Just sitting ...

Back in the craft room today! below is a the first of the cards I made today - both a definitely different from each other.
I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday, my inspiration comes from Quirky Crafts - no patterned papers ie. make your own patterned paper! And I included a few bits and pieces from the challenge over at Totally Papercrafts - choose a line of 3 (buttons, brads and diecut/punch).

I applied glossy accents to the chair.

my hand made buttons

So for making my own patterned paper I stamped Annabelle Stamps 'background by design 2' flower swirl on off white paper using smoke blue ink and also stamped the brown and olive green paper with another small circle stamp from the same set.

I liked how the scene came together - the table, lamp and chair coming from Hero Arts, the curtains from Ferngully stamps and I have no idea where the window stamp came from!

I even used a circle diecut to make my own buttons and applied glossy accents to them to give them a little bit of shine!

materials - grey cardstock; various Kaisercraft wash papers; Unknown window stamp; Hero Arts 'wish you were here'; Ferngully stamps 'curtain' stamp; Annabelle Stamps 'background by design 2' stamps; Stazon black, Versa Color smoke blue inks; Cuttlebug circle die; grown grossgrain; Inque brads; Ranger glossy accents; natural cord.

Thanks and enjoy your week.
