Stamp TV CSS Hop
Welcome to another fun Stamp TV CSS Alumni blog hop. This time we have a great inspiration photo (first one :) to work with.
If you are following along the hop then you should have come to me from Sharri - and I am sure she had sweet stuff for you!!!
Remember to leave lots of sweet comments laong the way as we will be drawing for a HUGE grab bag of Gina K stamps from all those who comment.
Personally I loved this photo - so much to chose from!!!! I first spotted the pillow and the big vase both with old fashioned redwork on them (not sure if that is what its called....) and then I liked the quilt and the vase of flowers.....
For the redwork I used neenah desert storm with the lace doilly from 'Nana's Needlework' stamped onit in red for a background. (I had intended a 4X6 card but it kinda grew....)
Next I used the quilt and shelf - also from the same set -colored with copics and cut out with a Spellbinders label die.
As I said my card grew to 5X7 because I wanted more of my quilt to show and I didn't want to cut off any of my vase and flowers - so I just made the card bigger :). I couldn't decide what phrase to use so I added a row of pearls instead and some to the corners too.
All for the evening - the teenagers are both out and about this friday evening and the DH is watching
Have a great weekend!!!!
