Home Sweet Home

Good morning everyone!

It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin' today
and it's also my final day as a guest designer...

I have really enjoyed the challenges this month and I'd like to thank all the Sweet Stampin' girls for making me feel so welcome :)

The challenge this week is 'scallops'


For this card I used the new Echo Park 'So happy together' paper pad
and the Dots & Stripes 'Soda fountain' essentials collection.
The image is from Squiggle Stamps coloured with Copics and the sentiment is a Kaisercraft stamp.
I doodled faux stitching around the squares with a Sigma Micron 02 black pen.

After making the card I realised that the roof of the house has scallops!
It wasn't intentional though lol.

Copic colours used - Yellows: Y21,Y17         Greens: G00,G21      Blues: B02,BG05
Pinks/Reds: RV10,R32,R35     Background: BG10       Blender: 0

I pierced 4 holes through the gingham ribbon and spotty paper and then added white brads to hold the ribbon in place.

There are some wonderful prizes to be won so click here for some inspiration and to link up your project.  Don't forget to include some stamping!

Thanks for stopping by today and a big hello to my new followers.
You're very welcome!
I'll have more projects to share soon and I'm going to introduce you to the newest member of our family......to those who know me ~ don't faint with shock when you see him! lol

Such a sweet little house and I love the way the scallops go with the scalloped edge even if it was accidental! Who is this newest member of the family...? Vicky x
