I had this idea for a card using Hero Arts Welcome Neighbor, it didn't quite turn out as it looked inside my head but it did turn out well.

First of all I cheated I couldn't be asked to mask and stamp usually it goes wrong when I'm nearly done so instead I stamped all the different house, colour in using Prismacolors and then fussy cut all of them. It was easy to fussy cut since they were basically simple straight lines but if you prefer there are dies.

I then layered them to where it was pleasing to the eye and no white spaces in between. Once I was happy I stuck then down and used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles. The sentiment and clouds are all from the Hero Arts stamp set and just a bit of coloured card to finish off.

  1. Wonderful!! I love the cluster of houses you've made, Debbby! Your pencil coloring is so soft and pretty! Great inspiration. TFS♡


  2. Love your design on this Debby really different and fun too xx

  3. Fabulous card Debby!! I am not sure I would have fussy cut all of those houses, it is definitely a labour of love, I would get the dies to match ;-) The soft colours and fairly simple design are absolutely gorgeous!! LOVE it :-)

  4. I love the collection of houses and your arrangement is great, and as you say being straight edges the cutting is not too onerous. A very pretty card. x

  5. Love this sweet little village, Debby, and the softer colors are so pleasing!

  6. So cute. This reminds me of San Francisco. Love the house colors :)

  7. Wonderful card Debby! I love how you've placed the houses, they look fabulous together xxx

  8. Gorgeous card, Debby! I love the color combo and how you kept it light and beautiful. It kind of reminds me of San Francisco's "painted ladies"! :) Have you ever seen those?!
