Wedding/Celebration Stationery by Julie Lavalette


Hi Everyone, It's Julie here today. With the Wedding Season fast approaching I thought it would be nice to share some Invitations with you today, that could easily be adapted for any other celebration/occasion. 


Here is a close up photograph of my Wedding Invitation. In the aligning up of the dies Sandy shows how to do this in a Tutorial HERE, so I won't go into details. 


My words were stamped using Archival Ink and a little Stickles was added for sparkle, along with some gems. I attached my ribbon using extra strong tape tucking in the edges before matting onto my card.


My Evening Invitation compliments the Wedding one. I stamped directly onto my card with Archival Ink adding on my mats and layers, Stickles and a few gems. I kept this card simple, so several could be made should you have a lot of invitations to make.


My Place Settings were made be cutting out the scalloped rectangle, scoring down the middle and adding my die cut layer. Bride and Groom were handwritten on. You could also computer generate your names and cut out before layering on.

Hope you have enjoyed my post. Good Luck to everyone entering our weekly challenge.
Have a great weekend,

Happy Thoughts Card by Corina Finley


Hello....Happy thoughts coming your way....from me to you!

Corina here with you today, to share my Spring inspired card!

The vibrant floral pattern paper, sentiment word paper and white cardstock was the starting point. I die cut these papers with the French Flair Stacker die set.

I then added the Polynesian Sails Oval Doily on top of the French Flair Stacker. I stamped my sentiment on a white Coved Rectangle Stacker die cut and matted it on a Scalloped Coved Rectangle Stacker die cut. I then placed it in the center but slipped it under the left side of the Polynesian Sails Oval Doily.


I cut the Mega Fanciful Flourish from white cardstock and inked with Evergreen Bough Distress ink and sprayed with Goosebumps clear texture spray. I created two Chrysanthemum Strip flowers and used Spun Sugar Distress ink on one and worn lipstick ink on the other.

My new favourite "filler" flower is the dandelions die. I tuck a few here and there as a "Baby's Breath" style of flower.

I could not resist adding beading to the inner circle of the Polynesian Sails Oval Doily. I thing that this touch adds elegance to the card.

Dandelions (Set of 2) - B453

Layered Doily Dies with Rhonda

Happy Thursday crafty friends!  It's Rhonda here today to host the blog for you. My project today is a square card.

"Hello" (5x5 card)

I love the pretty layers of our doily dies and how they add such a delicate touch to your project. Here I'm showcasing a few of our newer dies, the Royal Scandinavian Doily and the Florence Filigree Doily. The steps that I used to create this card are:
  • To start I used a 5x5 card base in white card stock. 
  • Next I added the square scalloped layer.
  • This was followed by the Royal Scandinavian Doily in light pink card stock. 
  • Then I added the Florence Filigree Doily with foam adhesive for dimension. 
  • I cut a layer using the Horizon Circle Boutique Stacker medium die.
  • The Bird Cage was added on top.


  • Cut the Daisy Strip, misted lightly with water, shaped and formed the layers and adhered.
  • Add the Princess Tree and arrange under the Daisy.
  • Hummingbird was cut next, then cut the wing a second time and attach to behind the bird. Ink edges and attach with foam adhesive for dimension.
  • Final step is to cut the smallest Horizon Fishtail Banner and trim to fit. Add sentiment by stamping or using a rub-on. Shape and attach by tucking under the Daisy.
  • Finishing touches were to add a pearl for an eye on the Hummingbird and gems in the corners of the Royal Scandinavian Doily.

Daisy Heart Card


Sandy, here with you today.  I have created a romantic card using my Horizon Square Boutique Stacker Frame.  I love the delicate edge of this die.  I began my card with a brown 5 3/4" square card base.  To this I added a peach DP panel 5 1/2" square and then the largest die from the boutique set die cut from brown card stock.  Using more DP, I added a 4 5/8" DP panel to the boutique panel. Next came the border panel created using my Lady Kate Edger and brown card stock and more DP.  Lots of layers on this card, now we come to the Heart to Heart Doily.  This is a great die as you get three lace hearts each with solid backers.  Lots of possible combinations with this die.  I used the middle die of the set and added the solid DP heart to the center.


Using my Shasta Daisy and Embellishments #3, I created 6 flowers.  This flower die is great as you get 3 sizes, 2 of each with just one pass through your die cut machine.  I curled the edges of the petals and pressed down on the center of the flowers to shape them.  Lastly I added some greenery using the Rose Leaf Strip and added some gem accents.

Dream Big Springtime Tag


Happy Tuesday everyone! leslierahye here sharing a spring tag! I love the colors purple and green together and with watercolor it has a wonderful spring feel. I used the Dutch Daisy Borders, Boutique stackers and doilies to complete this tag! All pieces started out as file folder and were hand water colored with greens and purples. 

I began by cutting the border dies out of the bottom of the tag. I used the border edger and the negative space die from Border Set #2. The base was then watercolored with greens and spotted. The center of the Dutch Daisy Doily was used as a stencil to apply watercolor and ink in the corner. 

Next a ½" strip of folder was colored green and placed the ribbon-like strip from the Border Set #1 on top--it was also cut from file folder and painter purple.  The sentiment square was colored green and the negative shape of the Dutch Daisy Doily was stenciled on there as well. The doily and the sentiment square were layered on the tag. Crystal Bling was added above the cut daisies and a dot for the "i" in  the word "big".

Daisy Card by Cohenna

Hello there, it's Monika. Today I wanted to show you a layered card. 
Preparing the card is very simple. Check it out.

I trimmed the edge of the frame to make it thinner

On violet base I glued a smaller square. It's slanted and popped up.
Then I glued the frame but again on an angle.
I glued only in the middle - around the diamond which is in the center. 
There is no need to attach more. This will be done when we add flowers.

See the great dimension of the layers.

Now it is time for the flowers and leaves. I did daisies in orange and 
yellow ink. You can arrange them in many positions

Have fun with your own creation.
