New Home Cards!

TWO colleagues of mine moved into their first homes with their respective partners last weekend! I decided to create them cards to celebrate the joys of their first mortgages!!

Unfortunatley my photographs are a bit dark!!!

I used the Waltzingmouse Stamps set ‘A Cottage Home‘ to stamp the house, porch and topiary pots. I coloured everything in using my Promarkers. The roof is ‘Cornflower’, the windows and door are ‘Sky Blue’, the walls & chimneys are ‘Cool Grey 1, 2, 3 and 4’, the window glass is ‘Tea Green’, the facia is ‘Sky Blue’ and ‘Powder Blue’, the lights are ‘Soft lime’. The topiary is ‘Grass’, ‘Leaf Green’, ‘Forest Green’ and ‘Pine’, the trunk is ‘Walnut’ and the terracotta pot is ‘Terracotta’ and ‘Chestnut’. The garden path is ‘Honeycomb’ and ‘Apricot’ and the grass is ‘Grass’ and ‘Lush Green’.


For the sentiment I used the Waltzingmouse ‘Gift Card It‘ set & stamped the sentiments straight onto the textured card base. I fussy cut the house, porch and topiaries. I attached the porch to the house with foam dimetnional stickers, I attached the house to the card base with roll-on glue and attached the topiaries either side using dimentional foam pads.
