New Home

 No it's not me thinking of a new home - not sure I could face packing up and moving all my crafty stash 😀😀..  I have made a 'New Home' card though using a wood-mounted stamp set which I've had for some years.  Re-visiting crafty items which haven't seen the light of day for ages can be quite an interesting exercise and it is ALMOST as good as having something new to spur the mojo into action.  Naturally being an old stamp set there were no dies to match and not even a punch, or if there was I didn't purchase it so all the little pieces were stamped, fussy cut and assembled into a little scene.  Started with a cream oval die cut and used a freebie texture stamp to make some 'ground' and a little touch of grass before popping the houses and trees in place.  Raided the scrap boxes for some other pieces of card and that's it - a New Home card made.

I hope you all remembered to put the clocks forward - it will be nice to have  more daylight each afternoon/evening now all we need is some warmer temperatures.

  1. Val you’re certainly making some lovely cards with your rediscovered stamp sets and I’m sure that certainly helps your mo jo..look forward to seeing more the colour tones of your New Home card and I think I’ve also got that stamp set somewhere


  2. Finding old stamps is like having new stash isn't it!
    Lovely new home card Val. x

  3. This is such a happy sweet scene, it makes you smile and is perfect for new beginnings x

  4. A fabulous New Home card Val. Like you I would not like the idea of having to pack up my craftroom, in fact I would have to get rid of some as I have far to much.

  5. Hi Val

    A great new home card!

    My Sister moves house this week so I am on new home cards too for us and my Mum to give.

    More fabulous fussy cutting from you to create a lovely little scene. Love the little trees!

    Hope you had a good weekend.

  6. Great colours which I would never put together but they work really well. Lovely little scene. I did remember the clocks but always remind my son who will have no idea.
