New Digs

I have a problem. My problem is collecting stamps. There are so many great stamp companies out there, and I love all the cute little stamps they make. I buy way too many stamps. I am in need of getting rid of some of my stamps to make home for my new stamps. One of my newest sets, that I was super excited to get, and to use is from Taylored Expressions, Cozy Cottages

I have seem to have a tonne of friends moving this month, so this was the perfect stamp set. The first card I made with this set I decided to use the Sweet Sunday Sketch for my inspiration

I'm usually not a big user of flashy, lots of print paper. But because when I saw the sketch, and I knew that I would use pretty simple plain paper as the foreground paper, I went with a little flash in the back. I had decided that I wanted to make a little scene using one of the houses from the stamp set, with a nice little lawn. I had no idea how I was going to do that since I own no dies, and don't have a "grass" stamp, but then on a whim I decided to check out my cricut cartridges (they get lonely I don't use them often), and I found grass. Awesome.

So here's what I came up with.

Now that its done, there are a few things i would change about it, but all in all I'm fairly happy with the way it turned out (although I'm not happy with my picture, my camera is crapping out on me, and not focusing, the flash is working only sometimes blah blah blah - need a new camera)

  1. I love this! The fringe grass is just amazing and I love it inset in the circle. Super cute!
