Stampin’ Up Decorative Masks for a fun background

Hello Stampers ~ Are you ready for to see how to used Stampin’ Up Decorative Masks for a fun background?

Well I spent yesterday shopping.  Barb and I went to Talbot’s, had lunch, and then did some furniture shopping.  I found several patterns of fabric I liked for a love seat and chair.  I have a few more stores to go to and check out their fabric selections.  I know what I want I just cannot find a love seat and a chair in the same fabric.  I will check out the other stores over the next week or so as there should be some President’s Day sales coming up.  The builder also contacted me about the paint color I had chosen.  That means they will doing the painting soon.  It won’t be long now!  The floors still need to  installed but they have to be in the house for several days so they can acclimate before they are installed.  They also have to have the heat on so it will be a while before that happens.  They installed one of my stained glass pieces yesterday.  I am so excited about it!  It looks so good.  We are still waiting on someone to install the metal roofing accents before they can finish the siding.  I am headed down there tomorrow so I will get some pictures of updates to share.

It had been a while since I had played with my Stampin’ Up stencils.  I pulled them out for my creation today.  I used the brick pattern and Crumb Cake ink to create the background.  The Silver Metallic edged ribbon was added to the top along with a bow.  This panel was added to a Balmy Blue card base.  I stamped the flowers using Balmy Blue and Old Olive.  I fussy cut the flowers and then cut the Old Olive one apart to form the leaves.  I attached the leaves to the back of the flowers.  The flowers were then added to the card base using dimensionals.  To finish off the card some rhinestones were added to the center of the flowers for some sparkle.  Here is the completed Stampin’ Up Decorative Masks for a fun background.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  I am headed to a Lion’s Club yard sale this morning to see if I can find some headboards and footboards that I can paint and use in my guest rooms.  I also want to see if I can find a coffee table I can do the same thing with.  Wish me luck as it can be hit or miss.  Have a Great Day and have you played with the Stampin’ Up Decorative Masks for a fun background?
