Village House                                            Village Church                        Village Cottage House          

I love the new Village images.  They are so perfect for creating a winter scene for holiday cards.  For my project today I used the Village House paired with the Brush Tree Line, Square Shaker Frames and Pine Branch.

I stamped the house image on watercolor paper, painted with reinkers and cut out.  I sponged the sky background on white cardstock using my hand cut cloud template and Inkssentials ink blending tool. I stamped the brush tree line image to complete the background for the house.

I cut the and attached a small strip of deckle cut cardstock across the bottom for a snowy ground area.  I mounted the frame with mounting tape over the background scene and tucked the house in behind the ground snow and attached with mounting tape. I cut sections of pine and cut one apart to create the pine bough embellishment,  I added a gingham multi loop bow for the finishing touch.  I can never seem to keep myself from adding touches of pine to my holiday cards.

  2. Your clouds are amazing! Really have enjoyed how you have shown different ways and ideas for this new Brush Tree Line stamp. Great card and of course always love your signature embellishments with the die cuts

  3. Very pretty! I can imagine so many uses for the village stamp sets. You created a beautiful scene and I love the way you framed it!

  4. Hi Kittie,
    Oh, you’ve got me in a holiday mood! Christmas in July is about to happen in my craft room …lol! The new village buildings are beautiful and it looks like they can be customized so many ways. One question…did you put someting in the windows of the house? Thanks for sharing your beautiful, inspiring work!

  5. Love this card! Takes me back to winter trips to my Granny’s house in the country. It was an old red farm house.

  6. Love how that Brush Tree line makes such a wonderful background. Really enjoy your pine and bow extras on the cards – really makes them special.

  7. Love these little houses. And the scene you created with the trees too! Great job. Wonderful card. Thanks for sharing.
