Dear Friend

Good Morning, Stampers!

In the Occasions Mini Catalog, the Floral Romance Suite is filled with soft, pale beautiful color. This card I created is a bit opposite. I kept the the base ink color Early Espresso and added a pop of color with Melon Mambo. It's hard to believe this is the same set from the catalog - they are both so different! It's so fun to play with color!

SU!pplies:
Stamps: Wonderful Romance, Life is Grand
Ink: Early Epsresso, Melon Mambo
Paper: Whisper White, Early Espresso
Accessories: Blender Pen, Basic Pearls, Wonderful Floral framelits

CCMC Saturday Blog Hop - Nothing But Neutrals

Good Morning, Stampers!

We are creating with neutrals this week at
Create with Connie and Mary!


I love the way the neutral tones give the doilies
a vintage feel to the card. Reminds me of tea-dying
my Grandma's crocheted doilies. The Dear Doily stamp
set has great sentiments for several occasions, too!


To recreate this card:
1. Stamp the medium doily using Crumb Cake ink.
2. Stamp the large doily using Crumb Cake ink STAMP OFF FIRST.
3. Stamp the small doily using Early Espresso ink.
4. Stamp the sentiment onto Very Vanilla cardstock using Early Espresso ink.
5. Cut using the circle framelit.
6. Cut the doily from Very Vanilla cardstock.
7. Cut the large circle from Early Espreso cardstock.
8. Adhere the doily to the circle
9. Adhere the sentiment to the circle using Stampin' Dimensionals.
10. Adhere the circle to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
11. Cut (3) small doilies from Crumb Cake cardstock.
12. Adhere the doilies to the card front.

SU!pplies:
Stamps: Dear Doily
Ink: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Paper: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Layering Circle framelits, Doily Builder framelits
