Let’s Be Royal

Our Creative Corner challenge for this week is a royal theme, and I had a real struggle with this one!

The requirements are:
– Create a card or project with a royal look using a crown, castle or a princess.
– Use the photo to inspire you.
– Your project must have something yellow or gold embossed.

Well, I don’t have any castle or princess stamps and the only crown stamp I have looks more like a jester’s hat than a crown!
So, I did a google search on princess images and decided to do some paper piecing, not something that I have done much of before.  Actually, truthfully, I have never done anything like this before so it really was a challenge!

Personally, I think she looks a bit evil, or angry, what do you think?
I have used patterned paper from the Floral District paper pack, and the Delicate Designs Embossing Folders to create the lacy underskirts, along with lots of fussy cutting and faux stitching.
I am not all that happy with the final result, but I guess for a first attempt it’s ok.
There is plenty of wonderful inspiration for this challenge from the rest of the Design Team though, so make sure you check it out, and lets see what you come up with – we would love it if you would share your creations.
Well, that’s it for now, but I will be back with some more real soon.
Happy stamping!

  1. Christina I think she’s magnificent. The time you took to construct her with paper piecing and the faux stitching and all the detail in her dress, just wonderful. She doesn’t look angy to me at all…very royal. I like it!!


  2. Holy moly, you’re not happy with this? I think it’s amazing. It really gave me a thrill when I saw it on the team blog! And now that I have read about how you created it, I am doubly impressed! You really nailed ths challenge – sensational work. Hope you had a great weekend.



  3. Christina, what a wonderful job with the paper piecing! I love the creativity of making the underskirt. How pretty and love the ruffled look {smile}. Your princess is very pretty!
    A great job on creating a wonderfully detailed, and dominating queen! She looks like she has taken a royal charge of the court!
