I never seem to have a new home card when I need one.
When I was flipping through paper pads, I grabbed this sheet to pair up with an embossed sentiment I found in my scrap folder.
Supplies: Stamps – JustRite, paper – Crate Paper Good Vibes, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Island Indigo, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, die – Lawn Fawn, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.
Someone close to me moved to a new apartment a few weeks ago. This is what I came up with to congratulate/commemorate the event
Supplies: Paper – Canson watercolor, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Ruby Red (maybe? whatever it is, it is retired!)), Sahara Sand, Smoky Slate, dies – Hero Arts (buildings), Memory Box (clouds), watercolor – don’t remember!, DYMO label maker.
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.
Another card requested by a friend. Restrictions – no blue, no bling. I found the paint roller paper at Photo Scraps, and, knowing the couple would be painting over LOTS of blue paint, thought it would pull the card together for me.
We moved into our house 18 years ago, with a 2 year old and a bun in the oven. My neighbors across the cul-de-sac had been in their house about 8 months when we moved in, their children were in 2nd, 5th and 8th grades. Fast forward to TODAY…our neighbors have sold their house and are moving into a new home. Their children (all grown & married) and grandchildren (SEVEN!) all signed this card.
Sigh. My neighbor had said we communicate mostly by e-mail now anyway (true – we are both running all the time). At least our cyber connection will remain! It will be strange to not be able to “escape” to her house for 15 minutes when someone in my house has pushed one of my buttons!
I really can’t wait to see their new home!!
