Hey, look at me! I made a card! *smile*
I was looking forward to the weekend so much, thinking I would get lots of crafting done. Too bad my mojo booked a vacation. I had the hardest time getting anything to work on paper, but I finally finished a card for the current Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World:
This shouldn't have been so difficult for me. After all, these colors were practically screaming my name!
Enough complaining. How about some details? I started with an Aqua Mist card base, which I stamped and heat embossed with a frame from the Mat Stack 1 collection and a sentiment from WPlus9's Very Vintage Greetings. The fonts in this set are divine! The frame is meant to reflect the color and shape of the chair back in the photo. The whole panel was then debossed using PTI's Linen & Canvas impression plate.
As an ode to the green and white pattern on the chair, I die cut two strips of Victorian Lace border from New Leaf cardstock and adhered them to a strip of white. I love the graphic pattern that results. The strip is layered over Dark Chocolate cardstock embossed with woodgrain, like the dark brown table in the photo.
To pull in the botanical print on the pillow, I stamped a morning glory from Very Vintage Greetings and colored it with Copics, then cut it out and popped it up on foam dots.

I hope to settle into more of a routine this week that involves some stamping time! It's so hard to get in the groove after not doing it for several days. Does that happen to you?
Thanks for stopping by, my friends! Have a great start to your week!
