INSPIRATION CHALLENGE #269

Aren't these the happiest houses? They are happy because my deployed Marine son is coming home from Afghanistan in just a couple months. Yay.


I played in today's INSPIRATION CHALLENGE ...ROOMS BY ZOYA B on SCS. My inspiration was THIS piece of fabric.


I used TABS & TAGS stamp set, TABS & TAGS DIE SET and NICE NEIGHBORHOOD from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.


I stamped my houses on white CS, colored simply, dotted with white gel pen and cut out. Then adhered to the black panel after I cut it with pinking scissors. I trimmed off the excess of the houses that hung over the edge lining up the pinking scissors. I then rubbed my panel with the embossing buddy, stamped happy covering with white embossing powder as I went then heat embossed. Then I embossed it using a large embossing folder. Then I cut out my tab die, stamped my sentiment, dry embossed and adhered with brads. Popped up with dots and Voila. Happy Houses.
