoky Slate and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. It was cut with the Stitched Oval Shaped Framelits and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- A trio of black/gray Best Route Enamel Shapes were added in the background.
You can get this stamp set for FREE with a qualifying $50 order. I’ll be happy to place the order for you in the United States, or click here to go to my Online Store!
