Need a Little Classic Decor?

Well you are in luck!! Welcome to my little stop on the Doodle Factory Blog Hop celebration of Irene's latest amazing creation - Classic Decor! You have a chance to win all the stamps in this new set as well as the matching sentiments, so don't miss a word!

The next stop after my blog is the incredibly talented Andrea Cloutier - wait till you see what she has cooked up.

But first, come into the little sassy home I've created with these images.

First, you know I had to start with a beast. This chubby little kitty cried out for a wallpapered drawing room and a flowered chaise lounge, courtesy Basic Grey Marrakech paper.
I made her striped with the Colorless Copic Blender after coloring her all over with brown. Same with the highlight on the kibble dish.

Now, let's move into the dining room, where I've hung a chandelier. I made it LOOK like I paper pieced this intricate beauty, but I didn't - I just hung the "walls" with Stampin' Up! Razzleberry Lemonade DSP, stamped the chandelier on top, and then colored it with my white gel pen and added rhinestones for the crystal!
The floor is also Razzleberry Lemonade, and the ribbon is Soft Suede.

The greeting is from the matching Doodle Factory Classic Decor Sentiments - and you have to see all the cool typography in this set. As a designer, I'm a font nut, and these really stole my heart.

Now, are you thirsty? How rude to invite you into my Classic Decor home without offering you a drink! What will it be? Wine? Coffee? Tea? You're in luck - we have them all!
I stamped these in black on kraft cardstock, and then colored them with copics and my white gel pen. The colored cardstock and ribbon are SU! Bermuda Bay. The sentiment is from the matching set, which I know you're gonna win! Wait for it...

Now the formal living room is very understated. I love to hang out in this monochromatic room on the lounge with my flowers and a book. I think about you when I'm in there, and how you make me feel at home!! :)
Fun, yeah?

Ready to see some more? Ready to WIN these??? Well head on over to Andrea's, or if you came directly here, there's a full hop list below - be sure and start at the top so you don't miss any blog with a prize on it!!

And if you don't win - no problem. There's a special for the release - if you buy the full Classic Decor set and matching sentiments, you will get all your cling mount FREE! This special runs from today through the 10th.

So here's the list - enjoy your trip!
