Pieced Chair & Lamp

i just love this paper from kim's store. it is by Bo Bunny called winter whisper. i stamped the chair & lamp on the brown paper because i thought it looked like a marbled paint technique some have on their walls. then i paper pieced the chair and lampshade with the plaid and snowflake papers.

i am stuck on the buttons and snowflakes too. also the ribbon is velvet, just a little extra texture for the card.

here is another shot of the "room". i also used A Muse ovals to make a faux rug for under the chair/lamp.
inks: stazon timber brown, cats eye chalk brown
stamps: A Muse chair & lamp, just saying hello, ovals mini set

Tote Tags

i have been thinking about my own tags for the totes. i did a swap for a su set called stamp of authenticity. so i won't be able to do many of these. but i think they are cute.

Lavender Edward

this is a little 3 inch card. i was playing with the creative impressions snowflakes and realized one had a lavender hue when put on purple paper. am also using up some scraps of black chipboard.

Let It Snow!

this is kim's new paper, by Bo Bunny called winter whisper. i haven't sewed on a card in a while, and thought this one needed it. i am still in love with buttons, so i used one under the creative impressions medium snowflake and silver snowflake brad. i kinda like the wavy banner, dave would have liked it better if it wasn't crooked.

Kissing Couple

i know i have done this one before, in a different color, but i love it so much. when i saw this paper at kim's store, serendipity,(19 s main st, henderson, ky) i immediately thought of the girl's skirt. i am in love with buttons lately. can you tell?
this is one of my annual anniversary cards(meaning i find a card i love so much, i mass produce it for a year's worth of anniversary cards for my friends) you may have it in another color.

Flower Sketch

this is another i did for kim's store. i used one of her dollar stamps, called flower sketch. i used the brown cat's eye chalk ink to sponge the edge of the flower, then i attached it to the ric rac ribbon with a button and embroidery floss. the background paper has glitter already on it.
dave says it is too busy for him. but i really didn't add that much, it is just the paper.

Donald & Edward - Together Again

dave and i are home sick today, at least it is not snowing here. but i played with the snowmen brothers. i think they are too cute.
the black paper is a glitter paper, and i used my new swiss dots on my cuttlebug to make a snow look on the background and also on edward and the "you're cool". i guess it wasn't snowing anymore on donald.
i used my aqua pen to color them, i think the chalk inks did very well. i am not used to using them, yet.
anyway this is for kim's store, serendipity, in henderson, ky(19 s main st).
