MCT April Sneak Peek #4

Wow!  We are already up to our last day of sneak peeks!  I had fun making today's card for a specific family.  I've taught both of the children in this family, and they've invited me to a barbecue at their new home.  Since their last name is Green (which, of course, is the favorite color of both children), I just had to incorporate little pops of green into my card.

I started by stamping the row of houses from MCT's Home Sewn stamp set onto kraft cardstock.  To get them lined up straight, I placed my stamp on my Fiskars' Stamp Press, which gave me grid lines to work with.  I then stamped the cute family from the new My Creative Time stamp set, We Are Family, which is being released tomorrow.  This set has lots of peeps, so you can create your own family, or use one of the ready-made ones, like I did, since it matches the family that I am giving this to.  I then used my sewing machine to sew the "street".  Finally, I stamped another house onto chocolate cardstock and green patterned paper and cut them out to make the Greens' house!

For my sentiment, I die cut some clouds using a die from MCT's Fly Away With Me Dies, and then stamped a sentiment from Home Sewn.  I think the Greens will enjoy their personalized card!

  29. Katie ~ I told you on your FB page I think this card is so BRILLIANT! Using the older stamp (house) with the potty peeps, then making the paper piecing the one house ~ I LOVE this look! Then you go and use the pattern paper in green for the cloud ~ I LOVE that idea! Awesome creation as always!
