What is in my Quirky Cupboard?

Whoo hoo, my turn to set the challenge and it is based on the image supplied by the sponsor Crackerbox Palace. It is all about cupboards, shelves or dressers, and they must have contents!
The team used the digi version of this but I had the stamp set which I won some time ago so I decided to use it and the sentiment it comes with.
I cut out and coloured two cupboards, and layered them together with foam for depth to add embellishments. I coloured the foam tape to match, colours used are Denim Blue blended with Cyan and Ruby Red Promarkers for the hearts. I added some "wallpaper and carpet" using DCWV paper and some card stock, die cut with a Grand Nestability scalloped square die, added gingham ribbon to cover the join (gingham skirting??) and mounted that on a panel of teal cardstock, which has narrow and wider heart ribbon top and bottom (all ribbon was from Crafty Ribbons), and faux stitching with a white pencil, and added the die cut sentiment to the bottom. Then went hunting in my stash for the mini cans, and found a few other embellies to use! This said Mother to me, so I stamped a Hero Arts sentiment and heat embossed it. 

I cut the doors off the underneath cupboard and stuck them to the back of the doors of the top cupboard, I scored the doors first so I could bend them forward, and then cut out two heart knobs to add to the doors. I wish they closed, I would have liked to have them as openable, but sadly they don't meet by a long way. Maybe they would look strange if the doors were big enough!
So hop over to Quirky Crafts to see more Cupboards or shelves and to join in the fun!
