Hearts Come Home Christmas Card - Stampin' Up!

I wanted to share with you a super card I made recently using the Hearts Come Home Stamp Set it's one of the sets in the new Autumn/Winter Stampin' Up! Catalogue, and I really think its a lovely set with some cute images and sentiments.

I've been doing a lot of cards recently with a lovely technique that uses different colours to sponge on to the paper. I started with some Crumb Cake Card Stock as the base and then matted and layered that with Night of Navy, Garden Green and then Whisper White. ( the ribbon under the garden green layer is Stripped Grosgrain Ribbon in Dapper Denim)  

Hearts Come Home
I masked off a small circle in the right hand corner with a post-it-note using the 1 inch circle punch, I then stamped the houses in the bottom row in Night of Navy, I then covered the bottom row of houses with some scrap paper and stamped the next two row going up the page, I wasn't too precise but i just wanted the idea that the houses were behind each other. That's the fun thing about card making you don't have to be an expert you just try things and see where it takes you. I then stamped the little tree from the stamp set in between the houses in Old Olive.

After all that was done I used Night of Navy and sponged it all over the page except for about 1 inch round the circle which was covered with the post-it-note. I then went over it again at the top so it looked like storm clouds just this time slightly heavier, I went round the post-it-note with Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie, so it looked like the moon was shining.  After taking off the post-it-note I stamped the image of the sledge with Father Christmas in Memento Black Ink across the moon and used the little tiny star to stamp in silver.  The sentiment is from the set and I stamped that in Night of Navy too. I loved the finished cards and wanted to share with you how easy it is once you get started.
