Feels Like Home


Hi there and welcome. 

I have some House Warming cards to make this month and the Sale a-bration free stamp set “Feels Like Home” is a perfect set for what I wanted.  I think it is just a lovely stamp set.  I also used the Be Dazzling DSP.  It is so beautiful.  These products are only available until the 30th September 2021… so be quick!

The measurements and card that I am using are

Basic White 210mm x 148mm and score in half at 105mm

Expressions In Ink SDSP 142mm x 99mm

Be Dazzling DSP 110mm x 93mm

Basic White 90mm x 90mm & scape for the pot plant here that we cut out.

I am used memento ink to stamp the door image on the basic white.  I used my Stamparatus for the stamping.  I stamped the tulips at the same time in memento ink on the scrape piece of basic white.

As this is a House Warming card I just wanted the sentiment to say “Feels like home” and not “Your friendship feels like home to me”.  What I did was covered the words I didn’t want with some washi tape.  You can cut up your stamps if you wish, it would make is easier if you were doing lots of cards the same.  But if you are like me I get nervous about cutting the stamp up then feel free to do what I do and cover the words…. You do have to remember to take the tape off before stamping.  I have stamped on a clear sheet and then I can position where exactly I want the sentiment on the card in the Stamparatus.

To colour the picture I am used my Stampin’ blends to colour. 

The Blends I am using are:


Just Jade

Granny Apple Green

Pumpkin Pie

Smoky Slate

Shade Spruce

Mint Macaron

Polished Pink

Cinnamon Cider

Crumb Cake


Color Lifter

There are a lot of colours that I am using but feel to keep it simple and use what you have.  I will be using the Just Jade and Granny Apple Green for all the foliage but you could use the one green instead.  I am also using Polished Pink and Daffodil for the flowers and again you could do all the flowers in the same colour and match in with the door.  Main idea is to have fun and follow the stamped image. 

Once I had completed the colouring I wanted to add some interest to the boards, so I used the colour lifter to lift the colour just to add a subtle bit of interest.

Cut out the tulip pot and place a mini dimensional on the back.

With that all done all that is left is to put the card together.  I used my liquid glue and glued the DSP down to the Basic White card.  With the Be Dazzling DSP I am going to use my paper trimmer to cut out the middle as this will not be seen and we don’t want to waste this gorgeous paper.  I am going to allow a boarder of 15mm.  I find the paper trimmer the easiest to use to do this.  You can use your snips. 

Now I can use the middle piece I have cut out for another project.

Glue the Be Dazzling down using liquid glue on an angle.

Place Dimensionals on the back of the basic white card and place straight and in the middle of the card.  The place the potted tulip in front of the pots on the left hand side.

That is the card done. 

Here is the pink one

And here is the green one I have done.

Which one do you like?
