Tag Archive for ‘Doily Stamps’

Just Because..

I have always admired card makers who create beautiful cards with a crisp white background…it’s not easy when you are using inks and all sorts of colouring mediums…but I guess practice and a bit of planning makes it better…so today I’m sharing a card that turned out just right…..

The card base is plain white and I have used a lime green mat layer…the top layer is also white and I have stamped two doily stamps – one large and one small – on the top layer using black ink…

On a separate piece of white cardstock I stamped a couple of other smaller doily stamps with black ink as well and partially coloured them in and cut them out…then using adhesive foam for a bit of dimension, I placed two of these in the middle of the stamped doilies and another one on the side…

The sentiment is from an Altenew stamp set called Painted Greetings…

I have not used any embellishments on this card but have used glossy accents to make the center of the doilies a bit more brighter and shiny…

Thank you for visiting my blog today…Have a happy and crafty day…!!

Split Card Design

Stamping doesn’t always go to plan…especially for me…so I usually am super careful or else I end up spending too much time either trying to hide the mistake or starting again…so I decided to finally get myself the Mini Misti stamping tool by My Sweet Petunia and it’s simply awesome…I even had a project tutorial bookmarked for trying out my Mini Misti…
The project is by Jennifer McGuire and called Split Card Design….I made two sets of cards after following her tutorial…Jennifer has also used heat embossing on her cards but I decided not to and assembled the card right after I stamped the top layers…
I’m sure one look at the cards and you must have worked out how these were made….I stamped one white top layer with blue ink and a blue top layer with black ink….the Misti tool comes in super handy here as both layers need to to stamped exactly the same way…I then held both these layers together under the trimmer and cut them horizontally right through the middle of the large stamped word…
All I had to do then was to swap the bottom parts of the layers and stick them onto the card base….I have used a few sequins to embellish the cards…
