Welcome to the Stamp to Share blog hop for November where the team are featuring either the Hearts Come Home bundle or the Ready for Christmas bundle.  That's right, it was a bit of multi choice this month!

I love the Hearts Come Home bundle because it appeals to the scene maker in me so much!  The dies are gorgeous with three lots of houses and landscapes, of varying sizes, to choose from and they look absolutely spectacular against a sponged night sky!

I have sponged four colours to create the background, after first masking off a moon.  I used Soft Sky, Powder Pink, Perfect Plum and lastly, Elegant Eggplant, a deep, rich purple to finish!  After removing the moon mask, I stamped Santa and the team in Archival Black ink.  I wanted the houses to look like someone was home, so I added tiny Crushed Curry card pieces behind the die cut windows - so ca-ute!

Can you see how shiny the windows are?  I made them look more like glass by using a Fine-tip Glue pen to fill them all in.  The glue dries clear and shiny - boom!

  3. Paula, you amaze me! I just love this! I have not purchased this set yet because I'm afraid it's going to retire and then I just can't keep them all. But every time I see something like this, I start thinking I should. I just love your sponging, as always. I would have never thought to use those colors, but it works perfectly! Thank you for sharing such a gorgeous creation. I also love the houses on the inside of your card. Perfect!

    1. Awww, Bobbi! Thank you for your sweet words! You should sooooo get this set! I have a feeling it will stay around a while longer lol

  4. Your card is beautiful! I love the purples in the sky. If you don't mind me asking, what ink did you use to stamp the stars in the sky? Thanks!!

    1. Hi Stephanie! Thank you for your lovely words. I used Kraft White Ink to stamp the stars in the sky.
