Hello crafty friends and welcome to The Shabby Tea Room #191 - 'Shabby Fall Party'! This week we are to be inspired by the gorgeous photo above and include a BANNER, CUPCAKE/CAKE AND ORANGE/YELLOW in our designs!
I am a HUGE fan of banners, so this card was so much fun for me to create!I used the Banner Wishes, You Are Amazing and You Make Me Smile stamp sets from Paper Sweeties to create the pennants and sentiments on my banner. The cupcake is a sticker from Doodlebug and the seam binding, gingham washi tape and candy dots are from SU!Be sure to hop on over to the Tea Room to check out the amazing inspiration from the rest of the Shabby Girls ... and then I hope you'll have time to play along with our 'Shabby Fall Party' challenge this week for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Paper Sweeties boutique!
Inspiration found at these awesome challenges: Ribbon Girl November Challenge – stripes; There She Goes #232 – dots & stripes; Catered Crop – washi tape; Cupcake Inspirations #235 – fall leaves/colors
I found so much inspiration in this week's photo at CASE Study, that I made two cards! The delicious fresh baked dessert -- the sweet banner -- the yummy cherries ... oh my, smitten I tell ya'! This is one of my favorite color combos too -- it feels so warm, homespun and inviting to me!
I included a darling sparkly cake sticker from Doodlebug, some hand tea-stained hem tape from my sewing basket and some handmade clay cherries!Pretty and sparkly polka dots and stripes ... a sweet paper doilie peeking out from behind ... and some machine zig zag stitching complete this fun little card!I used these stamp sets from Paper Sweeties: Banner Wishes and Happy Wishes!
Inspired by these fun challenges: CASE Study #160 - inspo photo; Simon Says Stamp - dotty; Moxie Fab World - stickers & tape; Moxie Fab World - general craft supplies (hem tape); Ribbon Girl - October/sparkly; Pile it On #40 - favorite color (red/pink); Fusion #19 - sketch & pink!
