Couch friends

Ok, so I know this isn't a chair, but I really like that sentiment!
Notice the couch cushions? I stamped them again on an angle so the couch would look more 3D.
I had fun stamping the BG with BB: Retro in white and then adding the EE dots with a Copic to pull in the darker blue color. Rug is embossed with white e.p. and I added some simple stiching to adhere the scallops at the bottom for the sentiment.
Hope you have a wonderful Sunday. I'm keeping this short because I have a lot to do, so I'll be back tomorrow with more chatter.

Thanks for stopping by!

Really cute Dana! I am really loving this set lately too. There are so many possibilities. I love the pp you chose for the couch and that glittery rug is great! Well done!

Dana,
The more I see projects with this the more I want it. So cute and I totally picked up on the cushions. Great job!!

Sherry said...

LOVE it! Love the couch pattern. I am going to have to cave and get this set.

Kara said...

Really great colors! Love the lamp behind the couch. Just have to say that A Prayer for Owen Meany is one of my all time favorites! I noticed you likes Tom Robbins, have you read Jitterbug Perfume? That's another one in my top 3:) Can't wait to read some of the others on your list that I haven't read yet!!

This is great. I really like the label behind the "chair" and the way you used the ribbon/button to balance the top of the card.

Amy said...

I love how you put the "chair" on the nestie shape and put the lamp behind it!! Cool idea to make the cushions like that! And I'm going to have to start thinking out of the box when it comes to my background sets/pattern papers......I LOVE what you've been doing with them! Love the EE dot!

Can I come to your house and play? You have the BEST stuff! :) This card is so smart. I love how the couch fits perfectly inside of your die cut... and the details with the paper piecing --- I LOVE it when people are willing to spend the extra time to make it over-the-top-awesome! LOVE the bg too. All of it rocks!
