The Stamp Review Crew: Coming Home

Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop: Inspiring you one stamp set at a time

Welcome to another Stamp Crew Review Blog Hop!  We share our take on a selected stamp set every first and third Monday.  We are playing with a fun stamp set from the Jul - Dec 2020 Mini Catalog, Coming Home, which can be used from fall into the winter. This set coordinates and can be bundled with the Home Together dies.   If you are following the blog hop order, you have just come from the very talented Cindy Elam's blog.

The stamps in this set easily lend themselves to fun coloring techniques, and watercoloring is always my favorite!  I combined the sketch at Sunday Stamps with this week's blog hop.

I love the color gradient that watercoloring gives, and it is relaxing as well.

Here's this week's sketch by Amy.

Stamps: Coming Home, Winter Woods; Paper: Misty Moonlight, Whisper White, Trimming the Town DSP; Ink: Poppy Parade, Mossy Meadow, Seaside Spray, Coastal Cabana, Soft Suede, Smoky Slate, Basic Black; Accessories: Linen Thread, Aquapainter, Home Together Dies, In the Woods Dies, Stitched Shapes Dies, Die-Cutting Machine, Dimensionals.

ICYMI, here's a previous card I created with Coming Home.

Make sure you hop over to the always fabulous Betty Traciak to see what fun projects she has put together with this week's set.

Wow you worked your scene perfectly with that sketch! Love this! I am partial to VW Beetles!

Oh my gosh, Heidi! What wonderful cards! I LOVE the VW card. Who can resist a VW with a tree tied on top! The pine boughs and cones behind the oval are the perfect touches. You nailed this edition of the Stamp Review Crew!

Cindy said...

Goodness, that tree tied on the VW with twine is absolutely perfect! Love everything about this card, and you nailed that sketch!

I love the tree tied to the VW too! lol I don't know why in the world I didn't think of that. Coloring is awesome and use of the sketch good job! I like the fall card too. I wanted to make a fall one too but ran out of time.

Fun to meet up on a hop again Heidi! Your delicate watercoloring is a beautiful contrast to the dark background. Lovely!
