New Release at Imagine That! Digis by Kris

Today there are five new sets of wonderful images being released on the Imagine That! Digis by Kris site, and a Giveaway too! You can find all the details on the blog.

In view of the fact that we are in the process of buying a new house and will be moving at some point over the summer, when my husband retires from the ministry, I asked Kris if she was planning any New Home or Moving House sets and she very kindly came up with a couple. I have chosen to go with the House one this time.

Materials used:  SAM_2603(watermarked)
Imagine That! Digis by Kris – House Sold
acrylic New Home stamp from stash
X-Press It blending card
pale green card
black card
silver letter and number stickers
Copic pens
white A5 card blank

I have used two images to make my card, cutting out the front of the second image and using sticky foam pads to mount it over the base image.

I only had silver or gold letter and number stickers and wanted black so I coloured silver stickers with a black Copic pen. The house number is the same as the house we are buying!

I chose to use the pale green colouring for the house shutters, door and frame because it brought to mind one of my favourite Chris de Burgh songs ‘Satin Green Shutters‘. Even though our new house does not have shutters I am sure that it is where we will put our love and our hearts and make some more special memories through the years, although I think any children will be grandchildren!

Thank you for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    Hi Pippa 🙂 You did such a fabulous job on this card – with cutting out and popping up just the front of the house really gave that dimension it needed. So neat that you guys found a house already to move into this summer 🙂 I had never heard of that song green shutters til you sent me the link – neat! 🙂 Love your card, thanks so much and God’s blessings on you as you pack and move soon! xKris
