Inspired By A Lamp
Today I created a card for two challenges. The first challenge is the Photo Inspiration Challenge over on the Basic Grey Challenges blog. Isn't the color combination just stunning in this living room? While scanning the scene for some more inspiration, I saw the lamp sitting over on the table and instantly knew what stamp set I was going to use for my card - Gina K. Designs Lovely Shelf by Nina Brackett. Nina's set has the cutest little lamp image :) Well, now all I needed was a layout for my card, and the Stamp TV Sketch Challenge designed by Jennie Harper was perfect!
For my card, I used Gina K's Pure Luxury card stock in Soft Sand and designer paper from Basic Grey - Nook & Pantry. For the center panel, I cut the lace out from one of the sheets of designer paper. To create the lamp, I stamped onto the aqua paper, and then paper pieced the base and shade. I popped up the shade using a pop dot, and decorated the trim using tiny pearls. The ovals were created using my pink and purple Marvy Uchida punches, and I paper pierced around the scalloped edge. All stamping and sponging was done using SU! Close to Cocoa. A few more pearls were added to opposite corners to finish my project.
I also wanted to share with all of you that my Punny Pear card was in the Customer Sunday Spotlight over on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog today. I am so flattered :) You can check out the post by clicking here.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
