My first project is serving two purposes – the Stampin’B’s challenge for this week and also Day 3 of the Blog Hop.
The hostess for this week’s Stampin’B’s challenge was Vicki Dutcher, who wanted us to make a “home” card. I love the look of the split negative, and this house image from Welcome Home seemed perfect for that technique. I stamped two versions – one in Versafine Olympia Green on MFP Snow Storm Smooth and the other in SU Whisper White on MFP Seeds of Thyme. I like the look of the traditional red and green of the stripes in that DP. The Christmas tree “charm” is actually an enameled brad, with the “legs” bent to create a hook at the back.
The other main image of this set is a lighthouse. I had made another card recently using this image with these same DPs (Basic Grey Granola), and I liked the way it turned out – so I used them again, on a smaller scale. The “sand” and “water” are made from Mudd Puddles, a product I recently found. The sentiment and seagulls are from MFP’s Tropical Vacation set.
These lighthouse salt and pepper shakers are from Key West, Florida.
Don’t forget -- For another chance to win a free stamp set, be sure to visit the blogs of the rest of today’s design team and comment on each.
Here is the Blog Hop LINE UP for today, but LOOK for a NEW LINK LIST TOMORROW!!!
