Simon Says Stamp and Show............................

...............A HOUSE this week so I decided to use the Residences Art Parts for my creation, perfect for our House theme. The houses have been coloured with Distress Ink Aged Mahogany, Brushed Corduroy and Vintage Photo and stamped with background stamps from Wendy Vecchi Be Inspired...Make Art and the Art Of Making It Merry. Embellishments include Tim's Christmas Muse Tokens, Locket Keys, Hitch Fasteners and Jump Rings.
The background piece and the scallop are both Art Parts from the Sample Pack coloured with Distress Inks. Each of the Art Parts has had Gold Paint Dabber added to the edges.
I have added a rusty tree from my stash along with one of Tim's KEYHOLE's from the Idea-ology range. I have also made a door nob from a Hitch Fastener along with a small brad for the other door nob. I have added JOY to the top of my piece added to Jump Rings and adhered with Glossy Accents.
Christmas Greetings has been added to one of my windows cut from the Christmas Memories Kraft Resist Paper Stash along with two Christmas Muse Tokens . To complete I have added a rusty heart and snowflake.

Please pop over to the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog and take a look at my fellow team members they have created some inspirational projects and remember there is also the chance to win a $50 prize from Simon Says Stamp.  I always look forward to seeing your creations each week.


Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment, much appreciated.  Enjoy your week. Tracy x x

Love this to bits, Tracy! The colors and the wonderful plaid stamp really appeal to me. It has such a lovely country feel to it - very rustic Christmas. The rusty tree is the perfect finishing touch!

Have a great week!
