This is the first project I made on our stamping weekend this past weekend. I just have to share this with you. I was so pleased with how it turned out.
I live right near the beach so had to make a beach house. I have used the Sweet Home Stamp set and the Home Sweet Home Thinlits. What a great versatile bundle it is.
Once I made the house I had to make a matching card. Here are the details.
HOUSE: The roof is in Marina Mist. The house stripes are stamped in Smoky Slate. I coloured the banners with the markers. The surfboard is the oval door stamp and die and I added the hatched line (if that is what you call it). The fin is from one of the banners and I cut that by hand and kind of rounded the points.
CARD: I cut the house out on Whisper White and then trimmed off just the front part of the house. Then stamped the lines in Smoky Slate to match. I stamped another board for the card. The “sand” was a piece of Crumb Cake card that I tore the edge off then inked it with Crumb Cake ink on the edge and in patches. I assembled it all on a piece of Marina Mist card than I stamped the clouds from Sprinkles of Life in White ink.
I debated what else to do. It needed something else but wasn’t sure how to add a greeting. Then I had a thought. I cut the thin door frame from the Thinlits set from Crumb Cake card. The centre piece that is left when you cut it I trimmed off and then stamped the Sentiment which is from Balloon Builder on to that. I sponged these pieces a little too with Crumb Cake ink. I was really pleased with how that worked.
I have plans for more homes. When I get to it. 🙂
Thanks for visiting today. See you again soon,
