STAMPlorations sketch #26


There's a new neighbor in my parents' hood. Actually the daughter of the original builder/owner has decided to make it her retirement home. So happy for her and her hubby. And for my folks. Now there is someone else living along the beach year round.

And there's a new sketch up at STAMPlorations.

So I grabbed my cute little houses from Shirley's The Bees Knees: Houses and created a hood.


Know how I made the grass? With the roof of one of the house stamps (one I didn't stamp on the card)! Got some new Memento Luxe and Radiant Neon inks to play with (on sale for around €3 at Scrapmalin for any of you on this side of the pond) and voila!

For my sentiment I hung a vellum banner with alpha stickers and a PC-generated secondary sentiment with some stitching. Put a strip of cheery washi along the bottom of the inside of the card (a la Kate). Easy peasy, as they say! And a great idea for using up some of your washi stash. I'm hooking up at Challenge up your Life #6.

And since my world consists of life here in Germany and life back in Michigan, I'm hooking up to Addicted to CAS #50.


This is a great sketch, even rotated :) Won't you join us for the challenge? Check out the cards from the DT and our guest designer, Maria, at the STAMPlorations blog.
