Home Sweet Home

Supplies: Fabulous 6×6 paper pad by Simple Stories, Sweet Christmas + Harold’s Abcs stamp set by Lawn Fawn, vellum paper, Jewels by Doodlebug Designs, Black Opaque – Zing Embossing Powder by American Crafts, Fired Brick – Distress Embossing Powders by Tim Holtz, Versamark pad.

I saw a few weeks ago a video on Two Peas in a Bucket that challenged you to take advantage of your holiday supplies and make a non holiday theme project. Well I had that idea rounding my head and wanted to try to make it, so when I saw my Sweet Christmas stamp set, the idea pop up my head and I knew what I will going to do.

So I stamped the gingerbread house in 3 different pattern papers to make the front, the door and the roof. Then the gingerbread man and women I stamped in several pattern papers to make the skin, dress, pants, shirt, bows.

The same process was with the tree, for more details I cut the windows and put some vellum as glass, some stitching as grass. I think the background pattern paper it was perfect looks like a sky with electricity cables, birds and flowers.

I was forgetting to tell you about the sentiment I embossed it with black embossing powder and with a kind of red distress embossing powder.
I used the half of a phrase of the Sweet Christmas stamp set that says ‘Sweet Christmas’ I utilized only the sweet word. For the Home word I used the Harold’s Abcs stamp set.

As you can see it, definitely it’s like this stamp wasn’t for christmas right?. Now you can look in to you stash and take advantage and make projects.
