Holiday Homes.....

Hello everyone: It's time for another challenge over at SHOPPING OUR STASH, this week we want to inspire you to create a card or project featuring a HOUSE or BUILDING, it could be a doggie's house, a bird's house or a people's house, you decide. Here is a card I made that I hope will inspire you to join us in the gallery and, for more fabulous inspiration, hop over to my teammates' blogs to see their awesome cards.

All of this adorable little houses are from a retired Stampin Up! set called "Holiday Home", it came out in the 2014 Holiday Mini Catalog, it has images for all of the end of the year celebrations. I love this houses and I wanted to use all 3 of them so I created this "Screen Divider" card using THIS tutorial, this stamps allow you to create truly awesome scenes and using this fun fold it's fabulous way to make a card that can be displayed through the season.  I stamped the house images onto Canson water color paper and colored them with SU markers and the aqua painter. 
Here is a picture of the back of this card, you can decorate it too, I just cut some pattern paper and glue it to 3 panels and left one blank with just a short greeting and enough space for a little hand written message.

I hope you are inspired and join us in the gallery and, for more awesome inspiration, please visit my teammates' blogs.
Thank you for stopping by, I read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate this more than words can express,
Until next time, happy stamping,
Hugs from Maria.

Miss Maria: First, let me say, you are a bada$$! I love your new pic, and you are an inspiration in more ways than one. I mean that from the heart.
This screen card is the coolest, and I feel like I want to CASE it... it is so right-on, and I think the idea to display it through the season is the best! Happy Dia de los Muertos, (red faced me!) HUGS
