There’s No Place Like Home….

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with Casology Challenge Week 118: Home!

Week 118 - Home

First let me say Thank you to Judy and the other ladies over at CASology for choosing my candy apple card as an Honorable Mention.  I was so excited to see my card on the list.  Just in case you missed that card you can find it here.

Now on to the card for this week.

When I first saw the cue word, I wasn’t sure what to do because I do not have any home stamps, dies nothing.  I have pattern paper with homes on them but that didn’t appeal to me.

On Wednesday, as I was cleaning up and organizing my dies, I found a Lawn Fawn Die that I didn’t even know I had.

Happy Trails Lawn Cuts

Its the Happy Trails die set. I said to myself, why do I have this and not the stamp set.  That didn’t make sense to me.  I look thought my stamps every day and have never seen a set that matches this.  So, I didn’t give it a second thought.

On Thursday, something told me to check my stamp sets to check if I had the matching stamps that goes with that die.  If I do not have that set, then I would give the die set away.  So, I check and BAM, there was the stamp set.  I laughed so hard because we are all guilty of buying stamps, dies and there tools and forgetting that we even have certain things.

So, I looked at the stamp set and wondered what can I do with this set?  What did I buy it for?  Then it hit me, people live in there RV’s too.  I do have a home stamp.  Now I can enter the challenge!!

Here is my card:

Home

Yeah, I can see a family calling this RV home.  Out in the woods, enjoying nature and not having to worry about anyone bothering them.  Imagine moving your entire home from state to state without having to pack.  I love it!!!

I used these Copic colors to color my RV: YR02, YR04, YR07, R24,N4, N5, BG02, Y15 and Trees: G02, G07

I created a mask to cover the entire card front except the circle.  I used Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue Ink for the sky and Ranger Archival Ink Leaf Green Ink for the grass.

So what do you think?  Can this pass as a home?  Let me know what you think.

  1. Haha! I laughed out loud, too. It happens to me sometimes! I’m so glad you found the stamp set which was waiting for you for a long time. Love your one layer card with all the gorgeous inking and coloring. Thanks so much for playing along with CASology and hope to see you again.

    • Hey May!! Thank you so much for your kind comment. Yes, I need to really start using the things that I buy. I can’t even keep up with an inventory. I’m glad I was able to make it into the challenge this week.

    • Hey Meghan!! Thank you so much for your kind comment. I added that faux stitching at the very last minute. I couldn’t figure out what to add to it and then it came to me. I’m so glad it did.

  2. Kymona, this is awesome! Made me smile ear to ear…LOVE that RV! My hubbie keeps saying he wants to travel the country in an RV when we retire (if that day ever comes)…I’d pick this one! Thanks for playing along again at CASology this week!

    • Hey Judy!! Thank you so much for your wonderful comment. My mom wants an RV so she can travel the world too. I hope one day I can give that to her. The funny thing is, she won’t drive it. She will need a driver too!! I’m glad I found this stamp set so I could play along again this week.
