New Home and a NBUS card!

The lovely Darnell is hosting her third NBUS challenge.
 For those of you who don't know this term it means " Never Before Used Schtuff"! 
Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.) 

Just before Christmas - exactly a week before- my son and family moved into their new house. Up till now they have lived in military accommodation, but as he has just taken up his last posting before leaving the RAF they decided to buy. Of course this meant a new home card had to be made and I had the perfect stamp set for it - the SU Holiday Home set, which is now retired. I will be keeping it though as I love the different houses and is useful for so many occasions.  So here is the card I made them.

The sentiment is raised up as I smudged it when I stamped directly on the card! I'm also entering this into Addicted to Stamps and More where the challenge is to "Make your Mark". The background was sponged and the house coloured with Promarkers, and to Pixies Playground as the house and sentiment label and hearts used some small snippets. It's a long time since I've been over there - hope they haven't forgotten me!

  3. Wow Sue, such a great New Home card. Just perfect in fact.

    I only just squeaked in to buy that stamp set and hadn't realised that it's now retired - most unusual for me to hit lucky and not miss the boat!

  9. Awesome card for a new home! I really hemmed and hawed over if I should get that stamp set or not. I decided to pass... maybe regrettably.

  13. This is quite sensational, Sue! I would have thought to stamp the house in the black and white, but not to go the extra mile and first sponge a colored background behind them which makes them WAY more spectacular!! And, of course, only coloring the middle house is so fun! Good job in simply popping another sediment over the boo-boo! Quick thinking and I actually like the result! A happy accident!! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #3! I hope you're having a great week!! Hugs, Darnell
