Obsessed!!

The Stamper's Dream Dream Team has been obsessed this week!! Yep, it's Impression Obsession Week and each day this week, Dream Team members have been sharing projects made with IO's new releases. And they are fabulous!! For this final day, I get the honor of showing you their charming House!! What a fabulous image. I had such an awesome time coloring and decorating it. The house is colored with copics, and I gussied up the flowers a bit with Sweetpea Flower Soft. The brad was made with Chatterboxes Easy Brad Maker Kit and my JustRite Fonts. I used 25 pt Trompe Upper and Lowercase, and 15 pt Times Roman. One cool thing about the brads is the prongs open out away from the center. So instead of having to poke the brad through the ribbon, I was able to wrap the prongs around it instead. And oh, how I love May Art's Silk Ribbon. Talk about soft!! And it lays so beautifully!! I used the Rose Silk Ribbon, and added a hint of bling, to the door handle and corners, with Multicolored Mini Rhinestones (Zva Creative).

Stamper's Dream is now carrying some Martha Stewart punches, and I use them often on my cards. This time I used the Arch Lattice Border Punch. It adds a subtle elegance to the card I think.

Well, that about sums up the details. Check out what the rest of the team made this week.

Oh Tosh what a darling little house with those overflowing flower boxes! Reminds me of "An old house in Paris, All covered with vines, Lived twelve little girls, In two straight lines...the youngest one was Madeline!" I love your generous old bow too!

P.S. Only thing your house card is missing is Miss Clavel and perhaps a little Genevieve!
