Christmas in July Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamp It Groups Christmas in July Blog Hop.  Whether you started with my blog or "hopped" over from one of my teammate’s blogs, I am happy you stopped by!
Oh my gosh, this was such a fun card to make!!  I started out thinking I would just make the front door with a wreath and maybe a bush and call it good.  But after I started messing with the At Home coordinating framelits dies, I couldn't stop adding things to the card.  There was even a framelit to make a window in the door.  Love it!!
Using the coordinating framelits dies really made this card easy. I decided since I could make the door open, I really needed to add a Christmas tree.  The tree is from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set and is stamped in the newly released Tranquil Tide ink.  I added a Gold Metallic Enamel Star on the top of the tree.  The Real Red "ornaments" are the smaller rounds from the Brights Enamel Shapes. 
All of the die cuts are from the At Home with You stamp set and were stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, cut out with the At Home framelits dies and then colored with Stampin' Write markers.
To make the bricks for the house siding, I used the Brick Pattern Party Mask along with Embossing Paste, both are new products with Stampin' Up! The Embossing Paste is so easy to use, I placed a small amount of paste onto my silicone sheet, added a drop of Smoky Slate re-inker and mixed it together.  Next, I smoothed it onto the mask, which I had secured in place over the Whisper White front panel, using one of the new Palette knives.  Once the paste was all smoothed on, I removed the mask and let it dry for a few minutes. To make the "porch", I used a small piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.  The Merry Christmas doormat was made with Crumb Cake cardstock.  The presents around the bottom of the tree were stamped on to Whisper White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and the At Home with You stamp set.  I then cut out the presents using the coordinating At Home framelits die and colored them using Stampin' Write markers.
