Hello Doily Mother's Day and a wedding card

I have recently purchased the Hello Doily stamp after seeing it used by a customer for her wedding invitations. It was stunning. So I have been playing with embossing the image with the Pewter Embossing  Powder. It's beautiful . This card uses Regal Rose card stock as the base, embossed with the Lacy Brocade embossing folder in the big shot. The doily is heat embossed on Crumb Cake card stock. I didnt have any seam binding left so died some white taffeta ribbon with crumb cake ink and loosely gathered it onto a piece of sticky strip.  Hemp thread, a crystal button and some of the soft Flower Trim roses which have been sponged with Regal Rose were added. Lastly I stamped a butterfly from Kindness Matters and 2 leaves from French Foliage in Certainly Celery, which I hand cut out and mounted with dimensionals. Happy mothers day is  is stamped from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments set. I will miss the Regal Rose colour when it retires. Inside is also finished with matching DSP and some of the first edition Paper. Thanks for looking, cheers, Liz
The card for class this week for Mother's Day, Pretty in Pink sponged over White Embossing Powder.

Made with the Offcuts from the previous card

using up scraps from my collections,

a Wedding card using Hello Doily stamped in Clear Embossing Powder on Baja Breeze Cardstock, sponged with Midnight Muse ink and layered over First Edition DSP. Soft Floral Trim roses and Little Leaves Sizzlits in Garden Green. There is also a Baja Breeze border using the lace trim punch(retired).
The Mr & Mrs stamp is in Midnight Muse and is then inked with the Champagne Glimmer Mist. 

And 2 last photos - so easy to use this Hello Doily stamp. Pewter embossed on Black, Very Vanilla Seam binding, and Very Vanilla 1/8"Taffeta Ribbon and a wooden key( from my stash) which I inked with the Champagne Glimmer Mist. I love the Sahara sand layers with the Pewter.  Thanks for looking Liz
