Holiday Home for PP215

Hello there my inky Friends! It's Sunday, time for another Paper Players challenge, and this week I have the pleasure and honor to be hostess! I hope you like my "inchie" layout, and that you'll find time to play along with us! 

Never satisfied with my own work, I made two cards with this layout, one in portrait and one in landscape. I decided to post my CAS portrait version today as I thought it was more true to the original sketch, but tune in tomorrow if you want to see the landscape version! 

Though I have an entire Pinterest Board dedicated to the Holiday Home Stamp Set, it has been sitting on my shelf for a while uninked. Though I didn't use any of the larger images today, I though the bitty ones would work well for this layout. 

There are so many tiny and adorable pieces to this set, and the fact that they are photopolymer makes them a breeze to line up. However, I must issue a warning! They are super sticky in a good way, but don't leave them unattended! Put them right onto your block, clean and put away. Otherwise, a tiny stamp may wind up attached to your package of black card stock for weeks, as did mine!

Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Holiday Home
Card Stock: Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink Pads: Memento Tuxedo Black, Tangerine Tango
Tools: 1" Square and 3/4" Circle Punches

So glad you stopped by today!

Love the way you used these tiny images for this week's sketch. Your blog post made me smile - I was making a project with this set last week and kept loosing the little stamps amongst the clutter on my desk. I must learn to be tidier! Thanks for a great sketch this week - love it!

Well, I have to admit the tiny stamps are very intimidating to me but I love how you used them. It really highlights the versatility of the stamp set. Terrific card!

Sandy, this card is fabulous! I bought this stamp set and haven't used it yet. You motivated me to ink it up. As messy as my desk is, I better be careful because I have thrown stamps away before. Thanks for the warning! I will look forward to tomorrow's version of your creative card! XX

Sandy, such a great use of this set. I can't make up my mind whether I prefer the horiztonal or vertical... they are both fabulous. I really hadn't thought about this set when I saw the sketch... awesome.
