Happy Neighborhood

So, what did you think of Emily's release yesterday? Pretty awesome eh! It didn't take me long to fill my cart, it was overflowing with all the new and some older images! Can't wait to get them.

I was asked to make a card for a house warming.  I don't have much in the line of houses, but I did have this funky  house stamp from Stamping Bella called Happy Neighborhood

I came across this paper once I decided on the stamp I was going to use. The designer paper is by Imaginisce - Happy Camper. The trees are all glossed - so pretty.  I just love the colours in it as well- brown, green and teal tones - perfect. So I began by stamping the houses on bella's bestest paper then proceeded to colour using copics and pencils.  I cut the houses out using labels 14, and then the teal layer was cut with labels 20.  I ran the brown c/s through the cuttlebug using a sizzix embossing folder. Tied a piece of twill around the card to finish it off.  Card measures 5x 7.  I rented a stamp from Paper Pickle for the inside sentiment - it say's : Wishing you Warmth and Happiness in your new home.

Hope you get a chance to play in our challenge this week.  Do you have a favourite Stamping Bella image? well that's all it takes.  Colour it up and email Emily by Thursday night for a chance to win some bella bucks.

I'll see you back here on Friday.  See you then,

ok, this is kinda funny. We are on the same wave length...because I colored this up and made a card earlier this week. I showed it to Jordan last night and asked...what should I put in the way of a sentiment. I pulled it outta my stash of images I have not seen in a while. {long time!} Now here you did it also! how crazy, eh? LOVE it Pauline...and I didn't have any fancy dies to use.
