CASEing a Crafter: At home, under the stars

Hello friends!  I pinned an adorable card by Paula of Stampinantics on my Pinterest board entitled, "Cards - New Home" a while back.  Recently, I had a chance to become inspired by it, and create my own version:


I love the Stampin' Up! set, Good Neighbors.  That's what drew me to Paula's card in the first place. She created a lovely, large moon behind her houses, and I riffed on that by sponging lots of dark plum and black inks around the edges.  Speckled stamps from SU's Itty Bitty Backgrounds became stars.

Just so happens that I had these little houses in my box of cast-offs from a project long ago.   I lined them up along a dark 'street', and stamped a Papertrey Ink sentiment there.


A big thanks to Paula for sharing such an awesome creation with all of us.  It's a neat idea!

And thank YOU for coming to see my creation today!  Have a wonderful day!
