Happy Housewarming Card

Here is another house-warming card I made for some wonderful clients who recently purchased a property with me.  The inspiration was the key paper from the DCWV Tradewinds Stack of patterned cardstock.  Handing keys to a new home-owner is the BEST FEELING!!  I love house and key motifs for my house-warming cards.

I rounded the edges of the cardstock and the card itself with my Corner Chomper and used my Cricut Hoot ‘n Holler cartridge to cut out the house and the Just Because cards cartridge to cut out the tag behind it.  I inked a cardboard key and tied it through a brad I inserted with my Crop-o-Dile and wrote “home” and a swirl inside the heart.  If you’re not familiar with the products I’ve used, you may be amused by the funny names for them.  I don’t come up with them – I just use them and laugh at the names.  🙂

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
