Doilyflake Sketch

I am in LOVE with this week's sketch by Claire at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge blog!  I can see myself going back to this sketch over and over again!  It's one of my faves of all time...


I was absolutely inspired by JJ Bolton's doilicious card that was a Top Mouse winner a few weeks ago seen HERE!  It was so special that it also claimed a prize in the Moxie Fab World Medallion Challenge(Actually JJ claimed an award for 2 beautiful medallion cards, first time ever on the Moxie Fab blog :)!

Here is my doily gone snowflake card...


The papers are from October Afternoon's Holiday Style Collection that just arrived last week (I pre-ordered them in October knowing that they would be a perfect fit for me!).  The sentiment is from the lovely Compliments of the Season set, all embossed in white.


Also used new Fresh Ink by Impress Rubber Stamps in the color "Blue Sage".  It was my birthday present to myself :)  Stamped 3 doilies from Dainty Doilies 2-Small and cut them out with Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Circles Large Nestabilities.  Typically I am stingy with my use of pearls and rhinestones.  I am always afraid of running out of them!  Well let me tell you, it's fun to use almost a whole pack on one card! 

All ready to be wowed as I always am when I see what you do with this sketch!  Upload your creation HERE by next Friday, December 16th.  Be sure to include at least one Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your card to be eligible to be the randomly-selected winner who will receive a WMS stamp set of choice!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Dainty Doilies 2-Small, Compliments of the Season, both Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  Holiday Style patterned paper by October Afternoon, PTI Vintage Cream
Ink:  Fresh Ink in Blue Sage, Versamark
Other:  Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Circles Large Nestabilities, Sky Blue rhinestones, ivory pearls, and white embossing powder from A Muse Studio, lots of dimensionals!

Beautiful card, Kelly. You turned 40 and the card is even more pretty than before. How lovely all the pearls and rhinestones. Thanks for the inspiration!

I love this one Kelly, the beautifully stamped doilies; I have to use mine very soon and I am totally impressed that you used all those sparklies (as I call them). I know how you mean about not wanting to run out of them. Great card this week, as always.

First of all, Happy Belated Birthday! Life definitely does get better with age--trust me, I know! Love your wonderful wintery card! Claire's doily sets are the greatest. Another thing on my ever growing wish list. And that patterned paper is so gorgeous. I love all the bling--so worth raiding your stash!

Thank you for your kind comments on my No Peeking Tag. Your tag is amazing!! I love these wintery colors and especially all the sparkle!

JJ Bolton said...

This card is spectacular! Love every bit of it! From the colors to the paper patterns to the bling, it's a stunning combination. And the blue sage ink you used is such a pretty soft color. I absolutely love the die you used to cut the doilies. Works with them perfectly!

P.S. I'm so honored by all the kind words on my work. You and the rest of the WM crew are a remarkable bunch, and your words mean more than you know. JJ
