WMSC57... peachy : )

Saturday, July 23, 2011

Hi! I'm still so thrilled from yesterday, I'm delighted to be in the Top 10 of the Gallery Idol Competition, thank you so much if you voted for me, I'm so grateful!! In this round the theme is 'Fabric meets Paper', I've no idea what to do yet, I've just done some brainstorming, waiting for inspiration to strike!! On to today's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge, here's this week's sketch, created by the talented Julia.

I went for a peach, green and cream color scheme this time, I love the warm tones of peach. I dug out my Victorian Frippery set by Waltzingmouse Stamps, (with all the new releases, I forget about the old favorites sometimes!) Stamped the border in a mix of VersaMagic Persimmon and Pink Grapefruit.

The sweet flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The sentiment is from Say it Loud by Waltzingmouse Stamps. I also used Frame-It to stamp the border around the Butterfly Garden paper (Pink Paislee). I also stamped a little music sheet in Memento Pear Tart using Musical Backgrounds.

I added a little crochet lace under the flowers and a scrunchy seam binding bow. Don't forget to check out the rest of the creations from the talented DT at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge and play along to be in with a chance of winning a stamp set of your choice.

Ok, I'm off to introduce fabric to paper!! ; ) Thankfully I have all day today to create something, Niall's taken Isabelle to visit her cousin Abi. She'll have a great time!! Fingers crossed inspiration comes my way!! Have a wonderful weekend!

  15. Beautiful card: it's done in my favorite colors, and it's so feminine!! it couldn't get better!! For your ideas for fabric on your cards, you can make flowers out of fabric. Take a long strip, about 2" wide, 10 to 20" long. fold it in half so it is now 1"wide. run a basting stitch along the raw (cut) edge. Pull one of the threads (usually the bottom thread works best) and it will gather up. Roll it up and you will have a flower. You don't have to do this, but it's just an idea. If I think of anything else I'll let you know. GOOD LUCK!!! Hugs :-)

  16. Such a delicate, beautiful looking card. Love the row of roses!
