We are home! I think I mentioned that we were headed for our kids first trip to Disney World, and we made it through the 4 hour car ride with only one incident of "pulling over on the side of the highway for a spanking". Actually, it was a great trip and all in all the 2 hours there and 2 hours back went really well.
I have been saving this project for weeks. This was my contribution to a swap with Jami at Splitcoaststampers and she asks that we wait until the packages have all been swapped out before sharing them.
I used the little house and sentiment from the Stampin Up! set, To You and Yours, and also added the Canvas background stamp. I used the big Shot Top Note Die. I love this die! At first I didn't think there would be to many options with it for cards but was I wrong! The house was simply stamped on the die in Chocolate Chip and colored with pastels. Then I used the Chocolate Chip to do some DTP along the edges (for a distressed look). In addition I pulled out my color spritzer tool and my Chocolate Chip marker to give it more of a distressed look. I covered the die with Versa Mark and Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder as well, punched a horizontal slot and threaded some Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon through. What do you think?
