Challenge: House and Home.

Hello everyone and welcome to the latest challenge on A Passion for Papertrey.  This time our theme is "House and Home" so it's wide open for your interpretation.  It doesn't need to be a "new home" card - just feature something home-related!

I immediately thought of the wee house from the Love Lives Here die collection.  I think it's my favourite of those dies - although the butterfly is pretty cute too!!  My favourite all time colour combo of Pure Poppy and Simply Chartreuse appears here again (have to fight my urge to use it on EVERY card!!).  I hope it doesn't look too Christmassy!!

Happy For You
Stamps: Enjoy The Ride, Iconic Images, Background Basics: Gingham.
Ink: Pure Poppy, Dark Chocolate
Card: Rustic Cream, Kraft, Simply Chartreuse, Vintage Ctream.
Dies: Mat Stack 4, Mat Stack 4 layerz, Love Lives Here Collection
Ribbon:  Simply Chartreuse Saddle Stich ribbon, Pure Poppy twine
Other: Nestabilities, MS punch.

Over to Aimes
"Now for this challenge I couldn't resist my polka dot couch from On My Couch Additions. I also jumped on the Neon trend bandwagon too. Warning: 80's alert coming right up!

Card Deets
Stamps: On My Couch Additions, Everyday Button Bits, Daily Designs Sentiments (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: London Fog, Tuxedo Black (Memento)/Bubblegum (a muse)
Cardstock: White, True Black (Papertrey Ink)

Now there is something kinda clever that I like about this card. You see that lamp behind the sofa? (stamped using a masking technique) Well that's no ordinary lamp. Nope! In fact it's actually the topiary plant pot from Everyday Button Bits stamped upside down! Love it when I can get more stamp for my pennies :) "

Unfortunately Kate is totally snowed under with work this week and won't be joining us - don't forget to take a break Kate - we'll want you back and crafting again next time!!!

Sooooooo, what's up for grabs this time around I hear you shout!  It's this cute little stamp set,  Boy Basics: Simple Circles.
