Shopping Our Stash #279

Hey everyone and happy Tuesday!!
It's time for a new challenge over at 

This week challenge #279 is....
Warm and Fuzzy!
(Fireplace, Warm hats, Mittens, Cocoa, etc.)

Here is what I created:

I thought it would be neat to try and recreate a living room setting with the fireplace all aglow and warm. This was actually pretty easy to do. I cut a strip of patterned paper for the carpet, added a striped white piece of cardstock for the wainscoting and a grey piece of cardstock for the wall color onto a piece of scrap cardstock. I then attached that to the front of my card base. I used a die from My Favorite Things for the fireplace and stockings. I assembled the fireplace, attached some "baseboards" and a "chair rail" and placed it onto my card front. To finish off my card, I stamped my greeting, matted it and hung it above the fireplace. I had this sweet little branch swag in one of my stamp sets so I colored it and fussy cut it out and placed it over the greeting. 

Neglected items from my stash that I used are:
  • Fireplace die from My Favorite Things. I have had this die for about a year and never used it until now.
  • Branch from the July 2014 Peachy Keen Stamp Club set. I have never used this particular image from here.
  • Patterned Paper from the Remarkable paper pad. I hardly ever use this paper pad even though it has some beautiful colors and patterns in it. 

Be sure to head over to the Shopping Our Stash Challenge Blog to see what my design team sisters created. I hope you will decide to make a project and join us, I would love to see what you create!

Oh Stacey, I can feel the warmth of that fireplace, what a beautiful and sweet card, I absolutely love all of the details, specially the framed sentiment, with the beautiful swag above the mantel.
Have a wonderful and sweet Thanksgiving Day with your family.

I knew this was yours-- so clean! You have such a great eye for interior design: I love the carpet and grey walls with the white fireplace and wainscoting! And of course the card itself is such a classy card-- anyone would be thankful to receive it!
