HSS82 and SFF Hello Doily

Hello, Friends!

I hope you are as excited for the Labor Day weekend as I am!  It's too hot in Arizona to do much outside.  Okay, anything outside.  So, I'm looking forward to a peaceful, relaxing weekend.  It's been a busy month!  My plan is to clean and do household things on Friday and Saturday so I can spend time with friends and stamp on Sunday and Monday.  I hope you, too, have a safe and happy weekend!

My card today for the Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge features the "Hello, Doily" background stamp.  Because I used shades of purple, it also fits the monochromatic challenge on the Hand Stamped Sentiments blog.  When I first saw it, I decided I didn't need it because it was similar to the Medallion background stamp.  Then, I saw card after card made with it.  Every time I saw it, that stamp would remind me of the doilies my Mom, Grandma, and Great Grandma had made.  It instantly takes me back to their homes as a little kid watching them crochet.  With my Grandma's birthday coming up in a couple of weeks, I knew I wanted to make a special card for her with it.  I hope she likes it!

Happy Stamping! 

I used the following Stampin' Up products to make this card:

Hello, Doily Background Stamp and Petite Pairs Stamp Sets
Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink
Confetti White, Wisteria Wonder, and Elegant Eggplant Card Stock
3/8" Wisteria Wonder Ruffled Ribbon
Large Oval and Scallop Oval Punches

Now check out Deb Currier's blog,, to see the card she made with this sketch.  Then make your own card and share it with us on

I am beginning to like this Doily Stamp more and more! I think you were right to put the darker shading on the outside of the card Great idea!

Angela, this is so pretty! Your grandma will love it. It does remind me of the doilies my grandmother kept under lamps and vases. Very simple and pretty. Thank you for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

Oh very nice! This stamp lends itself so well to monochromatic themes. My grandma will be 90 next week and I need to make her a card but you know I don't remember a SINGLE doily in her house! Didn't ALL grandmas have doilies? LOL. Crazy! The other grandma had them though! I'm sure yours will love it! Thanks for playing with us at Hand Stamped Sentiments!
