Paper Vineyard-November 27 2010

Hey there everyone!! This post marks my first post as a Design Team member for Paper Vineyard . Paper Vineyard is a scrapbook store located in Chandler, Arizona and the new design team will feature cards, layouts and other paper-crafted projects showcasing fabulous products that you can find in their store! I am VERY excited to be able to design for them, as they carry some terrific products. This week is the first week to showcase product and participate in their new challenges where you can showcase your creativity and have a chance to win a fabulous prize. This week's prize is a Bo Bunny grab bag---Oooohhh!!! I love Bo Bunny, and it's always fun to get a BAG full of goodies. There will be two monthly posts with challenges featuring showcased products from the story, using the latest techniques in paper-crafting! What's even better is that you get to participate too!! So, what are you waiting for?

You can visit Paper Vineyard's blog to see my designs along with the other amazing team member's fantastic creations. This week I was given some Shimmerz, patterned paper from We R Memory Keepers, and some fabulously cool new mesh ribbon.

Oh Christmas Tree!
I put down painter's tape to shape a tree.
I then painted Shimmerz over it, heat set the paint, and then pulled off the tape.
Afterwards, I inked the masked image, and stitched a tree outline
I added and stitched buttons to the tree for a feminine and vintage feel

To top it off, a fun sentiment from an old favorite Christmas song,
"Oh Christmas Tree."

XoXo-P.S. I Love You
 I covered the card base with patterned paper, painted the edges with
white paint and some green Shimmerz. Lots of layering on this card

I distressed a pink chipboard frame, and added Shimmerz to the flowers
Love the little lettering beads, couldn't resist adding them

You can see a little white mesh peeking through, and that fabulous 
sparkly ribbon that I bunched up under the frame

  So, don't delay!! You have until December 11th at 9pm to link your card using Mr. Linky!! Follow the links  on the right side of my blog to visit the sites of my other fellow designers further inspiration!
