Pretty Pastels 39

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, September 22, 2010 @ 11:27 PM | ,




Happy Fall!! It's hard to believe that Fall has officially arrived when the temps are still in the high 90's, low 100's here in Phoenix. What is the weather like in your neck of the woods? About this card, while browsing around Michael's craft store recently, I found these gorgeous flower embellishments & immediately thought how pretty they would look when paired with a few of my favorite goodies!

For sketch inspiration, I played along with this week's Card Patterns Sketch #82. It seems as though paper doilies are quite trendy, don't you think? I thought I would create my own paper doily by combining a S4-293 Lacey Circle die template, a S4-116 Standard Circles SM & a I2-1009 Flourish Impressabilities® template. I inked up an image from Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels No. 4 set with VersaMark, embossed with white embossing powder then stamped the Thank You sentiment from Rescue Remedies Additions & added a lil' decorative flourish. To cut/emboss the white embossed label, I used a S4-190 Labels Four die template. Claire includes so many darling lil' flourishes within various sets, perhaps I can beg her to design an entire set of gorgeous Flourishes ;)

Take a look at all the various sized doilies you can cut with just one die template set!

That's all I have for today = thanks so much for looking! Be Sweet!

Supplies Used: Stamps: Waltzingmouse Rescue Remedies Additions, Very Vintage Labels No. 4 Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S4-293 Lacey Circles, S4-116 Standard Circles SM, S4-190 Labels Four, I2-1009 Flourish Impressabilities®, GC-001 Grand Calibur

Hi Mona ! This is a lovely card. Love all the soft colors and the romantic look. Here in Mexico City we're having a rather rainy autumn. Lots of hurricanes hitting the coasts :( but in a few weeks it should be lovely. My favorite time actually cool weather and no rain. :D

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

So soft and pretty! I have been eyeing on that doily die cut for a while, they just dont have it here at Michaels' near me. : (

Julia Aston said...

Your flower, patterned paper and lacey nestie all look wonderful on this pretty card Mona - Michaels has lots of lovely flowers in their wedding section that work beautifully on cards (as long as you're not going to mail them!!! LOL!)
