    Hand Knit 04634
    Well…today’s Color Challenge  (CC497) is certainly challenging! I doubt that in a million years I would have ever put these color together. So they were definitely a challenge. The other challenging part is that I don’t own these colors (other than a vanilla) so I had to sub with what I had. I do have samples of these colors, so mine are pretty close..which is good since I couldn’t even find any dp in my neglected stash that used these colors. The vanilla doily was already die cut (from another project that didn’t get used) so at least I was ahead w/ that. For the blackberry-like bg, I stamped a pattern that reminded me of a quilt pattern w/ the elderberry ink on top. The yarn and basket were stamped w/ combos of the elderberry & plum inks then die cut.

    The greeting is actually a combo of two that I put together then punched w/ a tag punch. A bow w/ just the right color of thread spool button on top was added w/ the tag. The narrow yellow ribbon was colored w/ a Copic to match.

    Thanks so much for stopping by!

    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.
