Happy New Year!!! Welcome to the first blog hop of 2013! We are so excited to share the great stamp sets we are releasing this month and the months to come. 



 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:
" OH Baby"
 

The mini stamp set we have for you this month is

"Not So Ugly"
 

My first card for today's set, In My Den, features my favorite image from this set -- the globe.  It might sound corny, but I've always thought that having a globe in your house was kind of classy!  This set was made for masculine cards.  I used a piece of DP from Basic Grey's Oxford paper pad which looked like library shelves.  I added a knot (thought that was better for a guy!) to one side.  The sentiments and the globe are popped up with dimensionals.


I paper-pieced the chair on my second card, using a hounds tooth pattern, along with some "clock" DP to complement the sentiment.  The background piece was stamped with the sentiment and then embossed with a plaid embossing folder.  The smaller circle is glued down; the larger circle is popped up with dimensionals. I added a little interest with the copper brads in the corner.

Love the houndstooth chair, but your first card is amazing. I love the dp that you used that looks like books. What better thing to have in a den. Awesome job!!

These are fabulous! I love the "Oxford" DP you used on the first one with that fabulous globe! Love the hounds tooth and time pieces on the 2nd card!

Ravengirl said...

What wonderful cards Lois! I'm not sure that you could have found any more perfect patterned paper here. I think that book shelf paper is absolutely fabulous and you made the globe stand out from it so it holds its own as well.
