My mojo has sort of flown out the window this week. So what better way to light that spark of imagination than to participate in a Mojo Monday challenge.
I stamped the house images from the Sending Holiday Cheer on Stampin' Up Whisper White cardstock and on various patterned papers from the Echo Park Very Merry Christmas 6x6 paper pack.
I fussy cut select parts from each color.
I paper pieced each house.
Using a Sakura White gel pen, I added the window details. I used the Red and Lime Stardust pens to color the lights along the top of the green house, and bow and wreath on the doors.
I fussy cut each house out from the white paper.
Using the Spellbinders Classic Circle, I cut a piece of Whisper White. Using the Scallop Circle dies, I cut a piece of patterned paper. I inked the white circle using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I adhered these together.
I attached the houses in the back directly to the circle and used dimensional adhesive to attache the smaller house in the front.
To mimic snow, I added Marvey Liquid Applique to the roof of each house as well as to the base of each, forming "snow drifts." I sprinkled glitter diamond glitter on the Liquid Applique before heating with my heat tool.
I added this to my card base using dimensional adhesive. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I stamped it, matted it and attached with dimensional adhesives. I ink a couple of chipboard snowflakes from Maya Road with white pigment ink. I added the diamond glitter and attached them to the from of the card as well.
I had so much fun making this card. I stared at 10:00 a.m. and next thing I knew it was 1:30. Took quite a bit of time, but well worth it.
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,
