We've Moved

Hi, Vladka here!

Also on today's card I'm using dies from Home sweet home release and also some dies from previous releases. I saw ideas for such a card on the Pinterest and decided to give it a try. So, I used Build a House set 2 die and cut out just upper part of the house to create little houses. Balloons are taking the middle one away to another place. Let me show you how I created this card.


White card base: 4 1/4 x 6 inches (cut 4 1/4 x 12 inches, fold in half)
Additional piece of white cardstock and some white cardstock to cut out the die cuts 

Other Supplies:

CottageCutz Dies: Listed Below
Distress Ink: Fired Brick, Fossilized Amber, Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagon, Dusty Concord, Aged Mahogany, Tumbled Glass
Other: Scissors, Paper trimmer, Sizzix machine, Scor-buddy, Water, Sheet of Acetate

1. First let's do some smooshing on additional piece of paper to prepare the background.  Add some Tumbled Glass Ink on acrylic block and spritzed some water on it. Then take a piece of plastic acetate and gentle pressed it against the block to pick up some of the ink. Now, press the plastic on the paper to transfer the ink. This will give you a splotchy look. Do the same with green distress ink on the bottom of the paper. This will look like the lawn.

2. Cut the Balloons out of white cardstock and color them with differnet distress inks and use blending tool for that. Distress the edges with darker distress inks. 

3. With Build a House set 2 die cut 3 little houses out of white cardstock. Leave the first two white and glue the roof and the window on both of them. On the third one use the smallest heart from the heart set dies and cut the heart out of the house. Colore the heart red and put it back where it was cut out before. Color also the roof and glue it on the house. 

4. Now it is time to glue everything together. But first cut the expression "We've Moved" out of the white cardstock. Now put all the pieces together as shown on the photo. Use aslo 3D foam adhesive squares to glue some balloons and the house with the heart.

I hope you like this card. Enjoy the summer and have fun creating. And don't forget, fourth CottageCutz challenge is waiting for you. This time theme is GREENERY. You can linked your project here. And please, use only Scrapping Cottage dies.
