On The Horizon CAS New Home Card PP591

by Joanne James15. May 2022 08:00

Today it's Sunday and time for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players! It's the turn of the fabulous Laurie to host this week and she has a clean and simple challenge for us to work with:


I needed a couple of new home cards so I used Amy's fab sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches this week for my layout and set to work. This is what I came up with:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

On The Horizon - I have been making samples for my next class so had the Horizon Dies out on my desk and thought the trio of houses would be perfect for today's card. I combined them with a piece of green New Horizons designer paper for the horizontal element (I stacked three of the diecut house pieces for extra thickness). I diecut a circle from the same sheet of New Horizons paper and stamped the trees onto it directly in Garden Green to sit behind the houses and give depth to my simple scene.

Stitched Detail -  The stitched detail on my circle and banner are courtesy of the new Stylish Shapes Dies - I just love the subtle extra detail:

I also added a pink enamel heart to accent one of the houses to complete the front of my card.

New Home - The sentiment on the front of my card is also from the 'On the Horizon' stamp set and I thought it would work for a 'new home' card. I added another sentiment to the inside of my card to continue the theme, this time from the retired 'Home life' set

I think this trio of house dies are perfect for a clean and simple new home card - how about you? Leave me a comment below - I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Enjoy your day; the James Juniors both start end of year exams at school next week so we will be interspersing revision with a trip to the poultry centre to see the new delivery of hens that has just arrived (although the children have been warned we will not be bringing some home with us!) I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

What a great way to interpret the challenge....those little houses are perfect and you've created just the right CAS scene!  Love this!  I have been attracted to yellow lately...saw some pretty yellow shirts at the shops yesterday so I think I might be inspired to get out some yellows here in the future!

Oh, Joanne! What a delightful scene you have created! These little houses are so perfect for this challenge. Such a creative and artistic card! I never even thought of this die set when I was struggling to find something with a house on it.  Have a wonderful week!

Joanne, I love how you created the fabulous sunset backdrop.  I also love that you die-cut the houses from white - the red heart really pops against them.  Fabulous CAS card

Such a wonderful scene you created Joanne! That DSP really is the perfect detail and that itty bitty heart just finishes the card beautifully.
