Feels Like Home Fussy Coloring Lesson


I earned this stamp set Feels Like Home for free with a purchase last month, and if I'm being honest it sat on my shelf for quite some time.

 I do tend to shy away from what I call "fussy coloring" stamp sets. But... once a stamp set enters my craft room, I do like to make at least one card with it. And...I love a challenge. THEN I saw a video from Patty Bennett, a very talented Stampin' Up demonstrator using this set making this very card and I was floored.  I quite thought I could never achieve this, then I did. The moral of the story is...it's just ink and paper. Don't be scared to try something new. Enough about me, now on to the card!  I used a gazillion blends to color the stamped area and the Color Lifter blend to make the vanishing brick background- great idea from Patty. 
Here is a link to ALL the items and markers I used that you can purchase here. Grab up some markers for yourself! 
Option 1: select 6 sets and get a the Feels Like Home stamp set #156607 free
Option 2: pick 13 sets (WOW) and pay only $99 then also pick a free bundle (as long as you do it by Sept 30th when Saleabration ends. I love collecting things, don't you?

Dimensions: thick Basic White 5 1/4 x 4" ish (for blended layer)
Basic Gray Base 5 1/2 x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4", In Good Taste Designer Paper 5 1/4 x 4, Cherry Cobbler: 4 1/2" x 3 1/8", Stitched Rectangle Die to cut the blended layer

Watch the video for the coloring lesson here:

Here's a few other Feels Like Home ideas from Stampin' Up!

Frightfully Cute and Textures and Frames Tombstone Box and Card + 4 extra colored cards

I was struggling to use the Saleabration Textures and Frames set and after consulting a similar set in the Stampin' Up 2021-2022 Annual catalog (Watercolor Shapes) I saw a card layout that just made everything click! Don't hesitate to use your Catalog as an Idea Book!  I started with making this cute card with Frightfully Cute stamp set and then just HAD to make the Tombstone Treat Box!  Aren't the Tombstone Boxes cute?  The colors I used for the swoosh from top to bottom are Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, Pale Papaya and Petal Pink! See the video below. 
Textures and Frames #156616 stamp set is FREE with $50 purchase! 

Then.....I just couldn't stop!  So I made the following cards after the video.
