Congratulations on your new home cards

It seems like with this time of lower interest rates, a lot of people are moving into new homes. I recently went to Tennessee to help my daughter move into her new home. Clayton was so happy that he now has a fenced in backyard, as he loves to play outside!
 I took a few snaps inside the house and outside.



One of the gifts I like to give someone when they move into a new home is a set of notecards announcing their new address. I work from one of my photographs and create a watercolor image of the house.
I scan the image and print them to use on the cards.
 I was so happy to find that Quietfire has come out with a Home-Congratulations stamp set that is absolutely perfect to use on my cards. Below, you can see how I put the house stamp into use both on the envelope and inside amongst the computer generated text.


I love the warmth the gold gives inside! I love this set so much that I am featuring it on my next Guest Designer posting on the Quietfire Blog on June 21. It will include other projects where I have used this most versatile stamp set!
I recently made a set of cards for my friend Yunetta for her new home and am even hoping to move myself!
Even if you don't do personalized watercolor notecards, I am sure that you would find the new stamp set from Quietfire very handy to use! Be sure to check out the blog there!

Love your house! I am currently looking to relocate to TN from NJ for work and I'm looking around for houses. I'm very environmentally conscious and I've heard that there are many available solar homes in Tennessee. I also wouldn't mind renovating a home myself in order to implement green technology.

WOW! I don't come by for waaaay too long and when I do, I see AMAZING proof that you are indeed an incredible artist. Yes, the Quietfire stamps add so much to your creation, but your watercolor is the star. nise
