Home Sweet Home

Morning my crafty friends. Today I want to share with you something that I was completely inspired by yesterday. And I can happily share it with you for my Quixotic Paperie DT day!

I have had this house stamp from Christy Croll for ages and have just been waiting to be inspired to use it! I was browsing through the mega talented Linda Heaven's blog and she had created a fantastic card with it for a class she was doing. I was so totally in love with it!  I was going to link you to it, but her post has disappeared :(( So thank you Linda for the wonderful inspiration. If I ever get the chance to link to her card I will because the credit for this idea goes to her.


 I used a canvas board that I got from Simply Create. I then painted the sky with blue acrylic paints and the ground with green. Whilst that was drying I stamped the Christy Croll house several times and inked with Distress Inks: Fired Brick, Frayed Burlap and Wild honey. i cut out the pieces I needed and stuck onto the canvas board. The clouds are die cuts and the sentiment is computer generated.. To create the mottled grass effect I used tissue paper scrunched up and inked it up and then dabbed it randomly to create some texture. Then there is some random stamping around the edges with different background stamps.


Thank for your visit today!

Please let me know if you have this stamp and I would love to come see what you have created with it!

have a great weekend !

the tissue paper technique is so effective & I love your background stamping. Finally I am gathering some background stamps to start using. The little butterfly is quite delightful & I love the way that orange pops against both the green grass & the blue sky.
Have a lovely weekend.
