It seems that everyone forgets their manners, and just thinks that every thing is acceptable like walking six abreast the street when there are a million cars trying to get home after the fireworks. Not to mention that they are all dressed in black or dark clothing or that most of them are in very high spirits if you know what I mean. Well it is good for the the business folk and the town alike but I rather stay home and hang out with you guys and my cards.
Speaking of cards I finally pulled out my new doily stamps that I have been itching to try out. I happen to love the look of vintage and I knew what I would be doing with this as soon as I did get around to inking it up. Well enough jibber jabber here is my card.
I used white for my card base but you can not see that of course, my next layer was Soft Suede, then I stamped several of the Delicate Dollies some in first generation Soft Suede some in second generation on Very Vanilla. In case you don't know second generation just means I did not re ink the stamp.
Then I used Versa Mark on the Large Doily Background stamp and embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I sponged Soft Suede ink all over it and the rest of the Very Vanilla piece.
I tied a piece of Seam binding ribbon and added as a second thought the 1/8" taffeta ribbon in Early Espresso. I pulled a centre string in the seam binding to give it that scrunched look.
I stamped the sentiment which seemed very fitting as I can remember when every table in the living room and bedrooms all had doilies on them. I stamped it in Early Espresso and used one of my Nestabilities die to cut it out.
Hope you like it and if you need to order it please call me 204-642-8049. Thanks
