Stampin' Up's new Warm Welcome contains so many cute images to colour. I used it for a Congratulations card for a friend that moved into a new house. I also just found out the friend is expecting - so I will need to make a new Congratulations card! Looking forward to using the little shoes for that one.
I must admit that the little shoes and the cat are my favourite images in the Warm Welcome Stamp set. Hmmm, maybe the friends sharing a coffee is my favourite? Its so hard to choose! It would have been tempting to buy it just for those, but the rest of the set is fantastic too. The Warm Welcome stamp set comes with coordinating dies making it easy to cut out all the cute images. The dies also come with cut outs for the welcome sign I used on the housewarming card. Die cuts for a closed door with a door knocker and door knob are also included. The designers even thought of adding little numbers!
Make it Yourself!
This is a good set if you want to learn how to colour using alcohol markers. The images are small and easy to add touches of colour too. The door is large enough to try some shading. I used Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends but you could experiment with different fun colours such as Real Red or Night of Navy. When using blends, stamp a few images and have fun playing with colouring and then use whichever colouring turned out to be your favourite.
I chose to use Pool Party as the accent colour with a bit of Early Espresso. I love browns with Pool Party. Grey would work as well but I think the brown gives the look of a wood door which I liked. The Brick Embossing folder was the obvious choice for the wall.
One trick that is hard to see in the picture is I adhered the door opening flat onto the card, but used a couple Stampin' Dimensionals (or poppy uppy things as I call them) underneath the door to give it the illusion of really being open.
