The Stamps Of Life April Release: Houses4us!

Hello!  This is my second post of the day so scroll down for more!  Today is the first of April, so that means a brand new release from The Stamps Of Life!  I am in love with this set.  The house images are so perfect for paper piecing.  I used patterned papers from My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose Hattie collection.  I used distress inks in Walnut Stain and Old Paper on all of the papers to give it a primitive look.  I stamped my sentiment using a masking technique so that I could get each individual word and then cut them out.  I added a vintage button with a burlap bow to the bottom corner.
Here is another card using stamps from this set:
I used paper from Crate Paper's Emma collection to piece this house.  I also stamped the picket fence several times on white cardstock and then cut and pieced it together to fit across the card.  I used the birds and swirls cuttlebug folder for the background and added some burlap string and a button to the bottom.

Make sure you check out this fabulous set!  I will have a couple more cards in the days to come with this one.  You can purchase this set even if you are not a club member!  Check here for all of the deets
