Happy Scenes with Hearth & Home Thinlits

Ever since I laid eyes on the new Holiday Catalogue, I've been dying to play with this bundle - Happy Scenes and the Hearth & Home Thinlit dies! I'm finally getting the chance today and my first project turned out just the way I imagined it would! First of all, this set means these dies and stamps are good for many seasons, not just fall and winter. Just think of all the scenes you could create through the window! Sheltering Tree would look awesome! Lovely as a Tree! Wonderland! White Christmas! Talented Trio! Even No Bones About It with the dinosaurs, if you were being funny! And that just names a few! I intend to have no end of fun with these thinlits and I hope you will join me!

The Happy Scenes bundle (where you buy two or more coordinating products together and save 15%) is one of seventeen in the Holiday Catalogue!! When I am finished looking at the card, I will list them all for you.

  • The Tangerine Tango card base and the Early Espresso backing work with the woodgrained house walls to give a log cabin feel.  I actually first embossed the Tip Top Taupe cardstock with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and then embossed it a second time with the Brick Wall Embossing folder to get the log look here. You have to do it in that order. If you emboss first with the Brick Wall , when you re-emboss with the Woodgrain  folder, all the bricks get lost in the wood grain.
  • I used one of the images from Happy Scenes. Using the Basic Black Archival ink, I stamped it on Whisper White and then water coloured the sky and the ground with Aqua Painters using a variety of colours: Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Tip Top Taupe. The leaves and pumpkins I coloured with Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie and Tangelo Twist Stampin' Write Markers.
  • The sentiment, from the same stamp set is embossed in Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder on the separate window box portion of the Hearth & Home Thinlits. One of the Into the Woods Elements embellishes it with some Gold 1/8" Ribbon.
We're making this card at my Technique Night classes tonight and tomorrrow.
