Cozy Cottage…..

December 28, 2017

…is a new Hostess stamp set in the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  As part of my pre-order I was able to earn this stamp set and I have been having a lovely time colouring in this gorgeous cottage.  This is the first actual card I have created using this stamp set.  I stamped the greeting from Colourful Seasons onto Pool Party card using Early Espresso ink and attached it to Whisper White card.  I embossed the Whisper White/Pool Party card using the Basic Polka Dot Embossing FolderI cut a piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper and attached it to the left hand side of the embossed card before attaching to scored and folded Pool Party card.  I stamped the cottage image from the Cozy Cottage stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured in the image using Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Ivory, Bronze, Smoky Slate and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends.  I cut out the image using one of the Layering Oval Framelits Dies and attached it to a Smoky Slate scalloped oval cut using the same Dies.  The image is attached to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the chair image from the Cozy Cottage stamp set onto the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the image using Crumb Cake and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.

I love this card, so peaceful and serene, don’t you think?  Of course I also love the Stampin’ Blends, they make it so easy to create a beautifully coloured scene to add to our cards or for that matter anything we might be creating with paper.

I’d love to hear what you think.

Bye for now,
