Shabby Chic


 
Hi Friends and Stampers!
 
Welcome to a NEW Challenge over at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog! This week we are asking you to show us your Shabby Chic or Vintage Designs.  The Design Team would like to Thank The Paper Shelter for providing us with fabulous images and they are sponsoring us this week, so it's double the prize!
 


 
 
You know at first I was a little freaked out about Shabby Chic.  I certainly love it and admire many designers who excel in this style, but I hadn't ventured out in that direction...yet.  I had to go to my "go-to" Shabby Chic expert's blog, Iralmaija, to get some inspiration, tips and ideas, lol.  Not that there are not many experts, but this was the one that was in my in-box at the time, lol.  And I do love her beautiful designs.    but I will confess, someone needed to tell me to step away from the Walnut Stain, lol.  You can not see the glimmer shimmer behind the gal, but the circle die-cut is shimmery.  So find some inspiration and go for it!  Join us! 
 
One of the many things I love about being a Designer for Loves Rubberstamps is that it pushes me to go further, try new things and of course, the Great Products and Sponsors.  We will be having a Design Team Call again in January and we are looking at All styles and All entrees equally.  So you do not have to be a well known Rock Star or do super intricate projects to qualify.  Just think about it for now and keep your eyes peeled for the DT call and of course, I will let you know here as well. In the meantime, check out what NEW ITEMS Laura has added to the store! 
 
I am using Karen's SSS this week:


 
 
Thanks for Looking and for your kind Comments!

Excuse me while I pick my jaw up from the floor...Holly this is GORGEOUS! You nailed the shabby chic!! I think you should try it more often - the colors, the details - everything is stunning! And IMHO you can never have TOO much Walnut Stain - LOL - I LOVE that stuff and sponge everything with it - :D My projects look naked without it I think - LOL!
