HSN cards for Art Impressions

I was lucky enough to have a couple of my cards shown on the Home Shopping Network this week!  Art Impressions had several features on air on Tuesday, and I made a couple of cards featuring the 4926 Holiday Mansion stamp set, and the Garden Add-On:
 For my first card, I did a little paper piecing, stamping the house on some subtly patterned soft pink paper.  I stamped it again on some white cardstock, then coloured & cut out the roof and details before gluing them on.  I kept my colour palette fairly limited, to coordinate with the background paper.
 A closeup of the main image that I raised on pop dots over the oval mat.  I made the birds into robins!  Each of those little images come as a stamp, and there is a tiny die to cut out each one.  The house comes with dies that cut out the windows, shutters, and doors, so you can peek different images out of or behind each area.
My sunrise card was an idea that I had immediately when I knew I was using the Garden Add-on set (you buy the mansion stamp, and can add on Christmas/Easter/Halloween/Bday sets to change it up!)  I couldn't get ahold of a sunburst stencil or die for my quick turnaround, so I made my own stencil - scroll down and you'll see what I came up with.  It only took a few minutes to create with a ruler & exacto knife, then I used Distress Oxide inks to create the rays on my cardstock.  I cut the circle of the sun and the hillside using some stitched dies & patterned paper, and cut the clouds out of some fun paper as well.  This time I snuck the sentiment inside the door, so you can see it when you open it up.
Lot's of work, but so worth it - these were such fun to make!  You can see all of the Holiday Mansion collection HERE on the Ai website. Here is the creation of my sunburst:

Happy stamping!
