Today I have a photo project to share with you using the new stamp set, Rose Garden Estate, a mini set of 9 image and sentiments, illustrated by Doug Applegate and the fourth in the  Adorable Abode Stamp Series. I picked a frame at Michael's and printed out some pictures of my family in black and white.



I colored the home with Copics, paper pieced the roof, and cut the house out. I mounted it on paper from My Mind's Eye Dilly Dally 6 x 6 pad. The fence is cut out of corrugated paper with the Picket Fence Border Die and the grass from felt with the Grass Border Die. The sentiment is also from the stamp set. 


In a second opening I stamped another sentiment from the stamp set and a button.




Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to stop by all the designers blogs today for lots more inspiration!  I will be back tomorrow with another sneak peek.
