I visited my downline and friend, Katy, today and had a lovely time. She has moved to the Barossa and into a gorgeous home, so much character and love in that house! I wanted to make a card for her and her family to celebrate them moving into their home and here it is ….
I stamped the house image in Old Olive on the Top Note die cut, then again on a scrap of Very Vanilla using Chocolate Chip so that I could cut out the chocolate house and mount it over the green house (mmm, chocolate house!! LOL!) I got that idea from page 54 of the IB&C where the ‘Welcome Home’ stamp set is pictured and I also did that for our housewarming invites – very cute and not too difficult to replicate en masse! The sentiment is actually one line of one of the stamps from the ‘Sweet Little Sentiments’ stamp set (Level 1 Hostess Set) – so handy being able to ‘select’ the text you want with a marker 😉 The flowers are made with the leaf from the XL 2-step bird punch, flowers from Trio Flower punch and finished off with the little rhinestones I popped out of the small Crystal brads.
I have to say the drive up and back was very peaceful (sleeping baby in the back, Robbie CD playing, coffee to drink……) and it got me all inspired, there were so many beautiful colours in the vineyards and orchards …. lots of Really Rust, Pumpkin Pie and Summer Sun leaves around …. what a lovely way to finish Autumn!
