New Home

Oh boy have I had fun !!!
I should warn you keep scrolling down there are lots of photos !
My God-daughters and their family have just moved house.
Well they are renovating a house so are in a caravan at the moment !
So ..... I thought this weeks Polka Doodles challenge New Home was fitting for them
when they finally move out of the garden and into the house !!
I made a Box and a card !

First the card ..... 
I used the Stampies from the CD All Around and Everywhere.
Both the houses and tree Stampies.
To make them large enough to make a card with I enlarged 
the view on them and used the printing option of current view.

I used double sided foam to give dimension, 
I also cut out doors and window boxes to help the dimension.
Of course I had to glitter it up using my Stickles !
The doors, roofs, window boxes and bits of the trees all got glittered !
The fence is a Marianne die.
I basically layered all of these onto a rectangle card!

Secondly I made a box ! 

Again I used the CD All around and Everywhere for the images.
The paper I used from the CD Picknix 1.
I just love how the words look like clouds !

Again I used foam to layer up the images, the Marianne die for the fence,
a Martha Stewart Punch for the edge of the lid.
The tag and leaves on top were both made using  Marianne dies. 
Flowers are Prima with gems added !!

 When I showed these to my other half he just went "WOW"
Even though I say it myself I love these !!!
Hope you do too !

Anyway come and join in our Challenge at Polka Doodles !
Happy Crafting
