Sweet Nothin's

Have you seen the new Doily files from Boss Kut? SWOON!! Doilies are super trendy right now and so fun to work with. Here's a sweet Valentine card I made to send to my mom...

I really like making square cards so I made this one 5x5. After adding a few layers of patterned paper I sized and cut the new Heart Doily file. I trimmed a bit off the edge and layered it, adding some crinkled ribbon trim. I thought it needed some sparkle so I covered the doily with some Smooch ink. Next, I colored Sugar 'n Spice Marci with my Copic markers, fussy cut her then adhered her with dimensional adhesive. After stamping the sentiment I thought it needed a bit more so I took a few of the hearts that were leftover from the doily cut and colored them with Copics and Smooch and added one to the bow and one to the sentiment. Tip: Always look at your negatives after'd be surprised at how many "usable" pieces you will find!!

Copics used:
skin: R00, R02, E00, E04, W1
hair: YR31, E55, E59
hearts: RV29, R83
clothes: (dress, bow, cupcake top) R81, R83, R85, (shoes) BV23, BV29, (apron and cupcake wrapper) Y21, Y23, Y26, (spoon) E35, E39

Hope you're having a great week!! I'll be back tomorrow with a video sharing how to airbrush with Copics using a compressor. Hope you'll stop by!

Very cute, Katie!!! :) It sounds crazy (I shouldn't admit it!), but I need to think outside the box more. I love the way you cut & only used part of the doily! It looks great!

Thanks for sharing (& I'm looking forward to learning more about Copics!)!
