Farewell Doodle

A set that I have loved for several years is Doodle This. Its whimsical style is right up my stampin' alley. But in just a few short days, Doodle This, will be 'retired', along with lots of other stamps from the Last Chance List. Don't miss out!

  • I love today's simple layout, inspired by Card Positioning Sketch #121. Instead of a standard greeting card, I opted for a 6.5" square, flat note. (I found some new vellum envelopes at the local craft store to accomodate this size.)
  • I created my background using two 6" square pieces of Designer Series paper. The Basic Gray floral is from the current Level 1 hostess Patterns Paper Pack II... the More Mustard is from retired Autumn Vine.
  • I cut 1.5" strips and wove them together.
  • A 1" strip of Vanilla is topped with .75" Basic Gray. The sentiment, 'forever your friend', is from Hidden Garden rub-ons. (available on the Last Chance Accessories List)
  • My Doodle This flowers were stamped onto Really Rust and More Mustard in StazOn and heat embossed using clear embossing powder. I adhered them using Stampin' Dimensionals and added a silver Vintage Brad for my sassy something.
  • Do you love this color combo? I was inspired by Kristina Werner... she hosts fab. color challenges with original and fresh combinations.
Despite bidding some of our current favorites farewell, the NEW 2009-10 Idea Book and Catalog is INCREDIBLE! You will be WOWed... get ready... only 8 more days!

Great card and use of the stamp! I'm not sorry to see this one go - I bought it but I struggled with using it. I guess it's just not my style.
Thanks for sharing!
