Tarheel Stamper - Halloween Houses on a Hill

Not sure if someone has done this before with Stampin' Up!'s Ornament punch, but when I was cutting pieces for a Christmas Card Camp, I looked at the piece I had left over and thought this looks like funky houses on a hill.  So I decided to make a Halloween card with a Basic Black strip.  I love the way it turned out.  It was mailed to my NC Demo Monday Mailer.  Hope she likes it.  I really don't do Halloween, but just loved the look of this!  Used my brayer also!  Fun card to make!  I have pdf instructions to make the card and punched shapes on Scribd here.

 Teeny Tiny Wishes – Item# 118732 (wm $36.95)

Have a wonderful day,
Tammy aka Tarheel Stamper

You are so darn clever! It took me a second there to figure out how you did the punching, but it is so brilliant!! Thanks for sharing :D

Tammy- you are so clever! (oops...I just realized the first poster said the same thing)
You are a genius! What an excellent use for the negative space!
and it's a great card, too

I loved this idea so much! It inspired me to create my own roof top card and I wanted to share it with you...
Thanks again for the inspiration!
