The second card is one I made just for fun to try out some new stamps I recently bought. Have you seen these stamps from Art Impressions? They are called Door Ways and Shoppe Windows and you can get stamp sets that are accessories to decorate the doors, porch, and windows. This was really fun to play with and I can't wait to make some other cards with them.
The red base card is Stampin' Up InColor Riding Hood Red. The background designer paper and the paper used for piecing the window awning and presents is from Basic Grey's Wassail paper pack. I colored everything with Copics and added some gold embossing on the lantern, door knocker and handle. The doorknob is a brad. It is hard to see on the photo but I used Stampendous Crystal Snow glitter on the steps and under the window to make it look wintery. The wreath, packages, tree and sentiment on the window sign are from several Stampin' Up sets. This was definitely one of those cards that was a lot of fun to make but one I wouldn't want to try to mass produce to send out at the holidays. It has a lot of detail work that took time but isn't it fun to play with cards like this?
Here's wishing you a wonderful, creative day! Enjoy the lovely spring day wherever you may be!
