Nursery Shelf

** This is my 2nd post today - please scroll down for the MyGrafico Challenge **

Have you enjoyed the new releases so far this week from Inktegrity? I sure have! If you've not seen the fabulous cards from Joni and her amazing design team, you have to click here to see them!

When Joni sent the newest images and said we could do one a day or all three on one day, I knew exactly what I was going to do. But I did attempt to make single cards and I just couldn't because this idea was brewing in my head and I needed to get it out. Oh man, I hope you like it. This is my card that I titled Nursery Shelf.


I am really happy with my card. This was a lot of work! First off, I used the mantel image, but I altered it a bit. I removed the little house and then changed the candle sticks into a lamp and a book and then added more books. It took a couple of times to size and print the toys on the shelf but I think I finally got them right. I also used an image from Joni's very first release to create the portrait on the wall. I'm calling it a shelf because I didn't do anything below the mantel to make it appear it's above a fireplace, but continued the wallpaper instead. I used Certainly Celery as the base and then layered Barely Banana on top of that. The sentiment I used is from Say it with Stamps by Jen.

Thanks for coming by again! I do so love our visits.

Woman you are ROCKIN' that shelf. I'm stuck for ideas...God I suck! LOL! I see it in my head...but it doesn't transfer! UGH! I love what you're making with it though! I bet Joni is on cloud 9 with the fabby creations made with her digi's. I know my DS gets a HUGE smile seeing his creations come to life. Love it chica...keep working that shelf!
