Doily and bitty dots

This is a CASE, but I don't remember where I saw it!  I loved the combination of pink, melon dot ribbon and white doily. 

Am going to use this as a congrats on a pregnancy.  There's something about bitty dot ribbon that makes me think of babies. 

Supplies; Stamps - unknown, Paper - Sweet blush, white, Other; Parisian lace doily die, Melon berry bitty dot ribbon.

All soft and white

I've been meaning to make a card like this for awhile - all soft and creams/whites.

The background mat is a gold shimmer cardstock, and it's impressed with In Bloom folder.  The doily was cut out of vellum.  The background stamp with roses is from Impression Obsession.   Lots of distress ink for the edges.

This is my first time using Tiny Tags - eek, so cute and fun! 

Supplies; Stamps; Background roses, Tiny Tags, Paper - vellum, cream, shimmer, Other; Parisian doily die, Tiny Tags die, In Bloom impression plate, Antique linen distress ink, cream satin ribbon, 1/8'' silk ribbon.

PTI blog hop - masculine

I decided my play before the card happened was nice enough to warrant a photo too.  :)

Love, love the Postmarks set.  As you see from the above play session, I went with greys and blues.


The 'post' is from Postmarks, minus the 'card'.  The blue highlighting outline is from Label basics stamped on the reverse side.  The 'birthday' is from Giga guidelines.  And the background is a Tim Holtz stamp, repeatedly stamped off.  Lots of sponging around the edges, first in grey, then black.


I used markers to colour in the wings.  And not many embellishments as fitting for a masculine card. 

Supplies; Stamps - Postmarks, Labels basics, Giga guidelines, Tim Holtz twiggy background, Paper - white, kraft, Other - postage stamp die.

5 x 7 TY

I felt like I was getting in a rut with the standard A2 cards, so tried something different.  5 x 7'' and oh my - it was a lot of space to work with.

It came out a bit bottom heavy - I think I'm all cured of my wish for big canvasses for awhile!

Supplies; Stamps - Fancy flourishes, Paper - Bittersweet PP (Basic grey), Hibiscus burst, Raspberrry fizz, Dark chocolate, cream, Other - Beautiful blooms die, lace trim, Labels #1 die, half pearls.
