New Home Card

Afternoon All,

Following on my yesterday's post I thought I'd show you the new home card I made for my niece, Louise.
If you are thinking it's a lot of pink, you're right! Louise loves everything pink, shiny, glittery and very girly and her new home is a true reflection of all the things she loves ... even the basin in the kitchen is pink :) So, of course, this card had to be all those things too. Being able to make a card so personal has got to be one of the best reasons for cardmaking :)

Here's a list of the materials I used:

- white, A5 size, deckle edged base card
- Pink Sorbet cardstock, Papermill Direct, trimmed to fit the front of the card
- Textures embossing folder, Distress, Crafter's Companion
- pink printed silk ribbon and deep pink glitter ribbon from stash
- snippet of satin finish silver cardstock for matting topper
- white printer quality card for topper
- Squiggles digital stamp, Home, coloured with ProMarkers in shades of pink, lilac and green. (The edges of the topper were also outlined with a blossom pink ProMarker)
- Stickles, Cotton Candy to decorate and edge the topper
- New Home button and pink gems from stash

It was simple enough to put together too, made entirely from stash and I even managed to use a snippet which is perfect because it gives me the best of reasons to pop over to Pixie's Snippets Playground for the first time this week :)

Although I've been something of a bad blogger recently it's not because I haven't been crafting, it's just that I've not been around much to blog about it. However, I do have lots to show when I do find the time - some scrap pages, more cards featuring Brusho backgrounds, a box card I haven't shown yet, and several interesting trips and days out we've had. I've just sorted out the photos taken of the Great Scottish Tapestry ... there's lots of photos - it's a very long tapestry - so I may have to write that up in two parts.

So, with the need to catch up, I'll bid you farewell for now and as in Arnie's immortal words, I will be back :)

Happy Crafting,

And I bet you just knew I would adore this card Elizabeth! Pink ticks all the boxes and the fabulous ribbon is a lovely touch! A pink sink in the kitchen? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm :) Got me wondering here!

Tee, hee - I did wonder if they'd finally got round to making butler's sinks from pink porcelain! :) But what a Pink Princess anyhow - so sweet!

That pink detailed house is sweet and bet the real house is too. Love your big bow...it is gorgeous!

Finally posted some photos of the new garden. You will laugh at just how small it is! But you will understand what I mean about the teensy bottles I will have to use for that garden blooms challenge! lol Sadly, the photos barely show the one of two blooms that I have...and I truly mean one or two!!!

Lovely new home card Elizabeth. I haven't any ready in my box . . . so you've made me think about getting some cards made for those occasions OTHER than birthdays. Thank you.

Hugs, Sarn xxx
