Home Sweet Home

With all of the snow that's been falling everywhere, I wanted to create a wintry card using the Cozy Cottages set from Taylored Expressions.  After all, some of the coziest cottages are the ones that are tucked in a hillside of snow with steamy windows and smoke coming out of the chimney, right?  :)  I decided to use the birdhouse image from the set.  (Remember, this set is this quarter's TE Giving Tree set.  February through April 2011, TE will donate $7.00 for each Cozy Cottages stamp set sold to Habitat for Humanity!!)   I colored the image with Copic markers, cut it out and then added some Polar White Flower Soft. 

I die cut the tree using the Whimsy Tree Die and the fence using the Picket Fence Border Die and added the Flower Soft to those too.  The background piece was cut using the Frame It Up 1 Die.  I used the Wintertime Collection from Echo Park.  The front edge of the card was die cut using the Large Scallop Border Die

Hope you're staying warm and cozy wherever you are!  Thanks for stopping by!  SUPPLIES USED:  Stamps- Cozy Cottages (Taylored Expressions); Ink- Burnt Umber (Palette); Paper- Wintertime Collection (Echo Park); Accessories- Whimsy Tree Die, Picket Fence Border Die, Frame It Up 1 Die, Large Scallop Border Die (Taylored Expressions) Labels 10 Nestabilities (Spellbinders);  Finished card measures 4.25"x5.5"
