I have a few laying around the house, providing a stunning base for an ordinary household item such as a lamp, or a vase.
They are all intricate in design, various sizes and shapes, but I treasure them all the same.
They are doilies hand crocheted from my mother’s mother, a fine and talented woman.
The Gertie “Girly” Stamps from My Mind’s Eye Stella and Rose Collection reminded me so much of Grandma’s Heirlooms.
I searched the internet for inspiration and found many stunning displays of doilies that could easily be transformed in a card format.
(simply click on the inspiration image to be taken to the source sight)
Each card features the stamping technique, heat embossing.
Let’s start with a bit of sparkle. Doilies, Diamonds and Pearls.
Perfect for a congratulatory wedding or engagement card.
In addition to the white embossed doilies, I added a fancy sentiment that was heat embossed in silver and a few small pearls as accents.
Moving from the glitz and glam to the comfort of home. Doilies and Woodgrain.
And finally, doilies bring an extra special touch to holiday decorating. Doilies. Snow. A touch of blue.
There are so many opportunities for this one beautiful stamp set! I now have a good start to a card set to give as a Christmas or Birthday gift.
I’m thinking that my Grandmother might like these…
Thanks, and I’ll catch you later. ~ Karen, The Bald Dragonfly
