Where the Heart is

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

Time for another challenge on Simon Says Stamps Challenge and this week is for Dies and Punches .


And the team are using the new Exclusive dies from Simon Says Stamps and I'm using Where the Heart is set, I brought the bundle so I get the dies but the matching stamps as well. I had such fun making the house. I paper pieced yellow paper so it looks like the lights are on and to make the spotty curtains. I cut out the house twice so my chimney is behind the eaves.
I had to used the windows to flower pots since this was the first thing I thought when I saw the window die. I even immediately made a card using them, you can find it here.
The trees are using the small forest tree and using the cricut to make skinny ovals for the back of them. I used Echo Park Happy Together papers and the Martha Stewart Icicle punch for grass. The clouds come in the house pack too but guess who forgot to stamp them.

Now don't forget there is a fabulous prize but you have to enter it to win it.


Do check out the team  and their gorgeous creations and I look forward to seeing the entries.

What a great idea to use the windows as flower lots! The cheery windows and curtains are just right (though I wouldn't want to fussy cut - that is why you have dies LOL). Love the level of detail!

In the house I grew up in there was a tree outside my bedroom window. The kids next door were allowed to stay up much later. They would stop on the road in front of my window and I would yell Hello out the window. soemtimes we went out the window onto the tree. Great card, stirred up many memories. Come and visit me, I can stay up later now. lol Blessings Carole
