Kraft-y Hearts Blog Share: Day 2

Celebrating Close To My Heart's 
February Stamp Of The Month: Home Sweet Home

Hi All! Welcome to Day 2 of the Kraft-y Hearts Blog Share! Did you see Lynn's innovative use of the Home Sweet Home set? You definitely want to check it out.

Today's project is a simple one. I have some friends who recently purchased their first home. Using the Home Sweet Home stamp set for their card was kind of a no-brainer. Let's take a look:

Since this card was for the whole family, I wanted it to be fairly gender-neutral. Kraft Cardstock was, of course, the perfect base. I kept the colors bright using White Daisy and Cranberry Cardstock and Outdoor Denim Exclusive Ink. The Chevron Ribbon is from the new Idea Book and very nice to work with. (I like ribbon that ties easily. My hands down favorite is our Color-Ready Seam Binding!) I couldn't resist adding a pop of color with a little yellow flower form the Paradise Blooms collection. I attached it to the bow with a white brad from my stash. "Congratulations" is from the For Every Occasion stamp set and is stamped in Outdoor Denim Exclusive Ink. I added a little Outdoor Denim bling using Blue and Green Sparkles.

Here's  a quick look at the inside:

The White Daisy Cardstock is cut at 5 x 3 3/4 inches. I used the Tiny Typewriter Alphabet stamp set (retired) to spell out "on your NEW HOME!!" in Outdoor Denim Ink. A few little Cranberry sparkles add some extra zing.

Here are some close-ups:

I hope you enjoyed today's little card. Remember, that the stamp of the month can be yours for $5 with any qualifying order of $50 or more, or you can purchase it on its own for $17.95. Now, if you haven't made it over to From My Bungalow to see what the über-kraft-y Lynn Darda, has been up to this month, hop on over! And don't forget to come back tomorrow to see what else we've done with the February Stamp of the Month!

  2. Striking design. I love the navy and red with the Kraft! I agree with Kim, your bows are so cool and just perfect for each project.

  3. Thanks, Ladies! That bow is the biggest bang for the buck I know. :) I'll do a photo tutorial on it. (Ribbon and glue dots (or bitty staples) that's all it takes!)
