For my blog hop creation I have used the new Window Play Inside.  I totally puffy heart this stamp set!!
I had so much fun masking and paper piecing these images  (Please excuse the fact that my lamp is "up in the air" LOL)  The furniture is paper pieced using DCWV, Linen Closet and shading and depth were created using my Copic Markers.   The rug is actually a circle stamp that I stretched out into an oval shape.  I kept the embellishments fairly simple with a strip of Twill that I inked,  a button and a dangling key charm. 

I have recently broken my index finger on my right hand in a domestic dusting accident.  ROTFL!!   Needless to say it has been difficult to color lately, but it turns out that cutting is even MORE difficult....so paper piecing may not have been the best idea but I LOVE the way it turned out!!  :)  

Here's is a complete Blog Hop List in hopping order:

Jenny Peterson (YNS Guest)
Jen del Muro (YNS Guest)
Wendy Ramlakhan <-- You are HERE
Carole Burrage (YNS Guest)

So now it's time for you to hop over to Diana's Blog as she is the next stop on the hop, but I'd love it if you left me a comment before you go...and don't forget to enter your name into the Mr. Linky for your chance to win the July Blog Hop prize.


Thanks so much for hopping with us today!!  I hope you enjoy the new release.

Love your card, Wendy! What a great design!

Ouch, sorry to hear you broke your finger! That would definitely make colouring and cutting difficult :( Hope it heals quickly!

Rachel said...

Haha, I didn't even notice the lamp was up in the air until I read what you wrote. What I did notice was the lamp coloring itself and the "light" coming from it! Love it! Never thought a lamp could look so good on a card!

The couch is really pretty with the paper piecing. Even though you had to do it with injuries, you still did an excellent job! I'd want that in my house!

Karen (Your Next Stamp) said...

Love that you puffy heart this set! LOL so cute! Great layout with lots of fun details! Now go rest your finger and tell your hubby...no more house cleaning for you! LOL
Hugs
Karen

PS - gotta {heart} that floating lamp, it's the best!

Pattie said...

I love it...floating lamp and all! The colors are great and the key dangling from the button like a keyhole is genious!!!

Julie E said...

This is so pretty and I love the soft blues. hehehehe @ 'domestic dusting accident' comment. So sorry to hear about your finger. I cut mine badly washing dishes and I know exactly how you feel. Holding Copics and scissors was like a contortionist act lol. Feel better soon!

Hi Wendy, a broken finger in a dusting accident?! I'm trying to figure out how exactly you managed to do that LOL!! Poor you, that must be a nuisance, and how long will it take to heal?? Anyway, you did manage to make a wonderful care. Love that paper piecing. And I love those stamps. I'm off hopping now. Hugs, FRea

Jennifer Moore said...

I love how you paper pieced the couch, pillows and rug. Too cute.

scrapalajen said...

Wendy, your card is wonderful! TFS!

gobeagirl said...

Oh Wendy. I just love this card. So pretty and I love how you have accented it. Simply elegant. Hugs, Lisa G

Patty said...

Wendy, you did a super job on this card! Very nice!!

Dana said...

Wendy - your card is too cute. I just love it.

Paula said...

My eye was caught by the amazing lamp - & not because it was levitating (I didn't see that until I read it). The way that button picks up the shape of the cushion & the shading of the table drawer is masterful & I love that elongated rug. The shading of the paper piecing is masterful & to think you've done this with a broken finger........ Just take care of yourself.

Mary J said...

A really great card, Wendy! I love YNS stamps - must invest!

carole (TruCarMa) said...

I'm another that didn't notice the floating lamp until it was mentioned - I was too busy admiring its 'glow'! And you made this with a broken finger?! Wow - I am SUPER impressed. No more dusting for you, Missy! ;)

stampinbygenny said...

Great idea to embellish your card with a key. Perfect! Thanks for the blog hop!

Littlehamsterz said...

I love the soft neutral tones :) The floating lamp is a cute touch!

Jan Garber said...

Would love to hear more about your dusting accident...I sprained my second toe (the one next to your big toe) last week vacuuming. Don't ask! LOL! I just taped it to my third, but I can't imagine how you made such a gorgeous card w/o the use of your rt finger!! Amazing!

Heather said...

What a great card. Sorry to hear about your finger. Hope it lets you get back to crafting at your finest soon.
