This is my second post of the day - for my Ribbon Reel DT card, please click here or scroll down. Thanks so much.
This week sees the second week of the CR84FN#46 Color Challenge, WMSC#81 over at the Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge Blog and a new challenge at DYSU - #55 Designer Paper.
I couldn't wait to ink up my new Dainty Doilies set by Waltzingmouse Stamps and decided I would do a kind of "one sheet wonder" and design my own patterned paper to use on a card and cover a little heart shaped box I've had in my stash for WAY too long now ;). But first, the card...both these shots show you a little more of my doily background paper and the gorgeous sentiment taken from the 'Say It Loud' set by Waltzingmouse stamps.
I stamped the small doily shapes from this set in a very random way using pink, yellow and antique linen ink onto some cream cardstock - I just kept adding doilies until I was happy with the look. I then cut out a piece for my card, used Spellbinder Labels One to cut out the beautiful ornate square shape, exposing some of the pink cardstock base below. I stamped one of the awesome WMS Very Vintage Labels One images in Versamark ink and heat embossed using some pearlescent embossing powder. I used the 'Wonderful Wings' butterfly die set by Donna Salazar for Spellbinders and cut one solid yellow butterfly and then layered this with co-ordinating cut out butterfly. I added some little pink twine antennae and a sweet pink rose. The pink wings are so sheer IRL!
Here's a shot of that sweet heart box. I simply drew and then cut around the lid and stuck on with glue, I measured and cut a complete strip to cover the base - the lid was quite a tight fit, so I had to measure the height of the strip of paper with the lid on. I edged the lid with pink seam binding and pearl lace trim from The Ribbon Reel and then added another yellow and pink butterfly to the top of the lid.
and this is where I took my inspiration from:
