Stampin’ Up! Heart and Home Suite Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today for our hop we have a sketch challenge, and the Heart and Home Suite was my choice to use for my design this week.  Between the stamps, DSP and all the embellishments, it was so fun to put this card together.  I can’t wait to try some other combinations of DSP and colors to make more cards for my stash.

The Sketch:

Stampin’ Up! Heart and Home Suite Card:

The Recipe:

Card base: Cinnamon Cider 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2

Mat: Heart and Home DSP 4 x 5-1/4

Embossed panel: Basic White die cut with the Stitched Rectangle Die and embossed with the Subtle EF

Mat: Misty Moonlight 2-3/4 x 4-1/8

The Details:

  • Stamp the smaller floral image from the Blessings of Home stamp set onto Basic White card stock with Black Tuxedo Memento Ink
  • With your Blending Brushes lightly swirl color in the center of each flower as follows:
  • Large flowers are colored with Pale Papaya and the small flowers and colored with Misty Moonlight
  • Color the centers of the flowers with the Cinnamon Cider Stampin Blends
  • Color in the leaves with you Old Olive Stampin Blends
  • The bee is colored with Pale Papaya and the Blending Brush and cinnamon cider is using the Stampin Blends
  • Add a bit a sparkle to the bee’s wings and center of the large flowers with you Wink of Stella
  • Die cut the flower and bee with the Flower of Home Die

The Sentiment:

  • Stamp your sentiment of choice onto Basic White card stock with Misty Moonlight Ink
  • Die cut the sentiment out with the Tasteful Labels Dies
  • The stamp set I used for the sentiment was from Timeless Tulip

Putting your card together:

  • Attache the Heart and Home DSP to the Cinnamon Cider card front with Stampin Seal
  • Attach the Misty Moonlight mat to the Basic White Embossed panel
  • Attach this to the front to of the card slightly to the left with Stampin Dimensionals
  • Adhere your Heart and Home Doiley to the matted art piece with Stampin Seal
  • Attach the floral spray on top of the doily with Stampin Dimensionals
  • Adhere your sentiment to the front of the card with a glue dot and Dimensional

Finishing Touches:

  • Make a bow from the Pale Payap Sheer Ribbon and attach it to the stems of the flowers with a glue dot
  • Attach the bee with a Dimensional
  • Add 3 White Classis Mat Dots from the Heart and Home Suite and you are done

    Kristi, I’ve been mussing you from Amy’s blog hops. I love your ideas. Glad you are back, hope everything is ok & you were just on vacation.

    • Kristi Gray says:

      Thank you Julee. We moved last July from Washington State to Kentucky. We were building a house and I had to stop blogging while my supplies were boxed up for the move from the rental to our new home in December. It took a while to get set up. But I am back now and so glad I am playing in my craft room again.
