Village of Cuteness

At Convention 2011, there were extra evening classes offered, so of course I had to sign up. The class I took was called Village of Cuteness... the perfect name  :)

I had so much fun making these 3 little houses!!
Each 2x4 is painted with 1 layer of acrylic paint, then given a distressed look using the ink spots and flat rubber stamp in the Distressing Essentials kit. The doors are cut from the Wood Sheets. To add color (Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, and More Mustard) just run the "door" over a Classic Ink Pad.
We used a ton of great supplies to decorate the houses:
Card stock: Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard, Baja Breeze, Old Olive Textured
DSP: Pocket Full of Posies and First Edition
Stamps: Good Grid background stamp and Calendar Alphabet & Numbers set
Accessories: Metallic Brads, Silver Brads, Antique Brads, Vintage Trinkets, Trinket Keys, Brights Designer Buttons, Mini Library Clips, Basic Rhinestones, Basic Pearls, Early Espresso Baker's Twine, Mini Vintage Tags
Punches: 1/16" Circle punch, 1/2" Circle punch, Blossom Bouquet punch, Petite Pennants punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack

Here are the individual houses and close-ups...

This is the tallest house at almost 10" high. The roof shingles are made by punching card stock and Designer Series Paper with the 1/2" Circle Punch. They are attached to the roof with Mini Glue Dots.

This house is 8" tall. To make the medallion, use the new Simply Scored Tool to score a 1x12" strip of DSP every 1/4". Then accordion fold the strip. Trim off 1/4" from one end, and adhere the ends together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The DSP for the roof measures 7-1/2" x 1-5/8" and is attached with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The smallest house is 6" tall. To create the door hinges, clip a Mini Library Clip to the Wood Sheet door. Then use your Craft & Rubber Scissors to trim the protruding ends. To attach the DSP roof, use your Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I loved this class so much, that I decided to make a Spooky Village class, which I am teaching tonight. I can't wait!! Check back tomorrow to see pictures of the Spooky Village  :)
