Papertrey Ink August Blog Hop

Here is the inspiration photo for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop this month:

Things about the photo that attracted me were the background pattern inside the case, those little pink flowers, and the fabrics – which reminded me of muslin fabric.  The colors I liked were the cream, pink, red and green, which I interpreted as Vintage Cream, Raspberry Fizz, Pure Poppy, and Simply Chartreuse.

Here is my creation:

I purchased the Guide Lines stamp set a few months ago, and I’ve been wanting to give it some love.  The lining of the case in the photo seemed like the perfect test run for that.

I cut a piece of white muslin fabric and stamped the guide lines and medallions onto it using grey ink, adding some little bursts (from the Borders and Corners stamp set) to the centers of the medallions using pink ink and to the blank intersections using the same grey ink.  I backed the fabric with some Vintage Cream cardstock to try to make it more of a cream color like the case inset, and then matted it onto Pure Poppy cardstock, stitching around the perimeter with my sewing machine.

I used stamps from the Communique Curves Sentiments, Mehndi Medallion, and Sending You sets for the Fillable Frames #4 panel, edge inking it in bronze and adding some clear mini rhinestones.

I used the Flower Fusion #4 die to cut flowers from Raspberry Fizz cardstock, cutting them in towards the center a little and edge inking them in cranberry ink to create some definition for the petals.  I added some yellow mini brads to the centers.

I cut some leaf branches from Simply Chartreuse cardstock using the Turning A New Leaf die set, also stamping them with the coordinating stamp set using Versamark.
