Welcome to the Neighborhood - Stampin' Up! Arrange a Wreath

  We've got a few new neighbors on our street so I have to hop to it to get some cards made so we can go introduce ourselves before they aren't "new" anymore.  I thought I could make a cute little house card by pairing the Stitched Triangle dies with the stitched square from Stitched Shapes dies.


 The Paper Players challenge this week has a great set of colors and I thought they would be perfect for a little trio of houses. 

  I started with a Whisper White thick card base then a layer of Night of Navy, then a Stitched Rectangle embossed with the Subtle embossing folder.  Before embossing I stamped the "welcome" from Well Said in Night of Navy.

  Once I had the houses cut out and popped on dimensionals I added a few finishing touches.  The Arrange a Wreath bundle had a heart and flower that were just the right size.  The heart is stamped in Melon Mambo and cut out and adhered with a dimensional.  The flower is cut out from Pool Party cardstock and in the center I added an adhesive pearl.  The Pool Party house has a Night of Navy baker's twine bow.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?

  1. Amanda, this is fabulous! Such a fun and creative way to use our color combo! I love the little pink heart! So happy you joined us at The Paper Players this week!

  2. What a perfect trio of little houses Amanda - the perfect new home card. I've made 2 new home cards this week too - must be a sign of lockdown easing that everyone seems to be moving to pastures new! Thanks for playing along with my colour challenge over at The Paper Players this week!
