TCM, Simply Delightful

I wanted to take this opportunity to show you a card I created prior to my recent eye surgery, using a stamp set illustrated by Nina Brackett for The Crafts Meow.

 The set is called 'Simply Delightful' - and it certainly lives up to its name!  This set is fabulous for masculine cards as well as those girly ones we love to make.

I have embossed the doily and sentiment with Stampin' Up Gold Embossing Powder and sponged around the edges, the other colours on the doily have been added with my Blender Pens, I have not even added any medium as I am naughty and did not clean them the last time I used them - so there was enough colour for this project - that has to be good - right!?!? LOL!

Cutting them out using my Spellbinders Grand Calibur and the Standard Circle and Ribbon Tags Trio

I have tucked in some pleated paper, left over from the edges of and old hymnal, underneath the sentiment.  I have been holding onto the gorgeous textured DP for some time, it is from my dear friend Priscilla.  I love the softness of it against the striped, torn Stampin' Up DP.

This card is for the following challenges:
Stamp Something - Pretty Papers
Challenge Up Your Life - Circles
2 Sisters - For a Guy

  9. Great way to reserve medium resources, hee hee. The way you've colored this reminds me of a Mandala, which I love to color, rather than a doily. Maybe you could say they are really one in the same! Great way to use a doily image for a man.

  10. A great card Linda, love the colours. Thanks for joining us at Little Claire's.
