September 2011 Blog Hop

  Today is Papertrey Ink's monthly blog hop.  Nicole has been using images the past couple of months to get our creative juices flowing.


   To be perfectly honest, I had a hard time with this challenge because I am not really a stripe person. I am more of a polka dot girl.  In addition, I did not like the colors.  My card reflects the stripes on the left side of the image above.

  I used the die that coordinates with the newly released Christmas Label stamp set.

Here's a close-up of the shoe.  The fluffy puff on the shoe is a feather curled up and trimmed. The shoe is popped up with dimensionals.

     If I am not too late, I think I will submit this for Color Throwdown #160 here.
Thanks for looking. 

Supplies: PTI CS: Vintage Cream, Sweet Blush, Dark Chocolate.
Ink: Archival Ink,  Sepia
Stamps: PTI's Polka Dot Basic, Impression Obsession's Marabou Slipper
Die: Christmas Label
Other: feather, dimensionals, CopicRV10

You took it and made it your own, stripes included -- what a FUN card!

Love your card! It made me smile as I recall having a pair of slippers like that back when I was young from Victoria Secret. The cat had a fun time and all the feathers were gone one day. Thanks for the smile.

You were so smart to turn the photo into something you like. I also didn't like the photo, but ended up with a card I like. I love how that new die looks. Perfect for that sentiment.
