Doily Trend

I love doilies. Which is weird because I don't consider myself a doily-type of girl. Although I don't really know what that type would be. I am always tempted by the medallion and doily stamps that are so popular right now. But I dug around my older stash of stamps and found a set from Close To My Heart called Endless Love. And it had just the stamp I wanted!


It's not really a doily, but it's a big circle with added stuff around it. Which I think IS the scientific term for a doily. I stamped it about 3/4 of the way on my white cardstock, then added that to a purple cardstock base. A few strategically places gems, some yellow cardstock, 2buttons,  and a Papertrey Ink sentiment and my card was finished. Oh wait, and some baker's twine!!


It's been a long time since I used this set! I am so glad I found it, I love that big round fancy stamp. This stamp set is going on top of my stamp pile, so I can reach for it again soon. Tell me...do you like doilies? Do you use them? What's your favorite doily/medallion stamp set (if you have one)??

Thanks for stopping by today!

What a great card. I don't think of myself as a doily girl either. I'm more clean lines and graphic. But I bought the PTI doily set when it was released because some of those images reminded me of my old spirograph.

What a cute card! I love the stamp and how you did it 3/4 on the card and added the rhinestones! I like doilies, but don't use them. I'm kinda behind the times though, so when they start to lose there popularity I'll start using them! Haha!

I think that is how websters defines doily too!!

I too am a big doily fan. It was one of the first cuts I bought for the cameo! It was a must to me...but I have yet to actually use it :)

Great card Mara! I adore the gems and the twine.

I love the doily... cute but not too frilly, KWIM?
I don't own any doily stamps... I have circles, but nothing that fancy. It's such a CUTE set! The purple and yellow is a great color combo! I LOVE IT!

LOVE it! It is so funny because my Grandma had a doily collection and we used to kind of give her a hard time about it (in a teasing way) but now I totally wish I had her doilies and it makes me sad that I dont know where they went.
