Today I have two cards featuring some of my absolute N&T favorites: Warm Winter Scene cover plate die, Mail Background stamp, Heart Duo stencil and Typed Sentiments.

For my first card, I die cut the Warm Winter Scene from a piece of white cardstock, and trimmed off the bottom row of the houses. These are the cutest houses ever, don’t you think? It’s a winter scene die, but it can be used all year round for so many occasions! I saved the houses for later, as for this card I only needed the negative.

Then I stamped the Mail background stamp on an A2 size panel, and used my distress inks to tone part of the panel that will be covered by the die-cut.  That’s pretty much it. I foam mounted my row of houses and added the sentiment. It’s from Lovely Lotus set and seemed perfect for this card. My second card is again clean and simple. I created the background with the Heart Duo stencil and some distress inks in rainbow colors… of course!

I used the houses I had die-cut for the first card, and adhered them onto foam squares. For the sentiment I used the Typed Sentiments set which is definitely a must-have! So many great sentiments in typewriter font which looks so cool and will fit any style!

Thank you for spending time with me! I hope you like my ideas and are inspired to get crafty! Have a great day and find time for something that makes you happy!
