Coming Home

Coming Home is a cute stamp set that is in the Stampin’ Up!® August – December 2020 Mini Catalog (previously known as the Holiday Catalog).  It has a set of coordinating dies called Home Together and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.  It is also the “Making A Difference” stamp set of this catalog.  This means that when you purchase this stamp set, Stampin’ Up!® will donate $3 to charities devoted to adoption, foster care and infertility.  By the way, every catalog Stampin’ Up!® puts out has a Making A Difference stamp set in it.  They have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to various charities over the years.

This is a very simple card to make.  I stamped each element in it and cut them out using the coordinating Home Together Dies.  The house is So Saffron, the trees are Just Jade and the car is Misty Moonlight.  I had to make the car blue because the first car I ever owned was a dark blue Volkswagon Bug.  I loved this car until I moved to the North Country.  Volkswagons were not known for their heating system and in the winter I had to cover my legs with a blanket and hold an ice scrapper to keep the windshield clear of ice.  Needless to say, I traded my Bug in for a car that had heat before the next winter.  It was a little too chilly for me!

The sentiment is from the stamp set called Country Home.  This set is in the 2020/2021 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog.

  1. Love this card so much! I bought this set because I thought it would be perfect for Mike’s business. But your VW story brought back memories. I dated a guy in college with a VW bug. It was always freezing in the winter – and this is VA! I can’t imagine how cold it was in NY! Because of the engine placement, though, we never got stuck in snow! Still, a light blue VW bug was my dream car. Until I had kids, of course. Now, I love my Explorer.
