A House Full of Heart


This week at Create with Connie and Mary there is an AWESOME sketch to try your had at! At first I was extremely intimidated but once I figured out my colour scheme, it was clear sailing! Of course, I had to use my newest favourite shape maker, my Cupcake Punch! Can you tell what I used it for?

Okay, before I get started on that, here is the sketch from this week’s challenge:

Now for the bits – some of it is pretty self explanatory but let me tell you what I used that punch for! If you look closely along the bottom, you’ll see some extra little bushes on the green-grass layer. Yep, Cupcake tops.

Oh, and that cute house? I used my Neighbourhood wheel on some Marina Mist cardstock and cut it out. But the roof? Yep, three Cupcake bottoms.

The last use of the Cupcake punch on this card was the rays of the sun. Yep, Cupcake candles.

So yes, I flipped the sketch and took A LOT of creative license but I think you can see where I was going with this, can’t you?

So head on over to Create with Connie and Mary and play along!
