SU New Home card

On Wednesday I burbled on about the 'pre-loved' SU sets on my desk - this was made using one of them:
I used:

- 5" x 7" white card stock

- SU's 'Good Neighbours' stamp set - stamped using Brilliance DewDrops, as I didn't have browns in the SU ink pads here. I think the fine detail in the set really does need less 'gloopy' ink pads than the Brilliance ones though, or a quick tap first onto scrap paper before stamping onto the card

- sentiment also stamped using a Brilliance DewDrop and a confession - it 'glooped' big time, and that was right at the end of making the card!! So, I re-did it onto white card and die-cut a pennant shape then firmly stuck it over the smudged sentiment, no way was the card going in the bin after all that positioning and stamping :( The sentiment stamp came free with a magazine BTW

The SU set is so flipping cute, it comes with little houses and separate roofs so you can mix and match, as well as the trees and clouds - I love it! I see there are some other fabby mix and match sets in the current SU Main and Summer catalogues too :)

Busy day for me here writing up the snippets roll call, I've just closed the playground for fear of a last minute scamper of feet which I just couldn't cope with - send wine later, I might be ready for it! Err, perhaps add a funnel to the order :)

Sweet little houses Di and love the mix and match ability you mention. Typical SU, wonderful versatility.

Sending a nice Rioja and a straw your way :)

Lovely card, those houses are s cute too. I thought it was just me that found the brilliance inkpads a bit temperamental. Hugs, amanda x

I have just found your blog after looking at Sandra's blog (Stamping for Pleasure) - the Pasty recipe did it for me!!!!!

I do love this card Di - I have yet to stamp straight onto a card base - I am such a wuss! Stamping is my main 'thing' with crafting though and I just love the colours you have used. The whole design looks clean and elegant.

Lovely card.

Aww, really sweet card Di, looks like you got some great stamps on the cheap there! I came to link up to the Playground at the last minute but found the gates well and truly locked!! Hope you're "enjoying" the wine, purely medicinal of course!!

Would send you some wine but we drunk it all. Love the little houses. That fact that you can change their roofs around sounds like fun . Hugs mrs a.

Lovely card, Di - those SU stamps are cute. I had a similar inking mishap today - dropped the stamp on to the card after stamping :( Like how you saved the situation here. Hugs, Elizabeth xx
