The bed parts took up the whole area under the windows, which was a nice step for the cat to get from the tiny cabinet over there to the left of the windows onto the window sill, but still a nuisance for me.
Ta-da! Gone! Look at that Big Empty! You can also see where I stopped painting, and why I need to finish painting before I put any new storage there. Baby steps!!!
I also stamped all day in a desperate attempt to come up with four projects for next weekend's Stamp Camps. Of the four that I made, this one is my favorite. It is a total CASE of this card; I just changed the colors and the ribbon.
I used the new-to-this-catalog Cottage Wall papers, which means I opened the pack before they retired. ;-) I went in search of a sentiment that would fit in a 1 1/4" square, and ended up with a stamp from a retired Hostess set. Bummer. I'll keep looking this week for a non-retired one, but it's about the idea, right?
I really like how the white-on-white almost makes it look like a raised edge card. I've done the white-on-white before with layers of punched shapes, but never with the main part of the card. Oh, and I hope The Ladies won't mind if the Mellow Moss taffeta ribbon is not an exact match for the Old Olive in the papers, but I like the taffeta better than the twine used in the original. I could use Linen thread, too. WHO KNOWS, I may change this up several times before the weekend!
That's all for this evening. Gotta go finish up the laundry so I can go to work in the morning. Thanks for stopping by!
Perty card! You are bound to find some current sentiment that'll fit! Go Leslie, go Leslie- you can do it.ReplyDelete
You could always put the sleep wrinkle quote on this. On second thought-maybe not. ;)
Oh, you improved on the original! LOVE your version. I think your white on white is "faux dry embossing". This will be a hit!!!ReplyDelete
i LOVE the card. i have that flower set that i just HAD TO HAVE that i have yet to mount...i may have to open it now. what a good idea with the squares too. i might try that with circles.ReplyDelete
Hooray for selling the day bed!!!ReplyDelete
I like the card a lot- the white on white layering is very nice! If you have a long sentiment, you could stamp it in two steps...
