Home Sweet Home {MFTWSC134}

It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club and sketch 134. Hop over to the MFT Blog to find out how you can play along to win up to $20 to spend at the MFT Boutique.

I flipped the sketch just a little because I knew I wanted a blue "sky" at the top, but I kept the embellishments in their original location. Oh, and I turned it into a square card.  :-)

I started with a Whip Cream card base then added layers of Nightshift Blue and Kraft. For the blue sky I cut a piece of Sno Cone then used the Darling Dots stamp set to stamp the dots with Sno Cone Premium Dye Ink.

I used the new Pierced Circle STAX Die-namics (swoon!! LOVE these!) to cut out the Whip Cream circle then I stamped the branch from Homespun Birdhouse using Hot Fudge Premium Dye Ink. I used the Homespun Birdhouse Die-namics to cut out the house and the bird from Nightshift Blue, Kraft and Sno Cone, then I added a piece of Wild Cherry behind the heart opening. I wanted the bird's wing to be patterned so I used the small dots from Washi Patterns stamped with Berrylicious Premium Dye Ink. I added Kraft buttons to the roof for a fun look.

The flower element was created using the Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose Die-namics. I cut the flower from Wild Cherry felt and backed the bottom layer with Wild Cherry card stock for stability. The leaves were cut from Sour Apple using the Royal Leaves Die-namics.

Here's a shot of the dimension.

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from Homespun Birdhouse with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink and added a Wild Cherry heart.

Awwww, you must really like the person getting this to use so many buttons! Perfect little card -- and gives me an idea for a niece who just had a baby!
