Etsy Inspired Challenge #84 - Cose Dolci

>> Friday, April 16, 2010

It's time for a new challenge! This week we have a lovely, warm, and unique shop for you to be inspired by. Cose Dolci specializes in beautiful handmade living accessories. When I first saw this shop I fell in love with her wool felt bowls. I can picture a few of them in my dream craft room...each filled with a different embellishment. :) She also creates pretty patchwork pillows and notepads. Here are a few of my personal favorites from Cose Dolci's shop.

Don't you just love the colors, designs, and texture of these pieces?!

So along with this great shop, we also have another fabulous sponsor this week! The Caffinated Cropper has just started selling wonderful and unique paper crafting kits. This month's kit is called 'With a Cherry on Top' and it is delicious! :) Amy, the owner, is super sweet herself and has some great companies and designers contributing to her kits. This month's kit includes some great digital stamps from Lindsay Spencer which I love because you can use them even after all your paper crafting goodies are long they are super cute! Also included are some fabulous Stickerz from EAD Designs. Click HERE to check out the list of ALL the items that are included in 'With a Cherry on Top'. Amy will be giving this week's winner a mini version of the kit!

So now that I know you are ready to play...
- Check out Cose Dolci and find an item that inspires you...feel free to look through her sold section too.
- Create a project of your own based off the inspiration and link it up to this post using Mr. Linky below by Friday, April 23rd at noon PST.

Everyone will be entered into a random drawing to win. If you upload to SCS or PCP, please use keyword EIC84. And please remember to give credit to the shop that you found your inspiration from.

Thank you for the inspiration, mine is kind of a mix between the trees with the dots and the shades of green hearts! :)

Going to try to play along this week! Great inspiration shop and sponsor!

This was so fun. My first time playing along and I'm glad I did. I liked the whole patchwork concept, so I went with that. It was even the first time I used faux stitching too.

I LOVE the idea behind this challenge - encouraging and supporting artisans. I loved her felt flowers and the way she embellished them. So my project included felt flowers with french knots. Fun!

I know it's too late to count - even though the project was on time. But I like to see lots of names each week, all supporting EIC.
