Wizard of Oz was always one of my favorite movies growing up. (I could have done without the Wicked Witch bicycle scene. That image still haunts me to this day.) ;) So, when I saw this blue gingham paper in October Afternoon's Sasparilla collection, I knew exactly what I wanted to create.
I used my silhouette to cut a scalloped border and then picked bits & pieces from Crate Paper's Farmhouse collection that reminded me of Auntie Em, Kansas & the whole bit.
It's good to have alphabet stamps on hand when you want to create a unique sentiment. And, I know I've mentioned it before, but Lawn Fawn's alpha stamps are seriously THE best on the market! For one, they are clear & you can see exactly where you're stamping... but they also stamp perfectly aligned every time. Just line them up side by side & there's no guess work about spacing.
For the word "home", I wanted to play off of Dorothy's ruby slippers, so I covered the Thickers with Glossy Accents & then poured glitter over the top.
The Studio Calico wood veneer house was just the perfect embellishment! I might have stifled a squeal after it all came together. ;) I hand embroidered some smoke coming from the chimney & used additional embroidery floss to tie around my card.
You can see this and all of my Garden Girl projects in my Two Peas gallery. (I'm a bit behind in sharing things on my blog, so there are quite a few new projects to be found.)
And now... I'd like to announce the winner of Amy Tan's new Collect & Create Workshop!
I love Amy's work, and would be so excited to get into her class! She has an incredible eye for design! Thank you so much for the chance! rebecca_lovell
