I made this one using the fun Basic Grey Lime Rickey/Liquid Candy designer paper for the castle panels. The base is a green Bazzill card stock. The knight is from Lizzie Anne Designs and the trees and sentiment are from two different Cornish Heritage Farms sets - Making the Grade and Forest Friendzy. I adhered a tree on each side of the castle as well as a hedgehog or mushroom.
These are all the stampings I used on the castle and the card below.
Here is a card I made to go along with the castle - using the same stamps. I used the Forest Branches Cuttlebug folder on the back panel and a Labels Four Nestability to cut the piece of designer paper. All the images are colored with Copics. I used the small oval Stampin Up punch for the sentiment on the castle. For the card sentiment I juse used the corner rounder on one end and cut out a triangle on the other end. Everything is popped up on foam dimensionals.
I made this second castle a little more sedate. I thought it would be a fun Welcome to your New Home gift with some treats tucked inside. The sentiment is from Amuse and says "May your house always be too small to hold all your friends." Irish Proverb
The uses for this cute castle are limitless - wouldn't it be fun in pink and purples with a princess stamp for a little girls b'day? And they aren't as hard to make as they look - Claire goes through each step with pictures and written descriptions. I made one up with computer paper first just to be sure I understood each step - that way I didn't waste good card stock in the learning process!
This is one of our cats, Boo, sitting on the favorite pet sofa by the picture window - watching Kent as he makes his way to the door!
Thanks for coming by today!
