Each blog will have the birdcage logo and at the end of the post you'll see a link to the next blog on the hop - eventually you'll come back full circle to the blog you started with. I hope you enjoy the journey! It would be lovely to hear what you think of our creations so if you can, please leave a comment when you visit.
For those of you who have joined me from Hayley, welcome!
I made two samples for this hop - although I could have kept going cos there are SO many possibilities with this Good Neighbors set. There are three little house stamps along with three different roofs that you can mix and match to make endless little houses! There are also three cute trees as well.
For this card I followed the colour challenge at SCS this week: Barely Banana, Really Rust and Basic Grey. The background paper is from the GORGEOUS Nouveau Chic paper pack. I stamped the larger house in Basic Grey and coloured it in with a Barely Banana marker. I added a roof with Really Rust ink then outlined it with a black marker. The other house was stamped with Really Rust then the roof added in Basic Grey (you simply HAVE to have a Stamp-a-ma-jig to use this set properly!!). I stamped some clouds in Basic Grey and added piercing around the edge of the Whisper White piece. The houses were cut out and popped up with dimensionals.
The greeting is from Love You Much and I punched it out using the Word Window punch and layered on a Basic Grey oval. I added silver brads either side of the greeting. I stamped the trees along the bottom of the Really Rust strip and added some Really Rust buttons. I added 'thread' through the middle of the buttons using a thin strip of Barely Banana cardstock. The Barely Banana strip was punched with the eyelet border punch.
Here's the recipe:

Here's my second sample using the same set:
I actually made 36 of these over Christmas Day and Boxing Day while I was at my husband's parents' house! Let's just say I spent some quality time with my Stamp-a-ma-jig!!! Thanks so much to Jane who lent me her New Year's Celebration stamp so I could make these!
