Bold and Beautiful Houses (by Judith)

Hello everyone, I hope that you are all keeping well and that you have been enjoying some better weather. I have a few projects to share with you over the next few weeks that will hopefully make you think of sunnier days, the colours are certainly bright and cheerful!

My first card was made using one of the bookmark style houses featured on last month's TV shows on The Craft Store, Turret House. This has a fairytale castle feel, with Russian elements in the rooftops. I have coloured the building in bright colours to match my background, which was created with Brushos. I placed a stencil over the top and added some Distress Ink. I used the Orchard Design A Tree stamp set, to create a forest around the building.

My second card was created using the lovely Italian House. I used lots of stamps from Make Your Mark to create the background, and added texture paste through a stencil. I coloured the images with pencils. The text comes from  the Words of Wisdom stamp set, and I have used the Orchard Design a Tree stamp set once again.

I will be back soon with more projects to share with you. 

Do look out for some of our new Guest Design Team members coming up this month. I know that they are very excited to share their projects with you.

Thanks for stopping by, and take care.

  1. Your colours are gorgeous on both these cards Judith using the beautiful Turret House and love the brightly coloured trees surrounding it coordinating with the pinky purple and bright blue cloudy sky, and then the pretty greeny yellow and orangy brown tones used with the Italian House and some wonderful background stamping too to give lots of interest. x

  2. Both cards are so beautiful Judith.. Love the scenes you created, and your colors (and coloring!) are gorgeous!!

  3. Wow! Beautiful cards, the Italian house looks so pretty with that background and just LOVE the first one with those dreaming colours and the gorgeous turret house! It's great how you used Orchard design a tree to build your purple wood!!I have to try :)
