Be sure to continue on to the next blog hop stop: Irene Silva- DoodleFactory illustrator and cardmaker extraordinaire.
Here are my creations. Let me tell you, this set really brought out the interior decorator in me. I've never used paper piecing much, but these pieces just beg to be stamped on your favorite designer papers and arranged!
First up a classic room setting- I used Scenic Route papers, from a Christmas collection here. The lamp cord was created by cutting a piece of cardstock ultra thin and breaking the fibers in it so it became more string like.Next up, I was dying to use some Basic Grey. These patterns are from the Sugared collection. This one ended up having a bit of a "Mrs. Claus invites you for tea" vibe. The window was made by stamping the decorative panels onto vellum and colouring them with Copics. I used Stamper's Magic Tape to adhere them to the window. You know I couldn't participate in a blog hop without at least one clean and simple type card. I embossed the chandelier, coloured it with Spicas, cut it out, and then placed that on a shimmery textured background.
For my final card, I wanted to show how well previous DoodleFactory creatures fit in with the scenery. Here, I've replaced Numnum's cookies with a bit of wine. He's getting an early start on the anniversary festivities! The papers for this one came from Basic Grey's Two Scoops
