PPRS Monday Inspiration - Changing up the Image

Happy Monday!!!!
Ooops! Guess what I did.  I forgot to write up this post!  It was on my list for last night and then I guess I got distracted and oopsie.  

Well here it is and I have to tell you I think this is going to be one of my favorite cards!!!  I am sharing with you JJ0085 Hanging an Ornament today.  Yes, you read that correctly, an Ornament!  This is a Christmas image.  I didn't get to use her in December so I decided that with just a tiny change I could use her all year long!  There's just something about her that tugs at me.  It might be my passion for Classic movies that makes me love her so, she reminds me of the stars of some of my favorite movies!

So how did I change this cute image? On the stamp she holds an ornament.  I masked off the ornament, stamped the heart from GG0131 Branch with Hearts on a sepeate piece of paper, colored and fussy cut it.  Next I drew a line from her hands to where I was going to place the heart.  I adhered the heart and violoa!  She's now a valentine!!!!

It's not nice to peep under a lady's skirt but I thought just this once it would be ok so that I can share the fun dimension.  The skirt was stamped on patterned paper twice.  One layer adhered to the image, the second layer I added tulle then adhered at the waist leaving the lower portion of the skirt to flow!

 I played along with SC522 for my design so in keeping with the sketch I used PPRS-D034 Floral Border for the layer beneath the image and the sentiment is part of CLR047 Mini Vases.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!!

I hope you will stop on by the PPRS BLOG to see all the goodies my teammates have to share today!


  1. this is so fabulous Angela I love what you did with her :)

  2. Very 40's and 50's. Reminds me of DW in days gone by and good times. Love this card to pieces. - Jim

  3. What a creative gem - love how you changed it around and also how you made that cute skirt.

  4. She reminds me of I Love Lucy and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your card!!!! Cute image whether she's holding a heart or an ornament! I do love her holding that pretty heart though! Also love that cute little petticoat (tulle) she's sporting! Oh, how I remember the feel of those things growing up! LOL!
    Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog and for also becoming a follower! I'm now a follower of your blog too - and love it!

  5. i agree with jimlynn. it does have the fun reek of "old television" I can certainly see why it would be a fave of yours. I like how your lace brings out her under slip. The paper piecing is great.

  6. I love your card! I have a collection of vintage images of these '40's/'50's girls and I just love them. Your idea to exchange the ornament for a Valentine heart is so clever! I also love the way you poofed out her skirt with a tulle petticoat - so, so darling! I must purchase this stamp! Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. Squee! I love it! No really!! It's awesome and I think even better than hanging an ornament! hanging a heart! Love the vintage!

  8. Super smart to alter her and use her all year round Angie. She is really cute and vintage and fun and I can see why you are drawn to her - that face is so sweet. Love the way you did that skirt - genius!!! Many hugz!

  9. Oh, how great is this, Angie!!!!! I love how you turned her into a very sweet valentine girl - so clever!!!! Love the tulle, Angie!!! So cute!!!


  10. I can see why you like this's so versatile (and cute) and you are so creative with this card!
