Home Sweet Home

This was a slightly belated housewarming card for a former colleague who recently bought a house.


Here's a slightly different angle:


The sentiment was released this weekend at Squigglefly [click here to get it!]

I think I unconsciously used Clean and Simple's sketch 108 (sort of) for this card, but I only realised it because I happened to glance at the handy PDF of sketches 96-108 I have pinned up on my bulletin board today. Weird! Great sketch though ;)

I used versamark to stamp the houses (one stamp, repeated). I've found that if you want a darker impression just press the stamp down for longer. I'm not sure whether I've shared this tip before, so if I have my apologies. :)

Size of card: approx 4" round(ish)

Card/paper - Quill white cardstock, Matte photo paper, Utopia collection by Kaisercraft, Cre8tive textured cardstock

Stamps - "Home Sweet Home" from Squigglefly (by me!), Inque Boutique "Memoirs"
Ink - Versamark
Tools - Carl rotary trimmer, Pixma printer, Bigshot, Big Scallop nestabilities, Circle nestabilities

And I just thought I'd share another picture of my girl Abby - this time showing where she likes to sleep while I craft.


I swear she has that 'oh you've just gotten up so you're going to feed me' look on her face that she wears so often ;)

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a lovely day!


  1. Such a sweet card, I am sure that your friend love it.

  2. Wonderful layout, wonderful colors and wonderful combination of patterns/stamps!

  3. Such a fab card - love those subtle houses and the colours are soooooo fun!
    Also love the pic of your cat too, bet she's a fab crafting buddy :)

  4. your cat is so pretty Jess! I love your sentiment and the way you used it in this clean and simple card design. I used your sentiment too - it went PERFECTLY with another one of the new images at Squigglefly.

  5. As always your sentiment is fantastic Jess. Sweet card and love the colours.
