New Beginnings at CraftyCardmakers.

Evening Everyone,
We have a new challenge starting today over at CCM, and some wonderful new Teamies as well.
As it is the first challenge of 2017, we have an appropriately themed 'New Beginnings', so we would like to see your creations related to the arrival of a new baby, a new relationship, marriage, engagement, maybe even a New Years resolution.......anything new.
I decided to go with New Home.
I have two old friends who have recently moved after many years in their family homes, so this was the perfect challenge for me.
I have used a lovely Magnolia stamped scene Y0056 Welcome to a Lovely Home stamped and embossed onto watercolour card, and then coloured using Distress Inks.
The background has been created using an embossing folder that looks like a plank of wood.........very appropriate.
I added some Wink of Stella to the sky although it doesn't show up very well.
The sentiment is from a very useful Hobby Art CS016D Greetings stamp set.
I made two cards the same apart from the colouring on the panel.
I hope that you will join in with us over the next fortnight with your 'New Beginnings', and don't forget to stop by and show the new team some love.
Thanks for visiting.
Hugs Kimx


  1. Lovely New Home card, Kim.
    A great image and nicely coloured too. This will be loved by the recipients.

  2. Hi Kim, love your new beginnings card. The new house card is so cleverly done. The stamp is fabulously wonky and the embossed background is perfect for it. Love it!

  3. Fab New Home card and love the embossed background very effective, looking forward to joining you as part of the CCM team xx

  4. A wonderful New Home card Kim. I love your image and the wood effect background goes perfectly with the fence. Sally.x.
