Apron Inspiration

So, I was shopping yesterday at Pier 1 Imports and saw this adorable apron. It was tiered with golden yellow damask, brown and white polka dots, and a floral pattern with pinks, oranges, yellows, and browns. I knew I had to try to duplicate it. It's definately a little busy for my typical card style so I decided not to put a focal image on this first card. I think it turned out looking very similar to the apron I saw. The main stamp set used to create the floral pattern was CTMH Cottage Floral.

I kept this next card even simpler. I used the polka dot and damask patterns for the background and used the Cottage Floral as a focal image. I think they look very "Anthropologie". What do you think?

Here are the specs:

Stamps: CTMH Cottage Floral, Damask Tiles, Annotations (thank you), Cirle Around, Serendipity and leaves from Key To My Heart, PTI Polka Dot Basics and Mega Mixed Messages (thanks)

Cardstock: CTMH Colonial White, Cocoa and Sorbet

Inks: CTMH Creme Brulee, Cocoa, Blush, Sorbet and Colonial White

Accessories: PTI Ribbon

Tools: Martha Stewart Tag Punch and Ek Success Scalloped Border Punch


  1. Karla,

    I just found your blog and am so impressed with your artwork. I am working on a card inspired by your apron card right now!
