There She Goes Mother of All Blog Hops 2012

Hello, Stampers!

I'm participating in the 3rd annual Mother of All Blog Hops sponsored by There She Goes Clears Stamps! All of us (customers and trendsetters) are featuring at least one of our favorite There She Goes Clear Stamp sets. Not only that, There She Goes is offering the chance to win some fabulous prizes! To find out how, please go to the There She Goes blog and read the simple instructions.

For my project, I chose to use the beautiful Welcome Home stamp set. I love sets like these that allow you to stamp a scene and create a little picture! I've never been able to hand draw, but love being creative, so being able to "draw" something with stamps is great for someone like me!

I really wanted a wooden door with stained-glass windows, so I chose to texturize both the door frame and the door with a woodgrain impression plate. I then stamped the windows on confetti cream cardstock, colored them with water-based markers (Copics might run a little too much when working in such tiny detail spaces), cut them out and pieced them over the window spaces. Then I stamped the same windows on vellum, cut them out and layered them over the colored windows. The confetti cream card base has an additional layer of confetti cream cardstock that was impressed with the woodgrain impression plate also. The effect is subtle, but creates just a little bit of dimension which I really like.

I layered the whole focal piece over a Spellbinders Nestie die cut and added some pink silk ribbon. For the sentiment, I simply punched out a heart, stamped the sentiment and then ran the whole thing through my Big Shot with the same woodgrain impression plate used on the door & frame. Voila!
