Home Sweet Home

House Warming Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using JustRite Vintage Labels Eight and Spellbinders at www.amazingpapergrace.com
Good morning sweet friends, popping in to share a card I made at the beginning of the month, it was simply waiting for a bow.  Even though it got all bowed up, it’s a masculine card that’s going off to my sweet son who just moved into a new abode.  I had new stamps and new dies on hand so this came together quite easily.   I was playing around with a gorgeous new JustRite Background called Ironworks Vintage Labels Eight and thought it would be the perfect backdrop for a fairly new Die D’Lite by Spellbinders called Home Sweet Home.  

Card Making Idea by Becca Feeken
I created the focal panel using Spellbinders Timeless Rectangles and Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight and my stamped background.  On top of that I added Vintage Labels Eight followed by a rosette then another layer of Vintage Labels Eight and finished off with the cut and embossed Home Sweet Home words.  So easy. To finish, I glued the focal panel onto a card base that was 11″ by 4-1/4″ scored at 5-3/8″.  Below you can see how I assembled the back before putting my stamped panel on top.  Pearls were added to the “O” in home so that I would have some way to pop it up using foam tape.  Lastly, I had a darling silver key that I hung off of the ‘E”.

Rubber Stamps: JustRite PapercraftIronworks Vintage Labels Eight
Craft Paper: Bazzill Black, Neenah Classic Crest – Natural White – 80lb Smooth, Vintage Finds – Teresa Collins
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black and Clear Embossing Powder
Accessories: Vintage Labels Eight, Spellbinders called Home Sweet Home, Spellbinders Timeless Rectangles, Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight,

That’s all for me today friends, lots of behind the scenes happenings at Amazing Paper Grace as we prepare for annual blog maintenance.  I hope to be back tomorrow with another card done earlier in the month. Don’t forget, if you have questions on the posted card, leave a comment and I’ll answer in the Question Parking Lot at the end of each post.

Question Parking Lot:

So sorry friends, it wasn’t until Frances on comment #30 asked me which paper I used that I discovered my product list was missing.  It was in my draft but deleted somewhere in the process – I have restored it!   The paper pad used was Teresa Collins – Vintage Finds :-)

  • Maureen KillenAugust 16, 2014 - 3:43 pm

    Good evening Becca,
    It’s 9.39 p.m. in the UK and I have to say that this card is so beautiful. The way to prop up the “Home Sweet Home” was a stroke of genius and a lesson I’ll remember for other awkward die cuts. I’m sure your son will love it, and if he doesn’t – send it to me !!!! xxxReplyCancel

  • Anne (UK)August 16, 2014 - 3:54 pm

    Oh Becca, this is so gorgeous. Absolutely love the key with cross inside a (kind of) heart.
    Do hope your son soon settles into his new home.

    Such a beautiful card. I love how you think outside the circle with the dies by cutting them up and layering different sets of dies to get your finished product. It is a great way of getting the most out of your dies!! Thanks for sharing with us all.ReplyCancel

  • Mary NaceySeptember 7, 2014 - 1:06 am

    How did you get the upper layer of vintage labels eight, the one just on top of the rosette, to cut the text paper and the black rim around it? I can’t make that die cut a border and the center piece? Help!!!ReplyCancel
