Papertrey Ink Love Lives Here new home card

Helle everyone,

I hope you had a good weekend and are refreshed and ready for another week on the merry go land of life. I'm continuing with the celebrations over at Papertrey Ink and we've reached 


so I pulled out a set that I loved when it came out in 2010 called Love Lives Here, and used my favourite pink, aqua and lilac colour combo.

1) Die cut a stitched rectangle and stamp 2 of the houses near the top in green and lilac ink.

2)  Stamp the love lives here sentiment in green ink and then snip the happy from the new home sentiment from Keep it Simple: Home stamp set with a little scissor surgery, and stamp over two lines in pink and lilac ink.

3) Emboss the panel with the PTI Canvas and Linin Impression Plate to give some texture.

4) Die cut a house from pink card and stamp one of the houses in white ink. Die cut 3 more houses from scrap card and stack them beneath the pink one to give some dimension, and stick it in the centre of the 2 stamped houses.

5) Now promise not to laugh at the next bit, but it is about as shabby chic as I can get, in homage to Melissa Phillips who designed the set and is the shabby chic Queen lol! I took a rectangle of white card to use as a mat and tore the edges with a tearing ruler before lightly inking the edges with pink ink. Well I think it is a bit shabby!

6) Finish off by adding 3 little hearts and adhering the panel to the base card, raising it on fun foam.
