Rerun No. 4 | This Awesome House


Welcome lovelies to our next monthly Rerun!

Each Rerun will provide plenty of inspiration focusing upon a featured product, a month-long sale on the featured product and a challenge.


For our fourth Rerun we are concentrating on This Awesome House.  This Awesome House focuses upon a large stately house that can be customized for different occasions and includes a draping banner and sentiments!  Pair it with Moonlight for Halloween or Happy Christmas for Christmas.

Now on to the cards!


I went a little wild with color for my card this time around!  This house may be elegant, but it can also go funky and fun.


This card started out with an idea which did not go as planned.  I began by stamping the round solid balloons from The Party in different colors by Hero Arts.  I wasn't loving how I was cutting them out so I pulled out a 1" circle punch and punched them out.  Not sure what the heck I was doing with the circles I set them aside thinking they may go with another project entirely.

I stamped the house in Versamark on a piece of watercolor paper and then embossed it with white embossing powder.  I then swooshed the panel in picked raspberry Tim Holtz Distress Ink that I had smeared onto my craft sheet and sprayed with a little water.  Next was festive berries and then ripe persimmon.  With a water brush I filled in any white spaces with picked raspberry. I sprinkled water over the entire panel.  I used my craft knife and cut out the house from the panel being careful not to cut too much out of the panel.  I adhered the house with dimensional foam adhesive onto a piece of white cardstock cut using the smaller panel from Essentials: Audrey Cutaways.

I colored a piece of white cardstock with some turquoise ink and then stamped the banner over it along with the sentiment.  I cut it out and distressed the edges with the ink and then adhered it to the house using dimensional foam adhesive.

On the watercolored panel with the hole where the house was I added the colored circled and placed the white panel over the opening with dimensional foam adhesive.  Last I adhered everything to a white card base.


Wait until you see what Gayatri, Heather and Lydia did with This Awesome House!
