Happy New Home

Lots of my friends have moved so I'm in the new house cards zone for the last while, hence my take on the current Muse Card Challenge.  I love Therese's card inspiration for Muse #34. As soon as I saw her little houses, I wanted to get out my Home Sweet Home stamps and dies, but I had to wait until today to play! I've also used twine, white embossing, hearts and reversed the kraft on white colour scheme.

I'm addicted to paint sprays and had to forcibly restrain myself from spraying more. At least it will be a reminder to the new home owner to protect their surfaces lest they get splattered with paint! My houses (especially the middle one) are more muted in real life and I've used an Icicle Promaker to add a little shade and definition to the white embossing. My happy die cut is coloured with Antique Linen distress ink and adhered with microdots.

  2. Super fun card! My fave is definitely the middle house, it's so colourful, and my thoughts are if you *want* to spatter then you should spatter, Love it!

  4. This is so cute! Love the houses embossed on patterned paper.. fab design, too. :) Thanks for joining us in the 'Emboss It!' challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

  5. This card is so unique and beautiful! I really loved how you reversed the elements and made the houses pop. They are adorable and the twine was the perfect accent to finish it off. You've got a great eye for art and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!
