Welcome Home



Hey Crafty Friends! This is Julissa of Paper Gems by Jules on the blog today showcasing the new My Happy Place stamp set. This cozy chair & pillow set with sentiments is so fun for a new home card or thinking of you card and lots of other things. I even made a bonus card that is just Spooktacular... so let's settle in to some crafting!



For this first card, I kept it simple with some some colors that I'd love in my home. Light rustic wood floors (patterned paper), subtle light teal wallpaper on an accent wall (Kindness is Magic Patterned Paper) and a cozy grey chair with some texture to it... and how do you give it texture when it's just a stamp... check it out!



I started by coloring in the chair the way I would with any image. I used the Toner Grey Copics to create the shadows. Once done coloring, I stamped the Dance with Denim Background stamp over the chair using a grey ink. This instantly give a denim texture to the sofa. There are so many great samples of this... but here's one that might "haunt" you! 🦇



Isn't this spooktacular?! For some reason, I was inspired to make something that Ozzy Osborne would have. Coloring this with yellow oranges, I shaded the sofa as I would any other image. Using the Hey Cool Cats Background stamp, I stamped that cool cheetah print onto the chair. To get the richest black, I used VersaFine Onyx ink, but let it air dry.


For an added look, I stamped the same Hey Cool Cats Background onto black card stock using clear embossing powder to create a leopard wall paper look. To keep with the theme, the pillow needed to be a little batty. The stamp and sentiment are from the Spooktacular stamp set.



Isn't it fun how you can change the whole vibe of this cozy chair with some simple stamping?! What patterns will you make with this new set?


Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you found some inspiration. Until next time...


Happy Crafting!
