NEW House Builder Card with Haunted House Add On | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello friends!  I'm on the blog at Honey Bee Stamps today to share two cards using these awesome new House Builder Card Base Honey Cuts and the Haunted House Add On.  The House Builder, as well as the Haunted House Add On, is SO fun to create a unique card with.  Every last detail is there to enable to you customize your house the way you'd like!

This first card is what I made right after I got the House Builder Honey Cuts.  I wanted to play around and see how all of the pieces worked together.  Except for the main house piece and roof, all of the other pieces are made with scraps of cardstock that I've saved.  Anyone else have a drawer full of scraps like me?  Haha!  

I wanted some texture/dimension on the roof and after pondering what to do for a bit, I remembered a Fiskars paper crimper tucked away in a drawer, long unused!  I die cut the roof and ran it through the paper crimper--just right!  For the main house section I used a round-tipped stylus and my Scor-Board to add in lines for a wood panel look.  If you want to create a house shaped card like I did, you will need to always cut two of the main house piece.

See the top edge of the roof in the photo above?  That is the hinge that I added for another detail element on the roof.  This hinge is intended to be used on the inside as I did on my second card below.  I think it works great either way!

The details are amazing!  Just look at that door knob!  I cut it out of some silver mirror paper and used Ranger Multi-Matte Medium to adhere the little pieces.  I did add some acetate to the windows for a more realistic look.  

This next card features the House Builder along with the Halloween House Add On.  Just like the House Builder set, all of the adorable detailed dies help to create a fun and spooky house.  You just need the main House die and the hinge from the House Builder set to create a Halloween House.

I used die cut the house from gray cardstock and used Weathered Wood and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks to add smudges here and there to age the house.  I also used some white pigment ink.  The Halloween Add On has its own roof that embosses the lines you see in it.  I die cut it and the other sparkly elements from some adhesive-backed glitter foam.  I do love me some sparkle!!  These dies cut the foam like butter!!  

The ghosts are cut from some regular glitter paper.  After I die cut the wood planks and tree, I used a couple of brown Copic markers to add a bit more detail.  I also added tiny drops of Nuvo Crystal Drops on the planks where nails would be.

In the next photo you can see where I used the hinge on the inside.  I stamped a sentiment from the new Faboolous Sentiments in Versamark and heat embossed it in white embossing powder.

Both of these sets are SO fun and you are only limited by your imagination as to what your house will look like!  You can use colored paper to die cut the shapes.  Or, you can cut them from white paper and color them with markers or inks.  

So, what kind of house will you create?  I can't wait to see!  Thank you so much for stopping by!  Carol:)
