Hello and welcome to my blog!
I'm a wife of over 20 years to my supportive husband Dan and mother to our three children ages 18, 15 & 6. Rubber stamping and card making are my creative outlet and help to keep me sane but I also enjoy scrapbooking from time to time, reading historical fiction/historical romance novels and watercolor painting as well as spending time with family and friends. I hope you enjoy the projects I share here on my blog.
Hello and welcome! Today is the Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop, the inspiration for this month's hop is the photo of these pretty pillows below.
As much as I wish I had the blue green color in these pillows, I don't (need to add that with my next order) so I went with what I had. There is so much great texture and pattern in this photo but as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to use the PTI stamp set Rosie Posie as my main image. I started out with a taken with teal card base, then added a white panel. Then I added a panel of cool Caribbean which I stamped using the rose and leaf stamps from the set to give the look of the larger pillow. I used some My Mind's Eye yellow and white check designer paper and layered that with some yellow diecut scallops and topped it off with some velvet ribbon to give the look of the ruffled yellow pillow from the inspiration photo. And finally I used a circle for my main image (like the small circle pillow) and popped the yellow rose, added my banner sentiment, button and bling and I was good to go.
