I started off by cutting out all the templates that they give you but I have to admit...I'm not that good with the scissors!!! SO, I decided to give myself a bit of a challenge and try to come up with a beautiful house without cutting out cardstock I really like the end result!
I started by sponging Brilliance Pearlescent Lime all over the house and then stamped the sparkle from Lizzie Anne Design's Holiday Cheer set in the same ink. I then wanted to highlight the windows without having to cut anything out so I had a 'AHA' moment! Why not use my punches! So the little windows are framed by punching with the Mega Rectangle punch and then the Giga Scalloped Rectangle punch, because they were too big I cut them down a couple of scallops and re-stuck them! The door is the Giga scalloped Rectangle punch for the green cardstock and the Mega scalloped rectangle punch for the stripy paper. The arched window took a little more thought...I punched out the top part (the arch) by using the Giga Scalloped Circle and the Mega circle punche and then the bottom part is made with the same rectangle punches. The stripy & red dotty cardstock are both from DCWV Christmas Glitter stack and the green is Bazzill Bling. The roof was decorated with Doodlebugs Christmas Sequins and then sprinkled with silver glitter from the Making Memories shimmer kit.
I have wanted to make one of these for a LONG time and I am very happy that I did. I love it!
