Home Sweet Home

Good Morning!

A quick post today as I'm going  out with friends to Coleman's Warehouse Demo Day.  I expect I'll NEED to buy something!

These are some ATCs I made for Jo's recent ATC swap "Home Sweet Home"

I painted white gesso onto some pieces of cut up cardbord box then stamped the little houses using a Sizzix set .  The houses were cut out, the doors coloured in and the windows paper pieced with glossy accents added.

The rooves  were painted with Distress ink and I added some sparkle to the sun with yellow Sakura pen.

Enjoy your day!


  1. Morning Barb, Have a lovely day and your card is just so sweet. Love the houses.

  4. Fabulous ATCs, the recycled cardboard made me smile. Have a great day out, let us know if anything makes its way home with you! Cara x

  5. I love these cute little houses Barb. I like how they are a set yet differ slightly from each other with the change of colour.
    I must check this site out as I would like to join in with another ATC swap.
