Happy Housewarming!

I made this card for my friends' housewarming party tonight. They have a beautiful "Cottage In the Woods" they are remodeling!
I used Beate's WSC130 for this layout - the card size is 5-1/4" square. The houses are colored with the aquapainter for a nice soft look, and I used All In a Row for the faux stitching. The top soft sky piece does have a background stamped on it, but it doesn't show up well in the picture.
stamps- Right At Home, All In a Row, Everyday Flexible Phrases
paper - chocolate chip, soft sky, river rock, whisper white, river rock and soft sky prints dsp
ink - chocolate chip, soft sky, river rock, really rust
acc - chocolate taffeta ribbon, HodgePodge Hardware, 1-1/4" & 1-3/8" circle punches, dimensionals, mini glue dots, aquapainter

I made this coordinating set of thank you cards as our gift to our friends. The card on the left is CASEd from Kristina Werner, and the one laying flat is CASEd from Michelle Fischer. The one on the right I came up with all by myself, heehee!
stamps - All Holidays, French Flair, So Many Sayings, In the Spotlight, Petals jumbo wheel
paper - soft sky, chocolate chip, whisper white, soft sky designer prints
ink - soft sky, chocolate chip, white craft, versamark
acc - white EP, white grosgrain, chocolate taffeta, chocolate grosgrain, soft sky double-stitched grosgrain, 1-1/4" & 1-3/8" circle punches, scallop punch, white brads, white button, Pretties kit (rhinestone brad)

And here is the finished product! I put all the cards and envelopes in a gusset bag and finished it with a topper made from soft sky designer prints and whisper white and chocolate chip cardstocks. I used the crop-a-dile for the holes for the white organdy ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

Becky, I can't be believe WE were the happy recipients of this gift! I LOVE them!!!! Thank you.

You are so creative. Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous! We're so glad you could come to our housewarming party.

I have a thank you card for you, sadly it's just a store bought one, but since I'm not a creative stamper, I'll hold to the sentiments that it's the thought that counts ;o)
