Stampin’ Up! Neutrals Painted Hometown Greetings

Happy happy HAWWWWWMPP Day, y’all!!  And this is the day I head in to Salt Lake City!  I’ll meet Amy and Jari and Beth at the Stampin’ Up! Home Office and we’ll take a tour – check out where the magic (and the pickin’ and shippin’!) happen! Then it’ll be back to the hotel to get things in full swing on Thursday!

Meanwhile – I’ll be trying to switch back to “day walking” from two days of “night walking”….yawn! 😉

My card today is a layered confection of neutrals (like that?  “Layered confection”! LOL) using the uber-pretty Hometown Greetings Edgelits and a sentiment from the Painted Harvest stamp set.  Take a look-see:

I was playing along with the TGIF Challenge this week…

…but I brought neither card stock nor ink in Sahara Sand – so… I had to get creative.  I decided to add Gold Glimmer paper for one of the neutrals.

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla card stock for the card front.  Yes – the whole card uses Very Vanilla – not the Whisper White that it looks like in my pictures.  I have no idea what happened there… 😦

The first layer of Hometown Greetings Edgelits die cuts is the Gold Glimmer layer.  Now – here’s a trick.  I had thought out the three layers I was going to use – so I decided I wanted to reverse one of the cuts.  I cut the Glimmer Paper layer by turning the paper upside down on the cutting platform.  When I cut it out that way, as soon as I turned it over (right side up) I had exactly what I wanted.  Take a look at that layer compared to the lowest Very Vanilla layer!  Same die….two looks!

I cut it out and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next up, I cut my Crumb Cake layer and adhered it over the top of the Glimmer Paper with Liquid Glue.  Be generous and give it time to adhere.  

The final layer is cut in Very Vanilla.  After I cut it out, I stamped the pretty sentiment from Painted Harvest in Soft Suede ink on the bottom, then I adhered it with Liquid Glue.  I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Soft Suede mat.

I tied a Linen Thread Billie Moan bow and adhered it near the sentiment with a Glue Dot.  Then I tied a double-strand “regular” bow with Linen Thread and stuck that on top.  

I added a few gold heart Metallic Enamel Shapes and the card front was done!

On the inside, I got a little creative.  I cut a single Soft Suede panel and adhered a Very Vanilla Hometown Greetings Edgelits die cut over the top with Liquid Glue.  Then I stamped a sentiment from the Hearts Come Home stamp set in Soft Suede in the top corner.  A gold heart Metallic Shape finished it off.

I Fast Fused the panel into my Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got some houses from Hearts Come Home in Soft Suede across the front.  I alternated between stamping “full strength” and “stamping off once”.  That gave each house a different look – using just one ink color…

…and I used the same technique with the two pine tree images on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  It’s pretty neutral – I hope! I love this little Hometown Greetings Edgelits die set – and it’s so pretty when paired with its bundled Hearts Come Home stamp set.  I like the color scheme for a Fall-kind of card, hence the Thanksgiving-ish sentiment from the Painted Harvest stamp set!  Hope you like!

    Your creativity knows no bounds! Wonder if you’ll get to meet Billie Moan or have you already? Wonder if your new SIP team mates will be there? (Well, I know for sure Amy will be!) Enjoy the tour, the fellowship and all your free goodies. I will be aiming for Orlando On Stage! Finn is adorable in that photo!
