Hi everyone! I’m very excited to be part of the Save The Crafty YouTuber hop this year! A big thank you to Justine Hovey for organizing the hop! And of course to all the sponsors who made it possible for us to also give away prizes! For the hop, I have created a new house card with the Build-A-House die from Lawn Fawn. Don’t forget to check out the video on YouTube and see who else is participating in the hop.
For the card making process, check out my video below or hop over to my channel. If you like watching my video’s, do not forget to subscribe. And as mentioned in the intro, we have some prizes to give away!
First I started working on the background by blending Distress Oxide ink Dried Marigold on the MFT Cloud stencil. In the latest Lawn Fawn release, they also released their own Cloudy stencil if you want to check it out. The grass I die cut from Cilantro cardstock with a grass die. To give the grass more texture, I ink blended Distress Oxide ink Mowed Lawn only at the top, and also created splatters with a brush. To create the bushes, I used the Puffy Cloudy Border die with the Fall Fling cardstock.
For the house itself, I die cut all the elements with from Lawn Fawn cardstock: Fog, Chili Pepper, Sticky Note. Almost all elements are from the main Build-A-House die, just the door is from the Christmas add-on. After all elements were die cut, I assembled the house and added highlights with a white gel pen.
As in The Netherlands we have the saying ‘House, Tree, Animal’ (Huisje, Boompje, Beestje), I wanted to add additional elements to the card to go with the saying. The tree and apples are from the ‘Tree Before ‘n After‘ stamp set, and the butterfly is from ‘Butterfly Kisses‘. I stamped them on copic friendly cardstock and colored them with copic markers.
Now all elements were ready, I could assemble the card. To frame the scene, I created a border from Sunflower cardstock. For some final touches, I added Glossy Accents on the apples to make them look nicely round and juicy.
I hope you like these card and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!
