Sharing a love of creating handmade cards

Wishing You Well – Coming Home

For this card, I wanted to create a Halloween  setting. Good thing I was not going for spooky because I missed the mark on that one. When you purchase the Coming Home stamp set, $3 from each set sold is donated to charity for adoption, infertility, and foster care. This is stamp set is part of a fun suite of products that could be used for  projects all year round. I will be making some of those in the coming weeks.

While this card was fairly easy to make, it isn’t as easy to describe in writing so I may attempt my first how-to video for this card. When the video is completed, I will post a link here.

Cardstock and Dimensions (inches)

  • Cherry Cobbler – 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
  • Soft Suede – 5 1/4 x 3 7/8, plus scrap for banner
  • Pumpkin Pie – 5 1/2 x 4 (rectangle die cut – 5 1/8 x 3 3/4)
  •  Very Vanilla – 5 x 3 1/2 (rectangle die cut 4 3/4 x 3 3/8), scraps to stamp images and greeting
  • Old Olive – Scrap for hill


Highlights for this card:


The Pumpkin Pie and Very Vanilla layers were cut out using the Stitched Rectangle dies. The Old Olive piece was cut out using the curvy hill die, then run through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine with the Tasteful Textiles die. Once it had texture, it was run again through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine with a Stitched Rectangle die to match the Very Vanilla layer.


Two different houses were used to build the house on this card; they were simply die cut and then one was attached on top of the other. The Stampin’ Blends listed in the product list were used to color in the house, wreath, and light in the street lamp.

The greeting is from the Gather Together stamp set and the greeting layers were created by the Banners Pick-a-Punch.
