Waltzingmouse Sept Preview Day 1 - Love Lives Here

I'm so excited to be showing you a preview of A Cottage Home - one of the wonderful new sets Claire has created for the Waltzingmouse September Release! 

The Design Team will be previewing new sets Friday through Sunday and we'll be having a Blog Waltz for the release on Monday so I hope you'll keep stopping by!

And here's my preview card.  I used one of the wonderfully detailed cottages in this set, coloring it with Copics.  This stamp just screamed at me to layer it - so I stamped it three times, cut out the front with the pointed roof and then just the door and layered them over the first stamping with foam tape.  
I used this weeks Split Coast Sketch for my card.   You can see the layering here on this side view.  I put clear rhinestones on the tops of the chimneys so they look shimmery silver, two orange ones on the circle ornamentation on the base of the gingerbread trim and 3 black ones on the door.
 On the inside - I stamped one of the sentiments in black ink.  Then I stamped the decorative trees and walkway in grey ink - coloring the trees with a Copic.  I just LOVE that walkway - don't you??!!


And I'd like to take this opportunity to welcome three new DT members -  Becca, Kelly and Clare - please help us give them a warm welcome today!!  We're SO excited to have them join the team!

Julia!!! Lovely card and your coloring is beautiful.

Cathy Weber said...

Julia this is a really pretty card, the house itself is amazing just with the way you colored it, but the popped up layers, especially the door really add to the great design. I love the shading on the windows that give the illusion of light shining from inside the house. So great today, wish I had it already.

Wanda Cullen said...

Fantastic card, Julia. I was most taken with the about of dimension your achieved. The thought never occurred to me, but now that I see how great your card is, I'm going to have to CASE your technique with this set. Amazing creativity!
