Home is Where...

...the heart is, for sure!

The Splitcoaststampers' CAS challenge is a beautiful inspiration photo this week.  I stamped the trees first, masked them, stamped the clouds, and then sponged the sky and ground.  I stamped the house onto kraft cardstock with Cherry Cobbler ink, cut it out, and applied to my scene.


My card is 4 1/4" square. After I cut out the image with a square Nestie, I got the idea to also cut/emboss with a circle Nestie within the square. I used a large square Nestie to help me line up the dotted outline frame with my black marker.  And before you get the impression that I can draw those lines perfectly straight, I used a template my friend, Joanne, gave me a year or so ago called Stitch, Doodle, Dot.  I love that thing!

Have a great day, friends!
