There's No Place Like Home

Here's my card for the current SugarPea Designs Sugar Sketch Challenge.  I flipped the layout on its side to showcase the fabulous Home die cut.

There's No Place Like Home card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from SugarPea Designs
I used the inlaid die cutting technique on an aqua cardstock panel.  The negative space was filled in with a pale gray die cut.  I stamped the "there's no place like" sentiment from the companion Sweet Sentiments-Home set just above the word in gray pigment ink. 

After rounding the panel's corner, I adhered it to a pale gray cardstock panel over a piece of heart patterned paper.  I tucked a pair of coordinating fishtail flag strips underneath the bottom of the die cut panel, then added a small sun, fashioned from more die cut pieces, to the top.  The finished panel was adhered to an aqua card base.

Materials Used:
Sweet Sentiments-Home stamp set, Home Sweet Home die (SugarPea Designs); Memento Luxe Gray Flannel ink (IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko); Aqua Mist and Orange Zest cardstock, Orange Zest patterned paper (Papertrey Ink); Grout Gray cardstock (My Favorite Things); Something Wonderful 6x6 paper pad (Teresa Collins); pinking circle die (Spellbinders); circle punch (EK Success); corner rounder; foam tape


  1. WOW this is awesome Lori. Love how you imbedded the HOME die. You rocked the SugarPea Designs Sketch. So happy you played.
