From our home to yours

October 8, 2018

This is another card I made using the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set and the co-ordinating Farmhouse Framelits Dies.  I stamped the trees from the Lovely As A Tree stamp set across Whisper White card using Shaded Spruce ink.  I masked the “sky” and  also a little path and dabbed Shaded Spruce ink across the Whisper White card to represent grass.  I removed the masks and sponged some Crumb Cake ink to represent the pathway.   I masked the “grass” and dabbed Balmy Blue ink across the sky.  I stamped the house image from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink I stamped the “bauble” image from the same stamp set across the verandah and the top floor of the house also using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.   I coloured the house and the baubles using Smoky Slate and Real Red Stampin Blends.  I attached the house image over the stamped and sponged background.  I cut two pieces of Whisper White card using the fence die from the Farmhouse Framelits Dies. The fence pieces are attached either side of the pathway.  I attached the stamped panel to Shaded Spruce card and then Whisper White card.  I stamped the greeting from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of the Whisper White card before attaching the panel to scored and folded Gray Granite card.  I stamped the wreath image from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set onto Whisper White card and coloured the image using the Shaded Spruce and Real Red Stampin’ Blends.  I cut out the image using the co-ordinating Farmhouse Framelits Die and attached the wreath to the house.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the greeting from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set onto Whisper White card using Shaded Spruce ink.  I stamped the greeting once more onto scrap Whisper White card using Real Red ink and cut out the “Merry Christmas” using the frame from the Farmhouse Framelits Dies.  I attached the “Merry Christmas” banner over the stamped image.

I really enjoyed making this card, it was fun to build up the scene to create a somewhat different Christmas card.  I am beginning to think that I like this stamp set and co-ordinating dies because the fence die reminds me of the picket fence we had on our front yard when I was growing up!

Bye for now,

Kris

    Really nice Kris. Sometimes it is realistic for us not to have snow related cards.

    Thanks Shirley, glad you liked it. I think this set has great potential for “hot summer” Christmas cards.
