New Home

Hi Crafters,

This post is being blown to you from a very windy Norfolk today.
I have a New Home card to share with you all today created using a rather lovely stamp from Inkylicious.

Sentiment Stamp - Inkylicious - New Home
Black Embossing Powder
House Dies - CraftEmotions
Distress Inks

I began by inking some white card with a range of blue Distress Inks until I had the sky how I liked it. Then I stamped and heat embossed the large sentiment and added the house die cuts in a row popping the red one up on foam pads for a little definition.
A quick and easy make this time.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Aud Sentiments - #147 ATG
Winter Wonderland - Something New - New Home
Creative Fingers - #101 ATG
One Crazy Stamper - January Challenge ATG
Crafty Calendar Challenge - Something New - New Home
Incy Wincy Designs - Tic Tac Toe (Embossing, Red, Die Cut)
Crafty Cardmakers - #156 Punches +/ Dies

Well we are at the middle of the week, it is down hill from here, hope you have a good Wednesday!
