Welcome to your new Home card

This card id for friends of ours that have recently moved house.  I used a fair mix of stash on this, but am really pleased with the outcome.

Stamped the Stampendous Gate post and masked to add the Odd House at the back

Used Sue Wilson's Ivy dies for added foliage (cut from Coredinations), the keys are Memory Box 

Sheena Douglass Distressed Embossing folder used on grey Coredinations, then sanded back for the matte

Do Crafts Madame Pompideu (or whatever it is) embellishemnts for the sentiment)

Have to be careful who I use this for, but I know the recipients will see the funny side

Steampunk Tag and Happy New year

I realise you are all saying "Happy New Year???? it's February!!!" but happy blog followers this is my first post of the year.  I had planned on posting much, much sooner, but I was hit with that evil cold/flu that has been doing the rounds and with other family commitments beyond my control, I have got to February before actually doing anything blog worthy.

For this project I was inspired, and I mean instantly inspired to get off my backside after seeing Hels Sheridan post for Sunday Stampers.  So I "sprinted" (ha ha, yeah right!) to the bat desk! Oops craft desk!!!

I grabbed a Kraft card Tag and attacked it with Brushed Corduroy and antique linen Distress Inks, I then used the Tim Holtz stamps to make the background and the gent is also a Tim Holtz stamp but I stamped him on a separate piece of card and distressed it to match then fussy cut (ooh I don't like that term), I cut him out and glued him on.  I then used some Creative Expression stamps (Steampunk and the quote) and attached some metal embellishments.
