Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Good Monday Morning to you all! 


I am so thrilled to be hosting this week's Challenge as a February Guest Designer.  I hope you all find the time to play along! 


Today's Challenge will be to create a Shabby Chic project WITH a Matching Envelope!  Not too difficult, right???


Using one of my favorite stamp sets from the past, Sent With Love, I have created this card:


I created a frame to showcase the historic Eiffel Tower.  A little paper piercing, layered tag punch, lace, pearls, flower with jute twine with Baker's twine with button. I also gave the seam binding ribbon and doily a tea bath to age them.  Stamps colored with Copic Markers.


Bonus Points if you also complete the inside of your card and envelope!  ;)




Be sure to have your creation uploaded to the  gallery no later than Sunday, Feb. 23rd, 8PM CST.  Be sure you use the tag 'STV14MON7' so we will all be able to see and find your creation! 

We will choose a random winner from all eligible entries to win some awesome Gina K Design goodies! 



I can not wait to see what you all create!

Beautiful shabby chic!  A real challenge for me.  I have trouble with shabby chic.  Hope to play and see how shabby I can get.

Gorgeous card, as usual. I'm so excited to try this challenge. The envelope is such a great idea, as is finishing the inside so everything is all set to go. For me, the biggest difficulty is the Shabby Chic part. I struggle with that look, although I love it. I must be off to my craft room now. Thanks for the great challenge!!!

This is a beautiful card and the challenge is "a challenge".  I love the shabby look, but it is not easy to put a bunch of stuff on a card and have it look great ,as you have done here.  So, this will take some thinking, but I am up for the challenge.  I knew you would do something great!  So glad I can play this week.

Well done you!  Your Shabby Chic card is wonderful!  You nailed it!  I will try real hard to play along this week!

Pretty!  Definitely a challenge for me, though.  I'm more clean and simple than shabby and chic! :)

Gorgeous card Donna!  Love the shabby/chic style too!  What a fun challenge!  

This is definitely a challenge for me, but I have managed to produce some shabby chic cards that I liked in the past, so I'm up for it!  Unfortunately, I am out of lace.  I'll have to think about this some more.

Your card and envelope are really great!  This is definitely a challenge as chic is not really my style, nor is shabby, so much.  Put them together and I'm at a loss.  I will, however, try.

Beautiful card Donna. Sounds like a fun challenge too. But as much as I may want to join in, I may be passing. I think my computer is headed to the hospital for a check up. And, might end up having to buy a new one. I will hang in as long as I can before I get it to the computer place and try to keep up with things. But I may be doing less than I had planned. I did get that addy for the little boy Colin though and will try to get a card off to him.

Have never made Shabby Chic...hmmm guess I best learn something new this week!

Do you mean dirty but girly?  

Maybe this definition will help:

Shabby chic (pronounced: "sheek") is a form of interior design where furniture and furnishings are either chosen for their appearance of age and signs of wear and tear or where new items are distressed to achieve the appearance of an antique. At the same time, a soft, opulent, yet cottage-style decor, often with an affected feel is emphasized to differentiate it from genuine period decor.
