Home Sweet Home...CR84FN38#2 59

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, September 17, 2011 @ 8:55 PM | , , , , , , , , ,

Hello! Hope you are all having a fab weekend! I'm here to share a project I made for the second week of the CR84FN38 Color Challenge. Today is also Day #3 of the September Waltzinmouse Stamps previews ~ you can check out all the details here. There's one more week left to play with the fun color combo shown below: (beautiful photos courtesy of Leslie at a creative mint).
I altered this inexpensive wooden birdhouse that I purchased at Joann's for $1! (sweeeet!)
I made the little heart banner using Spellbinders Hearts Punch templates for the Presto Punch featuring the HOME sweet HOME sentiment from the NEW Waltzingmouse A Cottage Home set that will be released Monday, September 19th.
To make the darling little bird embellishment, I pulled out a piece of Spellbinders Precious Metals Premium Craft Foil ~ Gunmetal and using the smaller of the two birds from Spellbinders Bird Sanctuary set, I cut/embossed then lightly sanded to reveal the lovely detail:
In case you were wondering how I created this project, shown below are a few pics I took along the way. I prepped the roofline by applying black Gesso and white Gesso to the roof trim and base.
Shown below are the 4 house panels, die and punch templates and the roof panels that were made using fun patterned paper using Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue collection ~ Eau De Parfume. After adhering all the panels and trim along the roof line, I sprinkled the roof with Melissa Frances Mica flakes and finished it off with the Home Sweet Home banner and foil bird die cut.
Thanks so much for looking! Please hop on over to CR84FN for COMPLETE details on how to join in the fun and for some awesome inspiration, please visit all the designers blogs listed below. Be Sweet!

Stamps: Waltzingmouse A Cottage Home
Patterned Paper:  Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue ~ Eau De Parfume 00542, retired Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology, Making Memories

GOOD MORNING MONA~~ I cannot believe I am actually having a cup of tea with your blog this morning HAPPY DANCE!! I have to say that from this project until the last time you showcased these colors for CR84FN WOW there are some amazing posts here. I feel like I need to wear that witches hat most days right now LOL I love the 7 Gypsies box full of goodies ...... I looked at them the other day and thought humm I do not know should I and although my answer in my head that day was I can live without it ....... it is not the same answer today MUST HAVE!! Love the birdhouse today ....... the black bird is FABBY!!! Love the Halloween card with the larger font ....... and a bit of bling never hurt my feelings. I am going to buy the mini roses today and I think the regular size one too. I have the rolled flower but I do love the scallops on the roses and that they come in different sizes.... I always take of some of the die cut to change my sizes. And I want you to know that I downloaded that song from your son's video ........ LOVE and I laugh when I am running to it to think that I would stop and shuffling ....... and this week we started using that in Zuma too so you are on my mind plenty. Have a great week Mona and thanks for inspiring me to get out of my blah funk and wanting to craft again!!
