Happy (Pastel) Home
Hi readers and TGIF! I hope you have fun things planned for the weekend ahead! Today I am sharing the last in a series of slimline cards this week. I hope by sharing a few designs like this that maybe I've convinced YOU to try creating one of these cards, especially if you feel like you could use a larger canvas to create on! It's simple enough to cut - it's just an 8 1/2" x 7" piece of cardstock that you fold in half to give you the 8 1/2" x 3 1/2" dimensions.
I have owned these two stamp sets from Sunny Studio called "Happy Home" and "City Streets" for a while now, but I've always been a bit intimidated to use them because of their fine lines and my less-than-stellar coloring skills! I mean it's good enough, but there's always room for improvement! So, I decided to heat emboss the different images on a variety of sherbet colored cardstocks. I think the end result looks like a happy little pastel village that the Care Bears or the Easter bunny might live in!
The base of this card is made from Crumb Cake cardstock. I cut a 8 1/4" x 3 1/4" sheet of yellow paper from the Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow Scalloped paper pack for the first layer. I stamped each of the images in Versamark ink on Highland Heather, Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, Crisp Cantelope (retired), Crumb Cake and Pistachio Pudding (retired) cardstock. I heat embossed each image with white embossing powder. I die cut the images with the coordinating die and layered them onto the card with 3M foam adhesive for added height. I cut some of the grass using green scrap paper and the Lawn Fawn Meadow Borders Lawn Cuts. Before I adhered the grass down, I heat embossed the sentiment in the lower left corner in white embossing powder.
Here are the Happy Home and City Streets stamp sets by Sunny Studio Stamps that I used to create today's card:
