One Card Wonder Wednesday, November 6, 2019 - From Our House To Yours

Hello!

Hey there!  Are you ready for Yesterday''s One Card Wonder Wednesday?  I am!   I apologize for being a day late with my blog post but sometimes life throws you curve balls and that is what happened to me yesterday.  I was able to do my video last night though...I got home 15 minutes before the video needed to start and I was ready in 13 minute, whew!  (The card was already designed and pieces cut, I'm not superwoman, LOL❗)

I fell in love with the From Our House To Yours Stamp Set the first time I saw it in the catalog.  And frankly, I knew I was going to buy it, use it, and probably never get rid of it.  It's a keeper!
Stamp "building" these little houses is a lot of fun!  You get to choose the colors you want to make your houses unique!  I think this stamp set would be perfect for younger stampers too as they could create a landscape pic of their neighborhood.  How fun would that be for them?



Isn't this just the cutest?  With the little houses Dimensionaled up on the card to give it depth.  And all of the little details that make it so pretty - the pine tree in the center of the neighborhood with a heart on top, the Ice Stampin' glitter and Snowflake Sequins that give the card sparkle.  Plus the Love being sent from one house to the next.  I love that little heart trail!  



 Up close and personal, look at the little doors!  There are three different doors you can add to your houses!  I used two of them.  Just imagine the colors your neighborhood card could be?  The possibilities are endless.



I am just so excited by how cute these cards turned out.  I have a feeling I will be making a lot of these cards in the future.  How about You?  Just head over to my store and buy the supplies for yourself!  I am positive you will love this set as much as I do! 😊

Measurements & Instructions
  1. Cut a piece of Pear Pizzazz Card Stock  4 1/4in. x 11in. and score at 5 1/2in.
  2. Cut two pieces of Whisper White Card Stock 4in. x 5 1/4in.
  3. On a scrap piece of Whisper White Card Stock stamp four houses and roofs, using various colors of ink.  I used Night of Navy, Bermuda Bay, Pear Pizzazz.
  4. Then stamp the doors on your houses in your preferred ink colors.  I used Early Espresso and Real Red.
  5. Fussy cut your houses out and lay onto one of your Whisper White Card Stock pieces where you want them to be, but don't adhere them yet.
  6. While the houses are there, stamp the "mushroom" trees around them in Early Espresso Ink.
  7. Then stamp the Pine tree in the center of the neighborhood in Pear Pizzazz Ink, adding a stamped Real Red heart at the top of the tree.
  8. In Bermuda Bay Ink stamp the snow drifts in front of the houses.
  9. In Basic Gray Ink stamp the smoke plumes coming from he chimneys.
  10. In Real Red Ink stamp the heart with the dotted trail from the top right house to the top left house.
  11. Now remove your houses from the scene and lightly sponge Balmy Blue Ink to the top half of the card to create sky.
  12. Then in Balmy Blue Ink stamp the snowflakes to create a wintry sky.
  13. Adhere your scene, minus houses, onto the front of the card base using Snail Adhesive.
  14. Using Shimmery Crystal Effects, trace a thin line underneath all four of the snow drifts that you stamped in Bermuda Bay Ink.  Then sprinkle with Ice Stampin' Glitter.  Also add a few dots of Shimmery Crystal Effects to the wintry sky as as well and sprinkle again with the Ice Stampin' Glitter.
  15. Embellish with Snowflake Sequins.
  16. Adhere your houses to the front of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  17. One your second piece of Whisper White Card Stock, in Real Red Ink, stamp a heart in the lower left hand corner and in the center stamp the sentiment "WHEREVER WE WANDER, wherever we roam, AT  CHRISTMASTIME, our hearts come home."   Then adhere to the inside of the card using Snail Adhesive or Tombow Multipurpose Glue.  Voila!
