Anemone Bouquet Cards by Amy K.

Hello!  Amy K. here with some inspiration using the new Anemone stamps.  When I first laid eyes on these floral layering stamps, I was in love!  This set is super duper easy to line up!  There are so many possibilities at adding color to this stamp set!

Both my cards start with a background stamped with the Watercolor Background in Mango pigment ink.  For my first card, the blooms from Anemones were stamped with Red Currant pigment ink.  I achieved the layers definition by simply using my Misti and stamping each layer multiple times.  This way you don't need other colors of ink!   The blooms were hand cut and set aside.  The greenery was stamped in Mojito and Spruce pigment inks and fussy cut with scissors.

To build my bouquet, I arranged the flowers and then picked up the whole arrangement with Press 'n Seal.  This keeps your arrangement just how you like it!  I also used this to "shield" my flowers from any black ink when stamping the sentiment.  Using Brushstrike Alpha Lowercase and Versafine ink, I stamped the word 'hello' and then removed the Press 'n Seal.  To finish my sentiment, I stamped 'thanks a bunch' from Tiny Sentiments with Versamark, white heat embossed onto a thin strip of black cardstock, and adhered with foam adhesive.  Flat clear confetti was adhered to finish!

My second card uses the same Anemone stamps but using Grape and Blackberry pigment inks.  Again using Press 'n Seal, I arranged my flowers in the center of my Watercolor Background panel.  I wanted the flowers to take center stage so I added a small sentiment strip stamped with 'how are you?' (from Tiny Sentiments) in Versamark and white heat embossed.  One end of the sentiment banner was trimmed at an angle and adhered with foam adhesive.  More flat clear confetti was added for shine!

You Can Count on Me Card by Nicole // Gilmore Girls Inspired Post Week

Oy with the poodles already!

This is week is a special week on the Right at Home Blog as my Design Team and I are hosting a Gilmore Girls Inspired Post Week! On Monday through Friday a different member of the Design Team will post a project inspired by the love and friendship theme that is present throughout the Gilmore Girls series. I'm up first and I'm so excited to share my card with you. Make sure to read until the end for details on how to win a special Gilmore Girls giveaway pack I put together!

You Can Count on Me Card by Nicole // Gilmore Girls Inspired Post Week -

I knew from the beginning of my process that I wanted to include three elements in my design: coffee, watercolors, and a mustard yellow color to symbolize Luke's famous mugs. I die cut three mugs from watercolor paper and stamped the coordinating images from my Cup of Joy set on to them. I used the little dot from the set to stamps a polka dot pattern on the largest mug. Then I colored all three in with varying shades of blue, green, and mustard watercolors.

Once they dried I cut a slit along the top of the mug so I could slip them into each other. That way it looks like they're stacked together. I popped this finished piece up onto a white doily I cut using an older My Favorite Things die. I then added that finished element to a stitched rectangle I cut from my Find the Beauty Die Set. I tied some brown baker's twine around the bottom to add some texture and finished off with my sentiment from Tiny Sentiments. I think the greeting completes the card perfectly and is reminiscent of the show.

Now for the giveaway...

To make this week even more fun I put together a special giveaway pack that one special reader will win at the end of the week. All you have to do is follow along this entire week and make sure to leave a comment on each day!

Gilmore Girls is a show that I grew up on. I truly believe it has had a major influence on who I am today so I hope you're as excited for this week as I am.

I hope you a great day!


I Love You To Pieces Card by Joan

Hi friends, Joan here, sharing a sweet card made with 3 Right at Home stamps -- Happy Mail, Tiny Sentiments, and the Grid Background stamp.

I Love You To Pieces Card by Joan -

My idea was to pair the sentiment, I love you to pieces, with with the Grid Background stamp. Since a grid is made up of pieces, those two seemed like a good fit. Once I settled on the basic idea, it was easy to create:

I Love You To Pieces Card by Joan -
  • Embossed the grid stamp in gold onto white cardstock.  
  • Blended distress inks onto the grid and cut with a heart shaped die.  
  • Die cut two more hearts out of white cardstock.
  • Adhered the three hearts on top of one another.
  • Stamped and embossed in gold the center of the large flower from Happy Mail, and stamped over the gold center with the flower, using the same Distress inks.
  • Stamped and embossed the sentiment.
  • Took a thin piece of double sided tape and added it to a white card.  Placed gold foil over the tape, rubbed with my hand, and removed to reveal a fun gold stripe.
  • Speckled black paint onto a white card and let dry.
  • Adhered the flower, heart, and sentiment using foam tape for a bit of dimension.  

Thanks for stopping by today!
