Build a Doily.......

Can you say fun?  This tutorial by Betsy was incredible......I mean how incredibly creative is this? 
I had to get to my stamp room and try my own doily!!  As someone on the PTI forum
said, "this is addictive!"  That is an understatement!! 


For this doily, I broke a stamp set that I've never used before ......Border and Corners:  Circle.
The large triple lined circle is from this set as is the "scallops" around the outside just inking up half of them.  The little scrolly image just inside the big circle is also from this set too!  Now for the inside of the doily.....the two other images are from Simply Stationery.  The final image used to my doily was from the set
Vintage Labels.....the scrolly image inside the scallops.  So 3 total sets used to make this!!

Now I don't do vintage very well but I knew I would have to TRY when using a doily!! 
I paired my doily card with LOTS of Chamomile tea dye ink and some wrinkle ribbon I bought on
an Etsy shop a while back called PrairieBirdBoutique and used the Chamomile ink as well as dabs of Chai ink to make it vintage.  The fun vintage crocheted trim is a find from a garage sale this summer.  It was neatly wrapped up and tied with ribbon for 25cents or something crazy like that!


So why don't you give this a try.....it was sooo fun!! 
I'd love to hear what you think about this!

This is gorgeous. Did you cut this out by hand? (as well as the one on your Part 2 card) I love the wrinkled seam binding...it pairs so well with the crochet trim and the doily.

Jill said...

Woo! This is yum-my, Amy! I love the patterned papers you chose to pair, and that's a wonderful doily you made--sort of Scandinavian looking! I love the ticket in white too! Such an attractive card, Amy!
