Welcome to the next stop on the StarvingArtistamps/DoodleFactory: Classic Decor Blog Hop. (Woah, that's a mouthful!) If you're on track, you probably jumped here from Natasha Trupp's blog. But if you're lost and want to start at the very beginning, head back to the company blog where you'll find the entire blog-hop path PLUS information on the 3-Day special going on at StarvingArtistamps.com. In addition to all the eye candy you'll see along the way, you don't want to miss out on the secret blog candy hidden in one of the stops.
Now onto my contribution to the hop. Playing with this set felt like playing with a 2D Doll House, and I found myself having fun moving the pieces in infinite configurations. I aspired to make one long accordion-style card with every last image in it, but I was feeling a bit rusty and had to reign in my compositions to include just a few stamps to showcase.
As you can see, the style of this set is a bit of a departure from any of our previous releases. There are two new characters in the set, and my boyfriend informed me that they don't look like my "usual" work. I purposely made them more "refined" to go with this "refined" set of furniture...however, I think the good ole DoodleFactory fans will find these images will still work quite well with any of the DF sets.
Both of my cards combine some of the old with some of the new. On top, I used Ambrose, the chaise lounge, pillows, cuckoo clock and frames from the Classic Decor set. The portrait wall is made up of a half-dozen mini-Yapples from the original Creatures Set.
Below, Banjo from the Valentine Remix set is having coffee with his newest neighbor, Ms. Poose. I thought the wainscotting made a pretty good bar when fitted with bark-paper slats, and the side table doubled as a cat stool. See? Versatile!
Anyway, I won't take up much more of your time because there's still plenty of blog hop to go! Next, please point your mice in the direction of our very special guest designer and DoodleFactory's biggest cheerleader: Dawn Mercedes!
