Bday Doily 04438
On my first card, I stamped the lovely doily image from Doily Blessings using a combo of the olive & pine inks then added color with Copics. I used the large doily outline die to cut it & added a peach “button” in the center using the smallest die of the set. The backing layers were cut w/ square die then embossed w/ fancy square die. The peach square layer was also stamped w/ the flower image from the Ornate Borders & Flowers images using the rose ink. It’s not really discernible, but adds a nice color variation to the layer. I stamped the flower again on white and stamped the greeting on top using the pine ink before die cutting w/ the matching flower die.

The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.

For my second card, I die cut the beautiful doily out of some handmade ivory paper I’ve had for a long time. I die cut the center out of the ivory and again out of the dp and added the little flower centers of the navy dp into the ivory version. The dp was cut first with a matting basics die then w/ a curved border die and added on top of more of the handmade ivory paper. The bottom portion that was cut off was turned over (it’s double sided paper) and attached on the bottom. The greeting was stamped in the open section ( I had to mask off part as it wouldn’t fit). The knitting basket & yarn images were stamped, lightly colored w/ Copics and die cut w/ the matching dies.

    Julie, these are awesome! I’m really falling in love with these doily stamps and dies and your cards are showing the different ways we can use them. Sooooo pretty! Thank you for sharing with us!

  34. I think I need a dictionary of superlatives – I always end up saying the same thing. That your cards are fantastic and your color combinations can’t be beat. Combined with the dies you used I can’t think how they could possibly be better!

  35. Julie, I love your cards. Love all the colors on your first card and the delicate lacy looking die on the second.

  36. Oh, wow, the coloring on your first doily is so stunning! So many amazing layers on this beauty! I really love the blue card, too! The unique sentiment and the handmade paper makes this special!

  37. Julie, your doily cards are fabulous! Hugs ~S~

  38. Oh wow Julie!!! I LOVE the way your doily came out using the handmade paper!! I will definitely have to try that!
    Your papers and border cuts also make this card look gorgeous! But that doily is outstanding!!! Love your cards!
