Happy New House

 Today's card is a quick one I made for a friend and her family when they recently moved into a new house.  I just love how all of these designer papers work together.  They are all from the Welcome Neighbor 6x6 pack that was free during Sale-A-Bration this year.  The stamp set Good Neighbors was also free during Sale-A-Bration.

  I used the Big Shot and the Top Note die along with the DSP for the layer behind the house.  It's really easy to just adhere the paper to the cardstock and then run it all through the Big Shot.  I tied a piece of the new Old Olive 3/8" taffeta ribbon around it and made a knot.

  The stamping is straight forward; The house was stamped in More Mustard and Rose Red.  It's really easy to line these stamps up using the clear blocks, you can see right where you want to stamp.  The tree is stamped in Old Olive and I used my Rose Red marker to color in some of the "leaves" to look like apples.  The clouds are stamped with Baja Breeze.  I used a quick sticky note mask to get one of the clouds behind the other.  I punched the whole scene out with the new large Scallop Circle punch and then sponged the edges with Baja Breeze ink.  The whole Top Note shape is of course popped up on dimensionals.

  Thanks for looking!  Happy Stamping!
