WM PJ Party Color Inspiration

Challenge 3 is a color challenge
speaking of challenges, those are not the easiest colors to play with.
But, a challenge is a challenge, is a, well you know.
I don't have a lot of WM stamps, so I chose Cottage Home to work with, which I loved the moment I saw it. This stampset just speaks to a grandma that is a collector of all things miniature!
Layers, piecing, picture window, and hand dyed resin blossoms.
I first created a ticking paper with PTI's background basics: Super Stripes and scarlett jewel ink.
Way too bright so softened with vellum.
Cut a picture window from both and framed it with Mat Stack 5. 
Fussy cut 2 topiaries and placed them on top. 
Used an edger die to scallop the bottom of the front.
Some details with embossing and a few rhinestones.


  1. What an awesome little scene!!!

  2. O I love what you've done with this image - the frame and the wrought iron details are lovely as are the vellum overlay and the scalloped bottom. Don't know that I'd have your patience for all the fussy cutting and paper piecing, but it was definitely worth it. WOW !!!

  3. Just a gorgeous scene...
    makes me want to move right in!
    Love how you used the colors...
    perfect! :)

  4. This is wonderful Nancy! love how you've layered and framed the lovely cottage - the scallop edge on the vellum is super!

  5. Oh, my. Goodness! This is just super! What a lot of gorgeous detail!!

  6. Nancy, this is such an enchanting many beautiful details make this card extraordinary!

  7. Nancy looks like you have been one busy girl and enjoying all your new stamps. Love this card too. Now I am off to my craft room.

  8. Nancy, you have been so busy, cutting and adding all those details. Love your outcome and I am glad you went for the challenge although it was not easy.

  9. Nancy I hear you, when I was picking those colours they looked so much easier to work with, then when I saved the image for web, everything changed and I ended up terrified of them!! lol. You did a wonderful job with it though!! Superb little card, I love that adorable frame! Thank you for playing along with us and best of luck in the challenges!
