SAVI Sunday 37 - 4 Ways To Use Square Vellum Doilies

SAVI Sunday - Episode 37:  4 Ways To Use the Square Vellum Doilies

Welcome to this weeks SAVI Sunday video and projects featuring the Square Vellum Doilies from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  This beautiful doilies add just that elegant touch to a projects whether is it a simple designer or one with many layers.  So, I am going to show you both!  Be sure to watch my SAVI Sunday YouTube video linked below. 

1.)  Using the Square Vellum Doilies as they come...


The above card has a Misty Moonlight card base, a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White, and a top layer of Misty Moonlight that is 3-3/4 x 5.   It also features the So Sentimental Bundle full of great words and a fabulous collection of stitched label dies!  The simplicity of this card is easy to replicate but it is so striking too. Don't forget to use Stampin' Dimensionals to add pop to the label. 

The next card has the opposite color theme with a little bit of a twist!

2.)  Adding color to the Square Vellum Doilies...


I used Thick Whisper White for my card base, a layer of Misty Moonlight measuring 4-1/8 x 5-3/8 and a top piece of Whisper White that is 4 x 5-1/4.  Here I used my Sponge Brayer to color the doily to help make it stand out as a focal point.  Again, I added the word label with Stampin' Dimensionals and also some rhinestones for bling. 

Here is probably my favorite of all 4 projects! 

3.)  Don't be afraid to cut apart those doilies...


Using Basic Gray card stock for my base, I cut one doily in half and adhered both to the right side of the card.  The doilies hung off the top and bottom so I simply used my Paper Snips to trim off the excess.  The products featured on this card are all found in the Peony Garden Product Suite, one of my favorites found in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. 

The piece of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper is cut to 2-1/2 x 5-1/2.  I stamped the peony flower, colored with Old Olive and Petal Pink Stampin' Blends and die cut.  It is adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Add some of the beautiful Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon and a few Elegant Faceted Gems to make the card sparkle.

4.)  Sponge mask with the doilies...


So remember back on Card # 2 where I sponged the doily to make it blue (Misty Moonlight)?  Well, this is where this card originated from.  I laid the doily on a piece of Whisper White card stock measuring 4 x 5-1/4 to sponge on the ink.  When I removed the colored doily, I was left with a cool negative image and decide to use it as my background piece of this card. 

The Silver Foil is die cut from the Ornate Layers Dies.  You will need a piece of Silver Foil that is 3-1/2 x 5.  The Whisper White piece is cut from the Rectangle Stitched die that has a final dimension of 1-3/4 x 3-1/8 so cut a piece of card stock slight larger or 2 x 3-1/4.  

I have 3 bells die cut out of Real Red card stock and 3 mini bells from Silver Foil.  I used a total of 6 larger pine sprigs and 6 smaller ones die cut from Shade Spruce card stock.  All layered together with the center bells popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

Here's my video to see how everything came together!

Black-n-White Peony

Hi there... thanks for stopping by.  I have a surprise combination for you with this card project. 

In the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog (aka... holiday catalog as I call it), there is a great product suite called Magic In this Night. You should click on that title and check it out, especially if you love Halloween!  Super cool stuff in that suite. 

For me though, my eyes went right to the Magic in This Night Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I could see right past the Halloween themes and saw the really pretty black-n-white flowers, stripes, and ornate designs.  So that is what I choose as my background paper.  I love how this card came out!

Prized Peony - Framed Card

So I finally received my much anticipated shipment from Stampin' Up!  And in that box, my much anticipated product suite, Peony Garden.  It is gorgeous.  Very elegant and I would say, has muted colors in the Designer Series Paper, Peony Garden DSP.  You HAVE to see it!!!  I am so excited to start playing with the entire suite.  

Today's project is part of my SAVI Sunday Video Series.  I wanted to show how you can take a simple, one-layered card, and step it up to add a little drama, detail, or... well, I guess dimension is the word I am looking for.   I love the simplicity of it and the Peony flower is so pretty and detailed.

Card Base:  Magenta Madness cut 8-1/2 x 5-1/2

Whisper White:  Cut 5-3/8 x 4-1/8

I stamped the flower and words in Memento Black Ink.  

Used my Blender Pen with Magenta Madness and Mossy Meadow inks to color. 

Then I cut a frame out using 2 of the Stitched Rectangle Dies and pieced the frame back to the card with Dimensionals.
