Good Evening All….
My Lovely friend Lauren from Laurenscraft and I are in the middle of a fun challenge with each other. We are playing with our Hello Doily stamps and trying to create to inspire each other! How fun is that? I have created this little project as a ‘Backatcha’ Lauren!!! *wag tongue* …. Check this one out…
I heat embossed the lovely Hello Doily stamp on to recollections pink card stock with Martha Stewart Bright White and then used the Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet Distress Ink that I snagged at The Cutting Garden to ink around the edges to give it dimension, what a beautiful effect! I hope my picture does it justice!!
I was really pleased with this card but found it to be a bit bumpy and could see that it would be difficult to find an envelope for it as the card measures approx. 5 x 5 so I went ahead and created an envelope that would allow for an embellished card (bumpy and hard to mail) to match!…. have a look at this….
I used my Martha Stewart scoring board to design this envelope to be thick enough to accommodate the pin and raised bow that I used to embellish my card. I decided to add the finishing touch and heat emboss the beautiful flower on to th envelope.
I like to call this taking doily’s to the next level! … I used the Stampin’ Up Hello Doily stamp and topped it off by using the Martha Stewart Vintage Doily Punch Around the Page punch set I picked up at The Cutting Garden.
Okay Lauren!!! The ball is in your court!!! Tag You Are It!!! 😀
I hope my project inspires you to find some creative time in your day, it is truly a relaxing and rewarding hobby 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
