Stampin' Up! Feels Like Home


Stampin' Up!'s Feels Like Home stamps are perfect for a card to congratulate someone on buying a new home!  I'm so excited that this card is on the way to a special young couple that just moved.   I love to watercolor this image.  This time, I decided to just color part of it for the Spotlight Technique.  Such fun! 

Bermuda Bay Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
Layer 1 ~ Shimmery White Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4"
Layer 2 ~ Bermuda Bay Cardstock ~ at least 1-1/2" x 2-3/4" (this will be cut down)
Layer 3 ~ Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper ~ at least 1-1/2" x 2-3/4" (this will be die cut)
Inside ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4"

  • Stamp the image on the Shimmery White CS and the Fluid 100 Watercolor paper, using Staz On ink.  (Using the Stamparatus helps to center the image)
  • While the ink pads are closed, give them a firm squeeze.  Then, open them up to use as paint palettes with the Water Color Painters.  Paint the image on the Watercolor paper.
  • Use a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to color just the word 'home' on the sentiment stamp.  Stamp in the bottom right corner of the Shimmery White CS.
  • Use your favorite adhesive to adhere the Shimmery White layer to the front of the card base. 
  • Once the watercolor is completely dry, use the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out around the door. Don't run the die completely through the machine.  Only go a tad over halfway.  Then, remove the Watercolor Paper and readjust the die to cut the other end.  (This way you can cut a shorter image than the die is.)
  • Trim the Bermuda Bay (Layer 2) to 1/4" bigger than the final die cut piece. 
  • Adhere the Watercolor Layer to the Bermuda Bay Layer.  Then, attach it, centered, on the front of your card. 

Stamp 'Congratulations' using Bermuda Bay ink on the Basic White Cardstock.  Use Staz On to stamp the flower pot in the corner of the Basic White.  Very lightly watercolor the image - don't get it too wet since this isn't watercolor paper.  Adhere the finished Basic White CS to the inside of your card. 

I hope you enjoyed this card!
