Hello Again Blog Friends…. My lovely Friend Lauren from Laurenscraft and I are in the middle of a fun challenge to each other using our new Stampin’ Up! Hello Doily stamp. We are creating machines at the moment trying to push the envelope to create something nicer each time we stamp! Here’s what I created while Lauren is loafing off sleeping LOL!! That’s not fair, our time difference is 12 hours so of course she is sleeping… I just couldn’t resist that friendly little jab….
I stamped the doily twice and used heat embossing, once in white and again in black and cut the center out of the black doily and popped it up on top of the white one. I wanted to show off some of the beautiful ribbon Kim has in stock at The Cutting Garden. Ribbon is pretty much my favorite embellishment for anything I create. I struggle creating anything without a bow!
What do you think of the lovely photo corners? I have finally broke down and picked up this handy little punch at The Cutting Garden because it adds some lovely interest to the corners of my cards and can be used as a simple embellishment as well as for photos. To finish off my project I made a hand made 5 x 5 envelope and faintly stamped the doily on to the corner. Envelopes can be very costly to purchase and making your own is very cost effective, when made properly, they look very professional.
Thanks so much for visiting today and I hope what I have created has inspired you to get inky!
Lauren…… TAG! You’re It! (again) *wag tongue*
