Home Sweet Home....

I finally received my Waltzingmouse Stamps in the mail yesterday and of course I inked them up
immediately..... I want to have fun like the rest of
the Design Team!

I received the set Sewing Box - Hugs and decided to make a card with a frame of sorts.

I stamped the house onto Rustic cream cardstock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and coloured it with copics.

I added some Zva Crystal gems to the windows and highlighted them with a gold Copic spica pen, hoping they would look like candles that had
been lit and make it all comfy and cozy (how'd I do?.....)

I didn't colour the door because honestly, I didn't really know what colour to make it! That is so true......if I went with blue - it would be too much, if I coloured it green - I don't know..... green didn't seem like it at the time, but now it looks like it woul
d have worked....oh my.....light brown may have done it too.....decisions, decisions......any suggestions? (Hey, I know I should be the one that can figure out what colour a door should be, but today I just can't lol!)

I love the new Basic Grey Nook & Pantry, it is so homey feeling, so I used a sheet of it from a 6 x 6 paper pad for my frame and background.

Using my square nestabilities I was able to cut squares from the middle of my measured piece of Nook & Pantry designer paper and Ocean Tides cardstock.

I glued those pieces together and then added dimensional foam tape to the back of the "frame" and added it to the cardbase that already had been p
repared with the sweet little home image.

Using the Spellbinders Fancy Tags I stamped the sentiment and popped the tag up onto the bottom of the card.

I added a bit of Vintage Cream ribbon with a button tied with coloured twine to finish it off!

This set, along with two other gorgeous sets have been released already at Waltzingmouse Stamps. One of the stamp sets is a TOP SECRET and you even need a secret password to enter the secret blog to see the secret set! How secretly FUN is that?!

I'm off to a craft show today to spy to see how people set up their tables and to probably to buy stuff! yay!
