Hello crafty friends, Chris with you here today. I admit it, I love books and so I couldn’t resist  to create a card with this new stamp set from the August release. And maybe you know, there is still a color challenge running, so I was inspired about the color mood for August. More infos about the challenge you can find HERE.

I used:

For this card I decided to play with pattern paper. sometimes I’ve one in may stash sometimes I use digital pattern paper. First I stamped all images on  alcohol marker friendly paper and colored them with Copic markers. The lamp,  furniture and the carpet I stamped the 2nd time on pattern paper, cut out and glued down on the images. For shadows I also colored with my alcohol markers on the pattern paper.

For the background I used one of the Nesting Deckle Mini Slimline Dies – one part with pattern paper – one part just with white paper. To get a “smoother look”  I used a layer of vellum. The sentiment I stamped on a red strip of paper and heat embossed with white embossing powder. All I had to do now is to arrange all images on my card base and glued down.

Maybe I could inspire you a bit for the color challenge.

I’m looking forward to seeing your own creations.

Thank you for stopping by and happy crafty time,
