Day 4 – Growing in Unity

Today I am just going to relax and stay at home!

Talk about soft, light and airy with tons of pattern and texture, I feel this room sings happy and light heartedness. I can’t wait to plop down and enjoy a cup of coffee with a hint of sweetened condensed milk.

This kit is “Warmth of Home” by Beth Duff.  At its release, I immediately imagined all the paper piecing opportunities it brought. I will decorate this room for every holiday, the four seasons, a cabin retreat, a beach house getaway, a college apartment…

I chose Memento Rose Bud ink to stamp everything on this card.  I use black and brown ink 99% of the time, so I challenged myself to try another color.

The floor is “Barn Wall” by Brutus Monroe. The rug, placed under the sofa at an angle, is to add interest and thus no fear of it being crooked or off-centered.

I used one embellishment, the blue floss bow. It is self restraint when I use just one embellishment.  And it’s not even sparkly or shiny! I added a few specks to the sentiment, it looked a little too bright for the rest of the card. Here are the supplies I used.  They look a little lonely.  I added paper scraps for company.“Barn Wall” by Brutus Monroe is timeless and I love the contrast of the dark and light boards.“Warmth of Home” by Beth Duff. Notice the pillows have a deer and a tree on them! I paper pieced over the images for my card today but will definitely use them when I make a cabin themed card or Christmas card. Also the stamp I used for the rug makes a great wall hanging over the sofa.

Thank you again for spending time with me and please don’t forget to comment to win Unity stamps.

Enjoy your day today!
