March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop- Happy Place

Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for March 2014- Happy Place

If you have come here from Haley's Blog, you're on the right path. 

How FUN is this stamp set???  It's all about HOME, FAMILY and LOVE for me :)  

Today I wanted to do something a little bit different.  I know you'll see tons of adorable art using the little dolls in this stamp set.  I decided to focus on HOME.  My home is truly my happy place :)

Here is a canvas of my home :)

I used a 9x12 canvas that I found at a local craft store.

I got started by cutting out the house image on Art Philosophy, using the layers in black and colonial white. I cut it at "fit to page" or 7 3/4".   I cut and embossed barn red cardstock to look like brick.  I used the Stripe Embossing Folder, and ran it through both directions to give it a checkered & weathered look.  I added some Black Shimmer Trim to the roof line as well as next to the windows to look like shutters.  

I cut the tree from Artbooking, in layers of Kraft paper and Green Glitter Paper.  

Finally, I cut some clouds in sizes varying from 1" to 2 1/2" from Artiste.  I laid them on the canvas, then sponged around them using Sky Pigment Ink.  I stamped "Home is our happy place" using Barn Red Pigment ink, and "What I love most about my home..." in barn red ink.  I finished it off by sponging a fence in Cocoa Pigment Ink on the sides of the house.  

This is now proudly displayed in my living room :)
