Welcome Home House

Hello Everyone
...
My May classes featured a birdhouse, which you can find if you scroll down my blog. (The original design was inspired by a Stamp with Us! project). While I was making up my sample, I decided to make another version just for fun. Even though much of my stamping is for workshops and classes, sometimes I try to make time to make something just 'cause I want to - and this was one of those days!
...
I decided to make a brick house with a slate room - which would make a sweet Welcome to you New Home gift or a Welcome Home gift. You could put cookies or 'We Have Moved' cards inside.
...
First I used really rust cardstock to make the house. The bricks were done in ruby red, drawn in with a black marker. The front door and roof were done in basic grey and the windows - of course - were made with window sheet from Stampin' Up! I also 'hung' DSP paper curtains in the windows. The front door knob is a silver brad. Cuuuuute!
...

...

I made the roof by punching strips of grey cardstock using the scallop border punch. I daubed the edges in basic grey ink to add some dimension to my roof tiles.
...
I hope you like my 'just for me' project!
