It's time for another ODBD Shining Light Color Challenge and I am so excited to show you the new Dies and coordinating stamp set!!! I am just squealing with delight over these!!! I made this card three weeks ago and I have had a very difficult time keeping quiet about it!!! I just love Victorian architecture and antiques so this was a real joy to create! This project shows off the the era down to the decorative gable, awning and iron fence! Before I give you the directions on how to make this, let me tell you about the details of the the challenge and prize!

Here are the new dies and stamp set that I used.

Miscellaneous: Tim Holtz Brick Embossing Folder, Dimensional Foam Tape, Fine point two way glue pen.

Make a card base from the bristol paper that measures 4 1/2 x 11 and score at 5 1/2 inches.
Emboss a 4 1/4 by 5 1/4 piece of Blush Blossom card stock and lightly sponge the brick with blush blossom and garden green ink to add interest and depth.
Stamp sentiment in garden green on white card stock.
Die cut the gate, two fence panels, flowers, window, window box, corner and sentiment from white card stock.
Die cut flowers in blush blossom card stock.
Die cut flowers, awning and shutters in green card stock.
Sponge ink on awning, shutters, flowers, gate, window box and sentiment using the photo as your guide for ink colors.
Cut a rectangle of small print paper from the Blushing Rose Collection and back the window.
Score the awning across the straight end glue behind window.
Crease the front end of the awning and glue window front to the window frame.
Trace the corner die cut onto cameo coral card stock and cut out slightly smaller than the tracing lines.
Glue the tracing and the corner together.
Glue the corner to the top of the embossed card stock for the shape of a house.
Glue the window down and center left to right.
Glue down the two shutters.
Glue the green flowers to the back of the window box.
Cut out the flowers from the white and blush blossom card stock flower die cuts.
Glue them to the green flower base and alternate colors. You will have enough flowers to make a second set of flowers for another project.
Glue the window box to the windowsill.
Cut the tabs from the fence die cuts and glue together by overlapping the each piece of the end post.
Cut the fence posts off of the gate and glue onto each end of the fence. You will have to shorten the very end of each side of the fence so that it does not show above the large gate fence posts that you are adding on top of the fence.
Add foam tape to the back of the large posts and in the center of the fence.
Glue down the card front to the card base and clip the top two corners of the card base so it does not protrude above the roof of the house. Leave about 1/8 inch white border along the bottom.
Adhere the fence to the card front.
Add foam tape to the back of the sentiment and adhere to the center of fence. This will cover the foam tape used on the center of the fence.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Oh, Paula, you are amazing! I LOVE this sweet little house, and the roof is amazing. It reminds me of the houses in Cape May, New Jersey, that have what they call gingerbread as trim. It's absolutely darling, and I love the detail you put in all your work! Stunning, my friend! Hugs!

This card is gorgeous! I love the house look you created. Great color palette, too. I don't have the same supplies, but I'm definitely pinning this for future reference, to see if I can do something similar with what I've got. Thanks for the inspiration! ~ Andrea
