Home Sweet Home

Susana got in this new stamp set called Street Parts, by Crafty Individuals Stamps in stock at SCACD

The moment I saw it, I wanted it.  I wanted it right that VERY second.  Not just an  'it is pretty I want to own it', but an 'I want to ink it up and PLAY' want it.  Unusual for me, I actually waited for a bit to get it, but I worried constantly that it would disappear.  That you would all buy them up before I could get my hands on one!!!

The day it finally arrived at my house I grabbed the scissors, cut it all apart and began stamping on some Tim Holtz Glassine paper.  I had this particular project in mind, but I stamped LOTS of images since I didn't know for certain which would work just like I wanted.  I grabbed my Copics and colored some of the images.

Next up was the background on the tag.  First I used walnut ink and sprinkled on a few extra crystals to paint the road.  Then I used a couple colors of ink to put down grass and some Twinkling H2Os for the sun.  I then placed my fabulous little houses and trees to create the neighborhood. 

This was a complete BLAST to create.  I hope you get this set, it has so many possibilities and I would love to see what YOU do with it!!

Get Inky!
