Moving house with Life's Adventure by Stampin' Up

Yesterday I was very excited to share the Stampin' Up retirement lists with you and explained that this year's hostess stamp sets are about to retire too. I showed you a card made with I Like You and today it's the turn of Life's Adventure. Come and see:

The images in this set are fabulously 'sketchy'. For my new home card I used the house, giving it a wash of colour with an aquapainter and ink and cutting it out with my sharp paper snips.

The house was mounted on a hill embossed with the Spring Flowers embossing folder on p.19 of the spring/summer catalogue. I punched circles out of a piece of Soft Sky card stock so that when it was mounted onto the card base it revealed the white card below and formed clouds. Isn't that fun?!

• The exclusive hostess sets are designed to reward customers who place an order of £150 or more. Any time this happens, you'll earn 'credits' which can be 'spent' on these specially-priced hostess sets or anything else you fancy from any current catalogue. The best news is that the order can be your own or a group order, so it's well worth showing a catalogue to your friends and family.

I really enjoyed making the little scene today but I think that cute house would be a bit exposed in real life! There is a happy medium though and I have to say the triffids in our garden are getting out of hand again, climbing the walls of our house trying to get in. A long string of clematis made me jump out of my skin the other day as it slapped against the window in a sudden gust of wind! It needs sorting out but I imagine that gardening with Eva could turn into high comedy...

 I'm so excited about tomorrow's Artisan Design Team blog hop and if you're always looking for ideas for using designer paper, you'll definitely want to join us! See you tomorrow,


  1. Another wonder Vicky, so pretty.I may even pinch the sentiment for a card for my neice who is heading overseas.
    Love the trifid clematis LOL.

  2. I love your exposed sketchy and whimsical house, Vicky! Sorry I've been such a bad bloggie friend! Miss you and I'll try to do better!! Hugs, Darnell
