Happy Saturday! Today I'm sharing a short and long slimline home sweet home card featuring the July 2020 Simon Says Stamp Card Kit, Home Sweet Home. The fantastic long image from the Home Sweet Home stamp set lends itself perfectly to a long skinny card. I'm sharing how I stamped these images and colored them in with Copic Markers in my video tutorial. As always, finishing details are key. I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Bilzzard, Glossy Accents, and a white pen. Let's get started!

Images from the Home Sweet Home stamp set were stamped on the panel with Hero Arts Intens-ified Ink. A bit of simple masking was done for a couple of the images but it was minimal. The masks were removed and some tape was used to mask off the four sides of the panel from the stitching line out. This is one of my favorite hacks to make a one layer card appear to be "layered" on another piece of cardstock.
The images and background were colored in with the following Copic Marker color combinations:
- Sky: B12, B14, B16
- Road: C4, C5, C7, Colorless Blender
- Clouds: B000, B01, Colorless Blender
- Sun: Y08, Y15, Y19
- Airplane & banner: R24, R29, R39, BG32, BG34, BG45, C5, C7
- Red building: R24, R29, R39, C5, C7, B000, B01
- Orange house: YR04, YR09, R29, B000, B01, C5, C7
- Yellow house: Y08,Y15, 119, B000, B01, C5, C7, R29
- Purple house: B63, B66, B000, B01, C5, C7, RV63, RV55, R24, YR04, YG13, BG45, B16
- Trees: B21, B28, YG13, YG17
The masking tape was removed once the coloring was finished.
A greeting from the Home Sweet Home stamp set was stamped in the lower right cover of the finished card with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
Glossy Accents was added to the sun, windows, clock, airplane wheel, and heart. Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard was added to the clouds. White pen detail was added throughout the design.
A card base was created from the Smoke Cardstock included in the kit. The cardstock was trimmed to 7" x 8 1/2" and scored along the 7" side at 3 1/2". The stamped and colored panel was adhered to the front of the card.
An additional sentiment from the Home Sweet Home stamp set was stamped inside the card with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder to finish the design.
