Introducing Doodlie-Do...

(First of all, let me apologize for the construction on my blog - still working on creating a new look, so bear with me, not quite finished yet!) Today the Papertrey Ink girls are sharing projects made with a fun stamp set called Doodlie-Do. This brand new set will be available for purchase on Jan. 15th at 10pm EST at www.papertreyink.com.

What a pretty set, don't you think?

I used the flowers and leaf stamps on vellum, embossed with white embossing powder. The sentiment is from a new set called Words of Comfort. I like how the white on white is very soothing, perfect for a sympathy card. But also elegant, which would work great for a wedding or anniversary card as well!

After embossing the top portion of the vellum (left the bottom portion open for some white space), I cut a white cardstock base and dropped several Fresh Mint sequins by Pretty Pink Posh onto the paper. To get them to look more random, I simply dropped them on and adhered them where they landed! That's my little trick for sequins. Don't think about the placement too much, or it will drive you crazy. :)

Next, I layered the vellum paper over the sequin paper and machine-stitched them together at the top of the card.

Last, I adhered three little white sequins onto the front centers of the flowers.


May You Find Strength card:
STAMPS: Words of Comfort, Doodlie-Do
INK: Versamark
PAPER: white, vellum
DIES: none
OTHER: white embossing powder, sequins by PrettyPinkPosh.com, chipboard stars by Studio Calico.
----------

On my second card, I embossed onto colored cardstock and trimmed it out with my scissors. 
I did use some of the leftover vellum leaves from the first card. 
(I always practice my designs on another sheet of paper first, so I had some leaves leftover from the first project.)

Another sentiment from Words of Comfort was used on this card.

INK: Versamark
PAPER: Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Melon Berry, vellum

What stunning cards, Danielle! The first is simply elegant, and the second is so soothing...reminds me of a beach scene. I absolutely LOVE your tip about the sequins! I think my problem has been finding where to put them and the idea of "drop and glue" is perfect! :)

I love your white on white. So soft and pretty. Like the second card too, especially the cut out vellum leaves. Both make very nice sympathy (and other occasion) cards.

Beautiful cards!!! I love how you used the sequins on the first, and thanks for the tip! I constantly over think sequins placement. I think I'm just going to have to let it go and try just dropping them like you do. Your card is proof that it works wonderfully.
