Trio of Cards...and Colors!

I was itching to make some doily cards today but knew my time would be very limited so I opted for very simple cards.  I really like the results though!  Here is my finished set of cards.

Aren't those bright colors just yummy!! Oh my!! I am so in love with this new Royal Velvet purple cardstock!!

This was the first card in the set that I made.  I didn't get my doilies perfectly lined up, but for a first second attempt it wasn't totally awful so I went with it!  I used 3 doily stamps.  The tiniest one is stamped on the Hawaiian Shores cardstock and the the flower is adhered to it.  I wanted to hang a little piece over the edge of the card again as I like the element that that adds to a card.

Here is doily card #2.  Again, the doily isn't perfect but usable! :)  I didn't stamp this one quite as far off the side as the one above so more of the doily fills the card.  I kept with the same simple design though.  Isn't that twine on the side so cute!! I love it!

And, finally, here is doily card #3.  My middle doily is way off center but hopefully I'll get the hang of it soon.  I used Champagne VersaMark to stamp the doilies on all of these cards and I love how it has a soft subtle glitter to it!! To match that I sprayed some clear glimmer mist on my twine to add a little shine and let it dry.   It is just a very subtle glitter look and next time I'll probably add another coat or two to make it more noticeable.

Well, time to get supper ready!  Have a great day!!  Thanks for stopping by!
