Stampin’ Up’s sale-a-bration period will be ending March 31, 2010 so I wanted to highlight one of the free sets you can get with a $50 order. The house in this scene is from the Stampin’ Up, Sale-a-bration set “Good Neighbors”. This is a set that I am keeping my fingers crossed, hoping to see it in a future Stampin’ Up Catalog. Hello, anyone out there hearing me, lol.
Anyway, I decided to team it up with the owl and tree stamp from the Stampin’ Up set “House of Haunts”. I’m getting some mileage of out this stamp.
This tutorial also highlights how to make a window frame for your scene. Hope you enjoy it.
Let’s get started.. … . . . . .

Brayered Tempting Turquoise ink at the bottom of a 3.5″ square piece of Whisper White card stock.
Brayered Orchid Opulence at the top of the card stock.
Brayered Elegant Eggplant at the top of the card stock, not covering up the Orchid Opulence ink entirely.
Stamped the house using Basic Gray ink.
Using a Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement, stamped the roof using Elegant Eggplant ink.
Sponged Old Olive ink at the bottom of the card stock.
Ripped a post it note and sponged Always Artichoke ink at the post it note edge to create hills.
Colored over the roof, chimneys and windows of the house with a Sahara Sand marker.
Added Basic Black marker to the bottom of the house for bushes and colored the house in with a White Gel pen.
Stamped the Tree/Owl stamp using Basic Black ink.
Added white gel pen highlights to the owl and tree. Also added a few white gel pen dots in the area below the tree.
Added Summer Sun marker to the windows and the owl’s eyes.
Added two Sahara Sand panels, one Whisper White panel and One Basic Black panel.
Added Sahara Sand Marker to the Sahara Sand panels, using the brush end. Also added Basic Black marker to the Sahara Sand panels, not covering the Sahara sand marker completely. This gives you an illusion of a shadow.
Grunged up the Window frame by sponging Sahara Sand ink at the top and right sides of the Whisper White Panel.
Sponged Basic Black ink at the top and right sides of the Whisper White panel, not covering the Sahara Sand ink entirely.
Using a ruler, drew lines from the main image panel corners to the corners of the Whisper White panel.
Here is the finished project measuring 5.5″ square.
May your day be filled with peace and love.
