Now, I've changed my mind. Of course, there are a few things I hoard (glitter unicorn papers, ahem!), and a few "keeper" sets, but I'm confident enough now to know that Stampin'Up! will be replacing the retiring products with new, better ones, sets that will refresh our makes and our classes, and build on what skills we and our customers already have. New products are a fantastic opportunity, because they increase our teaching resources as well as giving us and our customers new products to drool over!
That in mind, here is my make: a New Home card. I have used an already-retired embossing folder for the roof, and one that is - sob! - retiring this time for the brickwork.
The windows and door are all made with the Home Sweet Home thinlets, and this set is definitely a keeper for me. It's so versatile, and has so many pieces that are perfectly sized for cards as well as 3D makes, so I urge you to invest if you haven't already before it's gone for good! The trees don't have thinlets - they were handcut.
I used fine-tip glue to "colour in" the windows, to give them a glassy look. I'm not sure how noticable that is, but it makes me pleased with myself 😁
And it even folds flat to put in an envelope! Go me!
I'm now trying to decide if I need to paint my own front door yellow...?
We've got an awesome hop going on today, so do click through and see what's going on with some of the other Jems! Hope to see you soon!
