Coming Home Stampset and Making a Difference!

Today I'm sharing another card featuring the Trimming the Town Bundle from the August to December Mini Catalogue.  I love this bundle and to make it even better, the bundle includes a "Making a Difference" stamp set - Coming Home.  Whether you purchase the stampset in the bundle, individually or as part of the Suite Collection, Stampin' Up! donate $4 to charities devoted to adoption, foster card and infertility!

My card uses Poppy Parade (my favourite colour) and Misty Moonlight!  A perfect combination!


  1. Cut Poppy Parade cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Designer Series Paper 4" x 5 1/4" and adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal.
  3. Cut Poppy Parade cardstock 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"
  4. Cut Designer Series Paper 2" x 3 1/2" and adhere to the top of the Poppy Parade 3 1/2" square piece using Stampin' Seal.
  5. Cut Whisper White cardstock 2 3/4" x 3 1/2" and cut out trees using Dies.
  6. Adhere to the bottom of the Poppy Parade 3 1/2" square piece using Stampin' Seal.
  7. Stamp house and small tree using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colour with Stampin' Blends - I used Pool Party, Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Crumb Cake.
  8. Adhere tree on right hand side using Stampin' Seal.
  9. Adhere house beside tree using Dimensionals.
  10. Adhere a star on the top of the tree.
  11. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals.
  12. Cut out sentiments from Designer Series Paper.
  13. Tie ribbon around card base and tie a bow.
  14. Adhere 3 dot embellishments above ribbon
