Empty Box Project #6 - New Home

This is one of three 'new home' cards I have made lately. Lots of people on the move!

The house is an SVG from Miss Kate's Cuttables and the leaf and fence were also cut on the Silhouette. The circular stamp was a cover gift with the Docrafts Creativity magazine. I bought it on Saturday and couldn't wait to use it - I think I'll use it a lot.

I  punched a lace effect edge and stamped the card behind with a stamp from my 'empty box project' box. This stamp is a big background stamp by Hero Arts. I received it, from an online retailer but it was not the one I'd ordered. As there were a series of problems with getting my order, the retailer refunded me and told me to keep this stamp.

On New Year's day I revealed my stamping shame - a big box of unused stamps - and started my Empty Box project. My aim is to work through the box , one stamp/ stamp set at a time and see if I can use them. If I can't use them, I will dispose of them. The aim is to finish with an empty box.

Thanks for all the positive comments I've had about my project. It seems  my stamping shame is not unique!

I look forward to these posts, so far I have seen you use some stamps I haven't used yet either. But this circular one is from a magazine I don't have, and I can understand why you wanted to use it straight away. It makes your card less CAS, but it's still simple and very decorative.
