Welcome to the second group post for Papertrey this month. Today we're featuring Dawn's new Delightful Doilies stamp set with coordinating dies, Doily Details dies and the Parisian Lace Doily die. Please be sure to visit Nichole's blog for additional details and the hints for today's prize.
For my first project I worked with the Delightful Doilies stamps and coordinating dies. I created a colorful card with layered doilies using Plum Pudding, Aqua Mist and Dark Chocolate colors.
I love the layered look of the stamped images cut out with the dies. The great thing is you can make doilies in any color you like. Reminds me of the Spirograph images I used to make as a kid. For my background paper I used Green Boutique and the base card is Fine Linen. You'll see a lot of projects from me this month using Fine Linen as my neutral base. Love it.
For the sentiment part of my card I stamped and die cut a label image from Pine's new Fillable Frames Additions 1 using Dark Chocolate ink. I adhered the label to my card front with part of it hanging off the side. I stitched the label back and forth with my sewing machine. If you'll notice in the main card photo I used the cut off portion of the label as another embellishment piece. Love that too and will keep that in mind for more projects. Oh how I love Piney's label stamps, sentiments and coordinating dies. They mix and match with any project.
For my second project today I used the Parisian Lace Doily and one of Dawn's Doily Details dies as backgrounds on a card.
The doilies are a great layering accent to add under focal points, tags, patterned papers, or to tuck behind ribbons, etc. They can be cut from patterned paper, cardstock for stability or from regular copy paper if you want a traditional paper doily feel. Great little accents that I know I will reach for often to use on my projects.
For the focal point of my card I used the original jar image and die from Friendship Jar along with a stamp from Button Boutique. Instead of stamping a jar filler, I stitched on a snippet of patterned paper from Pretty Pastels. Vintage Buttons and a wooden button from my shop were hand sewn onto the jar. Tiny wooden spools from my shop were covered with patterned paper scraps and adhered with glue dots.
The buttons and ribbon that I'm using today are from the new Royal Velvet color collection. Very vibrant and pretty.
Whew, what an exciting month. That does it for our countdown projects for this month....and now on to the big release night. The 15th is the big day..have fun shopping!!
