New Home Card, Townhouse Version

While I had my Hero Arts house on my workspace, I made a “townhouse” version of a new home card.

Recently, Offspring3 and I went to the Kennedy Center to see the musical, “Chicago”. (thank you MUCHO, Offspring3!) We took the Metro (I don’t like driving in DC). The walk from the Foggy Bottom Metro station to the Kennedy Center was lovely. This row of houses was my inspiration for the card. Sorry about the wonky angle of the photo, I didn’t stop and square myself up directly across the street.

 

Supplies: Stamps – Hero Arts, JustRite, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, inks – Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, Pacific Point, Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise, die – Spellbinders, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, metallic cord – PaperMart.

Way To Go Encouragement Card

way-to-go-tent-topper

“Tent Topper” cards were very popular…when? I can’t remember! Maybe 8 years ago? (I will have to go troll the Splitcoaststampers gallery to see if I can figure it out!)

I felt inspired to make one when the last scrap of pencil paper was only 3.75 inches square. My offspring would have LOVED this back in elementary school days.

Supplies: Stamp – Stampin’ Up!, paper – pencils – source unknown, Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream, Stampin’ Up! Basic Gray, Ruby Red (retired BLAST FROM THE PAST!), ink – VersaMark, dies – Spellbinders, embossing powder – Stampin’ Up! Sterling Silver.
