A little venture in paper piecing and spotlighting today. Another inspiration card for you using the wonderful little houses from STAMPlorations The Bee's Knees Houses. But this time instead of masking them to create a village, like you might remember here, I chose to spotlight one house.
I put three houses onto my acrylic block and stamped them onto my cardbase. Then I stamped them again onto another piece of CS and die cut the tag from it.
Since this was a housewarming card for my cousin who is a MSU fan and MSU colors are green and white, I had to paper piece the house with green paper. I stamped and fussy cut a couple times - the glow in several windows, the roof, the door - then adhered everything to the house on the tag.
Then I grounded all the houses with a strip of grass using American Crafts glitter washi tape. I added some to the tag too, trimming it to fit the curves.
Then I added the family's initial (in UofM colors cuz I'm a UofM fan!) on a tiny tag, used a wisp of twine to attach the two tags and popped the tag up on dimensional adhesive. A couple clouds in the sky completed my spotlight neighborhood scene.
