I have determined that today is going to be a lava-free day for me, which mainly means no checking up on the status of the lava that’s wrecking the area of the Island of Hawai’i where I lived for so long.
It also means that I’m taking the time to look over many of the cards that I’ve received from friends over the last month or so, and trying to find some commonalities so that I can share a concept with you here. Today I found a batch of cards where the new Pearlized Doilies have snuck in behind a featured stamped image or sentiment. Sneaky little critters they are!
These first two cards both feature the same Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper set, and stamped images from the Love What You Do Stamp Set. And those lovely doilies are right there between the sentiments and the Designer Series Papers!
This next card also features a sheet from the same paper set, along with the Lovely Floral Embossing Folder. And there’s a doily peeking out from behind the sentiment, stamped with images from the Love What You Do set.
The Lovely Floral Embossing Folder shows up in this next card, too.
And so does the set of Designer Series Paper – that little floral element in front of the sentiment is cut from a sheet of the paper. Oooh, and there’s just a piece of a doily popping in the middle.
These last two cards also use texture in the background. The first uses the Polka Dot Basics embossing folder, and the last one uses a new technique featuring the Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies with the Big Shot Embossing Mats, which I can hardly wait to try out. This set of Framelits Dies can be bundled with the Rooted In Nature Stamp Set (that’s where the sentiment originated) for a 10% discount!
This card also uses the Varied Vases Bundle that’s featured in my latest Tutorial Booklet. There’s more about this in the notes at the end of this post.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this introduction to the fun new Pearlized Doilies. Hey, something that sneaks around like this embellishment does has got to be fun, right??
