The Shabby Tea Room #67!

Hi all and welcome to The Shabby Tea Room #67 - 'Classic Patterns'!  Danielle is our fabby host this week and she has chosen this {yummy} photo as inspiration for us all to create with ...

... delicious, right??!!??  Danielle asks that we create a card or project inspired by the COLORS in the photo and use POLKA DOTS AND/OR GINGHAM!  Sooooo fun :)

I chose to create another block for my Art Quilt for today's Shabby project!  I also was inspired not only by all those yummy polka dots AND gingham, but also by the bright and cheery tones of pinks, greens and yellows from the inspo pic - my favs! My image is stamped using the Tea with Bella PreCut Set from Heartfelt Creations ... isn't it sooo pretty!  I colored it with pastel chalks and glittered the leaves on the cup and roses down below - yum!

Lots of shabby goodness here - the sentiment is also from the Tea with Bella set and the stamped flourish is from  My Mind's Eye - Laundry Line that I got from The Beary Scrap Paper Crafting Boutique.  The pretty Baby Pink Berry Shabby Vintage Seam Binding is from my Etsy Shop and I included some lace trim, buttons, pearls, twine, a trinket pin, a chipboard heart glittered with pink glitter glass and a pretty bloom from Prima!  The yellow gingham fence was cut using my Cricut and the doilie and scalloped border dies are from MFT.

Patterned papers are from The Girls' Paperie and Jillbean Soup.  I adhered the entire design onto a pink and white piece of gingham fabric that I cut by hand to leave a raggity edge look and then machine stitched some zig-zags all along the border to frame the paper crafted design.  I'm lovin' how mixy-matchy these art quilt blocks are coming out by using fabric and paper, trims and stamping on them all.  All of my favorite things!

Our sponsor in the Tea Room this week is Joan's Gardens!  Joan was kind enough to provide each of the Shabby Girls with a lovely stamp set from Heartfelt Creations to design with this week ...
