#SSINK Doilies & Lace

Good morning!  I love Fridays because the weekend is almost here.  This weekend I look forward to New Years and plan to spend lots of time decorating my beautiful Love Today Planner Kit!  Washi Tape, colored pens, and brainstorming about my goals for 2018!  You can order one HERE & get yourself organized with this inspiring journal!

Today I’m showing you a card using doilies & lace!  It’s fun to browse around Pinterest looking for ideas for Vintage cards, but I’m not sure this qualifies as “Vintage” with these bright colors.   What do you think?

I LOVE the colors in this card!  Lemon Lime Twist & Pool Party.  And the more I use the Quilted Christmas Bundle, the more I like it!!  The Designer Series Paper is Painted Autumn.  I colored the Rhinestone using Pool Party Stampin’ Blends.

Below are easy ordering links for the products used on today’s card:

 

 

#SSINK Quilted Christmas Favorite Designer Series Paper

When my husband & I were first married (32 years ago!), we lived in Salt Lake City for 3 years.  What a great place to live!!  Great skiing & hiking so close to the city!  And great opportunities to learn how to quilt!  There was an amazing quilt store that I’d spend hours in, that offered quilting classes!  I started off by making stuffed hearts & a bear on a string that all had cute quilting.  Later I made a Christmas Tree Skirt where we’d hand-dyed angels all around it, then quilted by hand.  And after awhile, my sweet neighbor, Ardella, encouraged me to come over several days a week while she helped me make a Queen sized quilt!  We sort of adopted each other & she was like a mom to me & Pat early in our marriage.  We were so blessed to have her in our lives!

So it’s not surprising that I’ve been drawn to the Quilted Christmas Suite!  Beautiful stamps & Framelits that coordinate with Stitched Felt Embellishments, ribbon & Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder!

Here’s the beautiful coordinating 6X6 Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper.  I love the non-traditional colors in there… blushing bride, lemon lime twist, and pool party!
