I decided to play with the APG and the Clear Stamp of the Month and create this cottage card. 

Cottages and gardens, soft and flowy dresses, and all things relaxed and slow are really gaining popularity. I understand the appeal!

I used several components of the Pop Up Vignette Home Sweet Home APG of the Month kit to build the cottage, including these pretty little layered flowers. 

The background is the large floral cluster from the Sending Floral Wishes clear stamp of the month, stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with a embossing powder blend I created by mixing gold, silver, and copper embossing powders in a small container. I really like how that turned out! 

I also did some Distress Oxide ink blending on the background with Antique Linen and Tea Dye inks.

Look at that little door knob! Several of the small detail pieces are combined on a single die. I really appreciate that, as I am far less likely to lose them this way!

In this photo, you can see the brick detail embossed on the cottage- this is from a single die that can be placed anywhere on a die cut image.

I also pulled in one of my favorite 5x7" (A7) layering dies: Wistful Windows, to create this delicate frame.

Inside the card, I stamped thte floral cluster in Antique Linen, then added a heat embossed sentiment die cutt with a circle die from last months' Large Die of the Month kit, Colorblock Circles and Stripes. 

So, are you ready to make some cottage cards?! Tell me in the comments below what kind of cottage you dream of! Log cabin, brick, stucco, cedar shingle? Ivy covered, rustic, clean and modern? Or more of a beach vibe?

If you are interested in any of the stuff I used today, check the supply list below,

I love how your custom embossing powder came out. It looked to me like it reflected plum on certain angles. Very cool.

Cool cards!! Thanks for the ideas.

I like the simplicity of the blended flower. I'm going to try that technique when my stamp set arrives in the mail.

Another example of how versatile this die is. I think I would like an ivy covered cottage. Thanks for sharing.
