Welcome to another guest design post for The Shabby Team Room. This week (#184) is all about white!
Here is our inspiration photo:
|The Shabby Tea Room - Week #184 - The White Challenge - Create a card using white/cream and neutrals (black, brown, tan, kraft) plus twine.
Aren't those the cutest fabric pumpkins! And I love the lines on the old style metal garden chair. I have to tell you though that tonight this photo made me think of winter and snow not Autumn and pumpkins. It may be because we have been having weather in the 90's this week and I am ready for a little bit of cold right about now!!! LOL! Yesterday it was so hot that the kids all wanted to play inside in the basement after school to keep cool! Today was a little bit cooler thank goodness! :)
One of my favorite Paper Sweeties stamp sets is called "Christmas Blessings". I love this set because I am a HUGE fan of the Holiday movie: "It's A Wonderful Life". I just LOVE Jimmy Stewart!!! And in this stamp set there is a sentiment that I just love: "Every Time a Bell Rings an Angel Gets Her Wings". I have had it in my head for a while that this would make a wonderful ornament for Christmas time with a matching card. And the fabric of the pumpkins sitting in the chair inspired me to make my project for this week.
Here is what I came up with:
|This photo shows the ornament and the card together.
|This photo shows a close-up of the front of the ornament. I used felt, canvas, twine, an old curtain panel, a piece of an old doily, and some wings with white glitter jingle bells to create the ornament.
I paired the sentiment with some hearts and music note paper to depict love and the music that is made when a bell rings! And of course I had to add some wings with some sparkly white jingle bells covered in glitter and tied on with twine!!! Each time the card is shaken the recipient can be giving out wings! And to give texture to this all white/cream card I embossed the main panel with snowflakes and lightly shaded it with some kraft ink. Then I added my signature "diamond" Stickles as I don't feel that a Holiday card is complete without a little bit of sparkle!!!
Thanks for taking a peek at my ornament and card! I hope you will join us in the tea-room for this lovely "White Challenge". All of the information can be found at The Shabby Tea Room Blog.
