Stampin' on Friday (2/15/13) Hello Sweet Friend

Hi Everyone,
Sorry about the delay with today's Stampin' on Friday :) I was all ready last night to film and this terrible headache hit me :( I'm feeling much better today :)

I've been having so much fun adding paper doilies to my projects, like the sketch book I showed you on Monday and another card that I will be showing next week. I wanted to add one to this card as well but I only have white so I pulled out my parisian lace Paper Trey Ink die and made one with Vintage Cream card stock. So much fun

Watch below | Watch on You Tube

I hop you enjoyed today's video. Have a great weekend everyone :)
Hugs and happy crafting,

  3. Dear Christina,
    Thank you so much for making such an adorable card for "ME"! LOL tee hee (jk) I LOVE IT!!!!
    seriously, i always think when you post a new card that it cannot be topped but here you go again, a card that is beyond cute...i cannot get over the creative ideas you put to fruition....there are so many crafters, and so many great ideas, but at the end of the day, you win! others just do not compare to you..I heart you <3 Hugs Marianne

  4. It was worth the wait! Glad you're feeling better today. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Love these colors and that stamp and die set of the telephone is soooo cute! I love that Parisian doily die....I bought that a while back too....I need to drag that thing out and use it!

    Glad you're better!


  6. Can you give a link or post the name of the tool you used to take the little pieces out of the doily? That would be SO helpful ~ it takes forever to pick all the little pieces out of those intricate doily dies!!
    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this card! Such pretty colors!

  7. I realy love this card would be so easy for batch cardmaking love love love it.

  8. Great card. I hope you are feeling better. You did a great job on the card!

  9. I love this card. So simple but classy and the paper is perfect. I don't have a die but I'm sure there must be a Cricut cut doily I can use to CASE this card.

  10. Christina this is a beautiful card!!! You are an enabler tho lol. After watching this video, I purchased that lace doilie and the tool to go with it!! LOL

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  12. Very very cute card Christina! I love the colors

  13. Once again, another beautiful card. Yes, it really needed a ribbon to finish it off.

  14. Love your card, as I do all of your cards. Thanks for the tip of pulling on the little foam feet on the stamp press. I'm going to try it on the one I have, though I think I have a little larger one than what you're showing. Maybe it will work and I'll like it better, because I'm not very fond of it myself.

  15. I love the doily die. Such a sweet card. I scraplift so many ideas from yoy. Hope you don't mind.

  16. Hello Christina

    You never disappoint with your lovely cards, this one is no exception.
    Just a little bit of info for you, you mentioned when doing this card about the fiddly bits when taking out the die cut doily, here in the UK we have been using and quite successfully a piece of baking or greaseproof paper on the die first then the paper/card before putting through your die cutter. The die comes out with ease and in most cases the little pieces that cause problems seem to drop out easier, it might be worth giving it a go to see if it works for you. Also I was one of those crafters who asked about the Martha Steward stamp press some time ago and you very kindly replied to me.
    Thanks for the inspiration and enthusiasm you extend to us crafters everywhere across the globe.

  17. Love your project as always. The card is beautiful & you make it sound so easy! I may be wrong....so please forgive me if I am, but I think I got the Martha Stewart Big Stamp Mount, because you liked it so well. I can see though that the smaller one would be so much better. It's possible that it was not even available when you got the big one. Again, I may be wrong. Won't be the first time & it sure won't be the last time! lol


  18. Beautiful card, Christina. I enjoy your projects and especially your videos. Thanks for all that you do!

  19. I don't think it really needs to be perfect, but the perfectionist inside of me tends to scream a bit :). Anyway, I always love seeing your videos and you give me so much inspiration. You also remind me that I need to carve out time (more often) to craft. Thanks!
