Your First Home
Your First Home
Do you remember your first home? Not the apartment you moved to when you first left the comfort of your childhood home. I mean the home you signed on the dotted line for. You know, the one that gave you a panic attack. Now that’s what I’m talking about. Welcome to my post for Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights, October. The theme this month is “Change of Life Circumstances” and I do believe that first home purchase qualifies, don’t you? I’ll tell you how to vote on your favorite projects toward the end of this post.
Choosing the bundle to use for this card was a cinch. The Home Life Bundle (145311) on page 149 of the Stampin’ Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalog, has every image you need to create a cute “Congratulations on your new home” card. For a bundle that wasn’t on the radar for the Wild West Tack Room (aka studio), it sure has been appearing on a regular basis here in the Wild West. See the following posts….
Take a close look to see detail that makes your first house, your first home. Flowers, door knobs, texture and the like soften up the hard, angular lines of this shape. The Delicate White Doily sponged with Lemon-Lime Twist Classic Ink adds another dimension. Can you picture a big tree against the Soft Sky background?
Adding texture with Textured Impressions Embossing Folders will always step up your project. But, did you know that using Thick Whisper White, Very Vanilla or one of Stampin’ Up!s colorful cardstocks will pop embossed texture even more? Why? The thickness creates a deeper impression. Next time you think about embossing Whisper White or Very Vanilla cardstock, consider using the thick versions of these to colors. You won’t be disappointed.
Time to Vote! Every month I participate in an International Blog Highlights Challenge and ask for your vote. If you think I’ve earned your vote, that is. The following link will take you to the October gallery featuring thirty projects from around the world.
- look for my card or just go to entry #30, that’s me.
- When the voting opens you’ll see a heart in the upper corner of my card. Click on that heart, it will turn red. That means you’ve voted.
- You’ll also see a pop-up window that tells you how many votes you have left.
- That’s it!
Thank you for visiting today.
