More Hello Doily Fun with Lauren….

4 Jun

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!

    Lisa, did you ever consider using real doilies in any of these projects? I saw something that had used real doilies for a white on white project. I think it was mod podged first then painted white but i am sure you could incorporate them without that much trouble – I was thinking an ink-sponging stencil for a background?
    This is beautiful!

    OH this is so gorgeous. The white on the pink is so striking. I love the butterflies and pearls. Your punched border is very elegant.
