This is another card that we made at our monthly Stamp Club meeting. It uses the stamp set called Hearts Come Home. This stamp set has matching Edgelits called Hometown Greetings (although we didn’t use them on this card) and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.
Commercial Break: Before, I forget, I need to remind you that if you want to order from Stampin’ Up! you need to do it before December 14th in order to receive it by Christmas. Also, if you want to take advantage of the 10% off on this Bundle you will need to order it before the end of the month.
Back to our regularly scheduled program: This stamp set is one of the cutest in the Holiday Catalog. Who doesn’t love that cute Santa and his sleigh flying over the houses? It has the most beautiful sentiments too for both inside and outside of the card. The Edgelits are gorgeous and can be used year round. Really. You need to get this set while you can still save the 10%! I can’t guarantee that it will still be available once the new Annual Catalog comes out in June.
This is the third card we made at our monthly club meeting. It uses a new stamp set that is in the 2017 Holiday Catalog called Hearts Come Home. It has a matching set of Edgelits called Hometown Greetings and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.
I absolutely love the sentiments in this stamp set. There is “Joy To The World” that we used on this card but there is also one that says “All Hearts Come Home For Christmas”, “Wishing You A Beautiful Season And A New Year Of Peace And Happiness” , and “Enjoy The Warmth Of The Season”. I especially love the All Hearts sentiment. This will be the first Christmas in 37 years that Rob and I will be alone. It is very sad but I know in my heart that my kids want to be here and would if they could.
To make this card we first embossed a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Embossing Folder called Softly Falling. They I used one of the dies to cut out the houses and layering it over a piece of Night Of Navy cardstock that I had cut out using the Layering Ovals Framelits. I embossed the Santa and his sleigh stamp with White Embossing Powder and then layered the piece of a Whisper White scalloped oval.
Hearts Come Home is a new stamp set in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog. It has a set of matching Edgelits called Hometown Greetings and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle. The Edgelits are adorable. I didn’t use them in this card but here is a picture of a card that Stampin’ Up! put in the catalog.
One of the reasons I love this set is the sentiment “All hearts come home for Christmas”. This Christmas will be the first one where two of out three of my sons and their families can not come home. They all have jobs where they have to work holidays. Thankfully David lives around here so he will be there (if he doesn’t have to work). I’ll miss the others including (especially) the grandchildren. I was kind of hoping the kids would bring me the grandchildren and then they could go back home to work but I don’t think they will go for it. I’ll keep working on it though!
