Home Sweet Home

Morning all!

It's my (Clare) turn today where I'll be sharing a card tutorial using Sarah's Doodle Home stamp set and the negative part of a metal die.

Here's the finished card....

And here's how it was created.....

1 -  Cut a piece of gingham designer paper 5mm shorter than your card blank. I used a 15cm x 15cm         square blank card so I cut the paper to 14.5 x 14.5cm.

     Sarah has some FREE dotty paper in her shop  as an alternative. Stick in place using double              sided tape or the glue of your choice.

2 - Cut a piece of white card 11cm x 9cm.

3 - Draw a line where the top of your scallop border will be. You will use this as a guide when                  stamping.

4 - I was uncertain where I wanted my houses and trees so I stamped some using brown ink, then cut        them out. I could then move them around until I was happy with the layout. Once satisfied I                stamped two houses and one tree directly onto the white card stock. 

5 - Place some metal die clouds onto the top of the white card stock remembering to go partly off the      card.

6 - You can now stick this down on top of the gingham paper.

7 - Die cut a scallop border, I used a Tim Holtz one.

8 - Using one of the cut out trees, add some foam pads on the back and place beside the stamped tree      and house. This gives your card a little depth.

9 - Stamp the home sweet home sentiment using black ink. Add some foam pads and stick down at          the bottom right of the card.

 Here's a little close up....

 Here's a picture of the card from a different angle....

Let's go shopping in Sarah's Shop.

I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial today and thanks for stopping by
