Cute Card Thursday

Great theme this week on the Cute Card Thursday challenge blog its....

In The House

The challenge this week is to make a card with the theme of 'In The House', anything which can be found in the home is fine and we are looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

The Alota stamps came out again! I've used the window, settee and bugs.
First of all I made the background with two contrasting papers, they are from the Stampin Up designer papers range. I then added a thin strip of cs to seperate the floor from the wall. The window was stamped and cut out and then I coloured in the wood with prismas and zest it. Acetate was added to cover the panes.I paper pieced the curtain and rail. To make the scene i stamped two poppy images with green ink and then paper pieced the head of the flowers. To make the frame I stamped part of the window and cut out a square, coloured it the same way and then added some acetate and the sentiment. To "hang" it I stuck on some thread and used a brad to hang it on the "wall".
The sofa was again paper pieced with two
contrasting papers. The bugs were coloured with prismas and zest it and a little bit of stickles to their wings. I then stuck them on with 3D pads.

Stamps:- Alota
Papers:- Stampin Up designer papers - Le Jardin

There is a fantastic prize this week, two of Katharina's new stamps from Whiff Of Joy stamps. Makes me wish I could win too, but sadly I can't!!
