My Other Creations: House with AALL & Create's Gabriel

This week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is to make anything but a card.  I whipped out my Tim Holtz Tiny Houses die and created this 3D abode featuring a quirky little character named Gabriel by AALL & Create.

I started by cutting out the house pieces with my Sizzix Big Shot and stamped them with AALL & Create's Quirky Circles stamp.  Once stamped, I cut some patterned paper into circular shapes and glued them inside the circles.

I colored my house with Dylusions acrylic paint and assembled it.  I stamped, colored and fussy-cut Gabriel out and also cut a small section of a city skyline.  I attached the skyline to the house with some foam squares to pop it out a bit and made Gabriel pop out even more by gluing him to a small wooden spool and gluing the other end of the spool to the house.  The last step was to glue the "Be Brave" sentiment (a Tim Holtz Quote Chip) onto Gabriel.
