I hope that everyone had a very wonderful Christmas Day celebrating with Family and Friends. Over here in BC, Canada, we got a white Christmas. It was so beautiful just watching the snow fall and see everything white all over the place.
For today, I have made a card to wish you all a Happy New Year "From our Home to Yours". This card was also made for the Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast stampers.
Inspiration of this challenge was taken from - Mackenzie-Childs. Here is the picture I drew inspiration from http://www.mackenzie-childs.com/product.aspx?orgid=16&floor=14&dept=16&col=0&id=814&keywords=/Fur14/All16/&page=1&vao=0. The inspiration is entitled - Kitchen in a Cupboard Scenery Armoire. I didn't have a stamp of a Cupboard and instead I used a Window Scenery for this challenge.
Scenery stamp is from the Home Sweet Home stamp set of Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps which was just released this December. Image was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored with various copic markers. Image of the window was stamped with Deep Brown Color Box and cut out with scissores. Filled in the white parts with Brick Beige copic markers and highlighted some portions with a glitter pen. Cut the opening of the window and glue some acetate at the back and then placed the scenery behind the acetate. The window piece was then mounted onto a beige cs that was die cut with the Labels 2 nestabilities from Spellbinders. The edges of the label was sponged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. This was then mounted onto the background paper from the Classic Paper Designs from Crafty Secrets. Added some brads to the bg paper and the lace border punched cs to the edges.
