Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge is to make a project about the home to reference "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord." Joshua 24:15. Additional challenges for me were to use a mix of pattern paper, sewing, and stamping on patterns after reading an article by one of my favorite designers Julia Stainton. Julia's great article is over at Ellen Hutson's. This oversized easel card (8 1/2 x 5 1/2) has as the "stopper" a cuttlebug textured throw rug which would not be complete without a little kitty and a ball of yarn. I have been fussing with this project for several days and while rummaging around in my studio I was delighted to discover a stamp I didn't know I had: Joshua 24:15 in the frame. Ta Dah! -- I was then inspired! So I cast aside all the ribbons and embellies I had been working with in favor of making just a comfortable little home spot. Some of the details: the pillows and kitty are on dimensionals, the frame has diamond glaze for the glass in the frame, and the sofa doiley is touched with glitter. Speaking of inspiration, I encourage you to visit the challenge spot to view all the creativity from the design team members -- Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge. And, speaking of kitties, when I went outside to photograph this card -- look who was on the roof supervising:
Stamps: Hero Arts, G-rated, Darcie, Stampendous, Background (stripes) unknown
Art Institute Glitter, Diamond Glaze, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
watercolor pencils, prismacolor markers
Lots of fussing around time
Thanks so much for stopping by, please let me know what you think.
