OSAT Blog Hop - Shabby Chic

Good Morning, Stampers!

Welcome to the July OSAT Shabby Chic Blog Hop!
Whether you are just starting out or continuing on from Tina's 
Blog, you are sure to get some great inspiration as you 
continue along on the hop!

I created a card and pencil cup for my projects,
I think anything with a little burlap or vintage-looking
lace makes for a great shabby-chic look so I was 
sure to include them in my pieces!

I stamped the The Jar of Love stamp set on 
Very Vanilla cardstock with Soft Suede ink.
Adding a little lace under the lids adds to
the Shabby-Chic look. 

I carried the soft pink flowers over along with some burlap 
ribbon for my pencil cup. The top is covered
in the Whisper White pom pom trim.
Hot glue made the assembly fast and easy!

See what I used to create the cup?
A little snack for you while you 
create your card! Then, when you are
all done, you have a full tummy
and a fun little cup ready to
be transformed!

I covered the cup with a little Antique
White acrylic paint first so the orange 
wouldn't show through.
