Another Stampin' Up! Delicate Doilies card


Sorry for the lack of blog posts this last week!
That's all I can say about it really and the only excuse is work and no play.

I am so itching to get my hands on my new Stampin' Up! products I have a box full of new stuff and one little stamp is called Triple Treat Flower it's all alone in a box, one of the AlaCarte stamps, I am hoping to ink it up this morning before I get ready for today's class.  I am seeing a couple of ladies who I haven't seen in ages Annette and Anne, I just want to say to Annette, thank you so much for all your comments you leave on my blog, I really appreciate them and when you get your blog set up I will be able to return the comments.  Now you have a challenge eh?

So onto this little number as I said in the title another Delicate Doilies card this time using basic black, melon mambo and whisper white so striking with melon mambo don't you think? oh! there is a little secret on this card..........


The flowers are cut out pieces from the Lace Ribbon Border punch and an added pearl to finish them off the larger of the flowers has a small piece of 1/8" black taffeta ribbon thread through it.

The whisper white is Kraft ink embossed with white embossing powder.  Now for the secret bit......I messed up and forgot to use the embossing buddy before I stamped and embossed the doilies as the card idea originally was just going to be black and white!!! well when I embossed it I got little flecks of the white powder on the black card........... so that's when the Melon Mambo punched ribbon pieces came to the rescue!!! I liked it better with the addition, what about you?

anyway off to ink up Triple Treat Flower and get ready for my class

...........Until next time ........ be crafty .........

  1. Hello Peg !
    A girl after my own heart, if you mess it up stick some ribbon over it and no one will ever know !!!
    The embossing really makes the lace design pop on this card and such a dramatic colour scheme, it has worked so well.
    I have made some changes to my blog, hopefully for the better !!!
