I am SO excited for this release!!! LOTS of FUN new sets and Gumdrops! I have so many favorites, one of which is the set that I'm featuring today, Winter Home. B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L! Such a sweet little scene with fabulous sentiments! What more do you need?!!! I've made two very different cards using this set, so let's get started.
For my first card, I paper pieced every. single. element. of this image. It took a bit of time, but oh, how I love the end result! I used Copics to add shading, to create the sky (how do you like the 'smoke' out of the chimney? hehe! I just used my colorless blender to create it!) and also to color in the warm glow in the windows. All of the snow, yes, ALL of it, was Stickled then cut out and adhered where needed per the image. The sentiment is also from this set. Told you it included fabulous sentiments!
Now, for the second card... I've been wanting to make a card without coloring the main image. I've seen that technique around blog land and decided to give it a go! I used 7 different DP sheets (all from one pack) for this card! The scallop opening was created using the larger die from the Open Scallop Die Set. A few other dies, a button and some twine, along with silver glittered gumdrops add extra interest. Oh, and of course, the sentiment is from this set ;)
