This card’s focal image is the Cozy Cottage stamp set which is a hostess set from the Occasions catalogue. The beginner card has been stamped in Chocolate Chip ink on Whisper White cardstock. I’ve layered the image on Coffee Break DSP on a Chocolate Chip Card base.

I stepped up the next card by adding some colour using sponge daubers. I’ve also sponged around the image in Soft Suede. 

The image from Eclectic Expressions stamp set creates some lovely clouds in Soft Sky which has been stamped off.

For the devoted crafter, I’ve stamped the image on Shimmery White cardstock, adding extra colour and depth. The brick fence has been stamped a second time, fussy cut and layered.

I’ve also added the 2 chairs to create the scene. A multi-layered linen thread bow and some wooden heart embellishments complete this card.
