When I first saw Grandma’s House stamp set in the Annual Catalog, I knew it would be perfect for me. Why? Because the images are small enough for me to feel successful coloring. I am still a “work in progress” on my coloring skills. I love to color but still feel like I can’t quite get the shading right. I saw a card very similar on the Stampin’ Up! site and thought I can do this! My sister and Brother-in-law just moved into a new condo, so this stamp set would be great to use. My BIL now works at the Pentagon. WHAT? Yes, he does! Which is why they moved. Not sure of his position, but do know that he is super, super smart.
I started off with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ Thick Whisper White cardstock, scored at 5 1/2″. Next layer is 4″ x 5 1/4″ Whisper White. I used the largest Stitched Shape Circle die to cut out the window. Then I marked where the cut out was at on the card base and sponged Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay in the circle. I stamped the sentiment from the Delightful Day stamp set in Memento Black Ink.
Then I stamped the house onto Shimmer White cardstock and colored in with my Stampin’ Blends. I pretty much colored it like the SU card, so my shadows don’t look too bad. I’ll list the colors I used below. Once it was colored I cut it out. I put Dimensionals on the back and also on the top layer. That piece went down first, and then I tucked the sides (where the grass is) behind the circle just a little.
I added the 3 of the Frosted Flower Embellishments to the “sky” and added a double Linen Thread bow.
