Home Again!


Happy Thursday everyone! It's another beautiful day here in VA and we are getting ready to go to our Club's pool for the day. The kids are bringing friends so they won't be hollering or bothering me while I get some reading done. I love to read and have a huge stack of books that have been piling up the last few months, so I have lots to catch up on.

Onto today's project! I must say that I just love, love,love how this turned out. It was very labor intensive, but I adore the end result! This is a new stamp set from PTI called "Boards & Beams" and I just think its so unique. It has 2 houses included, this one and a city townhouse, lots of sentiments and accessories (trees, fences, stone, etc.)--just lovin it! The dark plum paper is new from them too, called plum pudding--it goes so well with their other colors like the spring moss that I used for the card base. I stamped and colored (w/ Copics) everything and then cut them out to figure out how to lay out the card. I added stickles to the trees and diamond glaze to the windows to make them shiny like glass. The background paper behind the house is stamped with a small stamp from PTI's "corners & borders-square" that I inked up with the plum pudding ink and stamped on the cs. I had originally gotten the idea for making this card from the Ismaki challenge website (although I didn't follow their sketch exactly) for a pop up card so I'm going to enter it over there too. The front of the card has PTI's new patterned 6x6 cardstock layered on the front with some more stickled trees and another sentiment. This card works wonderfully for someone who has just moved in, but the stamps are versatile for so many other things too.

Ok, I'm off to finish getting everything ready to go to the pool. Hope everyone has a great day & I'll see ya tomorrow w/ a new project!
