Hello Hello

It is Design Team Challenge time with the Gourmet Rubber Stamps team!  This month we were challenged to find a special piece of home decor and let it inspire our card.  Here is the pillow I chose:

By itself, it's just a pillow from Pier 1 with an awesome pattern.  But to me it is so much more.  It belonged to my grandmother, and I love dearly.  When I was wandering around looking for inspiration I spotted these pillows an just knew I had to ink up the bird from Swingin' Spring, a recent Diner's Set.

The pattern on my Stella Rose paper was busy, so I tried to keep everything else fairly simple.  I stamped and fussy cut the birds twice (because there are two on the pillow).  I added some lace tape, and couldn't resist covering the birds with Cotton Candy and Icicle Stickles.  Three small dots of White Opal Liquid Pearls are in the upper corner, as well. You can pick up all of these goodies over at i {heart} papers - including the stamps!  More My Mind's Eye paper is on the way!

Check out my teammates' blogs to see how what inspired them for this challenge:

Stamps: Swingin' Spring (Gourmet Rubber Stamps)
Card Stock: Candlelight Swiss Dot (Bazzill); Kraft (Canvas Corp)
Patterned Paper: Stella Rose (My Mind's Eye)
Ink: Memento Espresso Truffle (Tsukineko)
Accessories: White Lace Tape (Love My Tapes), Icicle & Cotton Candy Stickles (Ranger)

Pin It
