My lovely friend moved house last week which was really sad as she is now in another town and her children now go to another school. I'm sure we will stay in touch but it was sad all the same. No more playground chats !!
Anyway, of course I had to make her a card to take with her and when I saw these stamps from STAMPlorations, I knew they would be perfect.
I had seen a card made by Maria (rieslingmama) (I adore her cards !), where she had used the houses as a background and I really wanted to try this for myself.
I started off by stamping one house in red and then a lot of masking was involved to create the rest of the background. I then stamped an extra red house, fussy cut it out and then added over the top of the stamped red house with foam tabs.
Three hearts were punched, had generous amounts of clear Wink of Stella applied and then were added to the card again using foam tabs.
I am entering this into the Addicted to CAS Challenge which is "Masking" and also the STAMPlorations Monthly Challenge which is "Stamps and Hearts".
I'll be back tomorrow with the new challenge from Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
I'm really busy at the moment making lots and lots of cards some of which will be shown in due course and some are for Cardmaking and Papercraft which you will be able to see in a few months time ! The girls are also home for half term so I'm finding blogging time short.
Enjoy the sunshine !
